DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated with any gang....except my own GANG GANG (my main Bishes). I say this because it was recently brought to my attention that a money bandanna belongs to the Bloods; can't believe after the million years of being a New Yorker (born and raised), I never, I neva kneeeeewwwww *Tony Baker voice*. Now, I could've gotten faulty Intel, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, in the comments below.
With that said, can we PAAAAAALEEEEAAASSSSEEEE discuss the absolute boss shit that is going on in this here outfit.
I first saw this jumpsuit on Boohoo.com, last year I wanna say, and I nearly had an outer body experience. Yes, yes I am dramatic. I forget the name of the boss babe who came out with this brand collaboration (as you should know by now, fail is life), but I thought it was BRILLIANT!
When it came in the mail and I tried it on, I had no idea it would be soooooooooo thin and so super stretch-tastic. Unfortunately this piece is no longer available (I linked some rad dollar dollar bill stuffs down bellow), and if it were, my advice would've been to size down....like two sizes if possible. The one pro to it being somewhat over-sized, is that it isn't nearly as sheer as it should've been based on the material (because if it had the opportunity to stretch the way it was intended to....you'd see all the goods). I would still have advised you to size down.
It's always refreshing and equally exciting when a brand or any establishment comes hard with something unique and kicks standards in the face (just a swift chop to the throat), I LIVE for out of the box pieces.
A little backstory, I never really owned any jumpsuits before (with the exception of like...an overall, which can kinda mimic a jumpsuit). So the fact that I was like....I NEEEEED this...? Yea, it's that good. Some may look at this piece and think..."What kind of tack-a-lacky shit is this?", to them I say (or ask rather), "How does it feel to be so fuckin' boring? Is it lonely in your self constructed box?" And then I'd offer them a hug, cuz it must be sad to be them, just saying.
Moving on. This jumpsuit comes up over the chest, but I sorta wanted to see how it would jive if I pulled it under by chesticles, needless to say, it was fiya *Inserts flame emoji* . I was like, I need to pair this down with a whole "street-wear" vibe, so naturally I included a pair of slides and a faux leather backpack (not that that's all it takes).
The top was some late 90's/early 00's raver type joint; when I came across it in one of my deep sea treasure hunt dives at Telco, and it cost a whopping $5? I was too hype.
The top actually rung up as two dollazzzzzz, that's right, you read correctly. Aside from the flare of the sleeves, the metal rings on the sleeves are what really set this mutha hubba off.
A few weeks later I came across the forbidden bandanna in a 99 cent store, immediately thinking back to the jumpsuit, I had to have it cuz I knew it'd be a lewk *Pops tongue*.
I threw on my teal shades, because c'mon, and nothing would do besides a high ponytail and fastening the bandanna like the late great, Tupac (my endless love). I chucked on my go-to bracelet situation as of late (also from Telco) and ya girl was set.
Lastly, how could I not rock a bold lip? You KNOW ya girl came thru on the lipstick tip.
Oh nothing, just giving y'all #BunsRealness, #NYCNativeRealness, #BishWhetRealness. *Sends you off with a final tongue pop*
