The Vampire Diaries Fashion: Katherine Pierce Shoes

Monday, December 6th, 2010

katherine pierce shoes

Katherine Pierce? She’s a badass mutha in The Vampire Diaries, and she’s not much for apologies about anything. I’m not saying you should go out and be ruthless like her, but if you need a confidence boost…have you considered that half of Katherine’s power comes from her shoes? (The other half is from her hair, yes.)

Katherine Pierce shoes are always black. If they’re not black, she’s not wearing them! They’re heeled – the pointier the better. They can be boots, booties (although she’d hardly call them that) or platform pumps.

The Vampire Diaries Katherine Style Guide

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

katherine vampire diaries fashion

Katherine Pierce has a pretty easy style formula on The Vampire Diaries. In 2010, she keeps it fairly consistent. Like a true villain, she wears a lot A LOT A LOT of black. And then she usually has one pop of color. Sometimes that pop of color is a fuchsia top, sometimes it’s a deep red lip. She dresses like a femme fatale, everything is sexy and body-conscious. Rather than focusing on showing skin (think about it!), she tends to wear skintight items.

Expanding on that, I think that now that she’s back in Mystic Falls, Katherine will be looking to the past for inspiration a bit. After all, this is the first time she’s back in Mystic Falls for quite a well.

This is so luxe, so oh-la-la, so femme fatale. ... Read More

Vampire Diaries Style Guide for Bonnie Bennett

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

bonnie bennett style

On The Vampire Diaries, Katerina Graham plays Bonnie Bennett, a burgeoning witch. The TVD costume designer has referred to Bonnnie’s style as that of a modern flower child, citing that Free People is a great label when looking for clothing for that character. Well, as a boho luxe enthusiast, I was flipping through a Free People Catalog that I’d kept for inspiration and decided to do a spotlight on some items that are in stores right now that would fit Bonnie’s style excellently. So, if you have Bennett style ambitions, this would be a good – nay – great place to start.

Here’s Bonnie in the Free People Run Free Flare Dress. ... Read More

serena van der woodsen season 4 fashion

Dress like Serena van der Woodsen by owning a pair of the earring she wore in a recent Gossip Girl season 4 episode. Gossip Girl fashion for season 4  Serena this season is more edgy, and sometimes pretty boho. (Her hair is often whackadoodle, she needs to brush it more!)

Serena’s earrings in Gossip Girl Juliet Doesn’t Live Here Anymore were by Double Happiness. They are the Zahav earrings from the Stalagmite collection.

Antique gold textured earring with natural stone or metal encrustations.

Available in garnet, gunmetal faceted metal beads, or silver faceted metal beads.

3¾”L x 1¼”W Price: $175.00

I think Serena van der Woodsen’s fashion sense would easily allow for her to wear any piece from Double Happiness, desig ... Read More

2011 Jewelry Trends: Hey, What Colors DO Pearls Come in?

summer 2011 jewelry trends

Modern Pearl Earrings are heeeeere! …Do I sound like Oprah? Ahaha.

There is one 2011 jewelry trend that you can adjust for easily as the seasons turn. If I say “pearls” you might cringe and conjure up the image of a very poised and modest elderly woman wearing very classic pearls. And you know what, classic pearls are never going out of style – so let’s not knock them. HOWEVER, maybe you’re young and fresh and want to be ladylike or stylish without feeling like you’re your Mother. That’s when you need to stop thinking about pearls as being just white, and think about multi-colored pearls.
