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?

Blairs shoes,Serenas Dress and Jennys Hair..Oh how Ive missed you Gossip Girl! season 3

17 Sep

So The Premier of Gossip Girl was on Monday, September 14. I haven’t seen it yet. I’ll catch it tonight on the CW. But I did check out some of the pics and as always they did a fabulous job in the fashion department. I personally like each girls style but I change my mood and style often. I’d suffocate dressing preppy like Blair all the time and I dont agree with all of Serenas choices. hmm, maybe because shes a tall slender blond girl and Im 5 feet tall, so obviously  we would look totally different in the same dress. But I pulled some pics I really like.

Check out Blairs gorgeous shoes in this one

Blairs shoes! to die for

Jennys hair has grown a little longer and I love the contrast of her porcelin skin matched with this deep red lipstick.

jenny You have to love how Serena makes anything look good. I really like this black dress that can double as a shirt.

The dress! The shoes! So perfect

I’m kind of excited that I havent seen this episode yet. I’m looking foward to it.

Thanks for looking and I’ll be bargain hunting for similar looks.

LOVE,
