Modern and Glamorous!
As much as I love to say I prefer the simple things in life I secretly loving adding a bit of glam to everything I wear and do. It wouldn’t be my taste if there was not at least one thing unconventional about how I approach things. I consider myself a classic girl with a glamorous twist. This week’s Top 10 will highlight that as well.
01: Extra Petite
Who would have thought a neon Gap sweater and a sequin pencil skirt would look so dayum perfect together?! This is what I consider the ultimate classic look with a bit of rockstar glam. You don’t get any more conventional than a pencil skirt. However, the edge effect was exemplified when she found this Zara skirt sequinized (yeah, I made that up). This would be an AWESOME outfit to wear to a symphony on Saturday night, an engagement party, or to a fashion show. She doesn’t over do it with the accessories. She pairs this outfit with a classic Chanel bag and basic black pumps. This looks says, “I’m demure yet unpredictable.”
Jen is a fuckin’ thrift rockstar. Everyone knows it. She is a true student of 90’s grunge. She does the look right, but always has an edge of feminine flair. I heart this girl.
03: From Me To You
I’m not going to lie. I have stopped following Jessica Quirk’s blog. Why? Her clothes were getting so mundane. Nothing was special about them. She wasn’t doing anything new with her wardrobe and she was getting all extra sponsored out. Yes, I am aware that she has dropped her sponsors’, however the clothes she’s been sporting have been lackluster. That’s until I came to the picture above. Jessica is a contributor to “I Spy DIY Style” and was featured in the book. I guess all the bloggers in the book had their photos taken by the lovely Jamie of From Me to You. If Jessica starting bringing it just like this… she may make me a follower again.
04: Fast Food & Fast Fashion
You know what? She has a permanent spot on our Top 10 list. She is on point EVERY SINGLE WEEK! If you are not following Elle by now you really need to make that move.
I fancy myself as a faux sailor. I don’t know anything about boats, sailing, or the simple science of swimming, but I love to pretend!
05: Neon Blush
I love my body, especially my legs, but sometime I wish I had pencil legs so I could rock shorts just like this. This look proves that simple goes a long way. She adds a bit flavor to a basic outfit through her shoes and accessories.
06: The Brooklyn Blonde
Helena means torch in Greek. She really lights up the streets in this look. J.Crew has really been stepping up their game recently. This company went from ho-hum to Oh! My! The sheer shirt, distressed jeans, and color blocked heels make for a fun yet easy going look. She adds more drama with her statement necklace. Ladies, this is how you do simple yet glamorous.
Betty does it right here. If I was going to a concert this is what I would wear. She keeps it casual in an oversized dark grey sweater and black jeans, and a set of heels that makes me want to trip her when she’s not paying attention.
08: Wendy’s Lookbook
Look who I found! Ms. Wendy! I know she’s been M.I.A from the list for a little bit, but she has come back strong! Wendy is the EPITOME of composing modern and glamorous together in an effective manner. This look works because she effectively works strips and polka dots together by using a basic color scheme of black and white. She correctly chooses short white shorts and nude heels to elongate the legs. She has a bit of fun with her accessories with the spiked bracelet. All hail Miss Nguyen!
So I guess is don’t like EVERYTHING simple. =)
Which look is your favorite for the week?
