Every now and then, we catch wind of someone saying something fantastic about us. This blog from Seventeen Magazine (ahh, Seventeen Magazine. Suddenly, summers spent on the porch with a glass of lemonade in one hand and the latest Seventeen mag in the other, come rushing back) came just last week and well, we’d like to gush about it:
Welcome to my first blog post! I’m Madisen (Maddie for short). I was chosen as Seventeen’s Style Council “vintage” style. So as you know from my bios, I’m just like every other girl — I love clothes. What I find always fun is discovering new little shops or stores to get cool stuff that not a lot of people have or know of yet. I love bringing trends back and creating new ones.
So by keeping up with my posts I can always let you know when I find cool places, or even online stores, that are just as amazing and inexpensive. Sometimes with school and work, I find myself not having a minute to take a stroll to the mall or to cute stores, so I do most of it online. Some of my favorites include monstervintage.com, fredflare.com, and unique-vintage.com.
A fun tip to remember before being tempted is always, I mean always, hit the sale rack! You’ll be surprised what people don’t scoop up. I like to think of it as “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” I think one of my main influences is living in New York City — the people, the scenery, everything around me. However, since I’m from the South, where I’m surrounded by beautiful valleys and mountains, that inspires me to bring the inner girly, traditional side out in my clothes. I’m also obsessed with looking at my old family albums and pictures from certain times, which is so great because you can take a modern outfit and style and throw in a traditional hairstyle or makeup.
Oh, and you all love Facebook I assume, as do I; well, recently there’s this amazing Website where you can rate people’s styles from all over the world. It’s called lookbook.nu and it’s a great way to be inspired by all people around the world without actually having to travel!
I cannot wait to hear back from y’all and share fun news on new styles, trends at your school, Websites, or even what inspires you! XO, Maddie 🙂
