Still Clueless

Yes, you guessed it. More Clueless inspired fashion on the blog this evening! This equestrian inspired look was just something new I was trying out. I mean it's different for me, but I don't know - I really kind of like it! Sticking to one style was never really my thing. I just like to wear whatever clothes inspire me.

One of my best friends was actually about to throw out this tweed jacket when she was moving this past summer. There was something in me that just couldn't let this jacket part ways with me. So I thought I'd hold onto it in case I started feeling some kind of inspiration around it. And that's exactly what happened once the temperature started dropping.

What I love about the tweed design is that it gives you room to play and experiment with pattern combinations. I felt the black polka dots on this blouse were subtle enough to play on the green and purple of the tweed, but had just enough eccentricity to give it a little pop!

These high waisted shorts have really been pulling through for me this fall whenever I've wanted to do a look with tall socks.

Some more borrowed bling from the mom. I may just need to come home more often. I really adore her pendant collection! I think I'm going to start one of my own. More and more thrift stores seem to be carrying them these days. I like the idea of adding some shine to my lapels!

A closer look at the shimmer and glimmer.

Thank you Clueless for giving me some outfit inspiration for these past two posts! I know I'm so annoying to watch 90's films with nowadays because I can't seem to keep my mouth shut about what any and every character is wearing throughout the entirety of the film. But if you really observe the costumes, how could you not be excited?! They're so authentic and so much fun to get into. Keep that in mind the next time you're looking for some wardrobe inspiration.

The Plaid Skrt

Happy Thanksgiving Eve Stares goers! This is an exciting time for me. You know why? Not because of Thanksgiving (well, that's a lie. Definitely because of Thanksgiving), or because it's the end of the semester, or because Christmas is only EXACTLY a month away. It's because plaid skirts are making their coming back! Hoorah!

I never liked plaid. But I guess when you grow as a person, your likes and dislikes grow and change with you. Seeing that I've got 90's fever right now, it probably explains my most recent attachment to certain Clueless inspired pieces.

Remember when I told you guys in Turtle Time that I have a slight infatuation with sleeveless turtlenecks, and how I considered getting one in every color? Welp...
Snagged a pair of my mom's beautiful, vintage clip-on earrings. I hope she isn't reading this. She hates when I go in her jewelry box. Love you, Mom!

In my new found experience with the plaid skirt, I've found it to be extremely versatile. Edge it up, make it preppy, make it casual, or super dressy. I kind of combined mine with a sporty, edgy, and preppy style here. What do you think?

Also, I am cultivating this new kind of love for loafers that I've never had before. It doesn't really matter what you choose to wear them with - they're super easy to slip on, and they give your look just a hint of cleanliness that I really respect. I may be investing in a few more pairs in the very near future.

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way, shape, form, or fashion (haa) affiliated with or support the USC gamecocks. I just really like this baseball cap.

Hey! Guess what? I've got some more really fun, festive pieces coming to the Stares soon. As well as some BTS fashion show snippets, tattoo updates, and lots of lovely brand features. Stick by the Stares. I'll see ya real soon.
