After a rather long delay, here comes my next installent of FASHION WEEKEND, where fellow fashion bloggers talk in detail about the shapes, colours and patterns of their weekend garments. Today you'll here from Margaux, an eccentrically-dressed blogger based at 'The Girl Who Wore Everything'. Read on to get a glimpse of her enviably stylish weekend.
1 - It’s Friday night after a long week at work, where are you heading to unwind and what are you wearing on your feet?
On Fridays I am always doing two things: hiding in my bed while planning my weekend! My ‘lazy’ outfit is my Black Juicy Couture sweatpants- I have had them since eighth grade and they are perfectly broken in! I like to tell myself that outfit is still semi-cute. . . even though it really isn’t.
2 - You’ve headed to the newest club in your town and the dress code is over-the-top and as-much-glitz-as-poss, ideally, what striking dress do you choose to wear?
I am a big- HUGE- fan of leopard print. When worn correctly it definitely makes a statement. I also love maxi dresses. My ideal ‘over the top’ outfit would be a Grecian style leopard print maxi dress with gold heels and lots of gold jewellery.
3 - The morning after: the temperature’s dropped yet you have an oh-so-important shopping trip to attend to, what accessories do you throw on to keep warm, comfy but chic?
I’ve been facing the cold-weather clothing dilemma recently since it’s already snowed here in Memphis! Today to combat the cold I’ve got on jeans, a vintage fur cardigan, leopard print ¾ length coat and Vera Wang jewel encrusted motorcycle boots. I am warm and comfy! This outfit is perfect for studying in the library OR an important shopping trip.
4 - Drinks with the girls/boys Saturday afternoon in a trendy retro-like bar and your dressing to make an impression, what vintage themed items do you choose without looking to much like a confused time-traveller?
I would keep my outfit simple, like a little black dress, and add my grandmother’s gorgeous turquoise and gold collar necklace. People give me compliments on it every time I wear it!
5 - Saturday night ends you up at home with a partner or friend with DVD’s and nachos a-plenty. How do you stay comfy without looking like a walking bed sheet?
My hang out outfit is typically skinny jeans, wedges and a top that makes a statement. And polished makeup and hair! It really makes all the difference.
6 - Lunch with the parents is on the agenda for Sunday and its time to tone down your sometimes arguably outrageous fashion (that lands you plenty of odd glances from the elder generation). How do you keep your style footprint on a much more subtle and parent-pleasing outfit?
Although I do typically tone it down, my parents are definitely used to my outrageous outfits. Color blocking is a great way to look trendy and agreeable to the older generation. I am obsessed with my red jeans from Zara and it looks great with a simple black top and cheetah cardigan!
