Wardrobe Wednesdays: Jenna Dewan in Los Angeles

Jenna Dewan demin dress in LA

I’m going to try really hard to not think about the fact that Jenna Dewan isn’t wearing her ring anymore, in lieu of her and Channing Tatum’s heartbreaking separation 😥

The actress was spotted this week in Los Angeles wearing a simple denim midi dress paired with strappy black heels. The sleeveless dress would have looked super casual had it not been combined with those cute heels, in my opinion.

It’s been so long since I’ve owned a denim dress, and now I want one. If the weather in NYC would just hurry up and actually turn more spring-like, maybe I’ll get myself a denim dress to wear this season.

See below for the original dress (marked with *) and some other items inspired by Jenna’s look.

Dress:

1. Stories, $115.00 *

2. Dillard’s, $79.00

Shoes:

3. DSW, $59.99

4. Charlotte Russe, $25.00

#TWBT: Let’s Talk About boohoo’s Zendaya Edit

zendaya edit boohoo

Welcome to the first installment of #TWBT (The Whisper Box Talk) where I discuss happenings in the world of pop culture and entertainment!

As most boohoo shoppers probably did, I got a promotional email from the UK brand about The Zendaya Edit a few days ago. Some of you may already know this, but if you don’t I’ll make it explicitly known right now that I LOVE Zendaya Coleman’s style. It’s so eclectic and sometimes risky, which makes it so much fun to keep up with.

Needless to say, I clicked through to the edit immediately. I didn’t expect to be disappointed, and I definitely wasn’t.

While scrolling through the edit, I noticed many of the color schemes where quite subtle, with lots of white and yellow. There are some bold pieces in the edit with vibrant blues and colorful stripes, but for the most part, Zendaya seems to be going for a calm spring vibe with these pieces.

One of the most interesting ensembles from the photoshoot Zendaya did for this edit is the stripe satin ruffle maxi dress in red and white. She pairs the sweet dress with a pair of robust sneakers, which just goes to show how much of a risk taker the actress is with her fashion choices. She does the same with a pastel blue maxi dress of similar style.

I think my favorite piece from the edit by far is the striped maxi duster coat, not only because I’d totally splurge to buy it, but because I think it truly embodies Zendaya’s fierce and unapologetic style.

Even Paris Hilton is rocking it!

I also wouldn’t mind getting cozy in this pink sweater or going sporty chic in this blue bodycon dress with orange and yellow stripes.

So far, the edit has received complaints for not having plus sizes. It appears the plus sizes sold out first and will be restocked, according to boohoo. Regardless, I don’t think Zendaya should have to choose clothing for an edit that she can’t personally model herself, as she isn’t plus sized.

Maybe boohoo will get a plus sized actress or musician for their summer edit?

FashionMia Review

fashionmia review
*This post is sponsored by FashionMia. I received these items complimentary for review.

I’ve worked with a handful of brands through this blog over the last three years and never would I have imagined the ridiculousness that ensued while working with FashionMia.

FashionMia reached out to me in November 2017 about reviewing their clothing on my blog.

I was given a $50 credit to pick out a few items I liked from the site for this review. I ended up choosing four items.

I didn’t receive anything from the company until the beginning of January. It was the holiday season, so I wasn’t too peeved about it taking so long to arrive from China to New York.

But then I realized one of the four items—a burgundy blazer—wasn’t in the package I received. I contacted FashionMia to see what was up, and they said the notification system didn’t send me an email saying the item was out of stock, which would explain why it didn’t ship.

FashionMia decided to let me choose another item in place of the blazer, so I opted for a green dress. I asked if I could wait until the green dress arrived to write and film the YouTube video for my clothing review. They said yes, and assured me the dress would ship immediately. At the end of January, I got another email asking if I could post my review without having received my complete order. I was also told the green dress is out of stock.

Absolute insanity.

Needless to say, I don’t think I’ll be ordering from FashionMia ever again.

Here’s a written review of the items I did receive:

Blouse: I love the light fabric and bird print on this blouse. It’s a super easy piece to match with a pair of jeans, and it’s very colorful without being too over-the-top.

Clutch Bag: I’m well aware that I shouldn’t overload this clutch bag with too many things because it might break, so I’m fine with the light material of this bag. I probably won’t use the strap much. Overall, this clutch is perfect for those who don’t need to carry too much around while on a night out. I do wish that the strap clasps weren’t so tedious to remove.

Dress: I’m not happy with the way this dress fits. The mock neck has stretched out a bit after trying on the dress twice. The chest area has an awkward fold that isn’t flattering.

Ella Lopez, Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish” fashionAs if this weeks episode of FOX’s Lucifer, “Vegas With Some Radish,” wasn’t amazing enough, LAPD forensic scientist Ella Lopez wore the most incredible outfit during the casino scenes!

This outfit plus all the craziness in this episode are making “Vegas With Some Radish” one of my favorite Lucifer episodes to date.

Ella came down the escalator at the casino to meet Lucifer wearing a black and gold strapless dress that basically screams VEGAS. She paired the look with a cute gold clutch and wore her hair swept to the side.

This was a very exciting change of scene, I must say!
