My Favorite Tips from Fashionatas
Today’s guest post is provided by author Sherry Soule, who is celebrating the release of her novel, IMMORTAL ECLIPSE—due to be published April 30, 2013.
If you like supernatural suspense mingled with a dash of chick-lit and a healthy dose of paranormal romance, then this is the book for you. The heroine, Skylar is like most of us; finding out who she really is, trying to build lasting relationships, looking for the perfect man, and learning to trust her heart. All while looking great and wearing cute shoes!
This fun post is about fashion and personal style, which has the ability to inspire confidence, poise, and make us think that we can take on the world. I’m going to share my favorite fashion quotes and sayings from designers, actresses, and inspiring women around the globe.
Pop cultural references in movies, books, and TV shows like The Devil Wears Prada, The Hills, Ugly Betty, Fashion Babylon, Guide to Style, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Sex in the City, and Project Runway are must-haves for fashionable girls. If loving fashion is a crime, I plead guilty!
“One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” —Karl Lagerfeld
“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.” —Gianni Versace

“I like my money right where I can see it…hanging in my closet.” —Carrie Bradshaw
"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman." —Coco Chanel

"Be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty, it’s about good attitude. You have to believe in yourself and be strong." —Adriana Lima

“Don’t be a slave to fashion. It’s easy to feel pressure that you have to look a certain way, but we are all unique individuals, so why would we all want to look the same? Remember, your style is unique, just like you!” —Skylar Blackwell
A devoted fashionata and practical New Yorker, Skylar Blackwell doesn’t believe in the supernatural—until she inherits Summerwind Mansion. . . .
When her uncle is brutally murdered, and the cops seem uninterested in following up the case, Skylar journeys to California to seek answers. Her search for clues is soon overshadowed by haunting nightmares of a young woman also murdered in the house.
Now the inhabitants of Summerwind are mysteriously dying, leaving no evidence as to how or why, and Skylar finds herself in a deadly race against time to expose the killer—before they strike again.
The problem is . . . whoever it is may not be human.
Armed with only wit and Pradas, Skylar begins questioning the servants, but the growing list of suspects includes the sexy and brooding caretaker, Dorian, a man desperately trying to forget his tragic past. And a major distraction for Skylar.
Determined to play detective—instead of the fashion police—and unravel the dark history of the mansion, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away. As the boundaries between reality and dreams blur, Skylar’s greatest challenge is to stay alive long enough to learn the truth.
