Lace, flowers, and knit.









Light pink Urban Outfitters chiffon floral headpiece, White Forever 21 knit sweater, Pink H&M Lace shorts, Ivory Forever 21 oxfords.



Also it would be so sweet, if you could please help me win the Zine Style Queen contest by faving my photo on Chictopia :).

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm very tactile when it comes to my clothing and I love to mix different textures together.  Here I'm wearing lace shorts, knit sweater, chiffon floral headpiece, sheer tights, and pleather oxfords.  

I have excited news for you lovelies!  As I've said before in a previous post, I'm trying to find a career possibly in fashion, but I wasn't too sure of where to start.  Right now, I'm thinking of working towards becoming a Stylist.  I feel this really shows my creative side and I always enjoy putting together outfits, and why not for others?  So, the lovely CEO of TrendyRose.com, Theresa Rose, has given me the opportunity to create my own Spring Lookbook!  I was so speechless when I heard the news from her.  I'm in the process of putting my ideas together, but the outfit you see here has some things I want to definitely incorporate and see in all the looks I'll be styling, including soft colors of blush, white, tan, and heather gray.  I'm thinking of a romantic and bohemian feel for the photoshoot full of crochet/maxi dresses, floral tights and crowns, and more.  Look out for around April 2011 which will most likely be the date the lookbook will be up and running for you to view! I'm so excited :).

Onto more news, I recently contacted the beautiful Sarah of Sarah Loves Drawing, to collaborate on creating a new outfit icon widget for Inspirafashion on the left sidebar.  And the result below was unbelievably amazing, she did a beautiful job.  I really recommend checking out her artwork, and not only that she is so stylish as well!

Here is a glimpse of her other artwork!  She truly is an inspiring artist.  She's also offering to create an icon widget for your blog as she is trying to gain publicity to work towards being a fashion illustrator.
