Shadowhunter Style: S1:E10 “This World Inverted”

Shadowhunter Sty;e

On this week’s Shadowhunters, Clary jumped through a seelie portal in order to find Valentine, and she ended up in alternate universe where shadowhunters didn’t exist, Izzy was a nerd, Alec was cool, and Jace was a barista. Meanwhile, in the real world, Izzy was arrested for treason, driving Alec to take some seriously dangerous risks in order to save her.

The alternate reality concept allows the show’s wardrobe department to really play with characters’ outfits in this episode.They utilize pops of color, soft fabrics and flawy cuts to create a world that sharply contrasts with all the leather, skintight pieces, and heavy dark colors we’ve come to expect from Shadowhunters. The result is a reimagining of our favorite characters and

Here are the must-have looks you need to have in your closet from this week’s episode.

Clary

Look 1

Desperate to do follow any lead that will help her locate Valentine, Clary leaps head first into a portal taking on her very first solo mission as a shadowhunter. She’s ready to get down to business in outfit that won’t slow her down. Get her take on the shadowhunter uniform by pairing a v-neck tee in a rich oxblood with a pair of black skinny jeans and a sexy leather jacket. Complete your look with some studded black booties, a purple crystal necklace, a studded leather wrap bracelet, and a practical yet stylish messenger bag.

Look 2

When Clary lands on the other side of the portal, she’s transported into a world where her parents are together, Jace is her steady boyfriend, and demons no longer pose a threat to humanity. She also gets back a version of her pre-shadowhunter closet. Get this little throwback to Clary’s past life by pairing a flowy striped tank with grey jeans and distressed grey booties. Finish it off with a collection of multicolored bangles and a purple crystal necklace.

Look 3

While in the portal-verse, Clary’s mission gets a little sidetracked when she’s thrust into an over-the-top Alice in Wonderland themed gala planned by alternate universe Alec. With Jace on her arm, she steps out in style that’s more her old self than her current one. To get her party look, pair a vintage-inspired dressing a pretty purple with a pair of lacy black embellished pumps. A purple crystal pendant, a set of thin gold bangles, and a collection of dainty gold rings add the final touch to this simply sweet look.

Isabelle

Look 1

Isabelle may be a prisoner of the Clave, but that doesn’t mean our girl is going down without a fight or looking like a hot mess. She’s still looking fierce despite being confined. Recreate Izzy too-cool-to-care look by combining a sexy black peplum top with black skinny jeans and knee-high black heeled boots. A geometric cocktail ring adds some edge. Of course, this wouldn’t be complete without her signature snake bracelet and ruby red crystal pendant.

Look 2

When Clary meets alternate universe Izzy, she barely recognizes her. Not that you can blame her. Unlike the sexy and confident girl in the real world, this version of Izzy is just your regular laid-back shy girl who wears glasses and shares earbuds with her boyfriend. Get her geek-chic style by pairing a some basic blue jeans and a graphic tee, like the Star Wars one she wore in the episode, with a pair of brown lace-up boots. Finish your look with an assortment of string and wrap bracelets on your arm and a flannel shirt tied around your waist.

Look 3

Izzy is always the life of the party, but, in portal world, her usual party look gets a major overhaul. She’s traded in her usual something black and leather that shows more skin than it covers something soft and sweet. Get her portal party look with an classically cut embellished dress in a beautiful blue hue. A pair of glittery silver heels and a rhinestone studded headband add some sparkle while simple silver bangles and chandelier earrings with a hint of blue tie everything together.

Shadowhunter Style: Isabelle’s Ruby Pendant

Shadowhunter Sty;e

From the books to the film to the television show, Isabelle Lightwood’s ruby pendant is the most recognized piece of jewelry in the Shadowhunter fandom.  Originally the property of warlock Magnus Bane and passed down through several generations of the Lightwood family, it pulsates and glows to warn its wearer that demons are nearby. I was thrilled that it was includedcin Shadowhunters and even more so by the fact that they kept the same design from the film. To me, Izzy just wouldn’t be the girl we all know and love without it.

Heading to Philadelphia? Here’s Some Places to Check Out on Your Next Visit

XOXO Philly

The birthplace of independence, home of Rocky, and land of the cheesesteak, Philadelphia truly is one of a kind. Every year, tourists flock to this historic city to immerse themselves in the story of the American Revolution and walk in the footsteps of our forefathers. Living right outside the city of Brotherly Love, one of my favorite things to do is hop on the train and right into the heart of the city. I love exploring the boutiques of Old City, soaking up the sight and sounds of Independence Mall, catching a show on the Avenue of the Arts, and grabbing a bite to eat at the Reading Terminal. While I’m constantly stumbling upon something new every time I’m in town, there are a few places that hold a special place in my heart.

Here’s my top favorite places to shop and eat when I head down to the City of Brotherly Love to add to your must-visit list next you come to Philadelphia.

Smak Parlour, located at 219 Market Street

Girly to the max with a sophisticated rock and roll edge, Smak Parlour is a must-see for any fashionista. Started by best friends Abby and Katie, this bright pink dollhouse-inspired boutique houses an eclectic collection of vintage-inspired tops, pinup-style dresses and deconstructed band tees, as well as a variety of luxe accessories that will a little retro glam into any look. (Their black cherry-printed pinup dress is one of my go-to pieces.) Not only does Smak Parlour have a brick-and-morter location, but they are also taking their style city-wide with their mobile fashion truck. Abby and Katie, along with their fashion-forward and friendly staff, definitely bring some serious style to the city one neighborhood at a time.

Never Too Spoiled, located at 57 N 3rd Street

With earthy, laid-back vibe, Never Too Spoiled is a little piece of heaven for the bohemian in all of us and one of my favorite places to shop of all time. In addition to being an official carrier of Lokai bracelets, Giving Keys and Loova soaps, they house a collection breezy pieces from lines like A’reve, Blu Pepper and Entro. Their staff is super sweet and always ready to help, whether their starting a fitting room for you or providing recommendations for items to try on or pair with what you’ve already picked out. However, this boutique isn’t just all about shopping. They host workshops and offer an event space that can be rented out for parties and showers. This boho paradise is a testament to the fact that no girl can ever be too spoiled.

Meltkraft, located inside the Reading Terminal Market at 12 & Arch street

While Philadelphia may be synonymous with the cheesesteak, Meltkraft is all about another cheesy delicacy: the grilled cheese sandwich. However, this isn’t your average sandwich. Handcrafted with artisan cheeses from their creamery Valley Shepard Farm, they are elevating this comfort food staple with bold flavors. There’s the Valley Thunder that incorporates brisket and mac and cheese, and the Brielle, a mix of brie, cranberry chutney, caramelized onions and nuts. I’m more of a classic girl, so for me it’s all about the Avenue D, a plain and simple sandwich bumped up in flavor with the amazing Valley Shepard cheeses. (For something a little more luxe, you can have cooked with truffle oil.) With a side of regular or dill-flavored kettle chips, this is the perfect place for a quick and filling lunch.

The Franklin Fountain, located at 116 Market Street

Who among us doesn’t love ice-cream? To get you ice-cream fix, head over to the Franklin Fountain. This vintage-style soda fountain is serving up sundaes, splits, shakes, and old-fashioned ice-cream sodas. Flavors range from the classic, like vanilla and chocolate, to the more exotic, like teaberry and green tea. Whether you get it a cone or one of their Chinese takeout container inspired cups, there is something to satisfy every sweet tooth. Need a recommendation? My personal favorite is the green tea ice-cream with chocolate sprinkles. (It’s amazing. Trust me.)
