Unless you are living under a rock...or in America...you may not of heard of a little British show called "Skins". The show's premises is basically about bunch of teens going through school, relationships, drugs, sex, mental illness, anorexia,.. everything- And as a former teenager i must say it is an amazingly accurate view of "how it REALLY is"
The show is raw and brilliantly acted by such a young cast, seriously go buy Season 1&2!
Alrighty, enough of this 'Skins' love fest!
One of my most favorite characters in the tv show is 'Cassie Ainsworth' played incredibly by Hannah Murray. Cassie at first is seen just as this Trippy, free spirit, ditsy girl who says 'WOW' a whole lot, as we see her character deepened we seen that she is Anorexic & adores the control is has over people, and the object of her affection is Sid and absolutely painfully clueless guy who is in love with another.
Cassie is adored by fans not just for her flighty exterior and her sadly human interior but her sense of quirky fashion that I have just one word to describe: MODCLOTH
Invest in a couple of great vintage party dresses, cool shoes, and sock..yes i said socks, to go with them
Have a look at the accessories, purses, and jewelry!
and for Gods sake, brace yourself because your gonna wanna SHOP!
Cassie favors quirky, vintage, and individuality
Something we lack big time in our world
CASE IN POINT:
The greatest crime against fashion... and nature:
The Teen Abercrombie/Holister/Aeropostale/American Eagle Tragedy
*please bow your heads for a moment of silence*
im not gunna hate on every one of these stores,
When I see this:
I see someone who is just apart of the machine, its not cute
Take a hint from Cassie- put an outfit together based on what you like not what is the norm
Guess what ladies,
sometimes simple makeup is the biggest "statement" of all.- Try something out of the box, a red lipstick that will work for you and some light blue eye shadow-
Tip 1: Not TOO much eyeshadow, just enough to get the Cassie brush of color,
Tip 2: Play!, try out different shades and colors, the same look is so boooring!
Feel the freedom to dance like Cassie!
Peace Love and Shimmies
