IDOLIZING ANGIE HOOLEY & TBB LINK-UP


I was a freshman in high school and she was a senior. Angie Hooley, my fashion idol! She was way too cool for school, at lunch she’d sit on the edge of the gym stage with her Legs crossed, guys fawning over her, Capri tights, cute skirts, anklets, heels and some sort of Madonna-ish lace, Always a cute hair accessory. I wanted to be her! I don’t think she even knew a little freshman pion such as me even existed but I admired her every move. This outfit is homage to a high school fashion idol. Angie would’ve worn something like this embroidered studded jacket and lace anklets. She'd have a bow in her hair, big hair, of the 80's. There was usually dark nail polish involved.




She had the same last name as my BFF but they were not related. She had a mysterious aura about her and at times I wondered if she was even real.


Isn't the embroidered floral back so cool and retro! 

Funny thing is after she graduated, I never saw her again, never heard what happened to her nor is she on social media that I know of. Wherever she is, I hope is just as fashionable and I was honored to be awarded Best Dressed my senior year just like she was. This BLANK NYC studded floral embroidered denim Moto Jacket would have most definitely been in Angie's closet.

Lace Anklets HERE // Hair Tie HERE // Patent Leather Pumps HERE

What about you, did you have someone who’s fashion style you admired, someone not famous, just an everyday person whom you idolized?


Now Let's Link-Up your fabulous style and head over to The Blended Blog and see what one of our beautiful ladies is styling and loving!

  36. OMG Andrea, I LOVE this post! And you look absolutely amazing – clearly that girl at school must have idolised Madonna, right? I don't think I had anyone like that to be honest. I just loved anything goth as well as Madonna lol. I did have a pair of fingerless lace gloves ;)
    Thank you so much for linking up to the Thursday Moda this week! I'm thrilled to be Ada's co-host today <3

  40. Isn't it crazy how we look up to seniors as freshman- I remember having a similar girl crush on some of the upperclassmen when I was just starting high school. They were just so COOL and seemed to have it all together! You are rocking the Angie look here! :)

  42. Wouldn't it be fun if Angie googled her name and this post popped up and she read it? I am sure it would put a smile on her face. You are so cute in this flashback outfit from your high school days.I love the embroidered jacket, that necklace, the bow in your hair and the lace skirt with leggings. So perfect!

  45. Oh my goodness...you look adorable from head to toe. There is so much fun detail involved with this outfit. I must ask. Did you have to switch things out a time or two or did it all just flow together. I experience both of these type of personal styling sessions..so you never know. I had a few fashionistas I'd watch daily...they seem to have it all together from top to bottom. And I was frumpa-lumpa - gawking. Ah well, I made it through somehow. lol. I'm not at all surprised you won best dressed in the least! Beautiful lady - inside and out!!

  46. I love how fun and retro the jacket is, the embroidered detail and the pearls are fun details!

  49. Hello, 1980's! You have done a super job of recreating your style idol's style. Hmmm, now you've got me curious about her and if she is still as stylish as in school. xoxo
