Steal her Style Ariana Grande pt. 2

Last summer I was introduced to a darling little site called ‘Steal her Style.’  It’s pretty much what’d you’d expect, so there’s no need to explain.  But it’s really fun to look at when you’re crushing on a celebrities wardrobe.

That’s when Ariana Grande comes in.  While she also has some ridiculously crazy outfits, which celebrities don’t?  But most of the time her clothes are actually quite cute.  So, I tried to pick out some pictures you can actually try to recreate.  Not her footy pajamas ( which you should honestly never wear out the house), and other things like that.

All photos came from Steal her Style.  I don’t own any of the pictures above or below.

Ariana has somewhat lost the nerdy style she had last summer, but she’s a LOT more famous now, so it make sense.  I really do love the dress, which seems just a teeny weeny bit geeky, and the simplicity, yet creativeness of this outfit.

Usually I’ve been told to never wear all black.  I do it anyway, but usually I add colorful jewelry to tone it down.  Or is it up?  Back to the point, I didn’t think it was possible to look girly in all black, but apparently it is.

Instead of nerdy, I think Ariana Grande has a more vintage/retro style going on.  In black and white this whole thing seems to be happening in the poodle skirt time period. And if you know even the slightest things about me, you’d know I love and cannot resist polka dots.  So that pretty much explains just about everything.

Once again, more nostalgia for me.  I’ve always loved platform boots, but I would have never thought of wearing it with a sweater.  Let alone a sweater dress.  But I guess that’s Ariana Grande for you.  She must think pants are over-rated.

This shirt is perfect for me.  If you ask anyone I know, you’d find out that I almost never stop talking.  But if  had to give out 2nd place to nything in the outfit, it would have to be the bag.  I’d like it more in a darker pink color, instead of the almost cream, but overall it’s a really nice bag which would fit all the many things I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO CARRY AROUND;)

Lessons from Lauren: How to Shop (Part 2)

Chere Readers,

I found the Lauren Conrad book my mother happened to buy a long time ago and thought I should do something on my blog with it.  I wanted it to be fairly simple and easy, and last for at least a week.  This actually lasted for months because I said I would continue it, but that never actually happened until now.  Here’s the first lesson.  What I happened to be doing is summing up the tips taught in this book and posting it here.

 

Disclaimer:  I take no credit for the lessons taught in this series.  All of these tips and tricks came from Lauren Conrad in Lauren Conrad Style.


Have a Plan

  • What you’re looking for
  • Where to look
  • What to wear when you shop

 

What to Wear

  • Comfy shoes
  • Skirt or dress (no jeans)
  • Tank top layer

  1. Walk around the store
  2. Grab what caught your eye (instinct)

The Audrey Hepburn Guide to Fashion (Part 1)

I already told those of you who read my first guide to fashion (Marilyn Monroe) what this was, and how I do it. Basically I take a picture of a fashion icon, and her clothes, then write a tip based on what she’s wearing.  In first person point of view of course.  This series will continue as long as I can think of tips.  Because my series posts were very popular.  But out of the three I’ve done(including this one) I’ve finished 2!  Technically that’s an F!  66%!  Whoops!  If you want me to do a guide to fashion from someone else, let me know in the comments please!

Tip: (imagine this in a classy accent)

If a lady must travel to the beach it is not an excuse to dress anything less than fabulous.  There are cover-ups and sunglasses.  Hats and sunglasses.  Waterproof makeup and beach bags.  Dramatic makeup is always necessary, and the beach is not an exception.  I personally recommend dark eyelashes with lighter summer colors for the warmer months.  And of course, a floppy hat.  Those are always unavoidable at the coast.

How did I do?  Want any more guides to fashion?  Tell me in the comments!  You know you want to…

The Marilyn Monroe Guide to Fashion (Part 3)

Chere Readers,

I already told those of you who read my other Marilyn Monroe Guide to Fashion what this was.  But I have not done this in a while, and have gained quite a few followers since then. Basically I take a picture of Marilyn Monroe, and her clothes, and write a tip based on what she’s wearing.  In first person point of view of course.  This series will continue as long as I can think of tips.  Because my series posts were very popular.  But out of the three I’ve done(including this one) I’ve only finished 1!  Whoops!

Tip: (imagine in a classy accent)

A lady must always accessorize when joining her lady or gentleman friends for a night in the town.  Go classy or go home.  Silver is the best color to add, but if you have to, go with gold.  And jewelry is not always the best way to add some flair to an outfit.  Belts, and fur wraps in the color of your choosing are always divine.  Don’t forget your fancy updo.  It’s essential in producing glamour.  Tight curls, waves, and anything vintage Hollywood starlet are just fine.

How did I do?  Have any other fashion icons you want guides to?  Tell me in the comments!

Maximum Infinity! The Easiest DIY Infinity Scarf Known to Mankind

Dear Readers,

Infinity scarves have been a big trend for  while, yet I have still found a way to avoid buying one.  They’re the easiest way to accessorize and still look good without putting much thought into it.  Especially in middle school when only a select few care about their clothes, (me).  But there are others, and besides big bow headbands, and dramatic hair clips, infinity scarves are the next best accessory.  And instead of spending big bucks on these new scarves, you can use the ones you already have.  I got the idea from a magazine for tween girls I glanced at.  And I’m a pretty frugal/meager person, so I love this solution.  All you need is a normal scarf, and your hands.  Tie the ends of the scarf together, make sure it’s at the very end(closest to the edge as possible) for maximum infinity.  The best part is, you can totally change up the look by making undoing the knot, and tying it in a different way.  Excuse my younger sister’s modeling, she’s not very enthusiastic about my blog:( Oh well…  Enjoy!

A DIY of Sorts: Be a Fashion Designer Today

Chere Reader,

I get a lot of my inspiration from InStyle in terms of post ideas.  So I was flipping through this year’s April issue, yes, they are quite ahead of the game, when I came across a bunch of fashion and beauty websites and apps. From picking makeup colors for you, to redoing the color scheme of your whole room through your phone. these apps sure were interesting. But the most interesting thing to me was the design a dress website.

You answer a series of questions about your appearance, and the website automatically picks a color palette for you.  From there you get complete control.  Have fun filling in the silhouette, fabrics, and colors to design yourself an AMAZING piece.  But I’m not going to send you off into the dark.  I’m going to be designing a dress right here with you.  Your welcome! *BOW BOW*

My Dress

Design A Dress

1.  Select your hair color, eye color, and skin color to begin.

2.  After filling in all that good stuff, pick your silhouette.  I’m going for something simple, summery, and fun.  Hover over each design to see some details about each dress, and then select your silhouette and continue to the design room.

3.  Pick your fabrics, and design details.  The only downside is seeing the cost.  Awww…

4.  Continue to the fitting room.  I don’t know my dress size, all my dresses come in S/M/L.  So I’m just picking the smallest one, due to being in middle school and all…

5.  Now is time for exact measurements.  Once again I really don’t know.

6.  Check out and you’re re done!  Have fun designing.  Comment if you at least try this website, due to the cost, I’m not expecting any purchases.

Au Revoir,

Create Your Own Converse:

Chere Readers,

My favorite sneaker brand is probably Converse.  Especially the high tops.  They always have really original designs.  (And no, I don’t mean the solid color shoes).  But for those of you who feel these shoes aren’t creative enough, there is the Create Your Own Converse, which gives you total control over the whole word.  MWAHHAHAHAAA!  OK, actually just total control over your shoe, and the final product.

But I have taken the hard work out of this for you, and designed three shoes.  I tried to do some different styles, but bear with me, I can be a girly girl.

Converse 1

This first one is one of the girlier shoes I designed.  There’s a mustache and lip print, with hints of pink.  I tried to make this less girly and add lots of dark colors, hence all the black.  This might be my favorite shoe.

Converse 2

I am not kidding when I say I have a shirt with this EXACT pattern.  So this shoe was kind of based off of what I wear with the shirt.  I usually try to add some color, the pink, to make it more fun.*

Converse 3

This last one is both girly, and boyish.  There’s lots of dark colors, blacks, and greys.  But there’s also the purple tongue and stripe on the back.  So I think you could dress it down or dress it up with a pair of jeans and a shirt, or a cute skirt and a shirt. *

Have fun creating!

* Excuse the YOURID, you can put a 10 character word there.
