Make it stop!  The mesh dress.
by Prestige Artist Abs Petit.

It’s Saturday night, and like any 20 something that chooses to stay inside because your kidneys and pockets are at a disagreement, I am Instabrowsing. (The act of spending what might be hours on instagram looking for the 3 B’s. “Blogs, brands and Bae.”) And you can’t have a complete insta-sesh without running into a few of the boutiques.

 An influx of names with cliche terms such as “Couture” or “House of” this and “High end” that. We get it. You’re a fashion boutique. And you can’t be a fully operating social media retailer without having that one item in stock; the mesh dress.


You know what I’m talkin’ about. The one you’ve seen on every #BirthdayBehavior pic, video vixen and instagram model. It comes in a wide array of colors with just enough fabric and beaded applique to cover your vag, nips and crack. I motion this trend be put to rest or rather the shelves, at least for a few decades. Then make its rounds 20 years from now, like the surprising return of 90′s inspired strap sandals at ZARA.


The style has developed a tacky stigma. Not much thought goes into putting an outfit together that consist of a dress with opaque fabric on the wrists, buttocks, breasts and vaginal region. It was creative and bold when it was introduced, but now vaguely lazy and redundant. I’m all for the quick, go-to dress for those last minute rendezvous at club Story, but we’re in need of another microwavable option for cocktail this year. Next!

So what are your thoughts about this fashion trend?
Do you still love it? Or do you agree with Abs and you desperately want it to stop!

Knotted Shirts: The Easiest Styling Trick To Slim Your Silhouette.
By Prestige Artist Raul A.
Edited by Sophia Lenore


One of the most difficult parts of the body to hide or conceal is the waistline. There is so much pressure to look slim and thin; the appearance of the waistline can really make or break your silhouette. If your a woman that likes, or admires clothing that provides a good-fit and shows off your silhouette, but your feeling a bit body conscience and need some tricks to look slimmer this post is for you!


As a professional wardrobe stylist, it is my job to trick the eye to make an outfit look great. One of my favorite slim-down tricks to hid a not-so-slim waistline is to wear big shirts knotted at the waistline.

While I was in Tokyo on a styling job, I was fascinated by how the locals mastered this trick. While observing the locals in Tokyo I learned so many new ways to wear knotted shirts to cover a curvier waist. Check out the photos below to see how to rock this trend correctly and look slimmer in the process.

So, do you like this trend?
