How the Civil Rights Movement Influenced Style

as my family and I toured The Kings Center Memorial over the weekend I begun to take note of how style was integrated during such a time when African Americans were fighting to be treated fairly.

Despite the turmoil, people still found a way to express their individual style. From marching in the streets of Alabama to Rosa Parks being finger printed in a tailored fitted skirt, their circumstances didn’t deter their style of dress. Have you ever wondered how such an era for African Americans still finds it way to influence style today.

i,myself like Fedoras and a pencil skirt but I also enjoy street style with rugged jeans and boots.

Style,Inspiration & Pinterest

I freaking love browsing Pinterest to see all the new photos  that have been uploaded. Anytime I want to find inspiration my go to place is definitely Pinterest. I find pictures of fashion, beauty, art and culture . Lately, interior design and landscape pins have been one of my simple pleasures. Pinterest provides me with inspiration to revamp my overly stuffed closet or get outside and play.   Honestly, I think I have an addiction to it. My heart races as I  spend hours on end going through picture after picture  to see what  will load next.  Am I the only person who experience this? lol…I like to look at pins other people have posted along with the collaboration by others.

Today, I will be sharing some of my favorite Pinterests pins I found.

Magazine Makeover: Lucky Magazine September 2012 Issue

I am excited to announce a new segment to TheAbsoluteMost:Magazine Makeover.

Magazine Makeover will introduce statement pieces I’m inspired by while  turning those inspirations  into my own individual style  using unique pieces I find during  my  shopping excursions at various locations:  boutiques, vintage stores and some of my favorite thrift shops around the city.

Starting with the September 2012 of Lucky Magazine,

 

I decided to start this week off with a casual Fall look by Lucky’s own Creative Director, Jana Gale in this September 2012 issue.  She starts with a statement blouse, which I am sure you all have , paired  with a sweater, skirt and peep-toe Mary Janes.

To give summer a farewell goodbye, I  chose to keep it  colorful  with a pretty-in pink  Loft sweater paired with a flower-print blouse  I initially stumbled across  at TJ Maxx for $15.99, but later found it at  Value Village for $3.49. Now, how cool is that. I found it yesterday during their half off Wednesdays.

My navy blue pencil skirt made putting together my outfit even more effortless.  You can never go wrong with classic black MaryJane pumps so I finished the look with these lovelies. Remember, accessories plays a huge role in your overall outfit. Accessories says everything you want to know about an outfit.  I went with a simple, yet chic sterling silver bangle and vintage watch.

It was so much fun putting this outfit together.  The best thing about vintage and thrift shopping is finding pieces you love for less. It is definitely an adrenaline rush for me and I enjoy sharing my unique findings with others.
