Bowling Shirt: Vintage Skirt: love 21(forever 21) Shoes: DSW Bag: market in Ecuador Earrings: thrift
And so we meet the last day of the skirt challenge. I'm excited. I have to say I'm glad I took the challenge, it made me really think about the skirts in my wardrobe and how to style them, but I'm also glad it's over. Now I can post pants and dresses!! Get ready. Anyway I had a hard time thinking of an icon/designer look I wanted to copy. But this morning when I woke up, at a ridiculously early hour, I suddenly had it, Enid from Ghost World! I've loved the movie Ghost World since I first watched it in middle school and have even read one of the comic the story is based on. While watching it I totally fell in love with Enid. Not only is she a busty four-eyes but she's funny, sarcastic and had a great sense of style. I was totally in love with everything Enid especially her clothes and room decor. When it comes to style icons most of mine have pretty edgy/funky style. I'd say my style is classic with a little bit of funk, so I always look to celebrities and other style icons with funky/edgier taste to get ideas on how to incorporate their look into mine. I think Enid's look has three basic qualities: Vintage, color and pattern. Her style is an eclectic mix of 70's punk and 60's mod that I'm just in love with and is reasonably on trend. Peter pan collars, plaid, leather jackets, skinny jeans, funky t-shirts, docs and mod inspired clothing are all things you can pick up in almost any retail or thrift store right now.
