Get the Look: Biker Chic

This is part one of, what will hopefully be, a long series dedicated to getting the looks I’ve styled for my own shoots.  I’ll be concentrating mostly on wardrobe, but at times will toss in makeup as well.  I’ll be posting a shot from the actual shoot, laying out the wardrobe for you, and linking pieces that are available online (at the time of writing), or alternative pieces that can be used to create a similar look.

Look 1: Biker Chic
This look was inspired by a look I wore for Forever21 in the 2009 VOP Fashion & Rock show.  When the photographer let me know he had a motorcycle he was interested in shooting with, I knew I had to use elements from that outfit for the shoot–it was just a perfect fit.

Lusting: Poncho & OTK Boots

Ponchos are coming back in style, and over-the-knee (OTK) boots are hot right now.  I love the idea of combining the two with a splash of metallic leggings, a cute bright crochet beret, and being stylish, comfy and cozy as the weather gets cooler.  Here’s how I’d do it:

otk-ponchoThe poncho, leggings and beret are all from Forever21, and the boots are from CutesyGirl.  The shirt is on the Forever21 website, but I have plenty of long sleeved black shirts.  The whole look, minus the shirt, is less than $70!

I’ve sworn off buying stuff though, so this look is just on my Chrismanukkah list 😦  Unless, of course, you’re looking to shoot with me and can’t afford my rates.  I’m always up for a little TFWardrobe! 😉 Wouldn’t this look be cute romping around in fallen leaves?
