Be Free With Your Style
Hi beautiful friends!
Before I realised that I wanted to save the world and have green super powers, I thought I would grow up to be a fashion designer. When I was younger, I used to spend hours designing the perfect evening gowns that could be worn on the red carpet. As a Visual Studies graduate, being creative through my art work; photography; my words as well as my clothing choices has always been important to me.
A few weeks ago Style GF, a mobi-magazine that focuses on fashion, beauty, bloggers, celebrities and is accessible through your phone, contacted me and asked if I wanted to share some of my style tips. While The Glam Green Girl has always been focused on beauty and lifestyle, I jumped at the opportunity to have some fun with my closet and share what makes fashion so fun for me.
Here’s my “Blog in Style” feature for Issue 17 – you can check it out here.
To elaborate on what I’m was saying as my style tip, my style changes everyday. One day I’ll rock the sporty look, the next day the bohemian look, the next day the glamorous look etc. To me that’s what fashion is about, it’s about playing dress up every day.
To add my own twist to this beautiful dress (I’ve had it for a while, it’s one of those that you can use for almost any occassion) I added a turban ~ those that know me or follow me on instagram know how much I love hats, beanies, turbans, flower crowns etc!
I shopped my own closet to create the different looks that I’ll be featuring soon – green fashion tip: Instead of buying new clothes all the time, shop your friends closet or your parents, I love some of my mom’s cool items and have even claimed one of my dad’s jerseys!
