My Week As A British Fashion Icon

A little background on this post:

Every week I pick a new theme to help choose my outfits, I’ve done all black week, graphic tee week, big sweater week, etc. This week I decided to follow fashion advice from influential women in the British fashion scene. Here are the results:

Tuesday: Perrie Edwards of Little Mix

My look: Hat: Hand-knit Christmas gift from a family friend. Shirt: Walmart, $8.00 (?) Jeans: Target, Mossimo Brand, $24.99 Boots: Ross, $24.99 (?) Jackey: Borrowed from my roommate, Brix (she thrifted it though! Maybe $20?) Necklace: Street Vendor at First Friday in Old City, Philadelphia, $25

My look:
Hat: Hand-knit Christmas gift from a family friend.
Shirt: Walmart, $8.00 (?)
Jeans: Target, Mossimo Brand, $24.99
Boots: Ross, $24.99 (?)
Jackey: Borrowed from my roommate, Brix (she thrifted it though! Maybe $20?)
Necklace: Street Vendor at First Friday in Old City, Philadelphia, $25

This Perrie inspired look got me a few odd glances when I was wearing a wool hat in class on a day that was relatively warm considering the date, but like Perrie said, “Politely eat sh*t haters.” (Okay, maybe that wasn’t a direct quote, but if you listen to “A Different Beat” by Little Mix, she basically says that.)

Wednesday: Her Royal Highness, The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton

Blazer: Target, No Boundaries Brand, $24.99 (?) Shirt: Ross, $11.99 (?) Jeans: Walmart, Rider by Lee Brand, $24.99 (?) Shoes: Urban Outfitters, $10 (On Sale)

My Look:
Blazer: Target, No Boundaries Brand, $24.99 (?)
Shirt: Ross, $11.99 (?)
Jeans: Walmart, Rider by Lee Brand, $24.99 (?)
Shoes: Urban Outfitters, $10 (On Sale)
Belt: Target, $15.99

I stepped out of my normal style comfort zone on Wednesday, and boy was I glad that I did. I showed up to class and we had an industry professional speaking to us. I looked young but like I actually give a sh*t about how I appear to others. As opposed to my usual grunge-chic attire which makes me look like I make lots of bad decisions on a daily basis. 

Thursday: British Model, Cara Delevingne

My Look: Jacket: Borrowed from my roommate Brix, American Eagle Outfitters, $90 (?) Shirt: Stolen from my Step-Dad, $5 (?) Pants: Walmart, $12.00 Boots: Ross, $24.99 Hat: Target, $8

My Look:
Jacket: Borrowed from my roommate Brix, American Eagle Outfitters, $90 (?)
Shirt: Stolen from my Step-Dad, $5 (?)
Pants: Walmart, $12.00
Boots: Ross, $24.99
Hat: Target, $8

I just loved this look. It was very true to my inner bad*ss and was also actually something that I have worn before. (Don’t crucify me! In the style of Kate: “Lizzie McGuire, you are an outfit repeater”) I have never worn Brix’ jacket before, so that added a little zest to it. ADDED BONUS: A man actually noticed what I was wearing and said that I had interesting style. Interesting. INTERESTING? I don’t really know if that’s good or bad, but I’ll take a shout out from a new fan whenever I can get it.

Friday: Rock Princess and Fashion Police Host, Kelly Osbourne

My look: Vest: Borrowed from my roommate, Brix Top: Walmart, Danskin Brand %12.99 (?) Leggings: Walmart, George Brand $7.99 Shoes: Breckelle's Brand, $24.99 Necklace: Gift from my sister, Alaina

My look:
Vest: Borrowed from my roommate, Brix
Top: Walmart, Danskin Brand %12.99 (?)
Leggings: Walmart, George Brand $7.99
Shoes: Breckelle’s Brand, $24.99
Necklace: Gift from my sister, Alaina

It was hard for me to choose between my Cara look and this look as my favorite of the week. I loved the edginess of the bold lip and messy updo paired with the simple black ensemble and denim vest. I find that as rule of thumb I definitely feel more confident when I wear all black. Today was no exception. So I would have to say, this was probably my favorite.

In regard to Monday; I didn’t actually wear clothes, hence why I started at Tuesday. I channeled my inner ancient greek and wore a bed sheet (a la toga style) around the apartment all day. Ah, the perks of having Monday’s off. Anyway, I had a great time with this theme and I am really sad to see it go!

What do you think? Which was your favorite look?
