Picking outfits to go to work or school wasn’t that easy but choosing what to wear during quarantine isolation comes with its own set of challenges. I want to lounge in comfy pjs but I know I’ll have to walk my dog five times a day, so I really can’t unless I’m okay with looking like a crazy person. Then, there’s the uncertainty of not knowing if my boss will want to video call me at any given moment.
Luckily, mitúShop launched a collection dedicated to quarantine woes that features comfy attire with a side of cheeky commentary. Perfect for yourself and sweet enough to purchase as part of your care package for a loved one.
If you’re like me and you don’t want to mix your regular clothes with what you’re wearing during quarantine, consider this your new official quarantine uniform tee. It’s extra soft and no one will question your wardrobe choice during video calls — even if you decide to wear this every day.
Oh, quarantine. The not so sweet but absolutely necessary measure we all must take during the pandemic to stay healthy and alive. Sounds pretty drastic and dramatic but fortunately, the time in self-isolation means that we’ve experienced some pretty fantastically dramatic switch-ups. From work from home days to on the go cocktails, for many of us, there’s a lot to like about quarantine measures.
Recently, we asked our FIERCE readers what they’d like to hold onto about quarantine when it’s all over.
“Supporting small businesses! I can’t stress enough how many people have suddenly started coming out to keep their local businesses and mom and pop shops running. This should be a thing whether there is a pandemic or not! Keep your community strong, protect your local elotero, and give the big corporations a run for their money!!!” – itslinamarie
“Flex working. No longer an excuse that employees must be in the office.” – mixtapemcgee
Cocktails to go.
“Curbside pickup being regularly available.” –melchini
“All of it!! I feel at peace with people not getting close, knowing mugrosos are washing their hands and being covered in sanitizer, not crowding restaurants and spaces, supporting small businesses, I just feel like so much greatness has come from this but maybe I’m just a glass half full person.” –pinatapink
“6 ft apart rule should never leave! Especially those don’t know about personal space.” –artkidshirley
“Masks if you are sick or utilizing public transportation or crowded places. I lived in South Korea and I like how normalized it is there to wear it in public places. I think this will help most of us stay away from other people’s kuddies when we are out and about. Definitely wearing it in the airplane. More often than not I get some sort of cold after traveling.” – haveacupofjohanny
Vogue México knows a good trend when it comes to the fashion world. Their recent decision to feature model Vanessa Romo on the cover of their September issue proves that they also know a classic too. Speaking with Vogue México the model opened up about her career, challenges, and experiences that have allowed her to position herself as one of the modeling world’s most prominent figures.
The model with Mexican roots started out her career by modeling on small projects then moved up to uploading images to Instagram and eventually became discovered by Forever 21. Soon after, the North American fast-fashion brand offered Romo a collaboration and she was ultimately signed to an agent.
Now she’s Vogue México’s September model.
In her interview with Vogue, Romo says that the first time she saw plus-size models on a runway, her view of the fashion industry completely shifted.
Seeing women with bodies just like hers, made Romo feel represented in a way that was beautiful and confident. Speaking to Vogue México, Romo explains that she struggled her first two years as a model because she was still in college at University of California, Santa Bárbara. Because of her Latin roots, Romo studied Chicano Studies and Spanish. Her interest led her to continue to explore her identity and Romo decided to audition for Nuestra Belleza Latina on Univision in 2018.
Romo told Vogue that she decided to take part in the competition because she knew there was a need for this representation in the Latino community. When she finished the contest, she realized that she needed to continue breaking expectations for models.
“With this new inspiration, she decided to learn to love her body. Modeling and fashion were for her a way of exploring her own confidence and growing her,” Vogue México revealed. “The power of modeling captivated her so much that it was then that she realized that she herself wanted to be part of the change. Just as she needed empowerment, she knew that there were so many girls and women who needed it equally.”
