New Year, Notable Outfit

With Christmas Eve tomorrow night, that means New Years is just around the corner. With New Years just around the corner, that means parties. With parties, that means a great outfit. Now, personally, I don't have any parties to go to on New Years Eve, at least not one that I could wear these smashing outfits to. However, I felt the great need to pretend I live in the city, have a huge and fun party to go to, and have a lot of money. This is what I came up with, and oh how I wish my mind games were true.

As for me, I probably can't even afford a clutch on here, no matter how pretty. So I've also put together a set of more realistic outfits. I do quite enjoy these as well. Might have to have my own New Years party.. now seriously considering it...

Current Inspiration: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson has been an inpiration to my outfits for quite some time now. Though her style is not extremely daring, her shape is rather similar to mine and proves to be an amazing muse when it comes to getting dressed in the morning; for school and most casual events that is.
Because her outfits consist of mostly jeans, she helps me find new ways of making a pair of jeans into something more. This way, I don't have the same look everyday at school, though I am wearing the same bottoms.

Her ensembles are forever changing and I always look forward to seeing her styles in magazines or on tv. I love the way she layers some of her clothes and put pieces together that I never would have thought of doing. This girl knows how to get dressed and it's no wonder why so many find her to be a brilliant fashion inspiration.

Some of my favorite looks:

Tights, tights, a beautiful sight

Tights have made a huge comeback into the women’s fashion world for the fall of 2007.
When you think of tights, most girls will wonder back to their days in elementary school. Your mother would dress you in a frilly dress and tights of all kinds; this ensemble was often paired with a pair of Mary-Jane’s or saddle shoes. If I recall correctly, I had a pair of tights for almost every color of the rainbow: blue, red, green, purple, white, and black.

Too bad, I am a little taller than I was at age six; those tights no longer fit me. Runway shows such as Nicole Miller and Chanel are showing that tights are uber hot for this fall season.

“Sadly” replacing the footless tights and leggings in the fashion industry, tights are not only versatile, but also come in a great variety of styles. Opaque, sheer, and patterned are most popular. Scared to try a new trend? Try a pair of plain black tights, opaque or sheer. They are easy to match and look classic.

For the more daring, however, other options include a pair of colored opaque tights. For this style, try you primary colors: red, yellow, and blue. Patterns on tights create a unique, funky look that adds to any outfit.

I love how these tights add a splash of color!

Clueless on where to find this fabulous trend? Check out your local stores like Target and Wal-Mart. You will be sure to find your basics there for a cheap price. If you are looking for colored or patterned tights, try Urban Outfitters or American Apparel for a great selection.

Considering the weather is changing to winter, do not just pack up your summer apparel. To winterize you favorite summer pieces wear tights under dresses, tunics, skirts, and even shorts. Because they are so versatile, and remain so, tights are a new staple item for everyone’s wardrobe.

So, if you are tightless at the moment, I suggest you get yourself a nice pair of tights, because they are definitely worth every penny spent!

Lovely Lily

I've known about Lily Allen for a long time now, but I never really gave her a chance. I dowloaded some of her songs the other day, and I must admit, I love her music! Not only that, but her style is one of a kind. Lily rocks and knows it for sure. She's pretty much the epitome of cool in my book, and though I probably wouldn't wear most of her ensambles like she does, it doesn't mean I can't recieve loads of inspiration and get a pair of those fabulous gold earrings she always wears.

Get her style!

Start off with accessories: DIY

This is a bracelet that I made a couple of days ago. It was super easy to make. I just wish the bangle was like $2 instead of $4.50 so I could just make a ton, but whatever.

What you need:
-a bangle
-stickers or rub-on words (Michaels)
-a popsicle stick
-clear nail polish

1. choose a bangle in any color. (white works the best because then you can see the words)

2. either stick the letters right onto the bracelet or use the popsicle stick to place the rub-on's on the bangle.

3. Use a clear nail polish to coat the bracelet.

4. Let it dry and you're done!

This is super super easy to make and each one you make can look different.
