STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Be A Lady

Uncategorized

When Lionel Richie sang his devoted song Three Times A Lady, I believe he was onto something. After spotting this Fashionista (the last of the epic three girls I approached at the markets), my heart fluttered with joy to see such a ladyl Fashionista! My current love for outrageous flower crowns had me first noticing her purple flower crown popping up in the crowd. At that moment I already had bowed down in appreciation tp her daring headpiece choice. To me she was titled queen of the daring Fashionistas!

Then came her laced dolly white dress — oh how cute it was! I managed to ask her where she purchased the dress from and she said with a smile ‘Lady Petrova!’ An absolute girly boutique filled with flower crowns, prom dresses and balloon unicorns (for mere visual display), it wasn’t a surprise where she got the outfit inspiration from. The puritan and angelic look without effort turned heads. By now angels were shining light down upon her and her halo was shining. Oh hallelujah!

Lastly, her whimsical heart shaped patterned stockings and Dorothy-like red magic shoes just had me at hello. First she was queen, then she was an angel sent from heaven. Life just got so much better! In adding up all these items (one: the flower crown, two: the dress, three: the stockings and four: the shoes) it is fair enough to say this Fashionista is four times a Lady.
If being girly is your thing, follow this Fashionistas style head to toe! Be daring and wear the ultra feminine dress to class. You can easily find a doll dress like this at your local vintage store.

Add some bright stockings, cute-as-a-button shoes and top it off with over-the-top accessories such as a flower crown. It is so easy to DIY your own flower crown these days. Just grab a plain headband, faux flowers and a glue gun. Once your outfit is complete, go out for some tea and macaroons. It’s nice to be a lady.

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Be a Lady

Uncategorized

I love being trendy. There is nothing more exciting to me than trend forecasting, following, and obsessing. The joy I get from crazy and outlandish accessories and articles of clothing can’t be beat. Giant heart-shaped purse? Check. Multi-colored sequined mini-dress? Got it. Purple mini-top hat that clips to the side of my head on a jaunty angle? It’s right there in my closet.I am perfectly pleased with my style and choice of fashions, but I have always slightly envied girls that always look pulled together, classic, and ladylike. I don’t know how they can look so sleek everyday without loading on glitter, feathers, or studs in some manner, but I commend them. This Fashionista is perfectly poised in a well-fitting sheath, little stud earrings, and cute kitten heeled sandals in, what you can tell is, her totally modern classic style. But guess what, Fashionistas; she is right on point with the trendiest of trends right now!

It is totally in style to be a lady right now, Fashionistas. Take note from the women of Mad Men, and add a bit of ‘50s and ‘60s flair to your wardrobe. Invest in a well-fitting sheath that can be dressed up or down, add a leopard print kitten heel, and top off the look with cat eye sunglasses. You will look pulled together, ladylike, classic, and trendy all at once. This outfit might not be the most practical for the everyday college campus, so break the look apart and pair each article with your own stylish ensembles. So, even if you love trendy trends like me, you still get the chance to be pulled together and ladylike, even if it is fleeting.

Keep in mind though that being ladylike and classy in personality never goes out of style, Fashionistas!
