Hey there. Thank you for passing through and reading this. If you don't know who I am, I am anti.clvtch, and I run an instagram page, @anti.clvtch:
This year's New York Fashion Week was mostly a peaceful parade of beautiful and interesting clothes. Mostly.
If you’re into pop culture and fashion, then you know New York Fashion Week (NYFW) just wrapped. And while we saw amazing, beautiful, new, and radical bodies on the runway for DapperQ, TomboyX, SavagexFenty, and Chromat, was NYFW truly as inclusive as it could be?
As the days are getting darker quicker and the temperature begins to drop, it’s important to know what fashion statements are beginning to occur at the end of this year. In the year of trends such as bike shorts and blazers, animal print, and neon coloured everything, 2019 has become the year of mix and matching styles to create your own unique look. This year has allowed all demographics to perfect their styles while keeping up with the latest trends. Social media influencers like Love Island star Molly-Mae Hauge (@mollymaehauge) and Instagram famous fashion blogger Lydia Abraham (@fashioninflux) have already began to highlight the staple pieces you need for this winter, with many high-street fashion retailers plugging the same styles. So, what do us ladies wear this winter? Here’s some outfit ideas for these chilly months to come…
I remember walking into a very busy Victoria's Secret store and I was greeted by a lovely retail assistant who introduced herself and gave me a little card to fill out, which included questions about what kind of garments I wanted to try on, and the different styles I wanted to see. I was also asked if I needed to be sized, or if I already knew my bra size. This type of customer service in a retail store in this day and age is hard to come by. Even comparative brand "Savage x Fenty" doesn't offer the same kind of in person customer service as it is predominantly online.
Whether it’s back-to-school season or simply the kickoff to fall, your kids are going to need new clothes. Winter is just around the corner. Being a parent of two small boys, I am always looking for sales or bargains... basically low prices. I have to be a lot smarter when I shop these days.
Fall is basically here. In LA, the weather is supposed to be a high of 72 today. There’s a faint yellow-orange glow filter on everything outside. It’s just not summer anymore, you know? Which is fine by me. Fall is when my best clothes come out.
2019 may just be the best year for fashion, as we have so many styles and pieces from each distinctive era behind us to mix and match the best of the best statement pieces over the years. Each of these looks were crafted with a passion and ingenuity that has helped define generations, so it should be no surprise that fashion has maintained its status over the years. It seems, too, that fashion has been getting a bad rap lately, especially with fads like fast fashion and industry standards being carefully under scrutiny. One thing that is beloved about this community though is their ability to put on a show, so what better way to honor that then pointing out the best things about Fashion Weeks all over the world?
I recently discovered the Second Hand September challenge via the wonderful world of Instagram. The premise of the challenge is that you don't buy ANYTHING new for the entire month of September, and in turn you help save the planet, and you also probably help you bank account out as well.
