So, you wanna dress like Mercedes from Glee? Hello, it’s Rachel, everyone. This is a plus sized post about Glee fashion. Specifically it will cover Mercedes fashion look. You may want to dress like Rachel Berry (or Quinn Fabray), and are plus size, so I’ll think about doing a post like that in the future. (Please leave a comment to let me know if that’s of interest.)
Mercedes is girly, powerful, talent and also insecure sometimes. She dresses in bright colors, and the pieces are sporty with a feminine, fun sense about them. Least that is how I see it.
What would Rachel Berry wear? Well, it’s fun to think about that, isn’t it?
Here’s my idea of what she’d wear for St. Patrick’s Day. I gave her a really cute denim purse, and used purple as a color to accent the green. I mean, how do you pass up purple kitten heels? Especially if you plan to wear them with sheer white polka-dotted socks!
What Would Quinn Fabray wear? Well, here’s an idea…
This spring-inspired look focuses on on Quinn doesn’t like to show a lot of skin, and always looks polished, likes dresses, florals, and flats. Purple looks great with yellow, so take this look from “standard” to fun with some shimmery organic purple polish. I could see Quinn wearing this to church on Easter Sunday. Glee fashion with Quinn is always girly and pulled-together.
What would Rachel Berry wear? We are pretty sure we know, since we’re such major Gleeks. If you think you also know, please feel free to link to your own ideas from your blogs, Polyvore, or uploaded images to TinyPic.com or Photobucket.com (etc.) Glee love is for everyone!
In the meantime, let me know what you think about my outfit. I know I forgot to show some sort of little white cardigan that she’d need, but otherwise I’m pretty proud! I love the bright colors and the saddle shoes that have a slight heel. Singer Jenny Lewis wore a pair similar to these once!
The silver bracelet is especially cool because it’s from Foxy Originals (whom I loooove) and the words say “Dreams come true.” That seems very Berry, dontcha think? She’s always positive!
Of the four Pretty Little Liars dresses featured in the episode “Careful What U Wish For” Hanna Marin had our favorite. It’s a Betsey Johnson dress!

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.

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
Katherine Pierce’s makeup isn’t too vampy, even though she’s a vampire on The Vampire Diaries.
FACE: Subtle rose blush on the apples of her cheeks (smile and you’ll see them!) and some contouring powder from the edge of her face inward under her cheekbones.
EYES: She wears smokey black eyeliner that’s a little heavy on her upper lids and black mascara. To get this look, apply your black eyeliner and then go over it with a dark eyeshadow color. I always do this as it “sets” the liner so it doesn’t smudge any further. When I do this I can often skip an eye primer if I want to (my mineral makeup works great over the lid as a base anyway.)
Use matte or satin eyeshadows, nothing with shimmer. She pairs eyeshadows like beige and dark brown in her crease. The trick: think of the neutral brown you’d see on Elena and then go a tad darker. Try a matte dark shadow like Pretty Pansy by Eve Organics. It’s not black, but there’s ... Read More
In the Glee episode “Special Education” Emma Pillsbury wears a really wonderful green striped coat.
The coat is by Kate Spade. It’s called the Studio Mona Coat and is currently on sale for $521.00. I really like the boldness of the green with the graphic punchy pattern and the shawl collar that’s a bow. To buy: Click Here
Aren’t Emma Pillsbury jackets ALWAYS so great?
There’s a similar green skirt called the Studio Julia Skirt. To buy: Click Here... Read More
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
