Identity Thief: Steal Aria Montgomery's Style (Pretty Little Liars)

This is the day you meet her, but it's not as herself. Her name is Danielle Arapis. Some of you know her, but most of you don't.
Today, she stole Aria Montgomery's identity.

Next week, we will perform another identity heist, and she will become somebody else.
Danielle is a thousand different people all at once, and it is about time you meet them all.
We are both quixotic hybrids of humans, and sometimes we are pretty little liars.

After a two month break from blogging, I've entered the New Year with a brand new mini project for my dusty and adored corner of the internet. I've enlisted the help (and face) of one of my best friends, Danielle Arapis, and together we'll be recreating our favourite looks from celebrities, television and whatever we're loving on Instagram. We'll be stealing identities, looks and personalities from the characters and humans that reflect parts of ourselves. We'll be collaborating with local businesses as well as each other, while she works on a modelling portfolio and I try to balance deadlines, blog posts, and a full time job. Basically, we're helping each other out- and we'd love for you to get involved. Give us a little feedback, or tell us who you want her to become.

Why not photograph myself? Honestly, I just don't want to. I will still be posting damning revelations, unpopular opinions and adventures of my life, and the words are not going anywhere. I want this to be the place where I can share my playtime with long sentences and dreamy ideas, but I also want to create moments, and I want to do them with photographs and the people that I love. I want to move strangers with words, but I also want them lost in captured moments. We want this to be a journey, and we want to make you feel like we've stolen an identity.

We don't want to look like somebody else, and we definitely don't want to be anybody else. We want to walk a mile in somebody else's shoes, and jump in and out of someone else's skin. It's fun to play dress up.

For our first look, we've chosen one of my favourite television characters, Aria from Pretty Little Liars. We chose two different outfits, complete with wide and earthy smokey eyes, thick brows and loose curls, which is the signature look of Lucy Hale's character Aria Montgomery.
