city chic - here's what I'm thinkin'

It's been a while since my last blog post...please do forgive me but I have one terribly unfashionable word for you: CRUTCHES! ugh. Anyhoo, I'll try to work in OOTD posts here and there but right now my wardrobe consists of easy to pull on sweats and that's hardly interesting. So, back to businesss!

City Chic launched in the US a few months ago and I must admit, I was sort of excited. They had these titillating emails with a count down clock enticing me to check back with the website as they delayed the launch for a few weeks. When it finally went live my first response was..."seriously?" A hand full of "eh" pieces that were a little to juniors department for my taste.

Fast forward to a few days ago: I went onto CityChicOnline.com and thought, hmmm...now we are talking! It reads to me like a hybrid of Torrid and Asos. There is still a fair amount of "eh" but there are also some pretty stand out pieces that don't look like stuff you can find anywhere and really are CHIC. Below are a few of my favs:

The above Mesh Studded Skater Top is my favorite thing on the site. The kimono style top has mesh inserts on the shoulders and back and looks effortlessly cool. I love easy tops that are comfy but have dope details that add interest. This will be MINE, oh yes...it will be mine!
The So Cute Contrast dress (blk/coral) is really "so cute" but looks like a few things I already own so I don't feel like I'm dying to have it but it's adorable and worth featuring. To be honest if the black bodice where white it'd be a little more edgy and more of something I want to own. The Caltlyn Maxi dress is great. Something I'd want to wear to a pool party with embellished flats. And lastly the Zip Front Dress has a fantastic geometric print and is great for now with tights and leather or summer with sandals. *Thumbs UP*

These Self Tie Cargo slacks seem sooooo versatile! Pair them with a slouchy jersey top, a sexy tuxedo blazer or even this Silver Lace Top. I forever love denim but trousers are the new sexy. Pumps, Chuck Taylors, Flip Flops...Hotness.
