You can dress like Coco Rocha, Sophia Amoruso and Christina Milian on a budget

20 Feb

So you think its impossible to dress like a supermodel, CEO or singer. I’m here to show you how. It’s no secret that I love to covet beautiful vintage clothing and pass it on.  You don’t need to spend two weeks of your pay in order to look like your favorite celebrity. Just use your imagination.

Don’t dress exactly as your favorite celebrity muse. Take inspiration from their look and add your own style. Everyone has their own individual taste. For example I love wearing platforms since I’m 5′ tall. They make me feel tall and elegant and I’m a sucker for a huge cocktail ring.

Jemima Kirke is My 70s Style Crush

13 May

My personal style is very ADD.  Sometimes I wake up and feel like dressing like the prim and proper girls from the 50’s.  Those are the days that I may have a little extra time in the morning.  That look takes me a while.  I need to set my hair in hot rollers. Do the scotch tape trick for cat eyes.  I really don’t know how they did it back then on a daily basis.  I stumbled onto this on tumblr and it seems this girl has the look down packed. It’s too cute! It also happens to be the look my friend Jeniretro has masterfully perfected. Seriously, if you’re in N.Y. check her out!

As for me, I swoon when I see a polyester jumpsuit, I get excited at the sight of a fringe jacket. I love the 70’s with their clogs and dresses that flow in the wind. I bought tickets to see Fleetwood Mac in October and I told my boyfriend I was going in a long skirt and a shawl (Stevie Nicks Style). He said “I don’t think people are going to show up that way, you’re going to look like you’re in costume.” Well, I really don’t care, I’m going to twirl away in my shawl.

That brings me to Jemima Kirke who plays Jessa in HBO GIRLS. It seems her personal style closely resembles her characters style.  As much as I love dressing from different eras, if you don’t do it right you may end up looking like an extra in a movie, the hell with it, dress however you want.  Jemima Kirk looks like she found the perfect balance.

Your style is your own. Own it! Be authentic and be yourself.  Don’t dress, act or do things because you think “What will other people think?” The world wants you, not an imitation of someone else.  Whats your personal style?

XOXO,

Michelle
