On another note, I realize that The STYLE OUTLIER is getting less love these days as I am focused on building my DIY fashion blog, HIGH on DIY. If you are looking for a creative fix for the weekend, check it out! There are fun and easy DIYs for necklaces, bracelets and many more.
I am so excited to announce my new blog HIGH on DIY. I have been working on the concept, set-up and design for a while now and it’s finally launched! HIGH on DIY is a DIY fashion blog that will feature fun and easy DIYs to recreate fashion’s latest trends so you can reveal your unique personal style when rocking those DIYs. I have always loved creating so I am super excited to have a new place to share them with you. Read more about HIGH on DIY and why I created it here. For the first post on HIGH on DIY, I went with a favorite piece of accessory I saw during New York Fashion Week in February. I have wanted to recreate it since then. It’s the Rodarte (Fall 2012 collection) inspired shooting star hair-clip. You can see me wearing the final DIY in the picture above. Head over to HIGH on DIY to see the full post!
These street style looks were captured during the Lollapalooza weekend. I did not get to shoot at the actual event but I met these girls as they were heading to Grant Park for the concerts & I was on my way home from downtown. I loved the crazy prints in their outfits mixed with lace, leather, denim and fun jewelry. It reminded me of two girls I had photographed last fall.
This style outlier was captured on a beautiful afternoon in downtown Chicago. I was really drawn to her love of all things studs and spikes — from her handbag to her spike bracelets. She wanted to take off the headscarf before taking the picture but I felt that the touch of detail with the headwear really added to the overall look. So she kept it and I love how the shot turned out. Headscarves have made a major comeback on the runway and it is a very fun accessory for the summer. If you want to give this headscarf look a try, checkout these or these photos that show all the different ways you can style it.
