DRESSX Metalook: Cropped Puffy Jacket
[ready for a playdate at the end of the world]
This photo has been formulating in my mind for a long time, and I am so glad that it finally all came together! The backdrop, the jumpsuit, the digital jacket... it's all just *chef kiss*! There's a lot to talk about here and I've been very excited to share it all!

Cropped Digital Jacket
Let's start at the top and talk about this fabulous jacket! It's the Cropped Puffy Jacket by Balmlabs, and it was the first digital garment I ever added to my favorites on DRESSX. But it's a bit of a peculiar garment, so it needed to be paired with just the right outfit and photographed in just the right location. It's so unique and for a long time I wasn't sure how I was going to do it justice!
[definitely one of my best thrift shop finds of all time]
This is definitely one of my best thrift shop finds ever! Usually I don't got for jumpsuits, but this was on the $1 rack at one of my favorite thrift shops so I felt compelled to try it on, and it fit perfectly so of course I couldn't pass it up! It's originally from Anthro so I knew it wasn't cheap; I later found the same jumpsuit on Poshmark new with the original tags, and it retailed for $158. I scored bigtime!
[the unique vibe here was just *begging* for a photo shoot]
Once upon a time, there was a school at one of the churches in my neighborhood. I'm not sure what year the school closed but it's definitely been a while now judging by the size of a tree that's grown up through the middle of what has become a literal jungle gym! The whole place has a very post-apocalyptic yet playful vibe.

I've been wanting to do a fashion shoot at this location for over a year but wasn't sure how I was going to maximize the unique feel it has. Once I imagined all of these elements together I knew I'd found the right combination. Putting it all together was a long time in the making but I think the final results were well worth the wait!
