Fashion me: Dressing like Marina/Em from All Our Yesterdays

Fashion me is blog segment where characters teach us how to dress.
Do you wanna dress like a book character? Well, this is the perfect place to start.

Hello there!
Today Marina and Em from All our yesterdays will teach us how to dress in two different situations. Check it out!

You know, when your fighting to keep the boy you love alive, there isn't enough time to get properly dressed... Marina knows about it.

"The dress is deep blue and sparkly, like the sky twenty minutes after the sunset, filled with ten thousand stars" 
Which turned out:
"Not caring about the years of embedded dirt I’m getting on my beautiful dress. Somewhere I lost one of Sophie’s shoes, and a bruise is rapidly darkening on my arm, which I don’t remember hitting"
"I put the phone on speaker and rest it on my dresser as I change into pajamas. Mom hates it when I wear pajamas to dinner. These were a gift from Luz, and my skin sighs in relief when I slip out of the suffocating skinny jeans Tamsin insisted I buy and into the cheap, soft fleece."
"I come out of the bathroom stall clad in jeans and a sweater to find Luz leaning against the sink, arms crossed over her chest"

And then, when you travel in time you realize how little clothing matters.

"Despite my ratty jeans and hair that hasn’t been washed for days, no one at this high-class D.C. law firm says a word about my odd presence."
"My prisoner slippers are thin, but they’ll get me wherever we’re going"

The book

What would you change?
Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain. Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside. 
Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it... at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

Now GO! and read All Our Yesterdays.
