Fashion Breakdown (How to dress like Demi, Miley or Selena) PART 1/3

Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of them, but i noticed that these three Disney girls, have developed their own unique style. They’ve become real fashionistas and I became more interested in what they were wearing then their actual jobs. So i started to do my research. While looking through some gossip sites and reading articels to get to know them, i’ve noticed that their styles are very diffrent from eachother.

In this article you’ll learn everything you need to dress like the most popular Mickey Mouse Girls. Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez.

Have you ever asked yourself where they get their clothes? Read on, if you want to know, where you can buy similar but still fabulous clothes for much less money! I’m going to start with Demi Lovato’s style:

How to dress like Demi Lovato:

F a c t s    A b o u t    D e m i   L o v a t o:

Born: August 22nd 1992, Dallas, TX

Height: 5’2” – 5’3”

Weight: somewhere around 110 – 120 lbs

Clothing Size: 3 – 4

Demi’s sense of style is very rocker-chick edge. Lots of black leather combined with girly details. Most of the time a perfect mix of both! One thing i’ve noticed for sure: her style is fierce

In this articel you’ll find out her fashion must-haves & how to emulate her style!

D e m i ‘ s   W a r d r o b e :

  • Black, Black, Black – If you don’t like black on you, don’t go for Demi’s outfits. Apparently black is Lovato’s favorite colour. I’m guessing that her closet isn’t very colorful, but that’s totaly fine, because a) black suits her incredibly good, b) it can be mixed and matched with every other color , c) it’s her signature color and it’s part of her sophisticated look.

  • Leather – Lovato’s style is all about leather, whether it’s her favorite pair of leather boots, her leather jackets or her leather bags. You can tell that she loves leather. Demi once quoted “I have 3 pairs of leather pants and i love them.” Vintage stores are great to find inexpensive but cool leather jackets. On the cheap, stores like Wet Seal and H&M carry faux leather jackets&bags that are nice to both animals and your wallet!

  • Strapless dresses – Demi has a very girly side to her too, so we’ve seen her in many dresses at premieres, events, and awards. One thing i’ve noticed about Lovato’s dresses is that she always picks short, strapless dresses. Her dresses shows off her beautiful legs. If you’re looking for some great places to find trendy dresses that won’t hurt your bank cards, you can shop at H&M, Forever 21, Zara, Rampage, Charlotte Russe and Bluefly. My personal favorite dress, out of these pictures is the dress she wore at the premiere of her movie Princess Protection Program (picture,right). It’s a nude and black silk-blend strapless structured Alexander Wang corset dress with a netted overlay on skirt, which were worn by both Rihanna & Paris Hilton too. You can find it here.

D e m i ‘ s   A c c e s s o r i e s :


  • High Heels – Demi is a petite person (5’2”), so heels help her to seem taller. She wears bad ass heels all the time! She pairs them with skinny jeans, dresses and skirts. She’s definitely not afraid of heights. The higher the better. So if you like Demi’s style and you’re not afraid of wearing heels, you HAVE to buy at least one pair of perfectly fitting heels.
  • Necklaces – Lovato has a quite nice collection of necklaces and it seems like she’s always wearing one or a few of them. Her necklaces are always very unique and always matched with her outfit. If you want to find amazing and unique necklaces at low prices, search for some on EBay or try making your own! H&M & Monsoon Accessorize can be great for this too.

  • Shades – Demi hardly ever wears a lot of jewlery but she does love her shades. She always wears shades with super dark lenses. I guess, because of the paparazzi, but even if you’re not a superstar, you can find cool and similar shades in stores such as H&M, Monsoon Accessorize and Forever 21.  She also owns a lot of Ray Ban shades, so maybe you should get a pair. Here are some extra dark shades.

This is it for today, tomorrow i’ll write a style breakdown for Miley Cyrus and post it for you. On Monday i’ll post the style breakdown for Selena Gomez.

How to Get Rid of Blackheads

Almost everyone  has them, everyone hates them. Well, blackheads are one of the biggest skin problems that girls/woman face. They appear on your chin, cheeks but most of all your nose. A few months ago i faced my skin problem and honestly i really don’t know how many hours I’ve spent in front of a mirror squeezing one blackhead after another and it didn’t help, they would always come back. So i did my research and found a lot of helpful tips and tricks. Now, I’m really proud to say that i USED to struggle with them myself, but this is how i got rid of them:

If you feel the need to squeeze your blackheads, please follow my tips below, before you start picking on your face:

1)Wash your face with a gentle facial scrub(i.e. Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating™ Daily Scrub ). It helps to eliminate most blackheads, to prevent new ones and to clean pores. It also makes your skin softer than it was before.

2) Cover your face – with a warm, wet cloth for 10 to 15 minutes (helps to open your pores) and once complete, dry the face with a towel. If this doesn’t work out for you, it also works good if you try to remove them after a shower.

3) Then cover your index fingers – of both hands with a tissue and use gentle pressure to press down then up around the sides of the blackhead. Don’t get frustrated if nothing happens, the blackhead is probably not ready to come out yet. Wait a few daysand try it again. The most important thing is to be careful and please don’t use your nails or press too hard, it can damage your skin and it might even lead to scars and sometimes it leaves a gaping hole and some of them will never close up again. After you remove the blackheads, clean the area, because the pore can get infected – NEVER pleasant. A Q-tip with rubbing alcohol works fine.

4) Makeup – If you try to cover up your blackheads with make up or heavy foundations, you could easily cause more of them! The trick is to use Oil-free-foundations, powder, blushes and cocealers. Also, consider using as few products as you can.

5) Clay masks once a week – This is for all the ladies out there who have either oily or combination skin. As you may know, blackheads are caused by excess oil on your face, so you should consider to buy a clay mask every once in a while and i promise, it’ll help you to sop up the grease and to keep your pores clearer. Use it once a week – you don’t want to over-dry your skin, because this could lead to even more problems!

Two “anti-blackhead” products you may have heard about, but you shouldN’T use:

A) Pore Strips – First of all, they damage your skin. Second of all, they don’t even help, you won’t get rid of them by using them and trust me … they DO hurt. Third, after using them, you’re going to look like Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer and last, they’re pretty expensive.

B) Blackhead creams – Most of those creams aggravate your skin because of the harsh ingredients they use.
