“Hi! I was just invited to do makeup backstage for the first show of fashion week! I'm so excited because makeup is my passion and I really want to make a good impression. I was wondering if you could help me find something to wear? I'm also 15 if that helps? Seriously, thank you so much!!!!”

—Anonymous

That’s so cool! I want to go Fashion Week so bad. Makeup is something I love too, I want to work in theater as a makeup artist someday. And I want to have a runway show with fashions inspired by the blog. So many dreams

Anyways,

I defiantly recommend something easy to move around in. It also depends on your style. Wearing your hair out of the way is a good idea, too. I really like high ponytails, milkmaid braids, and fishtail braids (I have really long hair, though.) Also, don’t wear too high heels! You’ll be on your feet all day, after all. 14-18 is a great age for fashion, because you can have so much fun with it!

for an ask

A nice blouse and fitted jeans, with ankle boots and delicate jewelry looks professional, but is really comfortable. I also don’t recommend wearing too much arm/hand jewelry, like rings and bracelets.

If you rather wear a dress, a fun print with a blazer over it is cute too.

for an ask

I hope this helps! Let me know how everything goes.

“So I bought black high waisted leggings with stars on them and i don't know how to wear them. Same with some print leggings (also high waisted and from Aeropostale). Could you help me? Xxx”

—Anonymous

Hello! I used the tights in three outfits:

The First: A plain dress and ankle boots, the Second: Over-sized sweater and long necklace, the Third: Graphic Tee and cardi. For leggings, it’s important that your top covers your bottom. I know that sounds weird, but trust me… Also, I love aeropostale’s new clothes!

For the polyvore version of the image

fashion-by-the-book:

Hello everyone! Exciting news, I’m teaming up with Rachel M. Wilson, author of Don’t Touch (out September 2nd) to host a giveaway inspired by her novel! Here’s a message from her about the contest:
"Don’t Touch is the story of Cadence Finn, a talented actress who’s desperate to play Ophelia in her school’s production of Hamlet, but she finds this challenging because of her newly developed fear of touch—especially since the guy playing Hamlet is “far too touchable.”Theater kids are known for being bold when it comes to fashion, and Caddie is no exception. She and her former bff Mandy used to start fashion trends all the time, so when Caddie buys a pair of lavender evening gloves to protect her skin, she passes them off to Mandy as an artistic quirk. In honor of Caddie’s fashion flair, we’re holding a giveaway! Two winners will receive a signed ARC of Don’t Touch and a pair of gloves like Caddie’s!Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to use Polyvore to create an outfit inspired by the cover of Don’t Touch OR a look for a modern-day Ophelia.”
Sounds fun, huh? I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with! Here’s the rules and details:
Make your outfits original!
Post them to tumblr to enter them!
Contest is open in USA AND Canada only.
You have August, 17th-30th to enter.
You can enter both categories, but you can only win one. 
I will be judging the cover outfits, and Rachel will be judging the Ophelia ones.
Please make sure to use the tags #don’t touch fashion #fashionbythebook and #don’t touch so we can find your outfits! Also, make sure to use those tags first so they show up. Submitting them to me works too!
