Trend Report: The Basics Edition

trendreport

You know how much I love to talk about trends. Trust me, anything new that comes out I’m all over it like an umbrella.

But let’s be honest. I’m a college student (read: so broke, it’s not even funny) so I can’t afford to jump on every trend bandwagon out there. Who has the money to replace their wardrobe every season?

Plus, there can be too much of a good thing. Trend + trend + trend+ trend = a wtf outfit. Outfits are like a culinary dish. Trends are the spices on top of your basic potatoes, and a girl cannot subsist off of pepper alone.

So this post is just to celebrate those classic, perfect pieces which, when you think about it, really are the foundations for effortless style.

Maurices.com Jean Review

I was asked to review some jeans from Maurices.com. I had never heard of this company before, so I did some quick research and decided to say yes. Maurices is online, and they have physical stores in different cities around the country. They are a woman’s clothing store that sells plus and straight sizes. Maurices has some really cute items for work and play. So check them out!

 

 

The jeans that I tried were the Briana Dark Wash Jeans and they cost $34. The fabric on the jeans were ok. It wasn’t too thin or too thick. They have a little bit of a flare leg and even though they are supposed to be mid-rise, they seem to be low-rise for me. I think that is because I have a little bit o’ booty in the back. I did like the jeans though. They had a nice wash, and my dad thought they looked nice. Thanks dad! I would probably buy some jeans from this store again. I would love to be able to find a store near me, but that won’t be happening anytime soon because the nearest store is an hour or so away. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. I took them with my phone. 🙂

My pictures didn’t move over when I moved my blog.
