Passion for Fashion

Chapter Written Solely by CeCee

I’m as shy as they come, but when it comes to my day-to-day threads, I’m a bold, fearless fashionista.  I guess you could classify my look as boho-chic laced with a few punked out accessories.  I know, I know – it totally goes against the bespectacled nerd girl concept, but that’s the brilliant thing about fashion – it expresses the wild child within and makes my gear buzz-worthy!  (I actually attribute my edgy trend tastes back to my Catholic school days, when the required oxford blouse, plaid skirt, and rosary beads forced me to think outside the box.)

Now the thing about fashion is you really don’t have to break the bank to be swank.  Except for the occasional baby-sitting or tutoring job, I don’t have a big cash stash myself but still manage to throw together clever little ensembles.  Sure I shop at Abercrombie and Gap like the rest of the masses, but I also find a lot of spunky stuff at the Good Will and other thrift stores, like belts purses, military jackets, etc.  So yeah – it’s okay to get a little daring – especially when it comes to the trimmings.  And yes, you’ll get an occasional eye role or a mumbled snarl from a S.M.G. (Super Mean Girls), but they’re probably just jealous because you’re rockin’ it and they’re not.  After all, no one respects an Aberzombie clone who’s just following the trendies!

How to Rock It Hip Tips:

♥ Accessories rule
♥ Pair a pair of Chucks with a scarf
♥ Layers, layers, layers
♥ Try a low slung chunky belt
♥ Enhance any outfit with vintage jewelry and/or dangly chandelier earrings – love that stuffy Victorian bling!
♥ Mix and match colors and patterns but sparingly
♥ Try a flowy skirt with leggings and flats

FASHION DON’T’S – I don’t believe in the fashion police but there are a few no-no’s everyone should adhere to for the sake of mankind and world peace.  In my honest and humble opinion, the following are universal fashion flubs i.e., not a good look for anyone:

♥ Acid washed jeans
♥ Ruffles
♥ Heels you can’t walk in
♥ Black Lipstick
♥ Yellow
♥ Too low low-riders
♥ Fishnet
♥ Shoulder pads
♥ Thong Peek-a-boos
♥ Hairy legs with skirts or shorts

1) Stay clear of sheer
2) If it don’t fit, it’s gonna split
3) Too bright ain’t right
4) If you wear it, rock it!

CeCee’s Back to School Shopping List

1. Black Leggings
2. Platforms in any color
3. Flared denim jeans
4. Black skinny jeans
5. Faux leather tote
6. Mary Janes
7. Denim vest
8. Burgundy glam punk blazer
9. Neon pink Chuck Taylors
10.  Strategically ripped vintage concert tees
11.  Gypsy broom skirt
12.  Chandelier and hoop earrings
13.  Lace up combat boots
14.  Gold and silver bangles
15.  Purple knit beret
16.  Black trapeze dress
17.  Flannel tunic

(The trick is to strike a balance between the trends and classics, sprinkled with your own personal touches.)

SCARY SITCH BY CECEE – Know your fashion limits and the school dress code policy.  Once during my Catholic school days, I tied my white oxford into a navel knot halter a la Britney Spears, got five demerits, three Hail Mary’s, and a lecture from Sister Eugenie on the virtues of modesty.  YIKES!
