I've been aware of the British TV show Skins for quite a while now but I hadn't watched it until yesterday when I was sucked in to a marathon of the teen drama on BBC America.
I loved it! It's not Gossip Girl but it is far superior to other teen shows plus I found a new style muse in character Cassie Ainsworth (played, and styled, by Hannah Murray)!
From Victorian-era lace and broaches, sailor vests, and minidresses with layers of thigh highs and tights Cassie has an eccentric sense of style.
How can you add even more drama to a stay in a psychiatric ward? Why with a big straw hat, white Warhol shades, and sheer red lipstick of course!
Serious conversation? A lingerie top with leopard print tights may not seem like the obvious choice but you're sure to have the upper hand.
Need to make a dramatic entrance? When we first met Cassie she was decked out in a gold shift dress with a men's tuxedo jacket complete with long tails- just fabulous!
Pull out all your lace pieces, school boy blazers, ripped jeans, eclectic screen-printed tees, and flapper style headbands and long length gloves, please!
I think we should all just mix some mod with some bohemian just like Cassie only lets try to avoid the self-destructive behavior okay?
