Earlier this month the Swedish plus size brand, Ellos invited a few influencers to embrace the Swedish concept of Lagom, meaning, “just the right amount.” This concept is the complete opposite of what Americans typically embrace due to our intense consumer culture which is the idea of “more is better,” so I found the concept of Lagom fascinating as it simplicity, affordability and quality above all else in every part of everyday life including fashion.
Last week I shared with you my very first Christmas shopping guide that dealt with shopping for anime/manga fangirl and now this second list focuses more on Western fandoms, particularly animation, video games and comics, though I did include a couple live action films . Much like my first gift guide, some of the items listed are direct references to certain fandoms, with the rest being pieces that are much more subtle. I’ve also included some commentary as how they can be used or styled for everyday use. In an effort to remain budget friendly I made sure to list items that are $60 and under, minus shipping though many retailers seem to now be offering free shipping due to holiday rush so that cost shouldn’t be as bad as it usually is. Happy shopping!
