What would Molly wear?

Continuing with featuring the style of our fictional characters from our Emma Wood novels...we are checking out what Molly would wear.

If you've seen the Dos Equis beer commercials featuring "The Most Interesting Man in the World" then you already know a little about our character Molly. She just might be the most interesting girl in the world. People swarm to her like bees around honey. They succumb to her every whim, even without her asking. You might think that she is taking advantage of people, but she really isn't. She's smart, gorgeous and nice, but you are going to have to wait for her to appear. She doesn't show up until our 5th novel. 

To show off her legs, Molly would look great in this sexy strapless number from InfinityTiffany on Etsy. Love the detailing on the peek-a-boo hem.

For work, she would pair it with this wonderful crocheted shrug. If you are really talented, you should download the pattern found on FavoritePATTERNs on Etsy and make one for yourself.

A strong girl needs a strong piece of jewelry. This wonderful mixed metal cuff would be just the right bracelet. The unique piece can be found at MicheleGradyDesigns on Etsy.

She would pair the bracelet with these Turquoise earrings that are elegant with a little bit of an industrial feel. Just perfect for Molly's style. The earrings can be found at JD4Dreamer on Etsy.

Molly would choose a pop of color for her bag. This adorable tote with birds and leaves is just the thing...it can be found at DandelionHoney on Etsy.

For shoes, she would choose these Stella McCartney strappy heels.

When you are looking this cool, you have to be sporting some vintage sunglasses. Find these and many other pairs at IFoundGallery on Etsy.

Hope you will let us know what you think about the most interesting girl in the world's style.
Happy reading and shopping!

What would Shelby wear?

Shelby is such a fun character in our Emma Wood novels. She loves mixing vintage clothing and accessories with trendy and current eclectic fashions. If she were going shopping on The Strand in Galveston, on a hot summer day, her look would be cool and colorful.

Shelby would look adorable in this 1970's floral beach set found at RosaVintageFinds on Etsy.

She would love this colorful vintage handbag by Carlow Falchi fount at VintageWearTreasures on Etsy. 

You've got to have sunglasses on the island. These cutesy pink sunglasses are found at Zulily.

Shelby will be doing lots of walking on uneven sidewalks and brick streets in The Strand, so she needs to wear comfortable shoes. These custom painted pink floral flats provide Shelby with her individual colorful style and a little bit of comfort. Find your own individual style at CustomPaintedShoes on Etsy.

These wonderful Labradorite earrings spin which give them just enough whimsy to fit perfectly into Shelby's wardrobe. They can be found at markaplan on Etsy.

And finally, she would add the perfect summer bracelet, colorful and chunky with an island theme from ExecutiveBeader on Etsy.

I could never pull off such a colorful fashion statement...which is why it's so fun to dress Shelby. I hope you will leave us a comment on Shelby's eclectic style. If you want to meet Shelby, check out the first novel in our chick lit series, First Kiss.

What would Emma wear?

The main character in our Emma Wood series has an athletic body, but is less than athletic in real life...okay, who are we kidding, she's a klutz. Working as an event planner in a luxury resort hotel in Galveston, she has a style that is professional in a non-stuffy way, that reflects the casualness of a beach community.

This cute dress is fun and flirty, just like Emma. It can be found at Anthopologie.

Since she's always on the run at the Sun Castle Hotel, these would make the perfect shoes. The adorable flats can be found at TheBalletBird on Etsy.

And she would add this bag, which is so cute and large enough to carry all the stuff that a girl on the go needs! This stylish purse can be found at milloo.

To adorn her neck, she would rock this wonderful color block necklace from BevinBold on Etsy.

This Bronze leaf bracelet could be a staple piece of Emma's wardrobe, from MettleInMetal on Etsy.

And she would top off her fashion statement with these simple, but elegant petite hoop earrings found at Surori on Etsy.

Hope you will leave us a comment on what you think about Emma's style.

What would Shelby wear?

One of the main characters in our Emma Wood series is the ever popular Shelby. She's super sweet, has an easy going eclectic style and doesn't necessarily seem like the brightest bulb in the pack...and yet things seem to work out for her in the most amazing ways.

She would totally rock this colorful Bohemian patchwork dress available at Zulily.

Shelby would pair that with these Sad Cat earrings available at Pedoozle...

...and this vintage Boho style hot pink crocheted shoulder bag found in the Etsy shop DiamondsAreVintage

...and this Happy Bracelet!

...and we don't want her other wrist to go naked, so she would add this totally fantastic Barbie Car bracelet from ElectricSparkleStore on Etsy!

...and these outrageously cool C-heel strappy sandals found in the Etsy shop TatiTatiVintage!

If you want to know more about Shelby...check out First Kiss available on Amazon.
