inspiration picture for october 29: ashley madekwe

the inspiration
ashley madekwe
once again, we have picked an inspiration from an actress that i don't know. that is getting more common as i get older. i'm turning into that lady. "kids these days, i don't even know who half of them are." "you call that music?" "back when i was a kid, a loaf of bread only cost $.75!" ok, those last two aren't true. well, maybe i have made a comment about certain "music" these days...but i never bought bread as a kid, so i have no idea how much it cost.

anyways, ashley madekwe (from Revenge) is rocking a few trends here that we have the urge to try: peplum (don't own any), sparkles (own a lot) and skinny jeans (is there even any other kind of jean?)...we hope you'll play along with us, too!! don't know how to play? click here and then check back on monday to see how everyone wears their inspired outfit!

    the peplum...not so much

  8. Oooo, this is going to be so fun! I like the look of peplums but wouldn't dare wear one.....I'd look like a beachball with an umbrella ruffle!

  9. have you heard of the show "all on the line with joe zee?" he's the creative fashion director for ELLE magazine. in the newest episode, that was on monday, the featured fashion designer created an outfit for ashley.

  10. I just started watching revenge! So I got super excited when I recognized who the actress was lol Love sparkly fashion!

  11. I have no idea who she is but I love her peplum top!


  12. Oooh cute! I am definitely obsessed with the peplum lately. I wish I were on top of things enough to participate haha, maybe one day!!!

  14. I'm turning into that lady too. Every time I see Jaime Chung (I think that's her name) in People Style Watch, I yell at my sister "Who is Jaime Chung!!!" She doesn't know either.

  15. I'm in. I have no peplum shirt though. I do have a peplum skirt. We'll see. Can't seem to find the right peplum shirt. Dawn suitcase vignettes

  16. I really like "Revenge"! When I first started watching, I was like..."Doesn't she have a fashion blog?!" It was kinda funny, because she does. I think it's called Ring My Bell. :)
