OUTFIT OF THE MONTH – June 2012

Ahhhh I love this boho summer look!! In most cities in the US June is the beginning of summer when things are just starting to warm up. It’s your last chance to get away with wearing those super cute jeans you just made from watching our Viva Glam DIY video! The key to this look is lots of layering. Layering adds texture, depth and interest to your outfit. Here we’ve layered a lace body suit with a soft, semi-sheer cotton vest. The pants are super flared and we’ve added a pair of deep brown leather wedges to add just the right amount of height so the jeans aren’t dragging the ground. The accessories are the final touch to our look. The hat is a rich brown that helps balance the light colors in the rest of the outfit. We’ve also added a turquoise and sterling bracelet and ring to give the outfit a slight accent of color. It all comes together to make a perfectly polished outfit for this summer!

My passion and love for fashion and all things femme started at a very young age. Of course young girls always have someone to look up to growing up and for me (as silly as it may sound) it was my grandmother! I’m telling you this woman was the ultimate fashionista. So much in fact that I still have on at least one piece of hers on everytime I leave the house. You’ll come to notice that I have an endless passion for all things vintage and now you’ll understand why! My fashion sense and style was also heavily influenced by the years of modeling I did in my teens growing up. I frequented NYC and also travelled to Japan to pursue a career in the industry. Although I eventually chose academia over the glamour of the modeling industry the fashion tips and advice that I took away from that industry are invaluable. That brings me to where I am today! A recent graduate of The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in LA, I am currently working on my swimwear line “Lela Pearce” and writing for my personal blog Blonde and Hound as well as contributing as Fashion Editor for Viva Glam Magazine! I am very excited and honored to be sharing my personal fashion advice, tips, and picks with you through Viva Glam Magazine. In the words of the infamous Coco Chanel, “Fashion fades, only style remains the same”. I hope Viva Glam Magazine can help encourage new looks and ideas for your personal style!
