Meet Mariadna. She’ll be 23 next month and there’s almost nothing she loves more than fashion. She loves thrifting and yard sales and things like that, you never know what treasures you may find! Mariadna currently works at a small home day case, but hopes to one day own her very own online boutique.
1. What do you love most about 99dresses?
My favorite thing about 99dresses is how the 99dresses girls are always on top of it when it comes to answering questions or resolving problems that arise amongst members! The customer service is amazingly fast and helpful, unlike other apps I’ve used in the past.
2. Favorite item won on the app so far?
My most favorite item I’ve won on the app so far is my J Brand jean jacket. It was my first win and I was ecstatic when I received it! It was basically brand new and it was such steal! I wear it all of the time.
3. When you aren’t shopping, you can be found…
Drinking tea and binge watching shows on Netflix!
4. If your friends could describe you in one word, what would it be?
5. What’s currently on your shopping wish list?
I’m dying to buy some cutout moto boots right now. Every time I see some I like, my size is out of stock and they’ve been on my wish list for the longest time.
6. If you could hang out with any celebrity for the day, who would it be and why?
It would definitely be Jennifer Lawrence! I think she seems super genuine and funny. Plus, she loves food! J.Law is such a girl’s girl.
7. Favorite song of the moment?
It’s so difficult to pick just one, but I’m currently obsessed with HAIM’s “Don’t Save Me” and “Falling.” Their whole album “Days Are Gone” is amazing!
8. Any trends you are loving right now?
I’m totally loving the 90’s grunge trend. Dark lips and floral and flannel? You don’t have to ask me twice!
9. On a typical weekend, you can be spotted wearing…
A jean jacket, no matter what! Texas weather is pretty unpredictable, so I might be in a light sundress and sandals but when it gets chilly midday, my J Brand jean jacket comes to save the day!
We’re finally starting to get a taste of warmer weather here in New York City, which means that it is almost time to start trading our all black, every day wardrobe for one that is much brighter, girlier and fun! So what items are on our wishlist this fall? Here are a few things that our members are currently coveting.
1. ModCloth heels 2. ModCloth dress 3. Urban Decay palette 4. ASOS mules 5. Chicwish skirt 6. Mossimo blazer 7. Burberry rain boots 8. Rag + Bone jeans 9. Henri Bendel backpack
So, let’s hear it! What’s on YOUR spring wishlist?
I donʼt know how many of you are “Portlandia” fans, but I certainly am. After mindlessly zoning out on multiple episodes back-to-back over Spring Break, some catch-phrases stuck in my head indeﬁnitely, inﬁltrating all aspects of my life. One of those lines was, “We can pickle that!” and “Put a bird on it!”
As I was drearily hauling myself out of bed last Tuesday morning, already running late for my class, I decided to wear my pajamas to school. Since my pajamas consist of a worn-in, oversized Frank & Oak t-shirt and nothing else, obviously I had to add a few things. My shaky foundation of a t-shirt and day old mascara was quickly pulled together by a pair of black jeggings, my trusted black booties, and a black tuxedo-inspired blazer.
I power walked to class practically giggling to myself. I hadnʼt even brushed my hair! Yet I was getting so many compliments on my outﬁt and high ponytail. I ﬁnally decided that it was the blazer, the magic black blazer. If I took this baby off, my entire outﬁt would crumble. Therefore, I concluded that it is decidedly easy to make any outﬁt look pulled together when you throw a blazer into the mix. Or, more simply stated, put a blazer on it!
Here is the outﬁt I somehow created from my pajamas and a few shiny things. I Instagrammed it (obviously), adding the #putablazeronit hashtag (inspired by Portlandia, obviously). The black tuxedo style blazer I am wearing is by BB Dakota.
Here are some awesome blazers to inspire you. I would recommend having at least three blazers in your wardrobe at all times: one in classic black, one in a solid, bright color, and one ﬂoral. They are so versatile, transitioning from each season and varied event with ease.
Over time, you can add sequined, patterned, and velvet blazers to you closet. Personally, I am still on the hunt for the perfect camel-colored one! But for now, how will you style your favorite blazer this week? Throw it over your pajamas; throw it over a dress; throw it over anything. See what happens! Instagram it and hashtag #putablazeronit!
