*I had a feeling Gray wasn’t completely pleased with this challenge so I got inspired to make my Round #2 Style Icon tribute to Kate Middleton a little bigger and more opulent like her wedding on April 29, 2011. One time when I was wearing this skirt and cardigan,I was told that I looked like Kate Middleton so I figured they would be appropriate to add to the white t-shirt I was given in which I drew a British flag/crown design on using the fabric markers in my trunk.
For round two of ABC Family’s Jane By Design Style Challenge, I was given the assignment of creating a design on a t-shirt that represents my style icon or the person from which I gain most of my fashion inspiration from. Anyone who reads my blog on a regular basis, knows just how much Kate Middleton’s style and story inspire me. So it’s easy to say that the Duchess of Cambridge is truly my style icon. They say London isn’t as fashionable as Paris or Milan, but I always find myself drawn to British designers. My favorites include Mulberry, Ted Baker, and of course Alexander McQueen. Kate Middleton is the perfect person to represent her quite fashionable nation.
When people find themselves amongst wealth and power, they tend to lose their personal style by wearing what they think they should be wearing instead of what makes them who they are. The opposite is true with Kate. I have a deep admiration for her classic simple style and the fact that it has stayed classic as she became royalty. No matter if you’re Team Kate or look up to another style icon such as Audrey Hepburn, Madonna, or even your mom or favorite aunt, share your own style icon and why they inspire you on the Jane By Design Facebook Page. Don’t forget to say Aspiring Socialite sent you.
Tune into the premiere of Jane By Design on ABC Family Tuesday Jan. 3rd at 9/8c!
