Etsy Finds: “Friday Night Lights”

For some, football is all about the NFL on Monday nights, but, for this girl, it’s all about the lights on a Friday night. I’ve recently been binge-watching the first season of Friday Night Lights on Netflix, and I have to say I’m officially hooked. High drama and emotion beautifully shot against the backdrop of high-stakes Texas football, this show has a lot of heart. Unlike most teen shows, this one puts most of its focus on the incredible bonds that form between friends, family and teammates. Every character has a purpose and depth, and their journeys and experiences feel much closer to the realistic things we’ve all been through.

Since I’m currently obsessed with the show, I decided to check out Etsy and see if there were other  fans who loved it as much as I do. Etsy did not disappoint. Even though it went off the air in 2011, the love for Friday Night Lights, Coach Taylor, and Riggins, Saracen, and the rest of the players still lives on.

Shadowhunter Style: S1:E5 “Moo Shu to Go”

Shadowhunter Sty;e

On this week’s episode of Shadowhunters, the gang faces a pack of angry werewolves after Clary gets kidnapped on Alec’s watch, Luke proves his loyalty to Clary, and Alec and Isabelle’s mother Mayrse returns to the New York Institute.

While she embraced adoptive son Jace with open arms, Mayrse’s reunion with her biological children was less than warm, especially with Isabelle. From their first lines, it’s clear that mother and daughter have their issues. These two women couldn’t be anymore different than night and day in both their actions and their personal styles. They may both wear black dresses in this episode, but the dresses themselves and the way they are styles are two completely different looks. (Both ladies do love a bold red lip though. Maybe there is hope.)

Isabelle’s Look

Mayrse may disapprove of her daughter’s vamped up look, but Isabelle doesn’t let that distain for her appearance force her into conforming to her mother’s more conservative ways. She puts her own sexy spin on the classic LBD, and now you can too. Start with a sleeveless black dress that has a zip-up front and layer a sexy lace bralette underneath. Slide the zipper down just far enough, the bralette peeks out. Pull on a pair of thigh-high boots, and finish the look off with a bold ring, a red stone pendant and a snake cuff bracelet. Isabelle would totally approve.

Mayrse’s Look

Unlike her daughter’s wild child ways, Mayrse is much more conservative in both her actions and her personal style. She is a woman who truly believes appearances are everything, and the most important thing is how her family is looked upon by the Clave. Get her sleek business look by pairing a sleeveless, modestly cut, textured black dress with a peplum blazer and and simple pumps. Use an embellished belt to chinch the blazer at the waist to create an hourglass silhouette. Finish the look off with a stretchy gray stone bracelet, dainty stacked rings, and some simple stud earrings. The only thing missing is Mayrse’s don’t-mess-with-me attitude.
