As I slowly become more familiar with the fashion blogs that I follow regularly, I am always so impressed with how consistent their styles are with each post. Wendy’s look book graces us with high-end classy sophistication and elegant couture. Mara from M loves M showcases vintage-inspired, whimsical feminine beauty. Sarah from Classy girls wear pearls shares her creative, preppy New England fashion. All three of these ladies are so different, but their styles are all individually beautiful. I was just thinking the other day that I cannot seem to pinpoint what kind of style defines me. I suppose it’s probably because I recently discovered fashion, and I’m still trying to decide what category of style describes me. My closet is a haphazard explosion of randomness that doesn’t translate to anything consistent. One day, prep seems cool, then the next day I’m in love with elegant couture. Some days I just don’t know at all, and I’ll wear an outfit in preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse, or pretend I’m a CIA agent.
I have noticed however, that I tend to gravitate towards vintage inspired things. Floral, lace, bows, peter-pan collars, patterned dresses and flared skirts always catch my eye. Perhaps add in a hint of modern, business casual infusion. What would that be called? Modern Vintage? That doesn’t make sense. Isn’t that an oxymoron?
My favorite boutiques that sell vintage inspired items have been Ruche and Modcloth. Last year, I also came across a lovely little boutique called Lalamagic. I admired it from afar for a while, as I found their clothing items uniquely different from the rest. The details of their pieces seemed more intricate. The colors, patterns and textures of the items enhanced a feminine vintage, yet modern touch. Recently, I was lucky enough to get to know the shop owner of Lalamagic, a wonderfully sweet girl (also named Grace) who opened this boutique to display her love for vintage inspired things. After trying some of the pieces from her store, I must say that all my expectations have been exceeded. This mint green top has been worn several times to work already as a single piece or used as layering, and the quality is excellent. I’m grateful and happy to be able to form a blog partnership with Lalamagic, and hope that you’ll also be able to experience the beauty of their products too. Right now they are also having an EXTRA 15% off summer sale items.
