So, my birth month is December and what better way to celebrate than to have a head to toe make over?!
After all, It has been a while since I’ve departed from my usual plain Jane appearance; so I decided I’d splurge a bit and who better to splurge on than yourself?! Right! Especially when you deserve it!
Now, I have heard things about Fashion Nova, I have heard great things about Fashion Nova. I mean everyone, their mother, aunt and grand mother’s cat shop at Fashion Nova. (Let me just put this out there, I hate shopping!)
Not to mention the rave reviews by their cultish following about their affordable prices and holy grail jeans that are perfect for broke ass-less people like me.
And since Fashion Nova has become a household name and my closet is also benefiting from this make over, I decided to give it a go and see what all the hoopla was about.
Imagine my epic disappointment when I took my ‘happy-go-lucky-P-shaped-slightly-relaxed-boobs-depressed-ass’ self online to visit the site!
As if being a woman isn’t hard enough, living everyday with unrealistic societal ‘standards’ of what your body should like, Fashion Nova ups and has models with freakishly tiny waists, perfectly perky titties, and asses that could have only come from the gods. Hourglass shaped models if you will.
I was like WTF, ‘if that’s the way those clothes are suppose to fit, then I am hopeless.’ There’s no way anything at all on that site would fit me anywhere close to the way they fit the models. I was intimidated! Yes, I know, they don’t ever fit you like they fit the models, but c’mon, give a sister some hope why don’t ya.
After I got over the shock of how ‘perfectly’
photoshopped shaped these models were, I was on my way to a full recovery; then, I saw the prices!?
Um, when I heard affordable, I was thinking somewhere in the region of maybe nothing over twenty-four bucks but definitely not a freaking relaxed cropped jersey top for $32 freaking dollars. Did I mention I was broke and on top of that our currency conversion is x 3!?
I am almost certain I heard ASOS and Boohoo laughing at me for the near heart-attack I almost suffered and for being disloyal to them(jealous bitches).
I must admit though, when I sifted through all the ‘thotty’, trashy, barely there clothing, with crotch high slits and navel low plunges (that could not,even If I tried, accommodate my mountains even with the use of duct tape), I found a few items that I didn’t mind adding to my cart and wishing upon a star that by some miracle I would be able to afford them.
Will I shop there? I love a challenge, granted I may be over ambitious, I am not opposed to actually shopping there and trying some of their clothing, including their miraculous jeans (when they go on sale of course).
I am a bit discouraged however by the poly/spandex blend that most of their clothing seem to be made of as I am not a fan of spandex. I am sticking to ASOS who has yet to fail me and Boohoo who is more often than not a hit instead of a miss. I will definitely try them out probably in the near future and see what’s up.
Stay tuned for my review, meanwhile, let me know in the comments below your go to spot for all things trendy. Do you like shopping…? I cannot be the only woman who doesn’t like shopping am I right…? What are your thoughts? 🙂
