Style Spotlight: Lily Collins

Long beach hair, flawless skin, and the most fabulous eyebrows you will ever see? No, it's not a bird OR a plane. It's Lily Collins!

The not-so-newbie-anymore actress has become a fashion icon for girls and women around the country. I mean, anyone who plays opposite to a Twilight boy (especially those of the canine species) is Hollywood Royalty. But Lily has made a name for herself in the industry; and not without a great fashion sense! Here are my five favorite Lily Looks.

#1 This actress knows how to stay warm! I love the all-black vibe, and how she layers all of her pieces. Also, the juxtaposition of the knit and leather textures of her jackets is stunning. A + for pairing the dark cherry lipstick. The sunglasses are a star style must-have (um...obvi!), and they definitely add a layer of drama to the ensemble.
#2 This is by far Lily's most adorable outfit. Her graphic--and collared!--tee gives off a casual vibe, while her denim (I think?) skater skirt gives it an underlining polish. Her sandals deinitely add to the cute factor, as do her tan bag (love it!!). Her sunglasses are to diiiiiiie for as well.
#3 Whoa-ho-ho! Lily has definitely chic-ed it up in this incredible ensemble. This cape/coat over her black dress definitely reminds me of France. Definitely a find! Her shoes are adorably fifties-ish (what with that incredible t-strap), but the black keeps it sophisticated. And the matching red of her lips & her bag? There's only so much adorableness a girl can handle!
#4 This is one of my favorite Lily Looks because of its casualness. I adore her sweater; it's so edgy, yet so cute and girly at the same time! I want it! Her faded grey jeans complement the sweater's color nicely, and those bean boots? To diiiiie foooor! Those are definitely going on next fall's wish list. To top it off, Lily added an ah-dorable fedora. Edgy cute ensemble? Check!
#5 OH EM GEE. That dress=the epitome of cuteness. Something about it is just so perfectly Lily. The collar says "proper", the colors and texture say "classy", and the shape says "fun"! It makes one reminiscent of their childhood days... The tights and black shoes make it even more polished, and that cute little bag reflects 100% class. Don't even get me started on that sock bun.

I can't wait to see more films, articles, and amazing outfits from Lily Collins!

Stay classy, a little sassy, and not too assy. ;)

April Otems!

What is an otem? It's like an item or fashion, but of the moment (OT(e)M--smart, right?). I will be posting my monthly otems. Y'all ready for this? (Da na na nana na nananana na na)

First thing is's spring! You know what that means; florals and bright whites. It's time to dig out your shorts and un-crumple your crop tops! This is not exactly an otem...but it needed to be said.

Secondly is the ethereal, flowery air that fashionistas all over the country are portraying. It started with those flower crowns... The "style"-- if you can call it that -- is dependent on a young and fresh appearance, and emphasizing on the girliness in one's wardrobe. Lots of flowy layers adds a flighty finish.

White has always been "in" (come on, it's white for Pete's sake); but this spring, white is hot hot hot! White nails have been all the rage recently (as long as you use a white with good coverage, is not matte, and doesn't show streak marks. Otherwise you look like Queen Amidala). I love the way white makes your hands look so tan!! Plus it looks cute with a neon pair of flip flops (double the bright!).

And this is a little late, but...jewel tones jewel tones JEWEL TONES! They're so gorgeous! I know they're more for fall, but fashion is not about rules, sweetie. I took this shot at a local dance festival, where one of the dancers was wearing a high low emerald skirt (swoon). She was reading The Great Gadsby; it was the perfect shot. So I creepily took a picture and ran (that's why it's so awkwardly grainy--sorry!). It was for fashion! I swear!
And finally, these crazy prints I'm seeing' everywhere! Not just on a top; jackets and leggings and skirts (oh my!). I just recently purchased a patterned pair of chino shorts (floral, of course). I'm also loving printed jackets! There's this one at Target that is a leather blazer with a loud floral print and I WANT IT (Ssh! It's a secret).

So that's it for my April Otems. I hope everyone has a restful and colorful weekend.
Stay classy, always sassy; but not too assy. ;)

Hey Guys!

So...yeah. This is just me.
Hi! I'm Jade. I'm a California Girl in high school, who is trying to make her dreams come true. I want to be a Fashion News Journalist at a major magazine (TeenVogue; you're mine!). I figured blogging and YouTubing would help me get there, so all things trendy, cute, or fashion will be here!
Oh, and my blog is called "Quirk It" because my style is quirky and unique.
Welcome to my blog :D.
