    The Look: Twiggy

    Simplified outfits have really been my thing lately, and I love the ’60s mod look that Twiggy was an icon for. She was at first scrutinized for her boyish frame and short hair, but in the end she became one of the most famous symbols of the era. Simple boxy shift dresses, knee high socks, and mini skirts. The look is so simple, yet so stylish and cute. And if I could pull off the pixie cut, trust me I would.

    I won’t lie, the name of this product is what made me try it the first time around, who doesn’t want to be a “sexy mother pucker?” However, I’ve tried other lip plumpers before but this one is now my favorite. The tingling sensation lets you know it’s doing its thing, and it feels amazing. Your lips will feel full, glossy, and yes, sexy.

    The Inspiration: Tokyo Street Style
    I went to Tokyo a couple of months ago, and I fell in love with the city and its people. The street style is unreal there, and just walking around you can actually feel the love of fashion that everyone has. The style there is playful, but still chic, and it has really influenced my current wardrobe..
    The Song: “Charm Attack” - Leona Naess

    The first time I heard this song I thought maybe Leona had written a song about one of my particular relationships, because the lyrics described that mess pretty perfectly. But I think every girl goes through a phase where she naively dates a charmer like the guy in this song. Now that I’m a little older and wiser, it’s much easier to fight the charm attack.
