#BookwormFashion: Eadlyn Inspired Look (The Selection Series by Kiera Cass)

Books/Graphic Novels, Fashion & Design

Eadlyn Dress The Heir The Crown

One thing I’ve found I love to do the last few years: bring a look from a story to life. It lets me combine my secret wish to be a fashion consultant/personal stylist with my love of reading, and Polyvore lets me do it without actually spending a dime.

While I typically aim to create everyday looks, Princess Eadlyn, protagonist of The Heir and The Crown by Kiera Cass wears only the finest. This modern ballgown by Modcloth.com combines the shape and detail of the dress from The Heir with the color of gown from The Crown. Accessorize with an embellished sash or belt and some dressy heels. And no princess would dare be caught on camera without her tiara! Find all the items used in this set and shop the look on Polyvore.

Korra Series Finale Inspired Look

Korra Finale DressKorra Series Finale Inspired Look

And the inspiration from the killer outfits featured in the wedding in the series’ finale of The Legend of Korra continues. Korra’s dress uses what is known as a cut-out shoulder or “cold shoulder” design which draws attention to the sleeves. Here are three options for budgets both high and low. Glamorize an otherwise casual ensemble with beautiful shell-based jewelry like that used in the Water Tribe. A dream catcher necklace captures the shape and style of Korra’s own accessory to complete the look.

aa18d02536f95064d85a982a172aa284With the Star Wars Episode 7 trailer having been released today, I thought it was as good a time as any to share this fall/winter Padmé Amidala inspired look I put together in Polyvore.

I was introduced to Star Wars at a very young age and a good part of my childhood was spent watching the original trilogy on VHS, then DVD, and the new trilogy in theaters (then VHS, then DVD). When I was young, I thought Padmé was one of the coolest sci-fi females around and I still think she’s pretty cool. Take an afternoon of boredom combined with my childhood love of dress up, access to the internet, and this is the result.

For this Fashion Friday, I decided it’s been awhile since I did an Everyday Bookworm post so I’m sharing a Hunger Games inspired look I made in Polyvore awhile ago.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve seen the new trailers for Mockingjay Part 1 that have been coming out over the course of the last month. Just in case you need a refresher, here are the official trailers.

Are you looking forward to the new movie this fall? What’s your favorite Katniss look? Let me know in the comments. Till next time, thanks for reading and have a happy Friday, fellow bookworms!

Fashion Fridays: Gwen Stacy Inspired Look

a40d1c4459397c12d4605e2fab651593 Earlier this summer I reviewed The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It’s no secret I love Gwen Stacy as a character and Emma Stone as an actress. I especially love Gwen’s outfits in both Amazing Spider-Man movies. Though the looks above are inspired by film, several of Gwen’s on-screen outfits were based directly on what she wears in the original graphic novel, which I think is pretty cool.

What do you think of Gwen Stacy’s fashion and the looks above? Share your thoughts in the comments and have an awesome Friday!

For those who didn’t know, the brand new Sailor Moon reboot Sailor Moon Crystal aired 2 days ago and is available to view free on Hulu. Momoiro Clover Z did a brand new song for the opening entitled “Moon Pride.”

Not only are the lyrics awesome and all about girl-power, but the opening sequence features a brief scene toward the end where the original 5 senshi gather together dressed in civilian clothes.

The outfits are so cute and remind me of the fashions I grew up with in 90’s (when the original anime aired and the manga was written), so I decided to recreate these 5 looks on Polyvore. Usagi’s outfit is up top and the other 4 girls’ are shown below:
