Welcome to Amity!

Hi, readers and fashionistas!  Wow is it COLD in Indiana!  We are in blizzard conditions and have a few days off of school--it is FRIGID here!  Luckily we still have electricity and heat in our house, but so many Hoosiers have had to re-locate to emergency centers.  My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected!

This is an exciting week for me here at Stylish in the Stacks...because it's Allegiant week!  At the end of the week, I'll be reviewing this final book in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth...so leading up to this review, I'll be designing outfits for each of the five factions in the book.  Isn't that so fun?!  

So I thought I'd start with the faction that I would probably join--Amity.  The Amity are emotional, sympathetic, sensitive talkers.  They love nature and the camp feel.  This is totally me--I believe God blessed me with the gift of emotions (and tears!) and I love being in cabins.  

The Amity wear red and yellow, so those colors obviously inspired today's look.  Now I'm not taking it too specifically (in other words, I will also incorporate other colors), but red and yellow will be the featured colors.  So here is my Amity look:

Aagh, I think it's perfect!  Here's why:

  • The shirt is the obvious focal point in the look.  It is bright yellow and features floral lace details.  Since the Amity are so nature-oriented, I knew the floral pattern was perfect.  This particular shirt is Moschino Cheap & Chic and is a whopping $383!
  • The jeans were simply a casual addition to the outfit and gives it that rugged look.  These are the brand Supertrash and retail for about $165.
  • Red TOMS--yes!  Very natural and philanthropic-driven.  They add the pop of red that I wanted and keep the outfit down-to-earth.  
  • A few subtle additions keep the outfit girly and casual.  The brown wrap bracelet keeps the outdoorsy look (found on Zappos.com for $190) and the red headband add in a little more red (found at Nordstrom.com for $10) for the faction color scheme.
So what do you think?  I LOVE the look and would definitely wear it in the Amity faction.  How about you?  What faction would you choose?

Tomorrow we'll move on to Candor, the honest, truth-telling faction in black and white.  See you then!

  2. Haha...no, they'll be very book-specific in the movie. Mine are just inspirations :)
