I’m A Sinner Series: Greed Outfit

I'm a Sinner Series: Greed Outfit

When I think of Greed my mind always goes back to my childhood when I used to watch Spongebob Squarepants. Mr.Krabs truly represented greed with his obsession over money and not wanting to spend a single cent. I remember there was this one episode where they had a stingiest Crab award that went to a crab who truly demonstrated their ability to go a long way by spending little to no money. Greed is the next sin in Dante’s Inferno and it is seen as a sin because you’re keeping something to yourself and not doing anything valuable with it so therefore it’s being wasteful. We all have had moments where we’ve been a little greedy. There have been times where I would see something that I need but then think about how I don’t want to spend my money on it. I have been thinking about this sin and I wonder, would it be greed to possess a skill or a talent and not use it?

This outfit is pretty self explanatory as to why it represents greed. I mean there is money within the outfit itself. Also the yellow and the gold in the outfit is supposed to reflect on currency. I mean someone has got to be pretty protective of their money when they’ve even got it around their neck. I totally feel like this is an outfit Mr. Krabs would look into just so he can count the coins he’s got around his neck. 🙂

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Pink and Blue Table Setting

Monday Inspiration Outfit teen fashion blog

Do you know what day it is today? I know I do, it is inspiration Monday! I’m pretty sure that with all the Pinterest viewing I do, it should become an official hobby. I just think that it’s interesting to see things that other people like, gives me other perspectives sometimes. I get a lot of inspirations from things that I find on there, I also try a lot of recipes. By the way, don’t go on Pinterest when you are hungry. During Christmas time my mom found a lot of food recipes on Pinterest and they all turned out to be amazing. I have to say, I think Pinterest might be my drug. It grips me and keeps me in its death lock.

The most recent piece that interested me was this table setting. I know what you’re thinking, what is a teenage girl doing looking at table settings? Well my mom’s passion is creating tablescapes, so when she sees something she likes and pins it, I can see it on my wall as well. She’s always posting really pretty tablescapes, but I thought I would have a little more fun working with this one. I also thought the colors went really great together.

The dress is very modern and futuristic, kind of like the vases used to hold the flowers. I used this square blue purse because it looks like the napkins used. The shoes on the bottom are pink and silver, it is a little odd, but it is definitely fun and shows you’re ready for a party. The rest of the accessories are blue and silver. Inspiration comes from everywhere, anything can become a work of art.

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Holiday Cookie Sacks

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Holiday Cookie Sacks teen fashion blog
One of my favorite things to do when I’m bored is to go through Pinterest and look at the wide variety of things people have interests in. Every now and then I find a few things that catch my eye and I pin. I was browsing through the crafts section and all of a sudden I saw these cookie sacks. I thought they were super cute and that they would be good for putting gifts in or even for decoration. I also like the contrast of the green and the red against the brown bags.  I was inspired by the bags because they were very seasonal and I like creating seasonal outfits now and then. I like how the bags include a small amount of red, yet it catches enough attention. Also the way they are displayed and created is really creative. In the outfit I made sure to use that small amount of red so that I get the same outcome as the bags. I want to give a big thank you to Lisa from celebrate-creativity.com for letting me use her picture in my post. Check her website when you have a chance, she has a lot of pretty things. I often get inspirations and I like to turn them into outfits. What do you like to do with your inspirations?

Metallic Fashion Series: Gold Rush

Metallics Fashion Series: Gold Rush by teen fashion blog featuring a bangle bracelet
Lots of school homework today so I’m in a bit of a rush. Having a teen fashion blog can be a bit stressful, lots to do! The gold, black and white color palette in this set is an all time classic. The metallic in the outfit is coming from the pants and the gold detail in the jacket. Even though the pant is metallic gold, the fabric is not the shiny, glossy kind so the look is still very elegant. Because I used a metallic pant, I made sure to use accessories that wouldn’t overtake from the impact of the gold pant. In my opinion, choosing shiny accessories would have given this outfit a not so refined look. Don’t be afraid to add a couple of metallic pieces to your wardrobe, just be careful with the selection of the color and material of the fabric. Choosing the right fabric is critical to achieving an elegant look. As you can see with this outfit, if you are bold enough you can take the metallic look to the office. What is the boldest piece of clothing you own?

Metallic Fashion Series: Silver Rights Movement

Metallic outfit teen fashion blog
As we all know, today is Martin Luther King day.  Martin Luther King inspired people all around the world to stand up for what they believe in and to stick by it. He fought against segregation between blacks and whites and wanted equal rights for people of all races. He led multiple civil rights movements and stood tall for his beliefs. I admire his leadership skills, his confidence, and the ability to move the masses. I decided to do the Silver Rights Movement in honor of Dr. King.
This week I’m starting the first outfit series of my teen fashion blog, the metallic series. I decided to incorporate metallic colors into my outfits because some people get the idea that metallics are too flashy and/or tacky. If you know how to play with metallic colors the right way and don’t put too much you can create a really amazing outfit. I want to show everyone how to incorporate metallics into your closet in a fashionable way. The metallic color in this outfit is silver which can be very modern when appropriately styled. The shape and simplicity of the colors in the skirt make it very modern. The shirt is a black and white fringed sleeveless blouse which is tucked  into the skirt. The shirt is a variation of a tuxedo shirt. To go over the shirt I added a silver blazer to incorporate a little more silver and give the outfit a little edge. The heels are mostly silver with black square outlines and the flats are mostly black with a bit of silver. The jewelry is all silver and black, all the shapes are different which makes the outfit visually interesting. The clutch is ombre, it fades from black to white. The clutch adds more circles to the outfits, yet again adding more shapes. Martin Luther King became a role model to multiple people all over the world. Do you have a role model?
