My Dad got back from Florida tonight and he was so sweet and made a trip to the noisy, dark, and smelly Abercrombie & Fitch for me! I received a lovely lace top, plaid pyjama pants, and a flannel shirt. :)
Isäni palasi tänään Floridasta ja oli matkallaan nähnyt vaivaa ja käynyt pimeässä, meluisassa ja hajuisassa Abercrombie & Fitchissä! Ihastelen nyt ihanaa pitsitoppia, pyjamanhousuja, ja flanellipaitaa. :)
Paired this adorable lace top with lace and bead details with a pair of wool shorts by the same company.
lol I accidentally left that plan up on my door closet door - nerdbustedd
These pyjama pants (I always call them 'sleepy pants'! ^^) are made of very soft flannel and are of course (my favorite) plaid!
Paired with a lace top by the same company.
As you can tell I'm not wearing any makeup in this post; rooting for the natural look! ^^
Paired this soft flannel shirt with a pair of comfy shorts for hanging at home :)
And with Ralph Lauren navy pants and a fur for school :)
Or add a cozy sweater!
Something that is really controversial and rather interesting is the A&F, Hollister, and Gilly Hicks brand name. Many say their clothing is overpriced and their styles are repetitive. Often they are accused of portraying very skinny or emaciated models, and only employing 'beautiful people'.
I find that some of those accusations are true; the people they employ are actually working up to model for the company, so I guess that's okay. It does kind of bother me that A&F is such a thing. I find that they sell good quality and well designed clothing that suits my style. Nearly everything I own from them is super easy to match with each other and ends up looking cute and relaxed, but it is important not to get to sucked in to what they are selling you; essentially a 'lifestyle'. The entire concept is a bit too 'branded' for my taste. Have you ever noticed that Hollister sells replicas of most of the more simple A&F styles at lower prices? Some of the items are overpriced; over 90 euros or pounds for a cotton (OR POLYESTER) dress is too much, but I am willing to pay that amount for a well made, wool/cashmere sweater. Often they're clothing is sized very very small and might make people feel uncomfortable to go two or more sizes higher than usual.
That being said, Istill really enjoy their clothing and will continue to shop there in the future :3
What do you think?
P.s. My favorite new thing on instagram is following 'nalacat' - cutest cat ever!
