Reporting Georgia Girl
I'm Allison, your Georgia Girl. I am a 22 year-old who just graduated from college and I am ready to start my life! After years, and years of school, hours and hours of classes, and late night after late night of studying I am finito and am excited for what lies ahead. I am a born Atlantan and moved all the way to Athens to go to school at the University of Georgia. Definitely the best four years of my life as of today, but now that I'm back in Atlanta, I cannot wait to reacquaint myself with all the things this city has to offer.
I received a phone call the other day from CW69 asking if I was available to help on a video shoot for some fashion tips at Plato’s Closet. Really?!! Me… the fashionista?!! AND at a Plato’s Closet where I’ve never been?!! I’ll make time… even if I don’t have it. Once there, I had the opportunity to dress a few mannequins in what I thought were some great styles. It was a blast! How do I get a full-time job like this? (Hint to anyone out there who can make that dream come true.)
1. Stripes: It used to be that horizontal stripes were unflattering, but if you wear a tight skirt with this pattern, it looks great! Try a high-waisted skirt and tuck in a cute tank top!
2. Scarves: Scarves aren’t just for winter anymore! Brands make some really cute lightweight scarves now that are perfect if you want to add a little pop to an outfit. Try one with a bold color or pattern and wrap it loosely around your neck!
3. Bright pants: Red ankle pants or straight-leg jeans are great for spring. Pair them with an understated top so that they don’t make you look like you’re in a circus! Any bright colors would look great with a pair of flats and a skinny belt.
4. Patterned shorts: It is still possible to look cute and not wear shorts that go up your butt. Slightly longer shorts with a cute print create a fun, preppy feel. Just add a button up shirt and you are ready to head to the lake and take a trip out on a boat. Just like with the bright pants, be sure to wear the shorts with a solid colored shirt!
While I was there, I decided to get a jump start on my fashion wardrobe. Plato’s Closet is a great way to get some of the season’s hottest trends without spending serious money. It’s a great way to sell your old stuff and try out a new look.
