I have a lot of set combinations and choices over on my Polyvore account and it happens once or twice that I make a post here about a set I’ve made months ago. It’s just how inspiration works … Sometimes you get incredibly inspired and create tons of great sets at the same time, but there come moments when you work and create but nothing you love comes out of it. I currently have a stop moment at my inspiration, that’s why I prefer using styles I’ve created some time ago, but I still love – than sets I’ve created days ago, but I’m not “obsessed” with.
The only problem with these sets is the fact that many items are already sold out. However, I believe many of you don’t read my posts, because you’d want to buy items. So, in a way, we are good! 🙂
Another dilemma I had is the fact that I wasn’t sure what title should I give to this set. I named it “something urban, maybe”. It does remind me of a specific woman in the acting and music industry. I love her style (it reminds of vintage a bit, too) and I can assure you I was inspired by her outfits when I was making this set. Maybe it’s not 100% Bethany Joy Lenz, but I see her in this creation nonetheless.
My favorite item in this set is the purely white top. It’s hard for me to find tops/shirts I like or would consider buying. Many items are either too baggy or too short or simply not my style. This top is gorgeous. Yes, the cleavage is bold, but it’s mature at the same time and you can cover it with a bra as you can cover it (or distract people from it) with a nice necklace.
I always prefer wearing skirts over dresses or jeans. I am not a girly kind of a person, though, so I usually wear darker and longer skirts. The length of this skirt is what worries me, too. It’s not ideal and with a short top, it can come off a bit too revealing. Women normally style long and high waisted items with shorter tops. But I’ve made the decision to use a (let’s say) colourful and kind-of-vintage skirt and I am sticking with that.
The shoes are where I see the most of Bethany Joy Lenz. I also like the fact that I didn’t try to match these high heels with the skirt, because everything would be blue and white (without the bag and the hat, I mean) and that would be way too dreamy.
Because of the top’s cleavage, I added a two layered necklace. I love these kind of necklaces and this one pairs up nicely with the skirt. Then I wanted to add a hat and a bag. With that, the style has this kind of a “street” touch. It doesn’t look too formal. It’d be nice to add rings and other jewelry to it and just smoothen the tough edge that this style has.
That’s about it. Thank you for reading my posts. You can buy the skirt if you liked it, everything else is sadly sold out!
Whaaat do you think of this style? Let me know in the comments.
