Inspiration Monday: Tiger in the Grass

Inspiration Monday has come around today and I’m sorry to say that today there won’t be a surprise like I did on the Crane on Water, however I’m still bringing in a fist full of style!

I decided to use this picture of a tiger because it reminded me of the movie The Life Of Pi. At first I was a little skeptical of the movie because the trailers never seemed that interesting. My mom then rented the movie for us to watch and I decided to give it a chance because you can’t judge a book by its cover (or a movie by its trailer). The movie had so much symbolism and it was very interesting to go through Pi’s story. I never in a million years would have thought that I would enjoy the movie the way I did. The colors were amazing, they were so vibrant and colorful and it just caught the attention of my eye immediately. Also the emotions were strong, whatever the character felt I felt with him. I feel like this movie would be an amazing movie to watch in my literature class because of all the symbolism and literary devices.  I definitely recommend you to watch this movie if you haven’t seen it yet.

With this outfit I found the perfect dress. It includes all of the colors found in the picture. It had black, dark and light tan, and white. How much more perfect could it get? The earrings and the bracelet are both black and gold to match the dress. I did not include a necklace with the dress because the neck of the dress was high up and the necklace would just hide away among all the colors. The shoes are a light tan which is also found in the dress. I decided to go with these shoes because of how chic and stylish they looked compared to all of my other choices for this dress. The purse is white with gold tigers on it which I found perfect for the outfit.

I would wear this dress to a casual elegant soiree maybe in the afternoon or early evening. The options are endless and this outfit is definitely purrrrr- fect!

Tribal Nation Series: Office Tribal Outfit

Tribal Nation Series: Office Tribal Outfit

The third outfit to the Tribal Nation Series is an Office Tribal Outfit. I wanted to be able to show you guys how you can make tribal serious yet stylish. I have mentioned that the tribal pattern was a very fun and playful pattern, but if you are able to work with it right, you can end up with a more sophisticated and serious look. I know that if I were working in an office I would still want to be able to show off some of the latest trends yet in an appropriate way.

For this outfit I used the colors black and white because they are more business oriented colors and they are commonly used to show confidence and power. I also made sure that all the clothing was length appropriate for the work place. The skirt is knee-length black and white tribal pattern. The shirt is a simple black sheer shirt because if it were to have a pattern it would ruin the outfit by being too much. The blazer is white and black with an odd pattern that looks like a dragons tale, which I thought was pretty cool.  I kept all the accessories black (except for the earrings that had pearls) because the main attention is supposed to be on the clothes, also you don’t want things that will distract you from your work. The shoes are a glossy black because I always prefer a bit of shine to my shoes to get rid of all the simplicity.

Bringing Sexy Black

Black is a color of darkness and when we think of the color black we don’t usually think of pleasant things. I know when I think of the color black I think of funerals and the song “Back in Black” by AC/DC. I don’t tend to be completely happy when I think of the color either. I love wearing the color though, I think it looks great and it’s a very mature color. Most girls like to wear popping colors, but I have a lot of dark clothes. Black is seen as a very sexy color, people think that the only way to doing that is by getting themselves that little black dress every girl needs.

This outfit was created so that I can show you guys that black does not only have to represent darkness and that the only way to make black a nice sexy color is by only getting a short black or fitting dress. I decided to start with a black crop top, but I’m not too fond of showing my stomach so I decided to add a sheer polka doted shirt on top of it so that it could hide a little more skin. I added some black skinny jeans to the outfit. I think black jeans are amazing, I just love how it can contrast against some of the colors found in the shirts. I added some black sparkly jewelry because every girl needs a little sparkle. The shoes are black and the purse are black as well but they look very chic. I added the nails because I love the glossy black French look against the matted black nail polish. It gives texture to the nails, and I like the oddness of it. I used a red lipstick because that popping color at the top would compliment the outfit very well. Bold lips are usually a pretty good choice when wearing dark colors.

Strike a Pose, Vogue

I hate to say it, but fashion week ended recently. February 13th was the last day that designers showed their creations to the public. Once fashion week has ended we all know that magazines are going to be all over the news and trends. I decided to create this Vogue outfit because it’s one of the top fashion magazines out there, and because I love the content that they publish in their magazines. I decided to include a lot of colors in this outfit because Vogue is known for the quirky high fashion looks that they always bring to the table. Also the pictures used in the dress are very chic and stylish just like a photograph you might find on the polished pages of a Vogue magazine. I made sure to keep the rest of the accessories very simple because the dress is already loud and simple accessories will keep the outfit classy and chic.
