Music Inspired Fashion Challenge

I have to admit another secret...I know, two in one week, brace yourselves! I have a little sister. Not just any little sister, but just about the world's coolest sister ever! She was one of those, kids everyone likes- sweet, artsy, smart, loyal, and just amazing!
I have to admit something else- she dresses WAY better than I do. She is the most original, creative, unique individual. As a high school student she didn't follow any of the trendy teen ways, shunned Aeropostale, Hollister, (insert and other trendy teen store here), she read Nina Garcia's The One Hundred, read Lucky, and created her own style icons. On a huge budget, and with a curvy body, this girl can REALLY work it! She's the one who inspired me to start a blog, and simultaneously started her own. So, if you wanna see one cool college co-ed, with the taste of a super cool 20 something (even though she's a little younger), I will direct you attention to: Eclectic Rocking

We had a fashion text convo the other day, and decided we both wanted to break free of the rut we are in. I'm a little prepster with some feminine/retro flair, she's pretty artsy with a rocker vibe. We were debating how one changes a rut, and where to get inspiration- when inspiration hit! THE MUSIC INSPIRED FASHION CHALLENGE!
We both listen to different tunes, but decided to make a play list for each other to stretch each other's taste. We submitted 12 songs over the weekend to one another, and over the next 3 weeks we have to wear an outfit that could be featured in the music video, reflects the artist, or captures the vibe of the song. I've been stretched just thinking about this! I have a DIY project in mind, and a very abnormal (for me) item to buy!
So stay tuned, the Music Inspired Fashion Challenge begins today!
Feel free to play along with either of our tunes, it will be tons of fun!
