Elle Fanning is staring in the advert for Lolita Lempicka fragrance and since I was planning to do a post on her style for ages I thought this was the perfect opportunity.You can watch the advert here.
Both Fanning sisters are lovely but there s something about Elle s eclectic look that just stands out.She wears vintage girly ensembles like a pro and with her long blonde looks could easily pass for one of the Lisbon Sisters in The Virgin Suicides(she is also a fan of the movie btw).However Elle is not always a girly girl and outside the red carpet she dons tomboyish looks with the same confidence. She is one to watch in the fashion/acting stakes in the future.
Those cartoonish glasses are just too cool,seriously I need a pair.
Girly understated looks
Red carpet glamour
Events and day to day looks
Out and about.Loving the first look.

It s actually amazing how relevant her style is today.Here are a few pictures for inspiration.I had them in my computer for ages so I thought I would share them with you.
Tie dye,bralets,crop tops and all the things that are cool today were in her wardrobe ages ago.
Notice the cool accessories.
Love the hippie blouse.

I just started school today and I already have homework.However I am in 6th year(last yr of Secondary School/High School) and this is kind of expected.Anyways I have decided to post pictures from my last successful shopping trip to remind me of holidays.The sales have been great this summer,especially Zara and Bershka.I was well impressed with their price cuts so here s what I have bought with the last remnants of my economies.
Those lovely high waisted shorts for just 10euro.
This jumper from Zara for only 6euro.It was supposed to be 10 euro but it had a pen stain on the sleeve so they lowered the price even more.I just have to wash it now.
This shirt was actually from my last money,it was also on sale and it was so pretty I just could not leave it there.
Were you happy with the sales this Summer?Did you find any good bargains?

Black is easy to wear and probably the most versatile colour and by the looks of it you are going to see a lot more of it in fall along with burgundy.You can dress it up or down and wear it in so many different ways(see Leigh Lezark, she wears black a lot and she always looks great in it btw).
How awesome is the dress Julia Roitfeld is wearing?She tends to wear a lot of black.
Love the lace ensemble Gillian Zinser is wearing.You can always count on her to stand out from the crowd.
Mini from Skins had lots of awesome outfits but this has been my favourite.Also the whole cat thing Pixie Lott has going on is kinda cool even if it may have been done before I think it suits her.

A pair of Vans like them ones would be a perfect replacement for my battered old Converse which have been worn repeatedly throughout the last 2 years or so.Never mind,I still love them anyways.The jumper reflects my new found obsession with knitwear.I know what you must be thinking,who the hell thinks of knitwear in summer but with weather like this and with New Look already having all those lovely jumpers and cardigans on display it's hard not to.The high waisted denim shorts are also a basic which can be worn with anything and if you are lucky enough to own a pair of Levi's then it's even better.I wouldn't put the baseball cap in this outfit combination but it would be a nice addition to my wardrobe.

This look is not something I would usually wear but a floppy hat or some feathery accessories can look good with many types of outfits if worn right.The outfit was inspired by this cool photo shoot Lucy Hale did for Seventeen mag last summer.I just loved that earring for Edge of Urge.

I would go to a basketball match in Brooklyn wearing this outfit.It is inspired by tough RnB ladies Rihanna and Rita Ora and by Kanye West's love of red. Not everyone can pull the sports luxe,gangsta style off and there are high chances of looking like the white trash version of it but I think those items would work on anyone. I'm not really into Hip Hop but I like this style,it s fun,colourful and you can accessorise as much as you like.Also red lippie and stiletto nails look cool with this look.
Rihanna obviously knows how to work it so this is also a good occasion to look at her awesome style from 2012/2011
Love the Boy London outfit.The rest of the pics are when she is out and about.She has effortless style.
I love her use of jewellery and she can really pull off a white outfit.The floral shorts are also on trend it makes me want a pair as well or maybe a floral skirt cause I'm looking for one anyways.
I really liked her blonde do,it looked really sophisticated especially in the first picture with those awesome sunglasses and chic suit.
Other cool outfits,the asymetrical yellow dress is awesome and so are her sunnies and her shoes.The girl really knows how to accessorise.
Those are some of my favourite Rihanna outfits.I like how she wears Vans with dresses and that baseball cap.
Those are some of my faves of her performing styles.I like the first best,it just suits her so well and it s so nicely accessorised.
In conclusion it took me a while to pick her best outfits as she has so many cool ones and she plays with so many different styles.I might have missed some cool ones like the ones she wore on her UK X Factor
performances,you know that checked dress she wore last year and the one from 2010 with flowers stuck to it .Anyways I m just curious which one of the hair colours she has tried in the last two years is your favourite?
Now that I think about it I could have made a post about her hairstyles as well but that would have taken ages but you can see them in the pictures as well.

I like glitter this month especially when it comes to nails and make up it looks so fresh and captures natural light so beautifully.This make up looks are intensely eye catching and compliment every complexion very well. Kaya Scodelario and Diana Vickers went for applied specks and it looks gorgeous on both of them while Diana Agron and Jessica Alba went for the more subtle version of glitter eyeshadow which looks just as good.
In the nails department the nebulae manicure is very popular over the blogosphere and the peeps from rookie mag were one step ahead and even made a tutorial on how to get them which you can find here. Anyways I find that any model of glitter nail polish looks nice as it really pops out and its a good way to refresh your beauty look.
There are many nails polishes you can use you probably know them already.Alexa Chung uses this red shade from Barry M because it reminds her of Dorothy s shoes.It has a reasonable price and it s an easy way to achieve the look.
Another way of bringing some sparkle into your life is through glittery shoes like those gorgeous ones from Miu Miu.You can find similar ones in Topshop and they really look amazing or you can DIY if you feel crafty enough.

So while its summer with all this rain in Ireland it doesn't feel very summery so that's why my list contains more autumn like pieces like the brogues and the biker jacket but you can still wear them during summer on chilly nights.Though the list reflects some basic stuff I need in my wardrobe actually so it s nothing to do with the seasons or the weather.I currently own a lovely pair of lace brogues from Accessorize but I can t wear them when it s raining so I need a spare pair.Until I get a pair I ll go back to my beloved Chucks which last in any type of weather and had been worn to death.The skirt is the A-line type and very basic so that's why I like it,you can wear it with anything so that's why I'm looking for a similar one.It s the type UK blogger llymlrs wears a lot in her posts and it looks so good so she must be on to something.The basic white tee is a must,it doesn't necessarily have to be with stripes.The biker jacket is something I ve coveted for long but I'm waiting to find something for my budget(maybe primark will make some nice ones in the future).I also want some glitter nail polish and some long earrings.

So I heard lots about MSCL and it s a cult American show so how could I miss it.There are lots of things you can discuss when it comes to MSCL including the ending which obviously leaves space for a continuation in a second season which was never made.However, I console myself by imagining my own version of events.Now I m not going into detail with this as thestylerookie.com has already and amazing article which discusses MSCL and Rayanne Graff s amazing style and also her role in the show and the reasons why she is awesome in her own way.So while Tavi Gevinson made a post about her style It wouldnt make sense to make another post but one thing about Rayanne that was never discussed is her house which can really give you some inspiration if you want to redecorate your room.It s very colurfull and it kinda feels like entering a gypsy carriage or a gypsy tent at a fair but in a good way.It really matches Rayanne s style and you can see where she gets her inspiration for her clothes.So I made those screen shots myself.Sorry for the bad quality but they are off You Tube where I actually watched the show.
