Building outfits… with a bit of inspiration
I love outfit-making. Not because I want to be super-stylish, ahead-of-the-trends cool, but because it’s an art. I enjoy colorizing and accessorizing, and breaking all the “rules” that many people dress by. After all, dressing is supposed to be fun. Plus, if you can get creative with your wardrobe, and use the same pieces to create altogether different looks, it will save you beaucoup bucks in the end.
While looking for some inspiration, I found a slew of in-house videos made from a gal who calls herself, “xJOLE”. Her videos are fantastic. Firstly, because she offers a delightful “how-to” approach that isn’t at all cheesy. Secondly, because she often reuses the same pieces to create varied looks, which, as I said above, is KEY to making the most out of your wardrobe.
Besides all of this, xJOLE films her “how-to’s” in her messy bedroom, the backdrop made up disheveled drawers and an unkempt bed piled with clothes. I love it. No frills, just facts. (And really cute clothes!)
I am going to be stalking her YouTube vids, myself, but if you want a taste of her style, check out this video, a Fashion Segment for “First Date Outfits”:
Also, check out this link for the “Outfit of the Day” she put together for Mother’s Day. I love her pretty, prep-school style, don’t you? It just makes me want to shopping… sigh. Maybe I’ll start with my closet.
