Welcome back to The "All New" Mod Little Melanin! Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be rolling out the new features of my updated website, including new formats to present blog posts to readers. In my mini hiatus from The Mod Little Melanin, my goal was to redesign the website to gain more readers. My blog has quickly grown over the summer, with the number of page views I recieve per day sky rocketing. Last month I had 5,000 page views, a number I never imagined I would recieve as a blogger. As my blog continues to grow, I will continue to bring more professional content to the blog in order to gain attention from larger clothing stores. I have already been featured on Shop Hope's twitter page, recieved praise from OOTD Channel (a huge IG account for OOTD posts), and have been featured in a few online fashion magazines. I look forward to having all of my readers continue with me on this journey as a fashion blogger!
If you've noticed the style of Kim Kardashian-West or Rihanna lately, you would have noticed that oversized fashion is back. No longer are your favorite celebrities selecting fitted clothing, but are instead opting to wear baggy jeans, oversized tops and a pair of heels. Thanks to the style trends of Kanye's Yeezy clothing, more women are now choosing to wear oversized tops as dresses, etc.
In this look, I am wearing an oversized dress, to create the baggy look. I purchased this dress from Oldnavy in a Size 2X with the plan to style the dress in multiple ways. For this style, I choose to completely button up the dress and add a fringe belt to cinch it in at the waist. Another way to style this dress would be to wear it as outerwear, either over another dress, such as a cream, lace dress or a royal/navy blue dress or over jeans and a tank top.
To accessorize, I added a pair of gold button earrings, as to not over power the dress and a pair of gold, cat eye sunglasses from Forever 21. My shoes are a pair of platform, gold sandals from Target that I have lived in all summer, and probably will continue to rock through Autumn, as I live in a part of the country where the seasons don't always reflect the "typical" seasonal temperature. A red lip was the key to completing this look, but lipstick is always the key to completing the look 😉
