Karis's Style

For this post, I decided to interview one of my best friends, Karis. She has an amazing sense of style and eye-catching outfits! Plus, she is a great friend. Everything in her closet is so cute. I think our styles are pretty similar. I hope you enjoy learning more about Karis’s style and seeing some of her outfits. You can definitely expect to see more of her on the blog!

Simply Daring- How would you define your personal style?
Karis- I think my personal style is a mixture of girly, glam, and a bit of classic.
SD- What is your favorite outfit that you currently own?
Karis- My favorite outfit that I currently have is a hot pink racer back tank-top with lace at the bottom, American Eagle dark wash jeans, and a pink and brown leather belt, with Steve Madden brown and gold sandals. I got the shirt and belt from H&M.

SD-  If you could hire any fashion designer to create a whole wardrobe for you who would it be and why?
Karis- It would probably be Michael Kors because I love his clothing and totally adore his accessories. He has the most amazing bags and jewelry! He is currently my favorite designer!
SD- What are your top 5 essential clothing staples?
Karis- My top five clothing staples are my gold necklace that has my initial and the year, a Coach purse, lip gloss, belt, and diamond stud earrings.
SD-  Any trends you wish were never created?
Karis- I would have to say maxi skirts. I’m not a huge fan, although I like maxi dresses a lot!

SD- What do you think is one of the best trends ever?
Karis- I think skinny jeans and high heels look pretty great together. I think it’s a great mix of fun but still classic.
SD-  Favorite season to dress in?
Karis- My favorite season to dress in is spring because you can still wear jeans if you want, or look completely fine in shorts!

SD- Why do you like fashion?
Karis- I like fashion because it is a good way to express yourself, and it’s a good way to show off your personality. I think it’s pretty important to dress well because it’s pretty much people’s first impression of you!
SD- What are your favorite stores?
Karis- My favorite stores consist of Forever 21, H&M, Urban Outfitters, and a lot of the local stores.
SD- Who is your top style icon?
Karis- My top style icon would have to be Isabelle Fuhrman or the Jenner sisters. I love how they can pull of anything from edgy to girly!

First Post!

Hey! My name is Claire, and I’m a thirteen year old girl who absolutely loves fashion. I could spend hours putting together different outfits. I like making my style unique and not just wearing what other girls do. You couldn’t really classify my style under one particular category. I would say that it’s about 50 percent classic. The other half, consists of a mix of girly, vintage, indie and a little bit of glam. Most of my outfits have a simple look with one or two unexpected touches. These can be a fun print, different silhouette or unique accessory. Local boutiques and vintage stores are some of my favorite places to shop. You can pick up the cutest pieces that no one else will have for an affordable price AND benefit your community. My fashion posts will be involving my outfits, my style, my friends’ style, how to wear different pieces, and my celebrity inspiration. Also, I would love it if you emailed me fashion questions that I can answer as blog posts! I’m planning on having some beauty posts, too. Those will include hair, nails, makeup, etc. I’m super excited to be starting this, and I hope you continue to follow my blog!

Here are some pictures I had taken of me at Vintage Violet! It's an amazing store in Fayetteville, and they have all sorts of vintage finds. This is a cool dress that I wouldn't have picked up on my own. But, when they had me try it on and add accessories I fell in love with it. This shows how much earrings and a belt can change things!

Here is an example of one of my outfits:

I love how the shirt is a classic oxford, but it has a fun print and cool colors. The shorts are just white denim cutoffs. I wear those ruffled gold sandals all the time! They go with almost anything. The simple beauty of the white rose earrings drew me to them.
