What’s in your closet: Madeline Slicker looks pretty in pink

If you’re anything like me, you see an outfit — a perfectly accessorized outfit, complete with the perfect jacket, a wonderful statement piece, a pop of color and amazing shoes– and you wonder where in the world did that exceptionally dressed person get those amazing articles of clothing. And instead of asking like a normal person, you, and I, hit the stores in search of that beautiful item and return home without any luck. And if you’re anything like me you sit in front of your closet in the morning with a pile of no-gos agonizing over what the heck you should wear to school, wishing you had that really cool sweater that girl in your fourth hour class was wearing.

Let’s be real, life would literally be a million times easier if we all  just knew where our classmates get their awesome clothes. So, I did what any fashion lover and blogging enthusiast would do — I started a blog about Homestead students and their amazing closets.


Madeline Slicker is the cutest girl ever. No questions asked. A pink enthusiast, Madeline’s entire life is pink. She even responded to my interview questions in pink. So pinkalicious.

Pink heaven, a.k.a Madeline’s bedroom, serves as the homeland of her adorably feminine closet. Ever since she could remember, Madeline “would cry if [she] couldn’t wear a dress,” she continued, “I’ve always been a dress and skirt kind of girl — I hardly ever wear jeans or pants.” Madeline makes all you I’m-too-lazy-so-I’ll-just-wear-sweats girls look like total losers while she prances around in cute little skirts all year round.

For “classy and sophisticated clothing,” Madeline shops at J.Crew. She especially loves the “great sweaters (at J.Crew) with fun graphics on them.” But when Madeline is looking for cute clothes without spending a lot of money, she shops at Forever 21 and H&M.

Madeline, like most of us, faces the universal struggle: dig-shopping at Forever 21 and H&M. She said, “you have to be ready to dig if you go into one of those stores. Sometimes I find a lot when I go; while other times, I walk out with nothing.” Preach it girl.

Speaking my language, Madeline said that if she could buy anything, regardless of price, she would buy a black quilted Chanel bag. Legit life goals in a purse. She said, “I find the quilted pattern so timeless and would love to buy one at some point. Since the bag is black and simple, it would go with everything, and I love the fact that this pattern of bag never goes out of style.”
