So I’m in Paris!

My European fashion week adventure is coming to a close, and I fly home on Thursday. It’s been a lot of fun, but also very tiring, and there are many Mail Bombs and What to Wear requests that need solving (and my full attention!). Over the weekend, I attended the Kenzo show (see my review here), and since I love Kenzo so much, decided to wear a jumpsuit from their Spring 2013 collection.

It’s been pretty warm and sunny à Paris, so I slipped on a denim jacket (and my J.Crew coat over that–not pictured). I accessorized with my mirrored Proenza Schouler PS11 for a pop of color.

If only I had known, I would’ve packed a pair of white pumps! But with few options, I simply wore my DSquared Raso Boots.

I’m so ready for Spring (aren’t you?). The great thing about this jumpsuit is that you can unzip the leg to make it into a short suit/romper.

Please believe you’ll be seeing me in this again when the weather truly warms up!

Fashion Week is always a humbling experience for a blogger, especially for a blogger of color. The blog has come super far in almost 7 years, but we still have a ways to go. I try my best to stay positive, put on a smile, wear cheery colors, and keep plugging.

Shout out to Cliché, Faith, and Jihan who hold it down big time as I do the Fashion Week Circuit.
Also, thanks for your support guys, you make it all worth it.

Seeing an item on a model who looks like me certainly encourages me to buy. What about you?

  1. Um… about it looks was better on you than the model Claire! U look great! Love the blog!

  2. Yes Claire! That waist is SNATCHED. And the diversity on the runway at PFW this year has been quite disappointing.

  3. You look amaze as always. I can’t believe how well that jumper suits you! Here I was thinking jumpers didn’t go well with curves.

  4. “Seeing an item on a model who looks like me certainly encourages me to buy.”

    100% agree!

  5. Good job Claire! You look so good. I need to hit the gym ASAP. Who designed the jumpsuit?

  6. @ Nikkie: reading is knowledge…smh

    I think the jumpsuit looks freasher, more easy-breezy, less stuffed on the model.

  7. I don’t understand how Claire always get all kinds of positive compleaments on her style! And she never looked right to me. She has nice legs and get outfits but she doesn’t know how to put it together. For example that jump suite is HOT but weraing that with a denim jackaet? with that bag and shoe? really? This is just an example but I have seen it too many times to not say anything about it. Lets keep it realllllllllllll

  8. Cute look Claire. And may I say, your outfit is far more flattering on you, than the model!

  9. eeeh@the truth you went all in lol. i think everyone has their style and its not going to please everyone. What i do appreciate about claire is that she DOES put herself out there too. its not just the bombshells getting scrutinized lol

  10. love it…looking good. blonde locks are my weakness

    Give that itty bitty purse away immediately – trustme…

  11. I like it better w/ out the jacket. Cute look Claire!! Keep up the good work with the blog. It’s a daily obsession for me:)

  12. Claire, whatever diet you’re on, I want deets…STAT! Love the jumper on you, much better than on the model. I’d have preferred to see it with a blazer rather than the denim jacket but it’s haute nonetheless.

  13. Yeah… this looks fab sans the jacket.

    @The Truth… I thought I was the only one.

  14. Claire you have just BLOOMED in the last two years! Embrace your set! You are the new Fashion Sect dear!

    Your waist is Yasssss. Kenzo is SERIOUS about fit I see. Your HAIR IS LOVE. With the casual coolness of the label, I was thinking you couldve probably done a parka and call me crazy, a metallic shoe!

    SN: Our nails match! Im wearing OPIs cream of crete!

  15. Personally, the jumpsuit on the model is too big. She looks like a sanitation worker! But on Claire it is VERY flattering. I must disagree with you nay sayers….

    And I’m feeling the denim jacket as well. {¯\_(ツ)_/¯}

  16. @The Truth: You said what alot of people were probably thinking , but were too afraid to say! #bravegirl

  17. that jumpsuit is all kinds of HOTTT! I’ sm not usually a fan of jumpsuits but I want that one…lol Claire when are you going to do a travel post, I would love to hear and get tips about traveling aboard and your experience with it!

  18. Wow you are a Vision! Just Purely Gorgeous and you wore it Better than the model!!!!!

  19. @The truth: back to say I agree with everything. Claire owns the blog after all so maybe people prefer to stay politically-correct and considerate.

  20. LOVE IT. And I’m sure Truth Teller and Eloise are those ratchets wearing $2 weave and shopping at Rainbow. Wouldn’t know style if it smacked ’em. You look young and vibrant. Fab!

  21. Claire, you and your body are amazing! I have been on this site for over 5 years and you encourage me to live my dream. You have come super far in 7 years but I know this only the beginning. May God continue to bless you.

  22. You look great to me! And for the record zclarie didnt bribe me with her fab blog to get my opinion.

  23. LOL @ Nunya I was really telling u guys how I felt. I have been noticing this stuff for years and I couldn’t take it anymore. I like Claire and the blog so I was not trying to be mean.

    I understand we all have different style and not all of us will like her style but her style is way off most of the time and she gets all kinds of complaints. I am starting to think most of u work for her or something lol

  24. – The Truth – You are absolutely entitled to your opinion. And it’s your opinion against the majority. It is a matter of taste, and style, and Claire has her own. I do agree with her that white shoes would look better, but consider that it is warm in Paris but not warm enough to wear the jumpsuit on its own, therefore she paired it with what she had, a denim jacket and I think it made the look more edgy. Again – matter of opinion.

    Claire you look stunning, you are my motivation indeed. I’m happy for you for the growth you are experiencing, and I hope you accomplish what you have planned for life.

  25. I really don’t like it with the denim jacket, but alone its super cute. Maybe with a diff belt idk. In any case I love how you experiment with your style, its not always my taste, but cute none the less. I wish we could see more everyday looks as opposed to events/fashion week looks. Ootd?

  26. Groupthink!

    I am still loving the locs, I kinda miss mines :(
    Is the belt removable on the jumpsuit? Maybe rock it with a skinny belt? The length on Claire is perfect; right to the bottom of her shoe.

  27. Im here for ur weightloss plan thanks.. Cuz honey ur serving me diet lemonade n salmon.. Ur snatched.

  28. Im late but I definitely agree with THE TRUTH, but on another late note the jumpsuit is fab and I love this blog visit it daily

  29. Hello Bombshells! Thanks for the lovely comments. For those who hate it: Can’t please everyone *shrugs*.
    And thanks to everyone for reading:))

  30. Oh honey no. This outfit is awful. Maybe as a romper? Maybe. The Truth said exactly what I was thinking. Sorry.

  31. Claire, how tall are you? That’s how I like my pant to look so if you are about 5′ 10″ I’m about to be Kenzo’s number one fan.
