It was only a year ago that I bookmarked a photo of Clémence Poésy wearing a monochromatic grey outfit and I’ve since become an avid follower of her style. Unless given an occasion to dress up, Clémence’s style feels effortless and casual in simple skinny jeans and loose fitting tops - a look I’m quite familiar with. I like that she brings out her girly, elegant style for those red carpet appearances but keeps things minimal and androgynous for her everyday looks. And I obviously love the fact that she’s equally as obsessed with layering as I am - three cheers for the approaching cooler climates so that we can all layer away!

Clémence is religiously photographed during Paris Fashion Week and I can only imagine what kind of goodies she’ll be breaking out for those street style candids! But until then, feast your eyes on some of her past look and get inspired!

Also, anyone who recognizes her from Harry Potter gets a gold star.

I’ve only been a follower of Gillian Zinser for a few months but it only took a few seconds for me to consider her one of my style icons. She’s got the bohemian look down to a T and clearly wears far more vintage than any other brand or designer. My kind of girl!

I love how she pieces structured elements like cropped leather jackets and cinched button-downs with more billowy pieces like her maxi skirts and oversized dresses. Much like some of my other style icons like Zoe Kravitz and Georgia Jagger, Gillian’s style is evidently laid back and yet she looks so put together regardless of if she’s walking a red carpet or a grey sidewalk. Can’t you just see her style becoming more and more like Rachel Zoe’s? The queen of bohemian sophistication!

Obvi this one goes without saying, but she’s too cool not to feature. What I love about Chloë Sevigny’s style is that it doesn’t necessarily fit into a single category but it’s certainly eclectic. Her red carpet looks always have a sophisticated edge and in terms of her day-to-day looks? who doesn’t love a good vintage tee and a pair of Doc Martens?! I’m pretty sure she invented the denim cut-off and no one looks better in sockies and sandals than she does.

This is the first of my “style icons” that had me online shopping/browsing equally as much as finding suitable photos for this post. As if I didn’t already want all of the Chloë Sevigny x Opening Ceremony collections, seeing her wearing every piece made me want them even more. Hello eBay, we meet again.  Or for that matter, if anyone is a size 8 or 8.5 and selling any of her shoes - email me stat!!!

There’s such a unique simplicity to her look that makes her style feel totally attainable but at the same time somewhat difficult to pull off. There’s no denying that Chloë’s got an attitude that makes rocking head-to-toe Louis Vuitton look just as easy as a pair of broken in Levi’s and a vintage Cramps tee (yet another item I’ve been coveting for years). Chloë, if you’re reading this, I’d love at least half of your wardrobe.

It goes without saying that Carrie Bradshaw, the love crazed shoe whore protagonist of Sex & the City, is one of the biggest style icons in fashion. Even when she’s wearing athletic shorts and a cheesy tank top she’s still strutting down 5th Avenue in a pair of Manolo Blahniks. But here’s the thing: ever since I got the complete six season booklet for my birthday last year, my obsession with Carrie (and her three “fabulous friends”) has become a little disgusting. With no cable and delays in Netflix arrivals, I have found myself watching Sex & the City episodes back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back-to-back and so on and so forth. And while I clearly enjoy the show and all its quirky love stories, I can’t deny the fact that half the reason I keep watching time and time again is because of Carrie’s covetable wardrobe (and apartment). I know, I know, it’s completely unrealistic and thanks to blogger, The Frenemy‘s excellent math skills we now know exactly how in debt Carrie Bradshaw is, but I really just don’t care. Her outfits and wardrobe are an endless supply of inspiration for me and make getting dressed in the morning that much more thrilling. Brunch on a Saturday? Why not go the Carrie route, say “to hell with casual dressing” and wear a sparkly dress and sky-high heels? Quick run to the grocery store? Better wear that fur coat and Fendi bagette! The only downside to watching this much Sex & the City? I have this never ending urge to go shopping…but I guess that’s nothing new for me.

** p.s. if there is a “S.A.T.C. A” (Sex and the City Anonymous) that any of you know of, feel free to admit me…

**p.p.s. but I’ll only go if I can bring my S.A.T.C. box set with me….

**p.p.p.s. HELP I HAVE ISSUES!

**p.p.p.p.s. I’m sorry for everything that just happened…

Style Icon: Jimi Hendrix

I’ve  been wanting to feature Jimi Hendrix as a style icon for months now, but didn’t want to do it until I felt I had a sufficient amount of rare and colored photographs (not easy to come by a la internet). But at last I’ve accumulated and created a collage worthy of posting and just in time for music festival season no less!

Jimi Hendrix’s wardrobe has to be among the top five wardrobes I’d like to raid. The jackets, the hats, the belts, the VESTS!, the bell bottoms, the jewelzzz, holy mackerel! I’d love to know how long it took him to get dressed for the day. Was it one of those situations where he huffed and puffed in front of the mirror or was it just a grab and go type of thing? Either way, there isn’t an outfit I found where he didn’t look awesome and he definitely makes me feel better about my extensive jacket collection. I mean really, is it possible to ever have enough jackets?! I think not. Now I just have to get my hands on one of those military/Sgt. Pepper jackets. Balmain S/S 2009, I’m looking at you.
