INSPIRED BY: CHER HOROWITZ (CLUELESS, 1995)

Hey there, today I want to talk you about some news on the blog. 
Daily and weekly, I feel so inspired by all the good audiovisual content that surrounds me. I’m talking about all the movies, photography, TV series that sometimes turn to be a piece of art. They’re such a great source of inspiration for me as a blogger and photographer, and I think it is good to take advantage of every experience in our life in order to create good things to share with others. 
There are lots and lots of good pieces in the movie and photography world, so why not use them as the “genesis” of our own creations? 
For all of these reasons, I’ve decided to start this new section called “Inspired by”, where I’ll share with you which are some of my favorite movies, characters, and even singers or bands, trying to emulate their style, talking a bit about the context they were born in and how their style or behaving has an impact on me. 
I wanted to start the first chapter of this path with the incredible and coolest fashionista Cher Horowitz (played by Alicia Silverstone), from the movie Clueless (1995). Cher is defenitely one of my favorite characters of all time. Not only because of her style, but because she has a unique personality. Let's be honest, she's not that intelligent and sometimes she can be a bit annoying too, but I think that, in the context the movie was released, she breaks some cliches. 

Let me explain myself: lots of teenage movies were made during the decades of the 80s and 90s, and they all had one thing in common: mean girls. They were usually rich, beautiful and popular girls who made everyone else feel bad about themselves in order to increase their popularity or show others who had the power in high school. We all know at least one of those, they can exist even in real life. But Clueless didn't show that side of the rich and beautiful girls of high school. Actually, the main characters, Cher and Dionne, are so popular, but they don't act like bullies, for the contrary, Cher has a big heart and she's a really kind person, she just wants to help people, and that is what she tries to do during the whole movie.

Of course I don't agree 100% with all the plot. There are some facts I don't like about the story, because after all, she is still being a superficial girl whose main purpose is to buy clothes and traces a plan to seduce a man, wich is not bad, but it's something that doesn't fit in my 2017 mind. Anyways, she cares about her friends and family and she has always good intentions with people, so that makes her a really lovely human. 
What I love the most about Cher is that she's a selective woman. When it comes to love, she's not settling down for anyone because she wants to find the right person, and she wants to really be secure about him before getting into the "action", you know. I think everyone should do that, everyone should have an idea of the type of person they want to be with and not settle down for someone because of the fear of being alone. Being picky it's not bad or mean, it's knowing our value and having self-esteem.

What's really remarkable about Clueless is its trendsetting style. It really caused a big impact in the fashion of the moment. The yellow power suit is Cher's most iconic outfit. But we can also see the "slip dressing" trend, athleisure, chokers everywhere, co-ords, argyle patterns and even the cheesiest "pretty in pink" style.

The 90's in its pure state!

LIGHT ENCOUNTERS

I love light effects in photography as much as I love little cute red dresses. They fit in any situation, that's why I couldn't stop myself from taking a look at this new shop called Gamiss. I just discovered it, and the first thing I did was go find similar pieces for the upcoming season. We may not be able to wear red short dresses, but we can apply that pattern to sweaters and cool jeans to create a cool retro indie vibe for Fall. This are some of the pieces I found that totally match my style, because I only pick things I am 100% sure about:

I totally love the pattern on this skirt. I think even though it's a mini skirt, which is a piece meant to wear in Summer, the colors and embroidery of this one make it perfect for Fall and Winter. I would probably wear it with a high neck sweater and a pair of high black boots to create a really cute outfit for the colder days.
I think this would be a good piece to wear with that embroidered skirt. It looks warm and really flowy, which is a fact that I really appreciate since I don't really like tight clothing. Mostly during winter, I like to wear warm clothes that don't necessarily limit my movements and make me feel like a big snowball covered in layers of clothing. I like to keep it loose, you know. If you agree with me in that, then flare sleeves are for you too!
Now matter the year or moment in my life, I will never get tired of baseball jackets. They are a classic for me, and they're always in the shops. I've had two of them in my entire life, but maybe this is a good time to include another one to my collection. I also love how those two little embroidered flowers add a preppy touch to it, which makes a difference from the other ones I bought before.


NEW FINDS: YOINS.COM


I also want to seize the occasion to talk you about another one of my recent discoveries in the fashion world. This shop is called Yoins.
I ran into it while I was looking for a pair of booties for Fall and Winter, but my whishlist increased after I scrolled a bit in their "fashion casual dresses for women” section. 
For the past two or three weeks I’ve been loking for new basic stamples to renew my closet for the next season. I think that a good bunch of basic pieces matched with a genuine eye for fashion can lead to really cool combinations. 
Inspired by Cher in Clueless (one of my favorite characters ever, and I don’t really know why) I also went to take a look in their  "co-ord sets for women" section. Co-ords are a really easy way to match the top and bottom of your outfit with pretty much any effort. In my case, that is perfect for lazy college days. 



So to sum up, I fell in love with every bit of them and I encourage you to go take a look. They always make big sales and offer lots of good disccounts, a fact that makes me love them even a bit more, to be honest.
