Even though my new job has me looking and learning about models everyday, I’ve been following Abbey Lee Kershaw’s style religiously ever since I saw her in a Numéro editorial back in 2008. It’s only in the last few years that she’s started popping up on all the street style blogs which means my style stalking has grown sufficiently.

There are few people who have as unique a style as Abbey Lee, in fact it’s so unique it’s practically impossible to replicate. This isn’t only because so much of her clothing is vintage and/or thrifted, she also has an ability to put unexpected yet complementary pieces together that the best I can do is compare her style to dadaism. Maybe I’m making a stretch there, but fashion=art and vice versa right?

I think the biggest thing that I take away from her personal style is that while simple, staple pieces are always key, it’s also good to go outside your comfort zone and wear something totally outlandish and statement making (i.e. her Oscar the Grouch green fur coat). Or maybe that’s just my excuse for having such a ridiculous jacket collection…
