I was walking past the store Aeropostale and saw a HUGE poster of Chloe Moretz in front! I stopped and stared. Next thing I know, I was at home googling this up, and giving this girl a thumbs up! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXsZH0EFKBk&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLaEaViJt_-j09nLYEBYFiUQ )

The 15-year-old actress has just been named Aéropostale’s celebrity brand ambassador! What does this mean? That Moretz will star in a campaign for the brand, beginning with the 2012 back-to-school season.

Personally, Chloe is just this super adorable and young girl that knows how to have fun with fashion and she just makes anything work because of her outgoing personality. I really found this out through seeing her on the cover of Seventeen magazine and looking at her behind-the-scenes footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ42fYJqlv4

Chloe is what I would define as feminine, fun and chic. She knows how to stay comfy, but still have fun with what she wears.  Below are her promo photo’s with the captions labelled underneath. Check out the site: http://www.aeropostale.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3534619

Breaking hearts-cool as can be in jeans & our moto jacket.

Leaps & Bounds- layers of texture topped with a bold hat.

Laid Back- casual as ever in our jeggings & tee layered with our fleece vest.

All Class- never missing a beat in animal denim print.

Colour Me This- lace leggings rock a classic mohair sweater.

The New Bohemian- our long patterned skirt & cardigan; mix it up boho chic.

What do you think of her? The bohemian and breaking hearts looks are my two personal favourites. I think for such a young girl, she can make it work representing this store~

When you’re passionate about something, there is always a source for that passion. I’m not “passionate” about fashion like I am photography, but I would say I’m inspired and finding a lot of potential with it. A BIG reason I started taking it a bit more serious and prioritizing it in my life a bit more is because of Wendy Nguyen.

Her fashion diary is simply STELLULAR. What I love about her is that, not only does she take risks with her fashion and her taste in clothes, but what she wear’s is affordable and doable. These are very essential to me when I look at fashion now.

I don’t want to have to waste how many paycheques simply to buy one super expensive name brand item to make a super chic outfit that’s so “out-there” that I would never have the confidence to even BOTHER to wear it. You know what I mean? Wendy is realistically stylish. All of her outfits I could see myself possibly wearing, one way or another.

The photographs taken of her are an absolute BEAUT! I’m always inspired by these photo’s to get better at my own photography! I love love love the quality and the genuineness of them!

I found Wendyslookbook through her video “25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes!” (It’s the coolest and cutest video EVER!) Her videos are thoroughly well done, well executed and all creatively unique. I highly recommend simply checking out her site or videos.

I learned a lot from her, not simply about just fashion, but how she truly conveys herself through her appearance. It’s easy to not care about how we look, but at the same time, making an effort to look good and feel good is a fantastic feeling! You can have so much variety with how you dress because styles are endless.

I learned to try new things and not to be afraid to embrace my body in terms of dressing it. I’ve always been very conscious about the fact that I’m tall and skinny. Most people always tell me they wish they had my body, but I always said they shouldn’t say that. I wasn’t always comfortable in my skin, but I’ve really changed. I have a lot of fun creating outfits (layering is my favourite) and finding new looks that suit me (currently obsessed with maxi’s and skirts).

What’s your current muse/inspiration? =)
