I love girls with unique style. Lily Collins doesn't disappoint! To me, Lily is near the top of my fashion icon list next to Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Camilla Belle. 

I have gathered some of my favorite photos of Lily to share with all of you!

She is starring in Mirror Mirror coming out in March 2012 beside Julia Roberts. Lily plays Snow White. 

Enjoy the fashion inspiration of the day!

Footloose

This weekend I went out and took photos with Samantha Miller who completed a interview with me a few weeks ago!

I had two different looks and so did she. I will be posting her looks in a seperate post with her winter wishlist for 2012.

One of my outfits was my red Frye Taylor cowgirl boots. They are the exact same boots as the ones in the new Footloose movie! Lucky me! Thank you Endless.com! 

I paired the red boots with black leggings and a black and white leather jacket. I was trying to go for a retro cowgirl look. 


What do you think of my new favorite boots?

-Hillary

 Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Linda Hamouie, I am 17 years old, and I live in Houston, Texas.

  Describe your personal style and its influences / inspiration. My personal style is mainly focused on the idea of taking classic and traditional looks and putting an urban twist to them. My inspiration comes from Marc Jacobs (designer), Lady Gaga (musician), Scott Schuman (fashion blogger/photographer), and Bambi Northwood-Blyth (model).

  What do you want to do/accomplish in the next 10 years?
  In the next 10 years I want to graduate from a top fashion school, intern at Teen Vogue and several fashion houses, open up my own clothing line, and make lots of art. But most of all, I want to be successful, and happy.

  How did you first get interested in fashion and why is it important?
  I’ve always had a fascination with clothing, ever since I was little. In the second grade I made my mom teach me how to wash my own clothes, because I loved mine so much! I’ve been obsessed ever since. Fashion is important to me because it’s art you can wear. It describes how a generation looks, and feels. And most of all, its conversing with someone without speaking to them first.

What are your greatest passions?
  Music, fashion, and photography.

Favorite designers and places to shop?
Some of my favorite designers are Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. My favorite places to shop are my mom’s closet, Urban Outfitters, Zara, Anthropologie, Forever 21, Target, and Nordstrom.

Most loved/used item in your closet?
My leopard print jacket, and black military boots.

What's on your IPOD / bookshelf / DVD player at the moment?
Phoenix, Drake, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Marina and The Diamonds, Robyn, Ellie Goulding, Friendly Fires, Little Red, Thieves Like Us, Vampire Weekend, Yelle, Two Door Cinema Club, Lupe Fiasco, WAVVES, The Wombats, and Tokyo Police Club.

  What can't you live without?
  My mom’s jewelry she has passed down to me. They’re all such beautiful and time less pieces!

  Aveeno All Natural products. Anything by John Frieda, and Paul Mitchell as well.

  Paul Mitchell hair straightener and John Frieda eucalyptus conditioner!

  80s high-waisted jeans with cowgirl boots and a long fur vest. It looked awesome!

  Followers of your blog know that you model and have your photo taken often, how did you get into this and why do you enjoy it?
  My sister introduced fashion blogging to me, and once I saw Scott Schuman’s The Sartorialist I knew I wanted to make one. I enjoy it because I get to share my fashion with the rest of the world, it’s a great way to get your name out there if you work hard enough!
