The Many Sides is a shopping hub for indie, alternative, edgy, and creative fashion. You could almost think of it as an art gallery where you could purchase the pieces and wear them! I gathered my favorite winter clothes from their website to show you! It seems like I found a favorite designer as well—Alice’s Pig. They had me at tartan. Plus of course, the fur and the whole 90s school girl vibe. Sadly, my school’s uniform that I wore from first grade all the way to freshman year was not plaid. I’m making up for it now! Alice’s Pig is a reflection of my ideal wardrobe, at least as of lately. It’s grunge but preppy and rebellious but conservative. That about sums me up! Oh, and geometry?

The tooth necklace above is from the designer Bukkehave. If I was into shopping for jewelry much, I would want to have their collection. It’s ghastly, dark, and downright beautiful.

The coat below is cute (also from Alice’s Pig), but I really just put this photo up because I can’t believe how strikingly similar this model’s face looks like mine in some photos when I had solid black hair! blitzynavycoatalicespig

Had I been writing this back in 2010, I would’ve picked Yohan Kim from The Many Sides as my favorite designer, down to the choice of hair and makeup. Below is an example of his work. I still marvel at the designs!

To give praise to the other awesome designers, I’ve included below Morphe to the left and Efi Dolcini to the right. themanysides2

So, on to the best part! The Many Sides is giving away two £50 vouchers to TWO winners! If you look at their website, you could surprisingly find many that are worth that much or less. My favorite top I featured above from Alice’s Pig for example is only £38.

What I Wear on a Typical Workout Day

citypisces-alamodest-wedgesneakers-beige-workout-exercise-outfit citypisces-alamodest-wedgesneakers-beige-workout-exercise-outfit

On a typical workout day…

CLOTHES. I always wear capri leggings and a sleeveless workout top. They’re great for flexibility moves and inversions, so you don’t accidentally flash someone while you’re upside down! I find that loose workout clothing can actually be more immodest depending on what you’re doing! A nice snug but not too tight outfit is best. Too constrictive is uncomfortable and will limit your range of motion.

I usually opt for darker tones for bottoms to minimize my bottom curves, but today I opted for something brave and bright for a change. It’s summertime after all!

I also find that capri leggings as opposed to full length leggings also minimize the look of bulkiness on the legs. If you’re heavier on the bottom or have short legs, you can either go for dark colors to draw away attention from that area or wear below the knee capris to hide where your knees end. Capris also hug the hips, butt, thighs, and everything else… so there’s also the option of wider leg capris if you want to be a bit more covert!

I sweat SO MUCH that I have to wear clothing with material that’s breathable, so I can’t wear 100% cotton or anything heavy. Invest in a good workout top (and bra) and bottom!

JEWELRY. I try not to wear any jewelry when working out especially when doing yoga. If I do, I make sure it’s not metal. I believe that when practicing any kind of meditative exercise, metal on your body disrupts the flow of energy that’s needed for healing. That means no underwire for my sports bras.

SHOES. When I don’t do yoga, I like wearing comfortable sneakers. I don’t do a lot of cardio at all but instead do a lot of interval training and isometric exercises like yoga and Pilates, so there’s really no need for me to wear typical running sneakers when I go to the gym. These neutral sneakers with a tiny wedge in them are from City Pisces. They’re sort of beige too, so they help elongate the look of the legs! I like that these sneakers are only $30!

Speaking of, City Pisces will be having a giveaway for SHOES, SHOES, SHOES hosted here on ALAMODEST this week! Watch out for it!

 When you have good workout clothes on, you feel good about yourself and your workout. I personally tend to want to achieve more!

What do you like to wear when you workout?
