Get The Look: Wildest Dreams Music Video

Hi guys!

Taylor Swift came out with another awesome video, so I obviously had to do a Get The Look for it. Wildest Dreams is one of my favorite songs on 1989. It plays into the storyline aspect that I love in her music.
All of the outfits in the video were perfectly chosen and so flattering. It has a really great 1950’s styling that works so well with the setting and plot.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, check it out here!

Without further ado, here is the Wildest Dreams Get The Look!

This look is so wearable. This would be perfect for work if you tucked the shirt in instead of tying it.

Blue Floral Sundress

This dress is a little different, but has the same feeling as the video one. They’re both beautiful. I actually like the print on the Etsy one better.

Polka Dot Scarf & Cateye Sunglasses

This is such a classic look. I think you can be pretty sure that cateyes and polka dots will “never go out of style”.

Blue Matching Set

I love this look for work. It’s cute but polished, and the pastel blue monochrome makes it modern.

Gingham Playsuit/Romper

I decided to go with a more wearable version of this outfit, because that is basically a bathing suit.

Pink Jacquard Evening Dress

Wildest Dreams pink dressDress: Unique Vintage
This dress is so gorgeous and the Unique Vintage on has the perfect neckline. I actually like the bottom on the UV one more. I’d always choose a swishy skirt over a tight one.

As you know if you’ve been reading my blog for the past month, I have become a bit obsessed with Alexa Chung. I only added fuel to the fire by rereading her book It last week.

I’ve been wanting to do another Get The Look post, but hadn’t found any music videos/movies that inspired me, and then at 2 a.m. last night I realized, why don’t I do people. It’s a seemingly idiotically simple idea, yet somehow it took me over a year to think of it.

I used Polyvore this time, which I have never really used before. I love being able to add backgrounds and crop the images easily. There is a bit of a learning curve getting everything placed and sized correctly, but I had fun doing it.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!

Get The Look: “I Knew You Were Trouble” Music Video

I really loved the “I Knew You Were Trouble” music video. Like, a lot. I probably watched it ten times when it first came out. It’s the perfect combination of fun and dramatic lyrics and a head-banging beat aka, the perfect song to jam out to in the car.

When I first thought up these Get The Look posts I knew I wanted this to be one of them.

NOW, onto the looks!!!

Round dot t-shirt:

MOON heather grey SHIRT super SOFT unisex t shirt all sizes xs-xxl

I could not find a great match for this one, but I did find a really awesome moon t-shirt with a similar feel. It’s available on Etsy here for $28. I really love anything with a celestial print on it, so this has been in my Etsy favorites for months. I actually like the moon better than the plain dot.

Silver key necklace:

I did find a pretty good match for this, also on Etsy. You can pick it up here for $18.50. I love key necklaces. I think they’re really timeless. I’ve been wearing the same one every day for four years and it goes with everything.

Lace top:

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 12.22.18 AM 

I really thought this one would be super easy; lace tank tops were everywhere last year. They made up the majority of my wardrobe. However, I found almost nothing similar. If you really want something similar at a decent price, I would recommend Marshalls or TJMaxx. They always have cute lace tops for twelve or thirteen dollars. But, if you can’t do that you can pick up the Free People one I found from Bloomingdales here on sale for $40. It is super pretty, just not as good of a match as I was hoping for.

Floral t-shirt and body con skirt:

 Floral Crop Top// Geometric Flower Print// White Ink on Gray-Black Boxy T// American ApparelScreen Shot 2014-02-06 at 11.56.50 AM

This is one of the most budget friendly looks I found. Both pieces together are only $25. You can pick up the t-shirt from Etsy for $14.50 and the skirt from Charlotte Russe for $10.

Fringe cardigan:

I don’t understand why, but I could not find a single cardigan with fringe on the sleeves. I love fringe on sleeves, and fringe is pretty popular this season, but apparently not for the sleeve region. I did find a really cute cardigan with fringe on the lapels at BonTon on sale for $51.

Floral cardigan and round sunglasses:

This was the closest thing I could find to Taylor’s cardigan. The colors and style are different, but the feel of the piece is very similar. If you like it you can pick it up at Asos on sale for $36.11.

You can get these really cool, John Lennon-esque sunglasses from Urban Outfitters for $14.

Green flannel:

Nothing good happens to Taylor when she’s in the flannel. It’s the sad- I’ve lost my identity – flannel. I think it’s supposed to be her boyfriend’s and it represents the hold he has on her… or maybe she’s just trying to be a hipster. I wanted to maintain the oversized, boyfriend look so I found a pretty similar shirt in the men’s section from L.L.Bean for $39.95.

Pink hair dye:

If you’re looking to get Taylor’s pink locks, one of my favorite pink dye’s is Color Jamz in the shade Party Time Pink. You can pick the dye up from Sally Beauty Supply for $6.49.

Every time I watch the video, I’m tempted to dye the tips of my hair pink again. I had them pink for a few months freshmen year of college using this dye.

It looked like this…

What I like about it is that it doesn’t last long, so if you’re just looking for a shade for the weekend this one will wash out pretty quickly. I also like how it looks on brown hair, I actually prefer it on brown to blonde. The first picture of my pink hair is with a brown base and the second is when I bleached the ends, so you can see how it looks on both colors. 

Felt hat:

I love this hat. I think it adds the perfect bohemian feel to any outfit. You can pick it up at H&M for $19.95.

I hope you enjoyed this Get The Look. I had a lot of fun making it! I think I may forever be a little obsessed with Taylor Swift’s style.

Get The Look: Taylor Swift in New Zealand

So, this is a slightly different Get The Look than normal because it’s only one look, but my excitement about this look deserved a full post.

Taylor Swift uploaded some photos on her Facebook page today.
I don’t know about you, (but I’m feeling twenty-two…) but I’m a pretty big T Swift fan, so I was excited I check out the pictures.
At first I thought, that dress is pretty, and then I thought, I know where that’s from!
I know I’ve seen Taylor in Free People dresses before, so I am pretty positive that she’s in the Free People French Courtship Slip.
Here are the pictures she uploaded, so you can get a look at the dress on her.

It’s a really pretty slip, and I love how she layered the lace top over it in the first picture.

New Zealand looks pretty awesome. I don’t know much about it other than the posters from Flight of The Concords…

Taylor’s pictures make it look much more enticing. She makes me wish I had a Polaroid camera. And a super awesome singing career.

But that’s beside the point.

I am hoping to get some more Get The Looks together once I’m on break. I have a few ideas for different music videos I want to get looks from, one being Taylor’s 22.

This is my last week of classes, and then I have finals next week. In less than two weeks this crazy busy semester will be over, and I will have much more time to devote to blogging, which I have really missed. Working thirty hours a week while going to school means that my free time consists of driving to and from school, with just enough time to eat Taco Bell tacos in my car. I think the people at the drive thru are starting to recognize me, which is never a positive statement.

I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, and good luck if you’re slogging through finals, too!

Get The Look: Avicii “Wake Me Up”

I saw the video for “Wake Me Up” a few weeks ago, and I’ve wanted to do a Get The Look post ever since. The wardrobe was mostly provided by Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply Co. so I included links to the products that are available as well as more budget friendly options. Side note: the singer of the song is a guy named Aloe Blacc. I don’t understand why all of the sudden DJ’s are being listed as the artists instead of the singers. I feel like these are just music producers, but maybe I’m wrong. Does anyone know if what Avicii and David Guetta do is any different from the people who produce say, Rihanna’s songs? But anyway, onto the looks!

Nightgown Image
I couldn’t find a perfect match, but I found a similar cut with the Free People Squared Away Slip. It doesn’t come in white, which is a bummer. I’m sure this would have been easier to find over the summer. Now all of these kind of dresses are sold out.

Military Jacket Image
You can get this season’s version of the Denim & Supply jacket at Macy’s, and I found a similar one, better suited for winter, at Forever 21.

Plaid Shirt

 Aztec Print Top Image
They only showed a tiny snippet of this top in the video, but it’s one of my favorites. You can get this season’s at Macy’s.

Slouchy Beanie
Image
I found a very similar wallet-friendly option at Forever 21 for only $3.90.

Turquoise Ring Image
The most similar one I could find is an American Eagle ring that isn’t exactly the same shape, but has the same colors and feel.

The Creepy Girl’s Dress! Image
This girl looks like she might eat your brains for dinner with her brother who is also her father, but if you can get past the horrible braids, I think her dress is actually kind of cute. I found a slightly more fashionable one at ModCloth, the place of all things peter pan collar. I hope you enjoyed the post, and eh, don’t sleep through your life!

I absolutely love 78Violet’s music video for their new single Hothouse! I’ve been listening to Aly and AJ since I was twelve. They were my absolute favorite singers when I was in middle school.

The styling is absolutely gorgeous- I knew right away that I wanted to make a post about it. I recognized a lot of the pieces in the video, so I wanted to make a clothing and hair guide if you’d like to steal their style!
