hellolisa 's Thoughts:

For quite some time, my style consisted of stacking jelly bracelets to my elbows, dirty Chuck Taylors and cheap graphic tees. My dream to become a fashion designer really took my peers by surprise as they sneered at the holes in my jeans and the lanky-legged doodles in place of algebra equations. Throughout my bracelet stacking years in high school, I was placed in advanced English classes, then proceeded through college with cleaner shoes, fun printed dresses and higher than average grades on my writing assignments. Becoming a fashion designer fizzled into a desire to work for a glossy publication of some sort, but when it came time to apply for entrance into the “real world,” I didn’t have much else to show besides that beautiful diploma.

I was encouraged to carve out a piece of the internet, in the form of a blog, for myself to practice and showcase what I can do with words. And with words, I want to showcase me and my love for clothing and photography. There are a few things that can hold my interest for long, but I can flip through the same clothing catalogs and fashion magazines for months if the styling and photography is right.

As for my taste in fashion currently, I have put my jelly bracelets away for another day. I can‘t even pin-point what my style is now. I do know that I enjoy shaking things up by adding a hint of contrast to my looks, like ethereal with edgy, a bright color with darks, slouchy with structured. It’s no lie that I am a lazy dresser still with cheap t-shirt tendencies, but I can easily dress up a ratty tee with a high-waisted skirt, printed tights, light scarf and suede boots and go out on a quirky date. Style to me is experimenting with pieces until you are able create a look you’d love to wear—and wear confidently! Style is creating a sense of individuality and inspiring while still being inspired.

The Willa studded mary janes are perfect to darling-up yesterday’s t-shirt today without taking away from your tough girl side!
