WEEKLY OUTFIT ROUNDUP (02/06/2017-02/12/2017)

collage_fotor

Although I was home applying to jobs most of the week, I still forced myself into a few outings to keep myself out of the laziness that comes from having to lie around at home the majority of the time. Luckily, I had an early Galentine’s Day celebration and a trip to the zoo to give me a reason for enjoying getting dressed.

Hope you enjoy this week’s looks!

Best,

Miss Lark Bahar

 

Friday’s Look

My best friend, lil sis, and I all celebrated Galentine’s Day together, so the outfit was naturally composed of hearts, reds, and pinks. I went with a casual look for my review of these FABULOUS jeans from Lady K Loves (which you can read here).

Saturday’s Look

Yesterday’s look featured a rare combination, a summer top paired with a winter skirt. Since it’s generally either too hot or too cold here, I can rarely combine outfits, but since we decided to do some window shopping at a local downtown event, and the weather forecast featured the rare cloudy sky, I opted for a combo outfit to cover my bases. I was actually quite pleased with the color combination!

Spotlight Saturday: Lady K Loves Says Hug Me Baby

fullsizeoutput_5694

If you’ve been following my blog a decent amount of time, you’ll know that I’ve reviewed a whole slew of items in the past from the wonderful brand Lady K Loves (you can find the posts here and here), but this is the first time I’m venturing into the territory that Lady K Loves is famous for: jeans!

With my 24″-38″ waist and hip measurements, I’m definitely a gal who needs a jean cut for curves, and Lady K Loves’ Hug Me Baby style is specifically designed for dames with a 12+ difference between waist and hip. Jeans are something that I’d completely given up since committing to being all vintage all the time (with the exception of a pair of Vivien of Holloway capris), but my eye has been on the Hug Me Baby style as long as I’ve known the brand. So few brands cater to larger legs and hips, even in the repro world! And finding vintage that fits is certainly almost as difficult. Seeing gals like Diablo Rose rocking the Hug Me Babys gave me hope that perhaps…just perhaps, a jean that would fit my curves was out there.

#preach #hellyes #shutthefudgeup #respect @diablorose – 🚫 NO CATCALLING ZONE 🚫 Dear random ass guy stood outside the penny arcade at 10.45am on a Thursday spitting on the ground. You were on the phone and as I walked past you, you said "man… that's a fat ass" I don't know if you meant that as a compliment or insult but you have ZERO right to comment on my body, I have ZERO interest in whether you like it or not, and now I'm getting to point of ZERO tolerance for this catcalling bullshit. I get commented on all the time in the street and it is not okay, my body is not here for anyone else, it is not up for public discussion by idiotic guys in the street. So guys, just stop it! Urgh! Are you with me ladies?!! . . . PS Catcalls have no affect on my own body positivity, I actually love my figure! Especially in these jeans!! . #nocatcalling #nocatcallingzone #catcalling #mybody #mybodymyrules #beatitcreep . #Regrann

A post shared by Vintage Style | EcoFashion (@ladykloves) on

Knowing I would be receiving a pair of the Hug Me Babys to review, I was admittedly a bit nervous. While the playsuit I first reviewed fit PERFECTLY in the legs and hips, the May trousers that I reviewed were larger in the waist, so I was hoping that the measurements listed online were accurate. When they arrived in their package, I did the usual “hold up to guess whether it’ll fit” test, and quickly knew it would. I’ve gotten pretty good at judging waist sizes that’ll fit me with a glance, and the legs were obviously sizable enough to fit my 23″ thighs, so I felt immediate relief. When I actually tried them on, I had trouble getting them over my hips (as all clothes that fit my waist AND hips generally won’t fit over my hips easily). Luckily, the material of these pants is EXTREMELY sturdy. No lightweight denim here! So, I wasn’t in the least worried that anything would rip. They were certainly long on me, but these jeans are made to be cuffed (and also come in two lengths, 32″ and 36″), and otherwise, the fit was as if they were made for me!

I ended up taking photos in one of our (almost green) parks after going out to acquire donuts for an early Galentine’s Day with the bestie and my lil sis. Naturally, I went for pinks and reds in celebration.

The first batch of photos show me sitting in the jeans. Since they’re very high-waisted (in other words, fit for one’s natural waist instead of the high-rise pants modern clothing designers claim to be “high-waisted”), they do squeeze the waist when sitting…but I don’t see this as a problem. Everybody’s got skin, it’s just a side effect of high-quality, high-waisted jeans! So worth it. And most importantly, my legs NEVER felt squeezed, no matter what position I sat in.

fullsizeoutput_5693fullsizeoutput_5697fullsizeoutput_56a1

The next batch, featuring my sister wandering around in the back, is a front view where you can see how long the rise is and exactly how much I had to cuff proportionally. I will note that I only rolled the pants up once instead of creating a prettier cuff, but there’s certainly enough material there to cut some off if desired. The cut of the leg is quite obviously perfect as it fits my proportions as if tailored for me, and they taper in at the end just enough to feel flattering AND vintage. As someone who lived in skinny jeans for many years, it was admittedly a bit odd at first, wearing denim that didn’t squeeze my ankles to death, but by the time I’d stepped out of the house, I’d acclimated to the aesthetic.

fullsizeoutput_56a6fullsizeoutput_56a8

And the final angle, undeniably my favorite angle, is the back view. Not to toot my own horn, but…..DAMN they look good from the back! I can honestly say that I’ve never liked the way jeans have looked from the back on me. Ever. The Hug Me Babys are a true miracle jean!

fullsizeoutput_56a3fullsizeoutput_56a5img_3304

Am I right, or am I right? Now I just need a pair of saddle shoes to pair with these babies!

As Lady K Loves’ jeans are so popular, most sizes are sold out in all three of their styles, the Hug Me Baby, the Classic, and the Le Wild  (all designed for different body types so there’s something for everyone); however, they’re currently holding a fundraiser over on Kickstarter to bring their jeans back!

Already halfway past the goal they’re seeking to hit in April, they have a variety of pledge options available, with a nice range of prize packages (many of which include a preorder for the actual jeans). The largest prize package includes all of these items (and is available for the Hug Me Baby and Le Wilde styles):

c155e4f06d48ee8d0ad081cfba81a618_original

If enough is raised, Lady K Loves plans on returning the Classic as well as introducing a new style called the Polly – designed exclusively for petite gals! As a company that so obviously works to cater to all body types (and is always actively working to expand their styles), AND is focused on ethical production, it’s a great company to support.

Lady K Loves Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

Hello friends!

If you’ve been a follower of my blog for awhile, you’ve no doubt seen my post reviewing (and gushing) over some gorgeous items from Lady K Loves. As still some of my favorite items (can’t wait for spring time when I can bring out the playsuit again!), I jumped at the chance to review items from the wonderful new collection, and to spread the love by bringing YOU all a giveaway of your own!

I first started to hear word of Lady K Loves when pinup after pinup started posting themselves donning the marvelous jeans featured on the site, so was so happy to see that the new collection featured more trousers as well as a wide array of new tops perfect for the fall and holiday seasons.

My own little package of items to review included the May Trousers in Grey Abstract, the Becki Top in Mustard, and the Jess Top in Mustard. As someone who doesn’t have any mustard in her wardrobe (or come to think of it, any pants!), I was happy to expand my collection with these new items, and bring you all a review.

While the Becki and the Jess come in the exact shade of mustard and the same type of material, their cuts make them incredibly different tops. The Becki, with its bat wings and black trim, is friendlier for a colder climate due to the heaviness of a trim that stops the cold from seeping in. The neck is very tight, but only noticeably so when trying to get it on (my advice: just be sure to put it on BEFORE you style your hair and put your lipstick on, and you’re good to go). The arms and waist are comfortably loose, and there was plenty of room to accommodate my 36″ bust through the chest area.

The Jess, on the other hand, is so lightweight overall that it could be worn throughout the seasons with various levels of layering. While I avoid sleeves in the summer time here, this material seems thin enough to make it wearable even in 120º weather. Just as with the Becki, the arms and waist of this are comfortably loose, and while I generally prefer a really tight waist, the casual appearance of this top particularly lends itself to the relaxed fit, and it’s nice having an option that’s not holding me in at my smallest all day long.

While the lightweight nature of the mustard material is a HUGE bonus for someone who lives in my climate, I did notice that these tops both show absolutely everything. This became a problem in the sense that I can’t really wear most of my vintage or repro bullet bras because the stitching shows through the top. A simple modern bra solves the problem, however, and I’m now on the lookout for a bullet bra with hidden seaming. After all, these are both great cuts to get that marvelously casual “sweater girl” look that I’m so fond of.

fullsizeoutput_553c

The May pants, my first pair of trousers in over a year since I sold my last pair, have been a relieving addition to my wardrobe in so many ways. First, because it’s nice being able to throw on an outfit without shaving, second, because these are as comfortable as leggings, and third, because they’re a marvelous neutral with just enough detail to make them an interesting piece. I was a bit worried about sizing as I clock in at 24″ in the waist, 38″ in the hip, and about 23″ around for each leg. The sizing on the site lists the XS as measuring 25,” 35,” but having experience with Lady K Loves’ AMAZING Emma Playsuit that fit me like a glove and had the same sizing suggestion, I was pleased when I was told that there’s plenty of stretch in the trousers. Upon receiving my package, my first move was to try to test how stretchy these trousers are, and from rest, they could stretch several additional inches. Because of this, they could without a doubt fit a wide range of sizes easily. The waist clocked in large for me, particularly with the stretch, and would probably be a better fit for a waist size of 26″-27″ inches. I had to pin it so it fit me properly, so if possible, I would personally size down if you’re worried about the waist being too large. These have enough stretch that it wouldn’t be a risky move. Once pinned, however, they had the comfiest fit and I could sit in all myriad of positions without worrying about cutting off circulation, and they retained their shape, keeping enough looseness for that vintage feel, while remaining form-fitting.

By the time I could shoot photos for you guys, these pants were on their fourth wear! And as you can see, they’re in perfect condition. Here I am pairing them with the Becki top:

A Day in Lady K Loves

Although I’m a huge fan of brands like Pinup Girl Clothing and Tatyana, there will always be a special place in my heart for vintage reproduction companies that feature styles and silhouettes that lean towards a more era-accurate fit instead of the pin up styles that have become so popular nowadays. This is why brands like Vivien of Holloway and Freddies of Pinewood have always appealed to me. Although I have no problems with showing off a little cleavage and featuring loud patterns and colors, there’s something so beautiful about the curvy cut of a pair of 1950s styled peddle pushers and other casual wear that seems to be less popular in the current pin up scene. I immediately feel more authentically ’50s or ’60s when I can don a high-necked cashmere sweater and a pair of high-waisted jeans than I do when I throw on a low-cut dress with a big gathered skirt, and for me, this is a good thing.

When Lady K Loves contacted me suggesting a collaboration, I was over-the-moon jumping-out-of-my-seat excited. Their range of clothes fit perfectly into what I deem to be casual 40s-60s reproduction clothing (with an additional range of more modern skin tight, true high-waisted jeans sewn specifically for curvy gals). While choosing my wishlist was tough, I ended up with such a great range of items that I knew I had to spend a day showing them all off!

These are the four items I ended up with:

This past Saturday, as I had a full day with no solid plans, I decided to snatch up the opportunity and finally have my “Lady K Loves Day” with the help of my roomie photographer.

IMG_9873IMG_9883IMG_9905IMG_9870

The Lydia Patio Top and Darling Skirt in Turquoise are a lightweight wardrobe option perfect for lounging about during the only endurable time of day in the desert heat. I wore it for my morning coffee with Louisa May Alcott at my side. As everything but the waist of the skirt fits loosely given the styling of the two pieces (and even then, the 25″ waist fits my 24″-25″ measurement more perfectly than any other repro company I’ve encountered), it was perfectly comfortable curling up in one of our patio chairs with my book.

The flare of the sleeves is helpful with cutting back the heat as the large armholes aid the breathe-ability of the top, and the shirt, when untucked, is cut with tails in a way that the wearer can tie the waist if desired without it being too short when tucked in. My one qualm with these two pieces is that the ric-rac design on the blouse is incredibly scratchy as there’s no barrier between the skin and the coarse, metallic stitching. Fortunately, as the top isn’t tight fitting, this isn’t as much of a problem as it could be for someone with sensitive skin like me.

After starting the morning with some coffee and a good read, we decided to go spend some time by the pool, enjoying the slight drop in heat due to the overcast skies (yay monsoon season!). Since I try to avoid wearing my expensive vintage bathing suit, I decided to don my Emma Playsuit for some more relaxation time by the pool with drink in hand.

IMG_0065IMG_0063IMG_0119IMG_0112IMG_0107

This was the number that Lady K Loves originally asked me to feature and I admit I was hesitant. Given my long torso, large legs and hips, and small waist, proportionally, I usually can’t comfortably wear a one-piece unless it’s a custom number. To my complete and utter shock, it fit me more perfectly than ANY playsuit, swimsuit, or even short set I own. As I feel the fit is incredibly important for a number like this, I figured I would provide my measurements. I clock in at 36″-24/25″-38″ and my legs are about 23″ around. I unfortunately don’t have my torso measurement, but as you can see from the photos, the XS fits me, a 5’5″gal with short legs and a long torso with the above measurements, seamlessly.

The torso is the perfect length as it doesn’t result in the dreaded camel-toe or sag at the crotch, and the length and diameter of the legs are cut so that when standing, they follow my curves effortlessly without digging in uncomfortably when sitting. I do have to wear a strapless bra with this number as there’s no support sewn in in the bust, but I don’t really mind. Gives me room to throw in a bullet or cone bra!

My only qualm with this number is that they don’t have more prints available! I need MOAR. I know summer’s ending but……………………..gosh darnit, it’s perfect!

But anyway…after lounging around and being lazy for most of the day, we decided to head out and use one of our Groupons for a wine night. Since the Splendid Top has the longer sleeves with the classic wrap-top cut, I figured it would be a great staple that could be dressed up or down given the situation. I ended up opting for a simple, but elegant look for going out, and my roomie snapped a few images of me in the process of getting ready.

IMG_0247IMG_0244IMG_0209IMG_0225IMG_0199IMG_0242

I would say that this is undoubtedly the most elegant top I own. As it’s a wrap top, it opens up completely, and so sizing wasn’t something I was worried about in the least. The fabric is, again, completely breathable and lightweight – perfect for a desert dweller – and the sleeves are cut to be loose and comfortable. I’ve always adored wrap tops since they let me cinch my waist in as few tops are small enough to do, and this top does not disappoint. On occasion, I become worried that I might be pulling a wrap top too tight, but the fabric of Lady K Loves’ version feels sturdy enough to handle pulling me in about an inch or two extra.

IMG_0243

The most interesting trait of this top is the collar, which can be worn up or flattened out seamlessly. The photos from Saturday night show the collar flattened, but in my Instagram image below, you can see what it looks like when “popped.” I love the styling both ways, and figure being able to pop the collar will help keep my neck warm in colder weather.

I opted for pairing this top with various shades of soft pink and my brooch with the two dancers as it reminds me so much of the shrugs I used to don as a ballerina; what better way to pay homage to a time in my life I still dearly regret letting go?

All in all, Lady K Loves has a range of items that can fulfill any wardrobe desire from 1950s casual looks, to 1950s party looks. I’m so glad to feature Lady K Loves on my blog and am so relieved that I can finally start wearing these items! The wrap top and the playsuit are perfect for planning fall-themed looks around and I can’t wait. All of these items have added to my wardrobe so much while giving me comfortable wardrobe staples.

I’m personally DYING to add this set to my closet, and now consider Lady K Loves my staple reproduction brand despite being international.

If you’re a curvy gal like me and looking for a brand that will hug your shape beautifully, then look no further! This is a rare brand indeed. If you have a straighter figure, then I have no doubt that these items would look just as perfect on you – just take a look at their Instagram to show all the gorgeous gals modeling the clothes. Although their size range doesn’t extend into plus-size, hopefully this is a step they can take as their business grows.

This Tuesday’s Look

Having received a whole bundle of items from the wonderful shop Lady K Loves the past week (review to come), I knew I had to try to avoid wearing and showing off the items until my blog post, but just couldn’t resist at least wearing the staple piece that came in the lot! So I planned this outfit around the beautiful black wrap top.

This Thursday’s Look

This was the last little hurrah for this dress of mine as it’s simply too short and the bust too small. It’s currently on its way to a new home, but not before I got to pair it with one of my new hats gifted to me so kindly by my great aunt for a cute, Southern Belle kinda feel!
