It's Been quite a while, but I'm back with a new format to how I'll do blog articles here. More Graphics and
pictures to look at in a neat , respectable orientation. Yay? ._. It makes me happy tbh. >-> but focusing on
the topic at hand...
Most of the time we peruse through magazines like Seventeen or Vogue or Nylon without giving much
thoughts on how we could potentially use them to our advantage. Of course, we can't afford some of the
high end clothing e.e (Luis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen *R.I.P.*) or most of the other clothing, but we can
find more affordable replicated designs that create the same looks. Thus enabling you to create a wardroobe
you can be proud of, instead of going to a store and finding you have no idea what you want to get to create
a coordinate. If you don't know what I mean well o.o I'll show you. (I have no idea why I'm using all these
pseudo-emoticons like o.o )
Magazine source for my pictures: Popteen Magazine October Issue
Identify a pattern in the clothing. Colours, footwear, aesthetics, anything. There's literally always a theme.
If you're a person who likes to wear what's "currently in" this step is kinda a must, so you're not out of
the loop when you see everyone all of a sudden wearing over-the-knee socks overnight. In fact, if you
peruse through sites such as Lookbook.nu (not advertising :< i don't even have one) or the likes, you'll
pretty much see a trend for yourself.
I prefer street mix styles over anything in these magazines , because that's where the creative
juices really start to flow in terms of fashion. As opposed to the theme'd clothing. Mixing and
matching is so much better right?
But back on topic:
go through each page, and circle , highlight, sticky note (if you want to re-sell magazines) any style you
like. Take note of the price if you are given the price of the outfit. In my example I circled a pretty light
summer outfit that I thought was cute.
Go online, to stores that are near you and check to see how much of each item from a particular look you like that they
have. Essentially you want to cut down as much time and costs as possible to buy the clothing and know about how
much you need to get an outfit beforehand with this method. In the example, I circled, the price of the get go was about
40 USDs not including any US tax. I did some store searches and found these items, which came out to 42-48 dollars with
7% tax included but not including the shoes since well, i think we all have shoes anyway ._.)
Go to the store. Get the items. Buy matching accessories and voila You have an outfit that is worthy to be worn by you!
