Pretty little liars fashion: The fashion show...

If you are not in Fashion, you are nobody"
- Lord Chesterfield 

Pretty little liars. Its a show not only known for its drama and gripping plot but now it is now for its trend setting clothes. If you haven't watched the show, you shouldn't be even reading this, you should be finding a way to watch it online right now, because seriously y, this is a show to watch.  In a recent  episode of pretty little liars, there was a charity fashion show. What better place to show off  some great style than a fashion show? so as the girls hit the catwalk  i sat there with some chips and my sister and we watched criticizing and complementing every look.


 The first look that appeared was a  stylish resort  collection . The girls presented us with some coral colours, flirty patterns, light weight fabrics and some almost hippy like accessories. All together the opening outfits were my fav of the day.


 The secound look was sort of punk rock rebel. The girls appeared ina blur of killer boots, tutus, fur and feathers. With there hair full of hairspray and there shoes as high as could be , this was definatly the section for fun!


 The last four looks were gorgeous Alexander Mcqueen gowns.  In the episode these were the dresses picked by Alison herself and played an important part to the story remembering Alison.  The girls looked totally glamorous in these dresses and they were the perfect way to conclude the fashion show.

So i was left with the urge to create my own pretty little liars runway look and so this morning i made it happen. I decided on using the resort look for inspiration, particularly Hanna's look.

Getting out of the uniform...

"Every uniform corrupts ones character"

- Max Frisch



We all know her, we may not love her but we all secretly admire her.
Blair Waldorf.
Shes just one of the impeccably dressed characters i plucked from the show to look at. Gossip Girl is a show that i myself look to for  fashion inspiration.  One of the many things admired by many are the gossip girl school uniform. For those who are forced to wear uniforms everyday, you must understand my pain. In real life we don't look like this at all.
As we sit in 4th period English class, we close our eyes and in our heads transform our green frumpy uniform from Santa's little helper, to one of Blair's stylish minions.  Despite our dreams, when we open our eyes all we are presented with unfashionable zoo animals, nawt the cast from gossip girl.
Although Gossip Girl has left high school i still cant help but re-watch season one and admire their school uniforms.
so i found myself transformed today into one of Blair Waldorf's minions and i could never even begin to compete with the costume designer of the show, i had fun. P.S thanks for the shoes big sister ;)



Ofcourse i had my headband,


The shoes,


The Bag,

Do little girls ever really grow up?

"I met this wonderful girl at Macy's. She was buying clothes and i was putting slinkies on the escalator"
- Stephen Wright


A little girl skips past me in the park. Shes wearing a tutu and a pink sparkly top. Her little hands hold onto the tiara on top of her head. Her feet are bare as she runs across the grass, they have turned pink because its so cold. A few seconds later an older women follows. The little girls mother. She wears a black pencil skirt trimmed with tulle, to others this skirt looks powerful and serious. She probably works as a CEO or something. But i don't see that when i look at her skirt. When i see the tulle peeking out, i see a little girl who never grew up.
People say you have to grow up eventually, we have to grow older, grow wiser. But there is always a little girl hiding behind the business suits and briefcases. A little girl who wants to frolic around in the rain and feel the grass between her toes.
So i was a little girl for a day and ditched my shoes and threw on a pretty dress.






What do you think?

To shop or not?


"High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead."

-Christopher Morley



Online shopping. Hawt or nawt? oui ou non?

Personally i love the feeling when you enter as store. I love to feel the fabrics fall from hangers between my fingertips. I love the smell of leather, and designer perfume that circles my nostrils whenever i enter a store. So you couldsay that a week ago the thought of online shopping was nothing i never considered. But what can i say? when im presented with a bargin, ill snap it up whether its online or not.

Glassons recently hit the online fashion world and i cant lie and say i hate their online store. Despite it not having every item that they sell instore, the site is packed with amazing bargins. So i couldnt help but click that "add to cart" button when i came across afew deals.

One of which was these beautiful boots.

stylish, cheap yet not cheap looking, These shoes have been stuck to my feet all week, my favourite knew winter item.

 

 


With my goodies delivered to my doorsteep in 2 days, my first online shopping experience left me happy.

Share your opinion on online shopping,

Colour Blocking et moi....

 

“I base my fashion sense on what doesn't itch.”
-Gilda Radner

Colour blocking. Its not a new trend but it has certainly caused a wave of colour to hit the fashion world. Colour blocking is taking two or more colours and combinging it into blocks of colour. From head to toe you can find colour blocking in all of the stores this season.

Some of my fav colour blocking items are these bags: (lady dior and marc jacobs)
