Sporty Girl

Happy last day of the month!

In case you didn’t know, I LOVE sports! Well, not all sports, as my lovely husband can attest to me not really following football until I started dating him. However, I do enjoy sports. Actually, basketball in particular! When I saw this Lakers shirt at Forever21 I immediately fell in love with it. I’ve been a Laker fan since the Shaq Big Aristotle days and even though my team hasn't been doing too good lately (dammit Kobe, why didn’t you take less money like Dirk?), I still represent my team. (That’s right, I’m a true fan!) lol.
This outfit has a sporty yet girly vibe. I decided to bring out the purple with some bright red accents. I paired the Lakers tank with some high waisted denim shorts. These have been my go-to pair for the summer and I love how they were under $20! I accessorized the look with this red belt and a red clutch. I loved the way it gave the outfit the girly vibe. I, also, wore these comfy little red canvas slip-ons, which I always seem to forget I have. Lastly, I kept the jewelry to a minimum; since I wanted to keep the outfit simple and not take away from the sporty vibe, I just layered two simple necklaces.
What are some of your favorite sporty looks that you’ve done? Please feel free to comment below!

Red & Leopard

Hi guys!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Do you guys remember the last time I wore distressed jeans? I surely don't lol. This type of look is always my favorite. When I saw these jeans on GoJane I just knew I had to have them. I love how distressed they are and they were boyfriend jeans; to me, that was such a great combination because of how comfortable they were. I originally had a different shirt I was going to pair them with but I happened to smear lipstick on my shirt (story of my life LOL) before even heading out the door. Does this only happen to me!?
I changed into this light sweater crop top, which worked great for the evening breeze. I love this sweater because it was a gift from my grandma. (Thanks grandma!) She always says I resemble her fashion style from when she was younger., and she is definitely right!
To finish the look I was very excited to finally wear these leopard pumps. I'm so in love with them. I added red accessories, like this belt and this bright red statement necklace. Red and leopard is really a classic combo that I always find myself coming back to. What's one of your styles that you guys keep coming back to?

Crop Top & Florals

I love Fridays!!!
It puts a smile on my face. 

Sometimes, summer calls for some simple 1-2-3 and you’re out the door outfits. I wore this outfit for a little Sunday funday. If you haven't noticed by now, I reserve Sundays for fun. lol I did a little walking through the park and a few errands with my husband so I wanted something simple to wear.
I wore a pair of floral loose pants. It really doesn't get any more comfy than this. Florals have been the "it" print of the summer. I paired it with a black cut out crop top. I love this crop top because it has a built in bra; this little feature ladies is genius. I think I've lost count of the amount of times that I've worn this crop top this summer but it's definitely a cute one.
To accessorize, I wore a hat that added the chic factor to the entire look. I kept the jewlery to a minimum because it was just too hot of a day. Don't you guys feel like that sometimes? Lastly, I added nude flats and a nude clutch to finish my Sunday-funday look.

The Fashion Victim

Happy Humpday!

When I saw this "Fashion Victim" shirt, I fell in love with it. As you can see, that's my blog's URL so I knew I had to get it. I had it on my wish list to buy eventually and my lovely husband surprised me with it after I had shown it to him. 
At first I was thinking of pairing it with jeans but it went perfectly with this white skirt. I don't like to own too many white pieces because I always seem to dirty myself lol. Sure enough after this shoot I ended up smudging a little bit of my lipstick on the skirt. smh (monkey hand over eyes emoji)
I really love this skirt because it's very flowy and comfy. It's definitely a piece I can transition to the Fall and pair it with booties and a blazer. Trust me, this is not the last you'll see of this skirt. Let's just hope I can keep it clean! I wore these white ankle straps heels, which are seriously comfortable. Chic and comfy is a plus in my book. To add some color to this outfit, I wore a bold red purse that really brightened up the outfit. Of course a bold rep lip to go with it as well. Duh!

The reason why I chose thefashionvictim as my blog's URL is because I feel we are victims to fashion as we try to always keep up the latest trends, labels and having to spend costly to to so. I feel that it's not about the brand, it's about style and finding your own style. There's nothing wrong with looking and feeling good about yourself on budget friendly prices. It's all about finding what works for you.

A Field of Florals

Happy Monday beautiful people!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

(my little friend in the background)

Have you guys ever bought something and thought you had the perfect thing to pair it with and it just didn't work that way? Well... that happened to me with this skirt. I had another top and look envisioned for this beautiful flowy skirt and I just didn't like it. So, when I recently purchased this floral top, I was skeptical because it wasn't my initial thought for the outfit. However, when I put the outfit together? It was a perfect match for this skirt. It's very summery and gave my idea a fresh look. The colorful floral print looks really vibrant against the coral. I love the details of the skirt with the slits on each side. Together with the coral made this the perfect summer skirt for me. 
I lightly accessorized the look with a gold bangle set and a brown clutch. To finish the look, I wore nude ankle strap heels and a lively coral-colored lipstick. I'm definitely crushing on coral this summer!
I ventured off this weekend with my husband and found this beautiful park with a pretty pond. I was a little scared to take my pictures because there were a few geese there and I swear one of them was out to get me! lol He just kept getting closer and closer. Haha. Maybe he just wanted to make an appearance on my blog.

Give it a Statement

Hi guys!
Happy humpday! We made it halfway through this week.

Chic and simple looks are always great for the daytime weekend. I wore this outfit this past Sunday for a little Sunday-funday action. I went to the movies with my husband and I wanted to dress comfy. I paired this coral skater skirt with a plain white blouse. I always say these plain white blouses always come in handy for simple outfits. To spruce up the look and give it a little wow factor I wore this statement necklace from Armed&Readi. I was introduced to A&R during one of their events I attended a few months ago. They seriously have some pretty jewelry. That night I ended up getting this beauty. I love the little mix of coral it had and I felt it accentuated very well with the skirt. 
To finish the look I added a gold bangle, a few stackable rings and this camel clutch from Furormoda This clutch was $4 during their Fourth of July sale! It was an awesome steal. Lastly, I wore these nude flats to be comfy on my date to the movies. 

Skirt - Debshops
Necklace - Armed&Readi
Clutch - Furormoda (here)
Shoes - Forever21
Lipstick - Rimmel #12 Rossetto
