Hey everybody, my name is Sophia Pierson and I am a new style-writer with Assignment Fashion. This is my first post and I hope this, as well as future stories, will give you my general idea of what looks are hip as well as how to look & feel your best!
For my first look I chose an everyday,comfortable yet fashionable outfit. It is appropriate for shopping, going to lunch or even going out on the town if you add a pair of heels!
Let me start with the vest. I bought it from BeBe @ Metro-Town mall about 6 months ago, prices range from $160-180. The shirt underneath is from H&M from last spring and runs for about $20. The jeans are from Urban Planet in the Langley Willowbrook mall and are only about $25 and I love them 🙂
Here is how I chose to Accessorize the outfit.
- The purse is my cousins, it is Chanel so it won##Q##t come cheap..
- The watch is Guess and was a gift from my Aunt for my birthday a couple years back. I##Q##m not really sure of the price..
- Flip Flops are from either Wal-Mart or Old Navy, I can##Q##t remember, but they were really cheap, no more than 8$.. I love to always have pedicured toes in the summertime, my favourite is the french tip, I think it looks the classiest & cleanest.
I used to get fake nails but I didnt like how much they would ruin my nails & are also very pricey to keep maintained, although it is kind of a treat to have long nails for scratching backs and getting a good lather in your hair when your in the shower. I chose a nude, light pink colour on my nails from Shoppers Drugmart, it##Q##s Rimmel called Pink Bliss #305… You can never go wrong with neutral colored nails because it matches with pretty much everything! 🙂
Now let me tell you a little about my fashion history. Since I was young I had an eye for fashion and I##Q##ve always loved shopping (what girl doesn##Q##t) as well as having my hair and make-up done. I have many dreams and goals in this industry and try not to put limits on myself. I just started modelling 2 months ago and it##Q##s going really well! I have always wanted to do it and it##Q##s finally happening!
As a shopper I am quite the sniper when it comes to good deals so I will post as much as I can on that. My goal will be to have my post become a destination for those needing some guidance on putting together a “modern chic” look.
As far as beauty, I love to keep a tan, but I dont use tanning beds. My favourite products are Victoria##Q##s Secret Bare Bronze Collection. The night before I go out I use Sunkissed Bronze Instant Self Tan Lotion with Tint. Not only does it give you instant color, it also gradually builds your colour, so you can use it everyday until you reach the colour you desire. When I am getting ready to go out, I use Tan Enhancing Shimmer Lotion with Tint it instantly darkens your skin about 3-4 shades. Finally, I spray a light layer of Flawless Airbrush Instant Bronze Body Spray to get the maximum results this product is amazing & it is what the Victoria##Q##s Secret Angels use at the Annual Fashion Shows. PS: it smells amazing & only is $12 .
Anyways, back to fashion. I am quite a dare-devil when I go out! I love to be risky and try different looks… I always encourage my girlfriends to try new things. At first they are hesitant, but when they are all dolled up, they own it! I usually do my friend##Q##s hair & make-up on weekends and they are starting to catch on more, but they still prefer me to put on their fake eyelashes & spray tans. (PS if you want a thicker coverage for your spray tan, use Sally Hansens Leg Tanner, $18 at shoppers). Nothing is better than looking and feelin your best before a night out on the town! The beauty of living in Vancouver is the freedom of fashion! Anything goes!
I would like to end this post with a few words of advice… Lets start with confidence. The most important thing a girl wears is her attitude, confidence is key in a sexy outfit, you have to be able to pull it off. Even if you dont believe that you are beautiful or thin enough, Tell your self every day that you are. Whether you believe it or not, you will start to train your brain to believe it. Its psychology.
I have a good friend who tells me everyday that she is fat and she honestly has one of the nicest bodies I have ever seen. She tricked her brain into believing she is fat… Not Good! …You always need to have an “I can” attitude, ever notice how the most successful celebs say in interviews that they knew they were going to be famous? That is because they lived their lives knowing that they were going to make it, which is the main reason they have gotten so far…. So what im saying here is fake it until you make it, because the ones who matter dont mind and the ones who mind dont matter!
