I give you:
When it comes to creating Lydia, you really just have to throw out the rule book. Lydia's about self-expression and attention; she loves all eyes on her, and and remember, she's not afraid of repurposing something ugly (like a bonnet) into something that just says LYDIA... And though these are separated into "looks" don't be fooled - Lydia would totes be mix-n-match.
So prepare yourselves: Lydia's style is not for the faint of ♥...
Look #1: I have a feeling Lydia would really like zebra stripes. And hot pink, Lydia would be all about the neon...
dress: 1-shoulder zebra print dress from Forever 21; bag: Daredevil bag, JustFab; shoes: Zebra Pumps, Deb; tights: pink fishnets, Hot Topic; accesories: Fierce bracelet, Lia Sopia, Peacock eyelashes, Paperself, Diamond earrings, Deb
Look #2: Just as Lydia would love hot pink, she's sure to flip for acid green. I think of this as Lydia's lounging around on the weekends look - though I don't there'd be as much "lounging" as "posing"...
dress: Jungle Club Mini from Nasty Gal; bag: Honeydew Fizz bag, JustFab; shoes: Marcella shoes, JustFab; makeup: High-gloss lip color in Big Bang, from Urban Decay; accesories: Neon Feather earrings, Creations By Christen (etsy); nails: Tokidoki nail art stickers, Sephora
Look #3: A girl can't wear dresses all the time, and I think Lydia sometimes likes to get a little rough and tumble; these jean/shirt options are Lydia's concert at a club/walking around the mall look
clothing: Black Marble Destroyed jeans, Wet Seal, Trouble Maker cropped tee, Wet Seal, and Love Me Mesh tank, Wet Seal; bag: baby girl bag, Deb; accesories:Ferocious necklace, Lia Sophia, Stackable chevron ring, Deb; nails: USA! USA! polish by OPI
Look #4: Lastly, Lydia's gotta have a quirky nod to her roots (and by this I mean heritage, and not the roots of her hair, which are beginning to show through the neon dye job...)
dress: Spice Up Your Life mini from Nasty Gal; shoes: Wilma boots, JustFab; accessories: Oceanique bracelet, Lia Sophia. Passage to India necklace, JustFab; nails: Kat Von D high voltage nail lacquer in Sparklehorse
So, what do you think of my Lydia? As...out there as her style is, there are certainly some pieces I'd like to steal...
