If there’s one thing I love about Pretty Little Liars, it’s their amazing fashion!

This has to be the most relevant quote since I started watching the series!

I love that each of the girls have their own unique style that really reflects their character quite well. If you didn’t know anything about the show or their characters, you could actually get an idea just from their appearances.

Mandi Line truly is an amazing costume designer! Here’s a video that talks about how she creates each of the girls look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9lgy6GhI0Q Spencer surprised me the most, it was adorable~

Aria is a very vintage like girl! She’s what I would call the thrifter! Her outfits are not things you can just find in a store mannequin, you have to personalize it and truly make it your own!

Hanna truly signifies what an “it” girl is; the one with all the up-to-date fashion that is currently trending! I absolutely love her outfits, and it’s how I would dream of dressing, but I feel like it’s a hard look to maintain. She looks so out-there and ready to go out anytime anyday! Ever her slump days look great!hannah_0

Emily is the character who’s fashion definitely changed over the seasons. While the other girls didn’t change as much, Emily (from my perspective) acquired a more tough badass feel to her looks. I think her signature piece is her leather jacket, it really makes her look edgy. I don’t normally love her outfits as much, but I feel that now she’s gone through so many situations because of A, her look says, “I’m not afraid of you. Bring it.” Funny enough, off-screen from her jock character, Shay Mitchell is actually my favourite person in real life! I mean, HAVE YOU SEEN HER? she’s gorgeous! I only wish she could look like that when she’s playing Emily as well!emily-fields-tea-cup

Spencer has the most sophisticated wardrobe out of all the girls! She’s one of my top two favourites! I always think of an honour roll student/Tommy Hilfiger/American Eagle kinda look to her, which I personally love. This jacket below is one of my favourite pieces that she’s worn. I have a denim jacket similar to this, but the army green really makes it look tough and edgy, which is a nice contrast to her normal look. 0 (1)

Once you start, you cant stop. I’ve never done any crazy complicated DIYs before, I’ve mainly done quick little things that you could think of off the bat of your head. Actually, I don’t know if they can even be CONSIDERED as a DIY because it is either so basic or I just saw it as an easy alternative of how to fix something (most just clothes).

Before, I would NEVER even THINK twice about a pair of scissors in my hands going near ANY of my clothes. However, once you do it that ONE time JUSTTTTTTT to snip away some annoying threads or so, you begin to think.

Hey … I COULD cut off the sleeve since its bothering me so much. It will look like all those other shirts people are wearing now. That would be SO COOL! Ah, its JUST a sleeve, whats it gunna kill me… I’m sure I could just— oh, maybe if I justttttt do this — ohmygosh I HAVE to find that tutorial again on how to do this! Maybe if I look on YouTube and Pinterest … huh, I should do this more often!

Never be afraid to try.

You never know!

Things that are simple can be really fun. It makes you think a bit more creatively. It makes something completely your own. It can also inspire others. So, WHY NOT?

Time sure does fly in the blink of an eye.

This photo made me realize it. I was looking outside, and saw the sunset. Before anything, I was running with my sister out the door, saying “I NEED TO TAKE THIS PHOTO, WE DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME!”

Right after 5 minutes, if not less, the sun was already gone. That moment. Those photos. Gone. It just goes to show you, time does fly by quickly. You need to embrace the moments you have  right now. Make it worthwhile for yourself. Make it memorable.

I sound like I’m preaching, but in a way I kind of am. My photo’s taught me that. Always be aware of your surroundings. You will find a split second of a moment that is beautiful and whether you take that photo or not (or miss the chance, I’m sure we’ve ALL experienced that!), at least embed it in your mind because it happened and simply enjoy it~

Just though I’d share this with you all. Til next time~

xoxo Dana
