Next week a well-known holiday is coming around, Valentine’s Day. Some people dread this holiday and others take the day to appreciate the people they love. I love Valentine’s Day because I’m a lover not a hater. Today I’m kicking off my Valentine’s Day series For the Love of Fashion and will continue to add Valentine’s day related posts throughout the week. This series will give you ideas on what to get for your special person, what to do that day, and of course tips on what to wear. Something that I struggle on every year is what I will be wearing to school that day. I always try to look special on Valentine’s Day, I have never had a boyfriend but I do like giving a good impression. I decided to help out you guys as well, I know girls have the same problem with trying to find something appropriate to wear to school. I came up with four different outfits to give each type of girl a choice. For girls who want to dress more elegant that day, the light pink outfit on the far left is perfect. The soft color palate used and modest clothing screams elegance. Girls that want to dress romantic and flirty can go with the magenta dress with the polka dot shirt under as that bow shouts “I’m girly”. Some girls have a more sporty personality and want to dress comfortably so I created an outfit with the green and orange sweater to keep that comfort. For girls that prefer a more grunge look, I created the outfit on the far right so that they can stay in their comfort zone, yet dress appropriately for that day. I know that if I were to pick an outfit out of these choices I would either go for the elegant one because I like to dress modest, or the romantic one for the spirit of the holiday. Which outfit would you choose, and why?
What a completely random Monday it has been for me today. As I entered one of my classes I noticed a girl eating a straight up lime, I thought that was odd. It certainly caught my attention as I don’t think I would be able to handle the sourness. Hey, more power to her and her vitamin C intake, right? To continue with my random streak, I decided to create an outfit around a dinosaur sweatshirt. Childish? Oh, well I am 14. I think that my hipster friend is going to like it though. When I saw the dinosaur sweatshirt I nearly died at the sight of it. I don’t know if this happens to you as well but sometimes there are pieces of clothing that speak to me. It’s almost like they are screaming my name. Yep, there I go again, random Monday. I wish I owned the shoes, they are super adorable. I used purple shorts and green accessories because they are the colors inside of the dinosaur. The glasses remind me of the mineral peacock ore, the mineral is gorgeous and have about the same or extremely similar colors. The reason I chose the raspberry fizz like color for the hat is because most of the colors were already similar enough, so to have the outfit pop a bit more I added an even more vibrant color that can catch your attention from miles away. Even though I am not the type of girl you will catch taking selfies, I decided to add the phone case because it gives an even more random effect to the outfit. This outfit is perfect for the late spring or just hanging out with your friends. If I was a dinosaur I would definitely be a Pterodactyl because if I were to be hunted down by a T-Rex, I’d have a better chance of surviving by taking flight. What kind of dinosaur would you be?
You can’t have a teen fashion blog without The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games book series is my all time favorite! I’m not a fantasy movie kind of girl, I like to be able to imagine the pictures described with words easily. These books do that for me. I can picture a scene in my head and put myself in the middle of it all with ease. Each story is unique, I can never predict what’s going to happen next. I love that for a change the heroine is a teenage girl (Katniss Everdeen). The secondary character Effie Trinket tends to make me laugh. She is upbeat, bossy, prissy and most of the time unaware of what is going around her which I find hilarious. Every time someone is talking about either the books or the movies, I have to enter myself into the conversation and spill everything I know (which I must say is a lot since I have read all the books three times). Most of my quotes and inside jokes among friends come from this series. I love watching the fashion from the Capitol’s people in the movies. The outfits are over the top, weird and original. I read a funny somewhere in the internet that Nicki Minaj and Lady Gaga are what the Capitol people look like in our time. Their makeup is very vibrant and attention grabbing, even the men wear makeup and dye their hair into popping colors. This outfit is a toned down version of what you might find the Capitol people wearing. I used a yellow dress because I thought it was the perfect color to grab someone’s attention. The pleated ruffles on the skirt add that quirky look to the outfit. The necklace has orange, pink, and dark yellow stones which are also colors that grab the viewer’s attention. It is the necklace that ties all the accessories together. The makeup is very bright (as described in the book) and goes along with the colors in the outfit. If I were stuck in Panem, I would be part of district 4 because it is the fishing capitol and I just love the water… and Finnick. What district would you be from and why?
