Hello lovely ones,
How are you all? Well I scraped in with this weeks challenge Celebrity Copy Cat only just! And by just I mean on Friday I left Mildura to go Melbourne for a weekend. At this point I had a list of about 5-7 celebrities who I'd consider a super stylish lady . I had a quick scour through the internet for images of my most favourite ladies when it comes to person styling. The first person I typed in was Solange Knowles. Even though she is my most loved style icon at the moment I couldn't find any photos that I could use (each time I found one I liked I would run to my cupboard to see if I had something I could work with.
Flash forward 2 days in Melbourne with my lovely college girls and by the time I arrived home to Mildura I noticed that a lot of the women taking part in the challenge had said they were done and ready to post. It was 5pm and I still had NOTHING! So I began to sift through blogs when I found some photos from Solange's interview with the Time Out New York magazine HERE.
There are many reasons why I adore her personal style. I love her choice of prints, colours, afro, box braids and her ability to keep changing things up. I can strongly relate to her approach to style being an opportunity to express yourself. Some days I like dressing a little old school, classic and clean and other days I am happy to cruise around in baggy jumpers and beanies. It's about being practical and showcasing a reflection of what is important to me in my life right now and being able to wear items that make me feel beautiful, alive and vibrant. DAMN if only I had a fro. I would never straighten it. Look at how fly she is!
Special thanks to my darling sister Pulu for allowing me to wake her up the afternoon after a sleepless 3 days in Melbourne. She was cold and tired and she still managed to get these shots.
Thanks Theresa Jean xo
What I wore:
All found in my cupboard :) Skirt is old I picked it up at Best and Less 2 years ago I think, shoes are new and probably still on Target shelves as I type and they belong to my sister. I was soooo tempted to go out and buy something new just to make this work but thankfully I had a lot of similar items to the styling of this shoot. My glasses were a birthday gift from my friend Moala but they were a opshop/thrifted find and my lip colour is called Burnt Orange and it's a range where I pick up most of my lip colours from. It's a matt colour and you can pick them up at most chemists for under $5. Hair was left natural like Solange. No real styling or hair products. I just washed it and clipped it back.
|I currently can't get enough of collared blouses. I wear them all the time because it makes me feel a little polished.|
