MFQ (Morning Fashion Quote): Alexander McQueen

 Need a style pick-me-up?—especially when an all out shopping spree isn’t on the menu. Write down this quote, tape it to your closet door and it’ll pretty much guarantee a good day. 

"It’s a new era in fashion - there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together."




— Alexander McQueen (British fashion designer)

I ♥ This Magazine! (This Month's Magazine Choice): Seventeen Magazine

Every month I'll post different 'This Month's Magazine Choice' choices.

Here's whats in store in SEVENTEEN Magazine this month. And why you should go pick up your own copy now!

Gracing the cover of SEVENTEEN Magazine this month is Vampire Diaries star, Nina Dobrev.Check her out below!

On the cover Nina is wearing a fuchsia and magenta-colored knit turtleneck sweater with matching knitted scarf along with a wide-brimmed, red leather skirt. Matched with a multicolorful, tribal necklace that serves as an accessory.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Her Character's Abusive Relationship In The Perks Of Being A Wallflower—
“It's a really heavy topic, and I hope my character gives girls some perspective. I think more than anything, girls allow abuse to happen because they’re embarrassed it happened and that they allowed it to happen. They know it's not right. There's no excuse for it. That’s why it’s so important to show girls that they can admit that it's not their fault.”

On Her Relationship With Vampire Diaries Co-Star, Ian
“The first time I was on the cover of Seventeen, the cover line said 'Nina: Why she wouldn’t date any of her co-stars.' And then cut to two years later…it's funny that I said that, but you know what? It was honestly what I believed at the time. I didn’t want to be dating one of my costars—my goal on the show was to be professional. But sometimes you can’t help who you have a connection with, and you can only fight it for so long—which I did for a really, really long time.”

On Dealing With The Pressure Fame Can Bring
“I try not to read best-dressed lists or anything like that. For every good thing, there will often be a not-so-nice thing people would say. My mom sends me lots of messages like, 'You’re standing next to Kate Winslet! Oh my god, I love Kate Winslet!'”

On Being A Kid At Heart
“I want to go to Harry Potter Land! I actually should text Emma Watson to see if she can hook us up with a backstage pass or something. That’s the perk of doing a movie with Emma called The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.”

On The Importance Of "Girlfriend Time"
“Girls weekend with the Vampire Diaries girls has become a big deal! It's our quality time. It's so much fun to unload and not feel guilty complaining or talking about your insecurities or bonding over things that you thought you were on your own about. When we get there, we go to dinner or cook dinner together, watch movies, lie on the beach, and take tons of pictures."
