Did some shopping at Charlotte Russe back in October and November because I wanted to write a review about Charlotte Russe. Charlotte Russe has crossed my radar a number of times and I’ve always been curious about the experience of shopping at Charlotte Russe. I’m glad I finally got around to finding out. I know Charlotte Russe isn’t for women my age, but I wear what I want to wear and I’ll buy it from where ever sells it.

So I purchased while shopping at Charlotte Russe…

  • A burgundy Waterfall Duster Cardigan
  • A black Tulip Shift Dress
  • A tan Ribbed Bodycon Midi Dress
  • A pink Eyelash Lace Bodycon Dress
  • A Velvet Cold Shoulder Bodycon dress
  • A white Asymmetrical Ruffle-Trim Skirt
  • A burgundy Lace Bell Sleeve Bodysuit
  • A pair of fishnet tights
  • A blue Faux Suede Midi Slip Dress

I was much in need (and still am) of clothing for my photo shoot and video shoot wardrobe. You can’t exactly keep wearing the same things over and over. I can appreciate now what it’s like for the famous ladies out there. Not that I am trying to put myself into this category. But I am out there promoting my singing and songwriting on social media so I need to have a wardrobe that is fairly extensive and regularly updating. In my every day life I don’t really care. I have only a handful of things that I wear routinely (seriously). This dates way back to my adolescence and teens and was a source of frustration for my mother. Because as you can imagine, if you only wear the same thing all the time, you’re not laundering it very often. I guess I should be embarrassed to admit that I am still like this. I will wear the same thing for many days in a row.

Here are some photos from the various photo sessions I’ve done since purchasing the items above. They serve well for the purpose they were purchased. They fit well. Like I said, not for every day wear. I’m not showy when it comes to fashion. I prefer to be comfortable. I do enjoy dressing up for photos and being able to experiment with a variety of styles. But most of the things I buy are things that won’t get worn except for pictures and videos because they are not my everyday wear style.

I kinda ruined the cardigan not too long after by tying it at the waist. But really, I think that it got ruined is more to do with the quality of it because I should have been able to belt it without it being ruined.

Yes, I pretend that I am a model for a living. Guess that’s why I don’t make any money. Working for myself, by myself, it amounts to insanity I guess. But it’s what I do. You might classify it nothing but for me it is life.

The burgundy lace bodysuit has been used in a lot of photos and videos because it is one of the nicer tops in my wardrobe right now. I need a lot more tops.

These are just some of the items that I purchased from Charlotte Russe. I also picked up a handful of things from Forever21 and Macys. Hardly enough to cover my needs but at least I have a few more options for my photoshoots than what I had before.

As for shopping at Charlotte Russe, it wasn’t too bad. I didn’t enjoy the long wait to receive the items; but the items are good enough for wearing out. I wouldn’t wear them out personally, because I don’t wear shot tight dresses or low cut dresses in public. Maybe the cardigan, but like I said it’s already ruined. The items were cheap. I bought them on sale. They are obviously not the highest quality, but they aren’t the shoddiest things I’ve ever purchased either.
