Girls!

5 May

I would like to talk for a minute about my new favourite show:

Girls On HBO!

Besides the fact that it’s entertaining, funny, and well written, I love the clothes.

So, let’s talk style, because that’s apparently what I do.

The thing about the look for girls is that it’s so EASY. This is not rocket science dressing, but it just works. Let’s look at the above picture- keep in mind I’m terrible and I’m totally going to refer to these girls by their character names. So sue me and then tell me who plays Miranda in Sex and the City. Seriously, aside from Sarah Jessica Parker, if you said you were more Kristin Davis than Cynthia Nixon, some might get it but it would take a couple of minutes. If I were to say I was more Charlotte than Miranda, you would GET it.

So for reference: left to right the characters here are Jessa, Marnie, Hannah and Shoshana.

Jessa looks awesome, and what is she wearing? Well cut pants with a sheer blouse tucked in. She wears her pants cuffed so you can see her shoes and a couple of bangles. Could I make this outfit? Probably not because I don’t own a pair of pants that I can tuck shirts into. HOWEVER, I could do it with a skirtĀ if I ever find my black American Apparel pencil skirt. Seriously, how does someone lose a skirt?!

Marnie’s look is a super class dress. She’s always super classy. Her accessories are very ladylike and demure, and she just oozes class… ooozes!

Hannah is wearing a dress that she wore in the episode where she…. ah! Find a way to watch it. It’s a super simple woven like, princess bodice and circle skirt combo. So easy, so simple. One necklace. One simple necklace.

Shoshana looks adorable, and in the end all that is is a sweater and a skirt. It’s a SWEATER AND SKIRT! With a belt and a headband.

As you can see, this is nothing that big, so why is this look so hard to replicate?!

I’m going to throw a few more stills in the mix….

Simple tank and jeans, yet it works. I’m not sure how I feel about Jessa’s look though. I mean, it’s adorable, but I feel like it would make me look really, really big. I do love the shoes though…. and Marnie’s shoes too!

I love Jessa’s look in this one. I need to make a drapey blouse like that. It looks so effortless and cool! Hannah’s outfit is very much a sweater and a dress…. who said that before? Oh right, it was me. Such simple perfection.

So tonight, I’m going out briefly (I don’t want to have the grown up flu for my big Confirmation sponsor debut! Which I still don’t know what I’m wearing to. Merde.) and I’m going to pick my clothes based on what the girls girls would wear, what’s easy, comfy and works.

The Carrie Diaries!

27 Mar

After perusing Glamour’s Fashion Blogs like I like to do, I noticed something wonderful:

This is the first outfit for The Carrie Diaries! I am in love with this. I love the red and green together, and especially the sparkle. I wish I had the guts to wear this down the street! It totally fits my cute dress + cardi + belt formula though… hmmm…
