Here are my tips on making your own "cupcake"
- Find a certain style that you really like. I personally really like clothes from Anthropologie.
- Next, because I cannot afford to buy EVERYTHING from Anthropologie I copy the styles and create my own look.
- Although I do not wear Anthropologie-ish, or Betsey Johnson, clothes everyday I do try to always try to have the "tone" of the store, because I think it is pretty.

It takes a very long time to develop a personal style. In elementary school I like to wear tulle with everything and layered clothing quite excessively, in middle school I tried the "Aeropostale" look (which I guess worked because I had yet to develop my voluptuousness, but did not fit my personality), and now in High School I am an Anthropologie loving cupcake.
Other things to take into consideration when developing a style:
First, analyze your body type. We are not, as I said earlier, all the same. If you have curves (like me) make sure to choose a style that allows you to wear skirts and dresses that accentuate your waist.
Second, think about your personality. Someone who is obsessed with death and vampires and what not will not look good as a cupcake. However, someone who likes fairy tales and sweet things makes for an excellent cupcake.
I hope you all take this into consideration and take a while to think, who are you? Are you a cupcake?
