We head to Pittsburgh, PA and go behind the scenes at Just a Girl and Her Blog to tour Abby's craft room.

"It's girly! I live in a house full of boys, so now there is finally a room that is feminine and all mine! All of the storage is pretty great too."

Jessica from Little Henry Lee recreates the look of singer & musician PJ Harvey.

As far as style goes, PJ Harvey has had a lot of looks over her 25 year career. From androgynous pant-suits to high-necked Victorian gowns, bright blue eye-shadow and striped arm-warmers, sparkly leotards and neon pink jumpsuits - she's just about worn it all. Apart from her incredible and enduring musical talents, I love her ability to wear whatever the hell she wants and pull it off with ease.

DIY Denim Bow Tie Top

Recreate the look with Joyce's Denim Bow Tie Top tutorial:

How would you describe your style?

Hmm I'm still trying to figure out what my style is! But especially since I'm going to start college soon, I've been drawn to clothing that is comfortable and versatile rather than super trendy. 

What's your favourite piece in your wardrobe?

A cropped doughnut tee from forever21! I love wearing it with high waisted shorts for an easy summer outfit or pairing it with a fancy skirt for a more dressed up outfit. And who doesn't love doughnuts? :)

Who are your style icons?

I find inspiration from other fashion bloggers. I'm always checking my bloglovin' feed, hahahaha. Some of my favorite blogs include: Ready Two Wear, Flashes of Style, Gal Meets Glam, Brooklyn Blonde, and Signeroo

Do you have any favourite designers?

Jason Wu and Alice+Olivia

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

Forever21, Urban Outfitters, and American Eagle Outfitters

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Not very often! Only if I have a piece in my closet that I don't wear as often anymore and I'm in the mood for experimenting haha.

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

Accessorizing can make all the difference! I love adding scarves or interesting pieces of jewelry to make an old outfit a little more exciting.

Which other fashion blogs do you love to read?

I mentioned some above but here are some more that I love to read: Adventures in Fashion, Cheetah is the New Black, Styled Avenue, and Song of Style

We head to South Florida to go behind the scenes at Directions Not Included and tour Anna's craft room.

I absolutely love the paint color and the feel of the space. It is organized and cozy and feels like me. Does that make sense? When a space feels like you? Because that is the only way I can describe it. It is mine.

Daniela from Curly Made recreates the gothic and witchy look of singer-songwriter Lorde:

Lorde's style is very simple, wearing mostly black and white on a daily basis. In an interview Lorde said: “I like simple clothes, but sometimes I’ll go for a goth-witch vibe”, which we can see in her red carpet and street looks. Complementing the look, natural eyes and dark lips is her signature makeup as well as her curly hair with a lot of volume.

How would you describe your style?

Quirky & eclectic best characterize my style and my wardrobe is filled with unique eco-refashions, handmade accessories & fabulous thrifted gear!

My collection of refashioned vintage cocktail dresses...I just wish I had more occasions to wear them!

Lisa Bonet, Cyndi Lauper & 1980's Molly Ringwald

Betsey Johnson, Vivienne Westwood, sustainable fashion designer Liore Lassalle, DIY fashionista Geneva Vanderzeil, Courtney & Kelsey Montague (the eco-fashion curators behind Nikita & Vesper)

Where are your favourite places to shop for new clothes clothes?

As an eco-fashion refashionista I firmly believe that fabulous, affordable, unique style can be achieved without supporting the growing phenomenon of cheap, unethically produced “fast fashion” and love spending an afternoon browsing the racks of my fave thrift & charity shops for new-to-me items or discovering fabulous second hand clothing online.

Do you make or customise your outfits?

Absolutely! Most of my wardrobe has been refashioned or recreated in some way. 

Do you have any great tips for mixing up and personalising an outfit?   

Never be afraid to try something new. Stepping out of your style comfort zone can have a dynamic effect on your self esteem...start small by adding a funky new accessory to a fave outfit and in no time at all you'll be creating your own unique style everyday!

Poitiers, France •

I guess the best thing about living in Poitiers is all the activity you can see, feel and experience. Being a major student city, the population in Poitiers consists of students from the University, and old people doing groceries. One of my favorite things is going to the market that’s placed next to the church on Wednesdays and Saturdays, sit down and watch old people go about their day. I live 5 minutes away from downtown, so I can experience the city’s life first hand

We head to Plumas Lake, California to go behind the scenes of Gluesticks and tour blogger Brandy's lovely craft room.

I love that this space combines my favorite colors, lots of organizational spaces and is functional! It isn't just a pretty room :)

This week we're continuing our Game Of Thrones theme and Knittin' Kitten recreates the look of Melisandre.

Melisandre's fashion style completely embodies the sense of the "red woman" - dangerous, seductive, sensual and wild. Her long flowing red hair goes perfectly with her gothic all-red ensemble, and her jewellery looks as though it had been crafted by witches, with a spell placed for good measure. You could also make a replica of her fantastic necklace, or just go simply drenched in red - so long as you keep saying "The night is dark and full of terrors", people will know you're the Red Priestess and fall to their knees for The Lord of Light.
