Aerie New Nude Lingerie Collection For A Wide Range Of Skin Tones

Aerie ia becoming one of my favorite brands because of love of body positivity and continuous efforts to help women embrace their true selves.

Via Essence
In 2014, Aerie, which is the lingerie brand from American Eagle, launched a campaign to challenge “supermodel standards” and featured unairbrushed models in their ads. The brand hasn’t retouched its ads ever since.

This week the brand is making another big move — it has launched five nude shades to match a range of skin tones to the Aerie REAL ME Collection. Since nude doesn’t mean just one –or even a few shades — this new range of nudes from Aerie is definitely a win in our opinion. The empowering names of the shade (Honesty, Inspiration, Strength, Energy and Confidence) are an added bonus.

The new nude shades are available in lightly lined bras, briefs and thongs, which are designed with a breathable double knit fabric to provide support and coverage. According to Aerie, each piece is “built to be invisible and give off the ‘barely there’ feel achieving the ultimate comfort for everyday wear.”

GLOW In LaLa Anthony’s New Fashion Line With Lord And Taylor

When it comes to fashion , LaLa Anthony’s style isn’t a to be overlooked! She has been slaying looks all over Instagram and she used to head up her own fashion line called 5th And Mercer.

The Power actress announced that she just launched an exclusive collection with Lord & Taylor.

Appropriately titled “From Day To Play to Slay,” the collection offers denim, jackets and sportswear, and one of the most exciting things is that it’s size-inclusive! The collection ranges from size 0 to 24, and it’s pretty affordable with most pieces priced at under $100.

What You Ordered vs What You Get

Upset women have taken to social media to expose online shopping purchases that weren’t no where near what they expected.

A favorite among bargain-hunters sites like eBay are a go-to for shopaholics om a budget but when it comes to buying clothes, things aren’t always as they appear (neither are these threads).

Sharing photos of the items they ordered side-by-side with what actually arrived, the disappointed customers are open highlight the gap between expectation and reality when it comes to virtual style.

Often, guipure lace is replaced with tacky netting, embroidery is swapped for stick-on gems and, in some cases dresses turn up three times smaller than advertised.

Whether it doesn’t fit right, the material isn’t what you expected or it’s simply hideous, these thrifty women are keen to teach you a lesson that they learned the hard way. Be careful if the price is unbelieveable for that particular dress just spend the extra coins and get it here in the states. Watch out for reviews , no reviews with actually pictures…no purchase is my rule!

The It BAG of the Season

                   
Heyyy GLOWERS TGIF! Hope yalll having a great week. If I were to guess, I have a feeling all yall have heard about the bag that has been taking over social media and fashion blogs by storm; its none other than the Ark handbag. Last summer, this bag began making its way into the hands of some of the most stylish fashionistas out. Do we blame them its HANDS Down the hottest thang out

What is the Ark Handbag?

This bohemian meets modern west coast bag came out last year, which is a unique take on a clutch, in its half circle shape. In fact, the silhouette is actually the same as a classic Japanese picnic bag. Pretty dope or nah?

These bags are selling out fast,I wait to cop one. After doing research i found out Amazon and Marshalls has them for the low and great quality… I heard Ebay has the worst ones on the market.
