Style Inspiration

The way I dress and the inspiration I take from others helps me to feel good about myself. Of course, many say that you don’t need to worry about your appearance – feeling good comes from within. That’s very true, but fashion to me, isn’t as serious as that. It makes me feel good not because I don’t feel good about myself, but because it allows me to be creative. When I buy clothes, I buy them with the excitement of styling them with different things in my wardrobe.

Fashion and style can be classed as two very different things. On the one hand, fashion can be regarded as something that is current, and something that is constantly evolving. While style is timeless, it is one’s personal preference of dress. When it comes to style, you can use previous fashion trends to create your own individual look, or you can simply favour specific trends – may that be from different eras or the same era.

I do not follow fashion trends and throw away outdated trends. Instead, I use fashion trends to build my own type of style. I look at characters from TV shows, celebrities, friends, family members, strangers whom I have never met, to gain inspiration for my own style. Of course, I do this without realising at times, or without intention. In other words, I love clothes. The one thing I notice before anything else, is what someone is wearing. Not in a judgemental way, but rather an admiring way.

When I watch Riverdale for example, I am constantly obsessed with the style of the characters. In particular, I love the style of both Veronica Lodge and Cheryl Blossom. The cute mini skirts, collared blouses, polished hairstyles all mirror what I love when it comes to style. Both two different styles, but altogether the same, Veronica and Cheryl are my go-to gals when I need some inspiration. Here’s a link to a post on Pinterest with the style of Veronica Lodge.

Another fictional character that I love for her style is Sabrina from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. You may have read about this before on my previous post The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Mini Review , but I do love her style. It’s just everything I would have wanted to wear as a young girl. Even now, in my twenties, I take style inspiration from her. The cute dresses layered with light jumpers and tops, all paired with a simple pendant necklace. Even The Weird Sisters have amazing style too – if you ever wanted to dress like a chic witch, take inspiration from them! Here’s a link to a series of pins from Pinterest!

Finally, another person that consistently inspires the way I dress, is the lovely Holly Willoughby. Every outfit she wears on This Morning, and I’m a Celebrity is just sheer style perfection. In my opinion anyway! I just love how she dresses. She looks so amazing as well. I literally want to be her sometimes. Again, the mini skirt/blouse ensemble is completely up my street. At this time of year, my favourite thing to wear is a cute mini skirt with tights, a light jumper, and boots. My favourite shop to buy clothes from has to be Miss Selfridge. I just love everything from there. If I could only shop in one place for clothes, Miss Selfridge would be my choice every single time. I think that everything they sell just seems to be exactly what I like to wear. From their evening and partywear, all the way to their casual clothes.

Two words…STYLE GOALS. Holly just kills everything she wears. The hair, the clothes, everything. She is just the ultimate babe. Both photos were found here at Pinterest – and look like they were from her own Instagram page – as she uploads every outfit she wears, which is just amazing.

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Mini Review

Magic, the Supernatural, Witches, Warlocks, Mystery and Horror – expect all of this and more..

With Halloween on the way as the show launched on 26th October, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina couldn’t have been more perfectly timed. When it was announced that Netflix would bring out this new series, I was so excited. Watching Sabrina the Teenage Witch as a young girl, I was ready for the Netflix re-boot.

One thing I noticed about watching Sabrina, was that her outfits were complete goals! I love the way she has been styled and it fits perfectly for her role. Everything she wears gives me inspiration… the cute jumpers layered with dresses, more cute jumpers, and all worn with a gold necklace of some sort. I wonder if this is an important necklace? And to top it all off, that hairstyle makes me want to get my hair cut – even though I know that I will probably end up looking no way near as cool. Even though this is moving away from the point of this post, here’s a link to a beautiful dress – which, paired with a cute jumper, has complete Sabrina vibes.

The series begins by introducing us to Sabrina Spellman and her hometown of Greendale, and yes, the series also makes many references to Riverdale! After her parents died, for reasons we are not made completely sure of, Sabrina was taken in by her two aunties Hilda and Zelda. They brought her up to be the young half-witch that she is, while having to deal with guiding Sabrina down the right path.

We are also introduced to the main dilemma that Sabrina has: on the night of her Dark Baptism, she must choose between the mortal world with Harvey and her friends, or the witch world. Throughout each episode, Sabrina is faced with difficult challenges and discovers horrific truths and traditions of the church of night (the church for all witches). As a young sixteen year old, she does a very good job! Watching the series will definitely make you want to become a witch yourself, and you’ll be forever wishing that you secretly were!

The Academy that Sabrina has to attend is also pretty cool, but we do not see much happening here in terms of her classes – we do however, see her perform countless amounts of spells and dark magic outside of the Academy. The one thing that we have yet to see pan out is her so-called friendship with her teacher – who is apparently helping to protect Sabrina. Who knows what will happen in series two, but I do know that I am definitely excited for it, and I hope that it will be coming out very soon.

Many people have been disappointed by the new series, as it is completely different to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. However, I LOVE it! I love how dark it is – and not to mention how feminist the series is. Not only this, but the series has been based upon the Archie Comics, meaning that it is supposed to be dark and a little bit more edgy. Filled with fierce, badass women, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a must watch. 

I will be writing more on the series soon! So keep updated by following my twitter @_favethingsblog – also, let me know what you think about The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina in the comments below! Thanks for reading xo
