Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like BTS “WINGS” Concept Photos

Leah, where have you been???

I apologize for not posting yet this year, and I also apologize for waiting several months to do an outfit series related to BTS’ latest album/music video. To be honest, I’ve been busy with traveling and work and school, and I also just kind of hate the style BTS has going on right now. So I’ve been hesitant to recreate anything. But, well, duty calls, and over the weekend, I finally manned up and shot an outfit.

The outfit you are about to see is based entirely upon the WINGS concept photos. An outfit (or outfits, idk yet) for “Blood Sweat & Tears,” BTS’ latest music video, will be coming later.

I doubt there will be many posts in these two series, but we will see. (Sorry in advance, but it’s kind of hard to style when you hate the clothing you’re working with.)

Now, without further ado, let’s begin.

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like BTS “WINGS” Concept Photos

The following images were the inspiration for this post:

So many, I know.

And now here is what my version looks like:

It is based on V’s outfit and Jungkook’s shoes (if you couldn’t tell, lol).

The reason I chose V’s outfit to recreate was simply because it is the most do-able. It involves no fake pajamas [which are gross], and the shades of fabric aren’t too flashy for everyday use. It’s neutral yet stylish and fun, and it also uses a bomber jacket, which we all know how I feel about bomber jackets. ❤ ❤ ❤

I used my sparkly oxfords that sort of look like Jungkook’s loafers to capture the funkiness of everyone’s shoes, sans slippers [cause fake slippers are also gross]. I think they add a wonderful pop to an otherwise bland outfit.

Aren’t they great??

And that is all! As I’m sure you noticed, I didn’t look at the camera once in these photos. That’s because, when I took them, my eyes were dilated like you wouldn’t believe, so I physically couldn’t open them outside. Gotta love eye appointments.

But yeah, as always, thank you for reading, and in case you want to see more, you can check out the last Bangtan Style post I did here.

Until next time ❤

Holiday Makeup: Red Lip

img_9801

There is absolutely nothing like a red lip around the holidays. Why? Because it’s fun and bright and fresh while also being incredibly simple and easy to do. It’s probably the look that I wear most around the holidays, with shades ranging from deep oxblood to bright scarlet. The possibilities are endless, yet every one is equally stunning.

img_9805

Here’s a peek at all the products I used to create the look you see above (and below). (Sorry for the bad lighting.) The specific lipstick is Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw. It’s an incredibly pigmented red that goes on smooth and lasts forever without really drying your lips (although I always put lip balm on throughout the day, so that might also help).

If you don’t have one of her liquid lipsticks, though, you’re definitely missing out. They’re amazing.

But yeah. If you’re stumped as to what makeup you should try this holiday season, definitely consider a simple face contrasted with nice, bold lips. It kills it every time. You can also amp up the look with some neutral shadow and cat liner, as well as dewy highlighter.

And that is all! Thanks so much for reading, and have a lovely day.

Until next time ❤

 

The Perfect Winter Cardigan

What says battling the cold more than a giant red sweater with a big Canadian maple leaf?

I think nothing.

(Excuse my lack of makeup. Please and thanks.)

Obviously, as you can tell by all the green, I photographed this many months ago. However, due to a ridiculously busy semester at school, I never actually got the chance to post it. So it’s just been chilling in the drafts folder of my blog since September. Good job, Leah.

Anyway, since every road where I live is currently covered in an inch of ice (which means I can’t go to work yet this morning), let me tell you about the wonderful sweater you see above.

I bought it in Epcot, actually, because I love Canada and always have to purchase something from the Canadian pavilion each time I’m in Disney World. At the time I bought it, I didn’t think I would be able to wear it too often, but it actually turns out to be a better looking garment than I thought.

img_9677

I’m not going to lie, though: I haven’t worn this sweater since I photographed it. I think it might just be a little too colorful for my typical palette of black and navy and gray, but now that it is getting ridiculously cold out, I should be better about putting it on, especially around my house.

And especially because it’s such a festive shade of red! #Christmas

And that is all! Thanks for reading, and I hope to talk to you again soon.

Until next time ❤

My New Hair

About a month and a half ago, I went from looking like this:

img_5586

(With hair all the way down to my butt)

To looking like this:

FOR BLOG.png

With hair stopping at my collar bone.

They cut about 10 inches off, and it feels so, so weird. I haven’t had hair this short since high school, and now that it’s back, I don’t really know what to do. It dries quickly, it’s easy to untangle, I can style it. It’s definitely a nice change from before, but it’s definitely something I’m going to have to get used to.

However, I’m sure you’re all wondering what made me do it. Honestly, I’m not sure. Two weeks ago, I had a conversation about how I will never have short hair again because I just don’t like the way it looks on me. But then I went and chopped it all off. I’m a strange one sometimes.

I think, though, that this is going to be a really nice change from the normal, and I’m excited for that.

(Although I’m not excited that my phone broke and I no longer have any of the pictures that I was actually going to put in this post. *cries*)

And finally, to address the most important thing: I AM DONE WITH SCHOOL!

Christmas break officially started at 3:33 p.m. yesterday afternoon, when I finished my last final. Just two more semesters to go, guys. Just two more semesters to go.

So there will be many, many more posts up on here in the coming weeks. Yay!

But now I have a doctor’s appointment. Lucky me. Thanks for reading, and have a blessed day.

Until next time ❤

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like Jungkook in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos

I might actually have a heart attack by the end of this semester. Also, I better hurry my butt up with this ‘Young Forever’ crap, cause ‘Wings’ is dropping in, like, a week and a half. Ughhhhh.

So excited for new music, but I have no time for new posts.

Anyway, tonight we continue this series. To see the last post in it, click here, and to see the next one once it is up, click here. Now please enjoy this one.

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like Jungkook in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos

Okie dokie, here is the inspiration behind my look:

And here is the actual look I came up with:

dsc_1088

dsc_1092

It’s equestrian chic, just like the original but a little more wearable and feminine. And with the shirt layered underneath, it’s the perfect way to transition into fall.

dsc_1085

For a more casual take on it, feel free to replace the kitten heels with flats or loafers.

dsc_1108-2

dsc_1096

And also feel free to add a pop of navy with a cardigan, blazer, or jacket, especially if it’s cold outside. I would have done so myself, but the day I photographed this was freaking hot. So no outerwear for me.

dsc_1132

And that is all! I really like this look, even though it’s not necessarily my own personal style. I hope you enjoyed it, too.

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like Jimin in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos

I went to Disney, started school, and broke my thumb. Things have been very busy in my life lately, hence why I haven’t been posting very often. Apologies, as always.

Anyway, let’s continue this Bangtan Style series, cause it’s currently the only thing I have photographed.

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like Jimin in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos

A’ight, here is the inspiration behind my outfit:

Wow, those photos got really distorted. Thanks, WordPress.

Anyway, I absolutely despise this look. To my core, 100 percent, this is the worst thing anyone has ever put on. I don’t care if it’s Gucci. Just cause it’s designer, it doesn’t mean it’s cute.

But I can’t discriminate, right? I mean, if the stylist liked the outfit enough to put it on Jimin, then other people out there probably like it, too.

So here is how to recreate it, even despite my feelings. (Warning: Drastic changes were made.)

I ixnayed the beret and kept the denim, red, and white by swapping out the ’90s tie jacket and weird shorts for an oversized shirt and circle skirt.

This created what I feel is a much more attractive, wearable outfit that’s perfect for going anywhere during the current transition from summer to fall.

And it’s comfy. Not saying that the one Jimin has on isn’t, cause I don’t know about that. But this outfit? Comfort gold.

And that is all!

Wow, I can’t believe I actually had time to do a blog post today. The world must be ending or something.

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like J-Hope in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos [2]

I started writing this in Disney and then got so distracted/exhausted that I just couldn’t finish. So here it is now, two weeks too late. Apologies.

To see the last post I did in this Bangtan Style series, click here. To see the next one, click here once it is up.

Now let’s get started!

Bangtan Style: How to Dress Like J-Hope in BTS’ ‘Young Forever’ Concept Photos [2]

Okay, so here is the inspiration behind this second J-Hope look.

Okay, so I’m not gonna lie: It’s a little odd. But I just absolutely love baby pink with forest green, so I couldn’t simply ignore his outfit and mash it up with the rest of the shorts suits featured in their shoot. Doing so would have been a sin.

But I also couldn’t find enough heart to, once again, clothe myself in a shorts suit. So this is what occurred:

Instead of going for a shorts suit, I decided to keep the color scheme and professionalism of the original outfit the same while opting for something more feminine and wearable: the dress you see above (and below, lol).

To recreate J-Hope’s look for yourself, I would suggest doing the same: Don’t worry about getting a green shorts suit to pair with some frilly pink blouse and super lacey oxfords. Just get the colors and general vibe down, and you’ll be perfectly fine.

And that is all! I apologize for how short this post is, but I’m about to leave for a meeting, so I can’t waste time elaborating.

Thanks so much for reading, though! And once again, to see the last post I did, click here, or click here for the next one once it is up.
