How To: Make Use of Your Magazines, Create your Personal Wardrobe

header


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


 


First:


                      


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.


 


P.S.:


                    


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:


 


Secondly:


 



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.


 


 


Third:



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 ._.)


 


Final Step:


 


Go to the store. Get the items. Buy matching accessories and voila  You have an outfit that is worthy to be worn by you!



End.
