Why I watch girly shows…

I am a little ashamed to say, even as a woman nearing my 30s, I absolutely enjoy watching shows such as Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, Ringer, Project Runway and Sex and the City.  Why do I watch these shows when I could be watching a documentary or something intellectually stimulating?  For the simple reason of…I need outfit ideas!  Much of my inspiration comes from reading other fashion blogs, Fashion Television and shows that pay mind to a characters outfits and style.  Just last week, I was watching PLL and saw one of the characters, Aria, in this little outfit:


I was in love.  I found the top through eBay (it was an older top from Anthropologie), bought right away and immediately planned my outfit but I just couldn’t get over how awesome the wardrobe person styled Aria’s outfit.  So I put together something for my reference:

Ooohhh sparklie blue…

I just recently got a beaded mesh tank from American Eagle and the Tommy Hilfiger Heather flats with a chiffon and jewel detail and I thought, why not do a sparkly blue outfit! I used a plain black pant and plain blue cardigan to tone down the sparkle so I don’t end up looking like a walking bedazzled human.
