5 Items to Try While in Quarantine

I hope that everyone reading this post is safe and doing  well in spite of the current pandemic. I know that many of us have been coping with the stress and anxiety of this uncertain time by keeping ourselves occupied as best as possible, like baking bread and binge-watching some of our favorite feel-good shows or movies. As for me, I’ve taken the time to play some video games, read and try some new products, among other things. From fashion to skincare, I believe this is the time to try things we wouldn’t normally if we were still heading into the work. So today I’m sharing just  5 things I’ve tried recently that I found to be pretty great and highly recommend. Treat yourself if you can, and  if you are unable to do so at this moment, do like I have been doing lately –  save the links and treat yourself once you’re able. Happy shopping!

1.) Stars Above Perfectly Cozy Lounge Jumpsuit

For the most part, I don’t own  actual “lounge wear.” I tend to just wear pajamas whenever I’m home or house clothes, which mostly consist of nerdy/band tees, basic cotton short and of course, sweat pants. Yet once we passed the two week mark in the quarantine, I decided to finally purchase my first lounge jumpsuit. It is so soft and comfortable that it has become my go to when I’m getting dressed in the morning. (Its a good thing my apartment building has a laundry mat on the basement so I can keep this jumpsuit in constant rotation.)

In this one piece you have great balance of style and comfort that even works great for casual wear outside with the right pair of sneakers and even a denim jacket.  I’m already planning on purchasing the one in light grey as well because I could use it as cozy travel outfit . As for sizing, I got this in a size XL and it fit my size 16/18 frame just fine. I believe that the XXL would fit up to a size 22 because of how roomy it is. The best part is that it is you can get it from Target here for less than $30!

About Moths and Roses (Let’s Talk About Age and Style)

I’m 29, turning 30 in May. Honestly, I’ve only just gotten used to being “so young with so much responsibility” and the idea that I am getting to the age in which most people have themselves more established is horrifying considering the fact that I’m still so far away from where I expected to be at this point. Added to that, I can’t help but notice that my style doesn’t exactly read as “responsible adult” or “age appropriate” at all times.  I mean, what is a 30 year old even supposed to look like?

SHEIN Mini-Haul & Review

This year marks the 5th year anniversary of the blog and in celebration of this milestone I’m incorporating some new kinds of content like this review/haul video as this is the kind of content that has been asked of me to create since I first launched the blog back in 2015. So to start this new series, I did some shopping at SHEIN. It honestly was seeing so many of my co-workers in outfits from there that made me want to give this brand a try. It is much cheaper than most retailers especially when it comes to plus size offerings.   Check out what I got in my latest video below. Continue reading

V-Extra for V-day

It may be because I’ve been re-reading old chapters of Lore Olympus on Webtoon, but when it came to thinking about Valentine’s day this year the only thing that would come to mind is Persephone. For those of your who may be able unfamiliar with Classical Mythology, Persephone is known to be a Goddess of adaptation being that she is both the Goddess of Spring and, due to her marriage to Hades, Queen of the Underworld. So with her contradictory nature and role, we have the light and feminine along with the dark and edgy, all in one.For me this train of thought wasn’t about recreating a look from the aforementioned webcomic (though I really want to for Comic Con one day), but rather give myself a chance to be “extra” just for the hell of it which doesn’t happen too often.

She’s All Hat

When it comes to listing basics that everyone should have in their closet, I feel like hats get thrown to the wayside. Which is kind of sad considering how it’s a versatile accessory that not only can keep your head warm on those cold days, but also makes a statement in a subtle way. And yes, I find it funny how I’m saying this considering the fact that I was not much of a hat person to begin with. Of course this changed once I got my halo fedora and my wide brim floppy sun hat, both of which I primarily wear for fashion not for function.

So as you can expect I was super excited to get this new hat from Tenth Street Hats for review. Sure this new wool crown hat is my fourth black hat in my growing collection, yet there is nothing wrong with having more than one nice  stylish hat, especially one like this that doesn’t block people’s view should anyone be sitting behind me.
