#DressUp: Preppy Love Coordinate

It's a new year, and welcome to my first Bookworm 2015 post!

#DressUp is a meme I created last year in which I put together coordinates inspired by covers of books that I really love. Here's my first post, for Murakami's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles, some 12 months ago. Haha.

Just to clarify, this is NOT an annual thing. Haha. I just got so caught up with everything that I almost forgot about this meme.

Preppy Love

This post's book-of-the-momentLang Leav's Love and Misadventure.

I've already mentioned in the past how L&M was very beautiful in person. And I know it's weird calling a book beautiful (aesthetically) but it just is. That's why putting together an outfit just for this ain't really hard. :)

I don't know, but for some reason, the book screams 'dainty' and 'preppy' without even having to open it. Like it would look really, really good next to pearls and doilies. :3  It was weird but got around with the idea and I came up with this^.

Of course, the dominating color would be red. The black and all the lace were just accents that I really think would go well with the outfit. For a little edge, I added that tight black leather skirt. For the preppy feel and all, heels with lace socks did the trick as well as that classic french beret and all that pearls. And for that extra 'oomph', a swipe of Ruby Woo would do it. Add up that gorgeous tone of nail polish and you'd have a very classic look while combining doll-esque elements and that outdor-ish vibe. Wearable? I don't know, but it works for me. :)

What do you think? Comment up and let's talk. You can also join me in this fun meme. Just create your own at Polyvore and just link up! I want to see yours, too. :)

#Welcome2015

source
I promise to lessen my stupidity and quit worrying about things not concrete enough to warrant my attention. I promise to accept things as they are and stop assuming things that can't, and I know for a million million chances won't, really happen. It's time to finally let go of toxic people in my life, and make the effort for those who deserve to stay.

Life is too short to dwell on drama, and I know I've been going on and on about it for the last couple of years... but tiptoeing on the edges of negativity brings no good to anyone.

Here's me wishing for a healthier 2015 (literally and figuratively).

Happy Holidays, and a Prosperous New Year to all!
