My name is Grace and I'm a fashion addict. I love that fashion is an outlet we can use to express individuality. Fashion has always been, for me, a way to have fun. I hope to pursue a career in journalism after college. So if you like what you see, follow me.
Dr. Martens are an institution in the fashion world. For the edgy and unkempt, these shoes are the epitome of urban street wear. They come in every color and pattern imaginable, from subdued shades to vivid hues. They are perfect for avid shoe lovers and those experimenting with their style. They give a pop of color and a dash of punk. Dr. Martens would be a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe.
One of the biggest trends of the season, sheer fabric, just happens to be one of my favorites. The versatility of using sheer fabric is endless. From organza to lace, designers and the high street have been utilizing the trend in skirts, shirts, dresses and accessories. One of my favorites, the sheer maxi makes for the perfect fall piece. Using sheer pieces in your wardrobe is a mark of the daring and the confident. My advice? Go for it. Play with your proportions and layer it up to create the perfect look. This is definitely a trend worth trying, so get out there and rock it.
Rodarte’s new spring collection was filled with gorgeous monochrome looks with edgy accents. Fringe ran rampant, being used as trim on skirts and tops. Sheer cut outs and bare midriffs added some interest by showing a bit of skin. My favorite element was the use of scorpions as a motif in several of the pieces. I also really loved the lock earrings as well. They were a great accessory to add, and I’m toying with the idea of recreating my own pair. But how did you guys like the collection?
