The Gilded Ones : MY THOUGHTS !!!

The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna .Weaving together elements of fantasy and traditional West African society, Forna has created a compelling and unique world for readers. 


Sixteen-year-old Deka lives in fear and anticipation of the blood ceremony that will determine whether she will become a member of her village. Already different from everyone else because of her unnatural intuition, Deka prays for red blood so she can finally feel like she belongs.

Bratz is an American product line of fashion dolls and merchandise manufactured by MGA Entertainment and created by Carter Bryant. Four original 10-inch dolls were released in 2001—Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha.

Bratz outfits are fashionable so I went with bright and bold colours for this inspiration mood board with a hint of y2k aesthetic as the outfits on the show have elements of y2k.

For my 2021 reading wish list I had listed the book Lore by Alexandra Bracken.


Book description.

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.

The goddess offers an alliance against their mutual enemy and, at last, a way for Lore to leave the Agon behind forever. But Lore’s decision to bind her fate to Athena’s and rejoin the hunt will come at a deadly cost–and still may not be enough to stop the rise of a new god with the power to bring humanity to its knees.


Ranking Fashion Aesthetics

. I saw this idea on YouTube from the Youtuber Ariel McKenna which you should check out her video

I strongly believe having aesthetics are unnecessary putting everyone in one box and I agree that everyone should just wear whatever makes them comfortable and not having to stick just to one aesthetic.

So I will be ranking fashion aesthetics that I had found on Pinterest and YouTube from 1 to 6.

  1. Futuristic

Futuristic fashion is born when designers who are passionate about clothing adopt new technologies or create their own to bring their visions into reality.

When scrolling and looking at designer garments from 2021 spring/summer trends there has been certain trends that I have love and could totally imagine myself wearing them.

  • Romantic

The romantic trend consists of clothes that present a dramatic aura of femininity and past-century nostalgia. Designers incorporate the use of ruffles, flowing silhouettes, transparent fabrics, high necklines, and elegant evening dresses to perfectly embody the high-fashion of early 19th century styles.

  • Leopard Print which I have seen all over TikTok with this print being on pants which I find very overused. I like it when it appears on bags and tops. When seeing leopard print trend on TikTok I wasn’t as excited compared to seeing the other prints trend. Overall I believe it depends on the colour of the cheetah print and the size of the print.
