Sizes May Vary

Sizes in clothing stores varies everywhere you go and for this week’s Teen Vogue and Parsons assignment I’m showing you how some of my sizes varies from one of my favorite clothing stores Buckle.

One thing I’m obsessed with buying is bodysuits. I’m loving the bodysuit trend right now and one thing I’ve been noticing is all bodysuits do not fit the same. I love this versatile one piece and finding shirts I can make look like a bodysuit such as finding fitted tops. I would compare shopping for bodysuit to shopping for swimsuits. So if you don’t like swimsuit shopping bodysuits aren’t your thing. I always wanted to be the person that could go into a store and know a medium will fit but unfortunately that isn’t the case. Below I attached me in a variety of bodysuits and tops all in the size large but as you can see some are more flattering than others.

What I found with each piece is they are all stretchy which I like but the fringe bodysuit I noticed during the day when I’m wearing the bodysuit it stretch out more and more. I’m usually a medium but for bodysuits I have to get a large because I have a long torso. All the bodysuits snapped at the bottom but the fringe one was cut shorter underneath so snapping it could be a little difficult. If I could go back in time I would change my mind on getting the fringe bodysuit. The blush bodysuit had the most give because the back was strappy and open.

I hope you enjoyed my experience with bodysuits. I would recommend this versatile piece for anytime of the year. Throw it on with a skirt, jeans, or dress pants. You can do it all!

Parsons x Teen Vogue Production cost

For one of my assignments in my Parsons x Teen Vogue course talks about production costs and how to make a better profit. I wanted to share what I’ve learned just in case some of you all are entrepreneurs. 

I’ve calculated how much it’ll cost me to continue making these pair of earrings one set at a time. 


These is my calculations on if I buy my materials in bulk for my earrings. 

In the end I realized it’s cheaper to buy my materials in bulk because my production costs lowers making my profit increase from $4.06 to 7.56 per earring. The sources I would use to purchase my materials in bulk are whole sellers from Amazon and eBay but if I decide to use whole sellers outside the country I would calculate making a even bigger profit. 

When you’re looking to make a bigger profit try finding ways to maximize your earnings such as buying in bulk or buying overseas.
