So I thought that I'd give the whole "chambray shirt" trend a try. Yes, I'm a little late on this bandwagon. Don't mind me :)
Although I was only four when Clueless came out, I loved the movie, the tv show, and the endless supply of plaid. I was probably too young to really rock the whole grunge look in the 90's, but it's never too late. I'd like to think this outfit is something that Tai Frasier would wear now ;)
I confess: out of the 40+ heels that I have and wear frequently (yes, I am attending Shoe Hoarders Anonymous) these are the single. most. painful. pair. I. own. I wanted to amputate my feet with a butter knife the first day I wore them. I'm getting a charlie horse just looking at these pictures. But they're so gorgeous, I can't give them up.
The things we do for beauty, right?
These colors take me back to the many nights I spent in a black and gold marching band uniform on a football field. I think high school brainwashed me.
As you can see, my hair was a big mess of curls today. I embraced the hugeness though. It's a welcome change after more than a month of rocking waist-length braids. Anddd a big shout-out to my little bro-ski for taking my pictures today! He was a trooper, even when I called him back outside to take a picture of my shoes for the eighth time :)
I love my oxford heels, especially combined with a mint button-up and a pleated skirt. I feel like this outfit would be worn by a North-Eastern prep-school girl.
In other news, after weeks of studying and practice tests, I took my NCLEX exam and passed! I'm now a registered nurse! Yay me!
Now presenting.....the finale to my Star Wars-inspired series! If you'd like to the see other characters, click this link.
Darth Vader is perhaps the most infamous villain in movie history. He's got a cool cape, a tough, cool exterior, and he also sounds curiously like Mufasa with a respiratory disorder.
I'm a born and bred 90's kid which means I was OBSESSED with the Spice Girls! I collected the Spice Girls lollipops and the stickers (is it just nostalgia, or were those the best lollipops ever?). I used to know all of the dances. I watched Spice World over and over (time to bust out ye olde VHS again!).
I loved the Spice Girls' style. There was my personal fave Scary Spice, with her amazing conical/curly hair and her love affair with animal prints. Ginger's iconic flag dress. Baby's slip dress and platform shoes. Sporty's track pants and Posh's LBD. In honor of their [amazing] performance at the closing ceremony of the olympics, I've presented to you a few things inspired by my childhood icons.
Were you as big a fan of the Spice Girls as I was? Who was your favorite?
P.S. Please share this post if you liked it!
This outfit was inspired by one of my favorite comic book superheroines, Zatanna. I've always loved her tough but fun personality, not to mention the thought that a magician/showgirl could also have real magical ability. She does magic by saying words backwards. How freaking awesome is that? This outfit is a more modern day, less costume-y, more ME version of her outfit (I'm not cos-playing here), but I think it captures the essence of Zatanna.
This British singer makes blonde look really good. I'm completely envious. Not enough to dip my own tresses in bleach, but still. Rita Ora touts Gwen Stefani, Beyonce, and Aaliyah as her biggest inspiration and it shows. She looks amazing!
