so yeah it was an awesome evening of course there were plenty more outfits but id dint get a photo of them all.

Alhamdulilah and thanks for the invite =)

okay now for some other designers/people whose style influence mine…

let’s just take a moment…

idk who the designer is but it’s probably either Zuhair Murad or Elie Saab but *swoon*

I REALLY LIKE SPARKLES OKAY

if you wanna know more about Zuhair Murad or Elie Saab just go on their websites and check out their fashion ooohhh soo sparkly and just asdfghjkl;

the person that influences my style the most is…

you guessed it (or not) TAYLOR SWIFT

just…

Taylor Swift Elle Canada

i mean

TAYLOR ALLISON SWIFT red carpet styles

i know she wears a lot of Elie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, Naeem Khan, Ralph Lauren, or J. Mendel.

but obviously i can’t afford any of those dresses however tis my dream one day when i marry josh and he goes to the Oscars or some other award ceremony i can buy an elie saab or zuhair murad dress and omg

her cute and casual look is the kind i go for

taylor swift outfits

she really likes stripes now

i wouldn’t say i’m OBSESSED…but…

she’s also advertising for KEDS

taylor swift keds advert

polka dots and stripes are so her thing and are TOTES ADORBS

oh wait what’s that?

why yes those are in fact the same navy polka dot keds i am rocking with my hedgehog socks

also i have that shirt just saying

Taylor Swift RED album art

okay yeah i am obsessed with Taylor Swift. i think she is an incredible person, beautiful on the inside and out. her amazing voice, songs, lyrics, talents, she does so much for charity and everyone thinks she’s horrible for dating so many guys WHY DO YOU CARE? she’s only dated like 6 guys and yeah she falls in love easily SO WHAT? her songs aren’t about GUYS they’re about EMOTIONS. i dnt have time for you haters.

so i don’t wear EVERYTHING SHE DOES but i mean i like her shirts and like try and see what she wears n see if i can copy that in anyway

i DO have my own ‘unique’ style i have to be modest yet fashionable. i mean i’m in no way a ‘fashionable hijabi’ i just like to look nice and be comfy and WARM!

next is JENNIFER LAWRENCE

how adorable is she?

JLaw

and then the just…i mean JLAW is perf she’s funny and down to earth and just enjoys acting. she has a cat and is really friendly and loves her family and stays in watching reality tv and eating. =P

cute and casual

and then the

BAM JLaw BAFTA dress by Christian Dior

she doesnt even like dressing up that much but she’ll look good in ANYTHING

next is the looovveeellyyy EMMA STONE

isn’t she loooovveeelllyyy?

and her casual style too- cool and comfortable (i’m guessing)

she’s just a really wonderful person, so funny and i just love her and Andrew Garfield together.

awesome people

oh next is the AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL DEMI LOVATO

so cool

so beautiful

and just

she’s amazing. she looks so beautiful and HEALTHY and i love her changing hair colours and her ‘edgy’ look with biker jackets aaahh she’s awesome. can’t wait for her new album. =D

look at that just wow

of course i do love EMMA WATSON

EXCUSE YOU WHO SAID GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR ARE UGLY?

obviously people don’t know what they’re talking about GIRLS WITH SHORT HAIR ROCK

Emma Watson Glamour

that purple dress is just asdfghjkl;

all grown up at The Perks of Being a Wallflower Premiere

you know she goes to Brown university in the US.

i think she goes between Brown and Oxford though i’m not 100% sure so don’t take my word for it. but she is beautiful inside and out what with her modelling for Burberry alongside mr Eddie Redmayne and acting of course.

anyways so

ANNE HATHAWAY

i’ve loved her since The Princess Diaries

oh…last but not least

ZOOEY DESCHANEL

damn that Oscar dress is perf

beautiful and elegant

who’s that girl?

IT’S ZOOEY!!!

those big eyes and luscious locks…

Masha’Allah these are all amazingly beautiful women who have a rocking style and are good at what they do.

when i was younger i really liked Alex Russo’s style in Wizards of Waverley place. it was definitely better than the things Hannah Montana wore which were like…really just meh. BUT fashion is a REALLY personal thing…it’s about expressing yourself and your ‘individuality’

following fashion trends may be following the crowd but if you add your own twist and make it your own to suit your style then it becomes unique.

here’s a lovely blog post about one of the most iconic women in fashion
