Do you want to know what I don’t understand? Blue is a color that can represent sadness ( I feel blue), I don’t understand why they used that color for feeling sad because there are a lot of people who like this color. I have a lot of friends and family whose favorite colors are blue, or at least branched to blue in a way, such as teal. I have to admit I like the color a lot, if you were to look into my closet you would find a lot of blue shirts and blouses. I love the color blue because it goes with so many colors, why do you think people wear blue jeans all the time?
I was looking for the next outfit to take a picture of and I kept thinking to myself that I needed to be creative. It took me a while to finally realize to put two different patterns but the same color. I used a dark blue and black striped shirt and a checkered dress for the outfit. Yes, I did say dress. If you have an old strapless dress that does not fit length wise, get creative and turn it into a skirt. All you need to do is role the top half of the dress down to your waist, but make sure it’s not all bulged at the bottom. I also used these light blue shoes, they almost look purple. I thought this outfit was great because it’s fun and interesting to look at. It’s something different that many people don’t tend to think about. Honestly, not many people would think to put blue on blue on blue. The accessories are simple because there is already so much going on in the outfit. Just a simple silver chain necklace and studs will do.
I wanted to take a second to talk about the photo shoot. We decided to take it at an airport near the house where they have a lot of smaller planes. When we went there, this very kind man allowed us to take pictures by one of the planes. He was so nice and helpful! I didn’t think we were going to be able to get in and do it, but he let me pose beside the plane. He even let me get into it and try on the headsets. Not the ideal accessory for the outfit, but still lots of fun to wear. I was so overwhelmed with happiness that I could not stop smiling or laughing, which was good for the photos. I was so interested in the plane and I could not believe I was actually there posing next to and inside the plane. I was kind of hoping a little that he was going to offer me a quick plane ride, but that was getting my hopes way to high.
Today I created another outfit using one of the trends found on the catwalks of Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2014. One of the main patterns found among the clothing was plaid. As I have stated before I thought that Tommy Hilfiger did the best using the plaid pattern. The way he styled the clothing was just amazing and I loved every piece he put out there. I would definitely not mind wearing his pieces! I also decided to use leather in the outfit as well, the leather is found in the vest over the plaid long sleeve shirt. I made sure to use black, red, white, and blue in the outfit because they were the main colors found among the trends.
This outfit is very unusual and it has a grunge look. I decided to add the leather vest on top of the plaid shirt because it added a cool effect to the outfit. I used a rose cameo on top of the vest because it goes with the color scheme and I have been wanting to work with a cameo for a while. All of the other accessories are black as well. The shoes and purse are leathery like to go along with the vest. I decided to go with the blue and plaid gloves because it added an unexpected twist to the outfit. Who doesn’t like a surprise?
I had a lot of fun with this outfit because I decided to play around with the color of the year. This year’s color of the year is Radiant Orchid. I decided to find an outfit using the color so I could kill two birds with one stone by telling you an interesting fact (what the color of the year is) and by giving you a nice Fab Fifty Friday outfit. I also decided to play with one of the trends from Fashion Week, stripes!
This week I decided to make an outfit that would be perfect for both spring and summer and totally appropriate for a teen. I found this dress and thought that it was super pretty. I don’t know why, but I have this weird thing for high low dresses. Anyways, when I found the dress I thought that it would be perfect to use the radiant orchid on, so I made sure to make the accessories that color. I decided that I wanted to use a hat because the outfit would have looked plain without it. Another weird thing I like are fedoras, the thing is that when I try to wear one it doesn’t look good on me because it doesn’t go along with my face shape. I have been looking at this shoe for a long time now, I just love the little strap that wraps around the ankle!
A few weeks ago I went to a birthday party for one of my friends. It was really fun because my whole group of friends was there and we just all got to hang out. Also my friend who was throwing the party goes to a different school so it was nice to see her again. The first part of the party was spent watching Four Weddings as we waited for the rest of the guests to arrive. Her mom had baked some chocolate mint cupcakes for the party and they were amazing. She also had a lot of snacks to keep us satisfied, and I must say that I was very satisfied. My favorite part of the party would have to be being able to spend time with all of my friends, I believe that night was needed because high school has split us up a bit.
For this outfit I made sure to keep it very simple because it was somebody else’s birthday, meaning all the attention is meant to be on the birthday girl. I used a blue, black, and white striped shirt with a dark green button up shirt on top. I needed to put a top layer because it was cold outside at the time. I used a long chain necklace with a beetle on it because the shirt was very simple and nothing was really going on in it. The blue and gold necklace added some fun to the look. I used gray oxfords because it was unexpected for that outfit. The outfit was very comfortable so I had no troubles with it at the party. I like to try and stay stylish yet comfy when I go to a party, how do you dress for a party?
Fashion Week recently ended, so as a teen fashion blogger I feel I have to share the trends that came about among the designers. I looked for many things that might have been popular among all the collections shown. Today I’m going to talk about the three main categories that stood out to me. These categories are colors, patterns, and the main fabrics that they used.
This year’s fall colors are black, gray, white, red, and navy blue. The main color that was used among the designers was black. I made sure to include one example of each color at the top. I also wrote down the designers that created that certain outfit so that if you wanted to, you could go ahead and take a look at what else they made. I loved these colors and I believe that these outfits in those colors are just amazing.
As for patterns, this Fashion Week I noticed a lot of plaid, among the collections. Tommy Hilfiger to me honestly did the best with plaid. I’m not usually into wearing sporty clothing, but I could make an exception for his line. All of his clothes were to die for. I also noticed a few different floral patterns, I thought that was pretty interesting for a fall collection. There were many different collections that had polka dots or stripes in them. Leopard print was pretty big among the clothing as well, I loved this dress by Badgley Mischka that’s at the top. Between the slit in the front and the leopard pattern, it was a fun dress yet elegant at the same time.
As for the fabrics, I’m really glad I have a good amount of faux leather clothing in my closet because I’m going to need it for the fall. It felt like there was leather in every show, it was a leather invasion! Fur was really big as well, there were all sorts of colors and prints on the catwalk which was really cool to see. I felt like Betsy Johnson did the best with the colored fur, the colors were so weird yet cool at the same time. Fur accessories were very big too, I can’t tell you all the times that I saw a model carrying around a fur purse. Shiny fabrics and metallic fabrics were really popular as well among the designers. Sheer was really big as well, I saw multiple dresses, skirts, and shirts that had sheer and they looked lovely. I’m honestly a fan of the sheer fabric, I think that as long as you have a tank top under it can add a cool look. Plus a lot of sheer clothing flows well and I like that.
Even though this gets a little out of the categories, I wanted to make sure that I mentioned that I saw a lot of the models wearing crop tops. They were styling them in all sorts of cool ways. There were models that wore crop tops under a nice sheer shirt, some wore them over shirts, under blazers, under shirts that have a lot of cut outs in them, and much more ways. I found it interesting to see how the designers styled the crop tops in weird ways that I have not seen before. I know that I’m not very comfortable with crop tops cause I’m not big on showing skin, yet I am open to try the different ways to use one.
