Monday Inspiration Outfit: Rhino Shower Curtain

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Rhino Shower Curtain teen fashion blog

The purpose of writing this post was to show everyone how we can find inspirations for outfits in everything. Most designers create their clothing according to something they saw or experienced. Most of this teen fashion blogger’s Polyvore outfits are created because I find inspirations on objects or maybe even movies and feel those ideas would be perfect in an outfit. I look for an object that I like, then I turn it into an outfit.

This inspiration Monday I decided to use this rhino shower curtain. Last year my mom and I decided we needed to do some redecorating in the bathroom before our guests came over to spend Christmas with us. Our bathroom at the time was very bland and boring, plus the curtains and towels were sort of old. We started looking for shower curtains because we think of the shower curtain as the outfit in the bathroom. Plus it would be easier to gather towels and other bathroom accessories knowing the color palette we would be using. Anyways, we were looking for shower curtains and my mom found this rhino shower curtain. We didn’t use it for our bathroom but I did fall in love with the colors used. Then an idea struck me, how cool would it be to create an outfit using this as the inspiration piece. I got to work instantly and created this outfit on Polyvore. There are millions of inspirations out there. What was the last thing that inspired you?

Dressed in her Capitol’s Best

Dressed in her Capitol’s Best by teen fashion blog featuring Kate Spade
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?
