Guest Post

Fashion in Pretty Little Lies

Olivia, the main character in Pretty Little Lies is a journalist, a fashion journalist that is.  During one of her college courses, she and her peers were given an assignment by their professor to start a blog.  The blog could be about anything they chose, as long as they wrote something a few times each week.  It was to be used as a creative outlet, and to give them a writing platform.  Olivia decided to combine her love of fashion and writing.  This is how her blog, ‘Pink Sugar Couture’ came to be. 

What makes Olivia so unique is the fact that she finds beauty in everything.  It could be a rich wood used to make a bookshelf that draws her attention, or she may notice how perfect a throw pillow is that manages to tie a whole room together.  These descriptions are prominent throughout the novel, giving you an inside look at Olivia’s personality.  

Shockingly, Olivia’s blog took off and she quickly gained thousands of followers.  Given her audience, it wasn’t long before word spread and major fashion magazines and fellow fashion bloggers began to take notice.  Olivia is bold and doesn’t mix words about how some fashion trends just don’t work.  She also uses her blog as a way to educate women about the key pieces of clothing everyone should own.  

Olivia’s fashion tips are fun and relatable, which is why one appears at the beginning of each chapter in Pretty Little Lies!    Here’s a sample….

“Fashion tip: Crocs, anything requiring batteries, trucker hats, leggings being worn as pants and too short jorts are a few things that you should treat like a fashion virus. Just say no!”

Tell me, what is a fashion tip or beauty tip that you would like to contribute to Olivia’s blog?  How about a fashion faux pas that you made?  Or do you have a fashion item you can’t live without?  Tell me about it! 

About the Book

A little lie can change the course of everything. . .

Like every other eighteen-year-old in love, Olivia has dreams of spending forever with the love of her life. Luke is all she’s ever wanted – until she overhears something she was never meant to. In a matter of seconds, Olivia’s heart is shattered. Olivia handles it the only way she knows how - she runs- leaving behind her family, friends and the boy she loves. 

Seeking comfort and an escape, Olivia finds it in resident bad boy Deacon. He’s everything Luke isn’t – and that’s fine with Olivia.

Now, seven years later, Olivia is older, wiser and headed back to Chicago looking forward to a fresh start and reconnecting with her best friend Pyper. What she doesn’t expect, is to come face to face with the boy she left behind and discover that even though she may have left, her feelings for him didn’t. 

Can Olivia put aside the pain in her heart and trust Luke? Will the ties to her past ever let her go, or will she continue to let her life be affected by pretty little lies?
