A Belt Goes A Long Way…

Posted in fashion, style by kayemlin on August 1, 2010

I always want to mix my style up and make it a little more unique. To do that, I emphasize on accessories! I think jewelry does a lot for an outfit- jewelry just perks it up and make the outfit look that much nicer! Belts also have a nice effect to an outfit. I found some old pictures of my vintage leopard belt that I used to make my black outfit pop out.

I wear leggings all the time, and a top that just covers my bum. On this occasion, I mixed my belt in to make it look a little more dressy.

Blair Waldorf Style- NYC Chic- Tights!

Posted in Blair Waldorf, fashion, Gossip Girl, Hair, style by kayemlin on July 22, 2010

I dressed up as Blair Waldorf one day for a party and realized that the secret to her school girl outfits from season 1 and 2 were tights! Colorful tights! ( And ofcourse the headband!) Blair also wears the blazer as part of her highschool uniform, but she always mixes and matches her outfits.

This is my closest attempt to Blair’s style. Blair always looks reserved and appropriate, but her style has a sassy, feminine touch.  Her school uniforms are a bit edgy and always remain unique from the rest. This was my closest attempt at Blair’s style. Her fashion is not too difficult to mimic.

I bought the blazer, the white shirt underneath and the black shorts from H &M- all at a reasonable price. The tie is from a street market in DC for $5 and my red tights were from TJ Maxx. TJ Maxx honestly has the best tights – they don’t rip easily and are thicker than the others I’ve come across. The headband was from Forever 21 for $5.50.
