Roommate Remix: Playing Model

Blouse: c/o Fii Girl   Skirt, Bag, & Belt: thrifted   Boots: c/o My Hot Shoes
So when I got a new blouse from Fii Girl, I was excited to try it out - however, despite my ordering it extra large, it didn't fit quite right. What's a girl to do? I called up my friend Kirsten and asked if she'd play model for me. So all of these pieces are actually from my closet, she's just showing it off for me.

As a reference then, know that if you order from Fii Girl, you better have small shoulders! It's always a disappointment and a bit of a self esteem hit when this happens, but I've found this is often the case with clothing from Korean companies for a thicker set girl like myself. I've learned to accept my athletic build, but it can sometimes frustrate my fashionable side in trying to find clothing that suits my shape but also matches the style I'd like to wear. Reality sucks. Its a constant battle trying to make these two coincide, like fighting magnets of opposite sides to stick together - but I'm trying.

This is a hopeful Roommate Remix post, because it's possible Kirsten may move in with us at the start of next year. That would be so wonderful! Corina and I have a bunkbed, so we only use one room in our two-bedroom place. It'd be practical to have one more girl to share the place with, and if it's Kirsten, all the better! We've all hung out before and get along so well - plus, we have similiar lifestyle habits, which I've found is vital to successfully living with others.

Anyway, next post I'll show you the look I wore alongside Kirsten on this day - here's a clue, I was wearing my favorite new trend, leather. ;)

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

How exciting! I hope everything works out for you guys!
I'm sorry your new blouse didn't fit right, that's always disappointing. Kristin is a wonderful model, though! I love the outfit you put together!

She looks super cute!
Love the color of the bag and the leopard!
Great blouse and boots.
I do agree though,I always have to go 1-2 sizes up when ordering from some stores, so the clothes fit ok in shoulders.

Great look)

Kirsten looks great, but it's a shame the top didn't fit. I hate buying clothes and finding they don't fit (its my chest) or that they look less than desired (again my chest) :(

Yup, even when I sized up to a medium, it was still too short! So I know that feel, girl. I'm glad that your roommate was able ot make use of it though--it's such a cute shirt, and I'm sorry it didn't fit you right! I love how you styled it though, especially with that cute leopard belt.

Similar lifestyle habits definitely makes living with roommates easier... I was lucky to have some good girls to room with this year! I'm glad you're figuring out the same.

Have a sweet day, Linda! <3

It always makes me feel horrid when I get a piece of clothing but it doesn't fit right despite it being in my size -- does a number on your self esteem. But I'm glad you have amazing self-confidence and love your body! Cause you're beautiful <3

also, tell your friend she is adorable, she wore the top brilliantly, and she's a natural model. :P

love,
a

Pretty outfit, you can never go wrong with black and white. It's so true, Korean companies make the clothes really small and soooooo short! I guess all their models must be really tiny, hahaha
Love, Amy

it sucks the blouse doesn't fits you, that's the downside of corean clothing, very small sizes :\
but your friend looks really cute in that outfit!

This is adorable! And if you can't already tell from my own posts, I always adhere to the simple/classic formula, because that never goes out of style. Love that little pop of leopard via her belt and those cool boots! xx

Shop Style Conquer said...

Aw, that's so dissapointing when that happens! I often have the same problem with asian based stores, they are just making things for a different build to us! Luckily I can give mine ususally to Ellen (and youve got Kirsten), its kinda annoying when they try it and it fits and looks great haha!

She looks adorable! Great styling, Linda :) I feel your pain about ordering from Asian sites - even when I check the sizing info and compare to my measurements, things still seem to squeeze and pinch once I receive them. Let's just chalk it up to the fact that Asian sizing is crazy tiny unless you are Asian sized :)
