Style is an amalgamation of what you see, the music you listen to, the magazines you read and what truly influences how you dress and the swagger which you carry yourself with. My inspiration comes from a number of different places, so I decided to make an inspiration board to show you guys how I digest media and fashion into my own personal style.
Here are a few things I especially love from the inspiration board:
Pale Pink Lipstick.
I love the color pink but for the LONGEST time I didn't have a clue as to how to incorporate it into my makeup. Pink eyeshadow is always iffy, I don't really wear blush, however pink lipstick had always been something I wanted to try. So I went to Sephora and got some assistance from a man who had the MOST flawless makeup I had ever seen and bought my first tube of lipstick: Sephora Lip Attitude Glamour Collection: Pink Caress 05 (sheer bubblegum). Check out my first pic wearing the lippy over Winter Break.
Monroque has been named It-Girl in Teen Vogue, Girl of the Month for whowhatwear.com and is notably one of the most stalked individuals during Fashion Weeks all over the world. Shala Monroque holds the post of editor-at-large for Pop Magazine which has placed her cosmopolitan and daring style into the limelight. Her love affair with Rodarte, artistic inspiration and even her Rastafarian hair stylist are some of the most fascinating things she shares with us on her self-titled blog, Shala. Keep your eye on this one. I'm certain she'll be one to please.
I love pomegranates. Between picking out the seeds and attempting not to get pom juice all over your clothing, this is probably the most difficult fruit to eat. However, it's all worth it because the fruit tastes and LOOKS so good. The color of the fruit has driven me to buy several magenta colored tops. I think it's a win-win situation. I get a beautiful colored top that I can comfortably eat my pomegranate seeds in!
I have a tendency to lose a lot of my jewelry, like my Chanel ring I received as a Birthday present from my Aunt (I'm still sick about that one!). So it makes sense to buy trendy, cheap jewelry from places like Forever 21 and H&M. These places are great because you can really make your outfits true to your style for $20 or less. I'm really intrigued by clear lucite baubles, pastel colored jewelry and tons of bangles!
