Monday Inspiration Outfit: Zebra Plate

Monday Inspiration Outfit: Zebra Plate teen fashion blog
Time flies when you are having fun…NOT! Finally back to school today after two weeks of recess due to a winter storm and winter break. I have to admit it felt good to be able to go back to school today and see my friends. What is not cool is the teachers piling on the homework to try and catch us up due to all the days missed. Luckily I anticipated the teachers’ frenzy and used the days that I was out of school to get ahead with my blog posts. Yay! This is my 50th post in a row and I didn’t want to miss it. One of my goals when I started the blog was to write sixty days in a row. Ten more days and I should be able to accomplish it.
My inspiration for this outfit was this cute zebra plate my mom pinned to one of her decoration boards. I liked the shades of blue used and the modern overall feeling of the plate. As I have mentioned before inspiration can come to you from pretty much anywhere, even a plate. 🙂 I tried to use different shades of blue to capture the hues of the plate. I felt I needed to work with a zebra pattern so I used a more modern version of the pattern with the top. My vision of modern also included a mix of styles in the outfit, grunge, preppy, modern and punk. Sometimes eclectic outfits like this one turn out  to be even more special because they are extremely unusual and unique.

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?
