It has taken years to figure out my personal style. A lot of trial and error went through into refining my style. What I’ve have found out about my style is that it is always changing. I like to refer to my style as a “melting pot” or a mixture of different styles. I like to experiment with clothes and trends.
The women below are the women I look up to when it comes to fashion. They have a sense of self-confidence and they know who they are and they aren’t ashamed of showing it off through their fashion choices. On a fashion level I connect with these women because their style is similar to mine and I admire the way they dress. Most of these women have the job that I dream of having one day and the confidence that goes with it.
Leandra Medine has been one of my “style gods” since I found her blog The Man Repeller. Although she wasn’t that successful in man repelling because she is married, the blog doesn’t pertain to how-to-get-rid-of-men it’s simply saying to dress for yourself and be who you are even if your fashion choices may not attract the opposite sex. But you do have to admire her husband for loving a women with such interesting fashion choices. I hope someday to have a man who understands the way I dress and how I express myself and he wouldn’t be embarrassed and would be proud to have me as his significant other.
On another note, I love her book she published in 2013, which is called, you guessed it, Man Repeller. I have re-read chapters in this book over and over and it still makes me happy to read it. My favorite chapters are the Hermès Clutch and the Harem Pants. Leandra Medine has a way of incorporating humor, fashion, a growing of age story, and love all in one little memoir that makes it so easy to connect to.
Chiara Ferragni is a new style icon for me. I would see her pictures all over Pinterest and would appreciate her bold style choices. She really is the woman who started it all. She was one of the first few to start sharing photos of outfits online and through that gathered a large following. She is the ultimate business women of the 21 century. Thanks to Ferragni bloggers now have more power in the fashion world. I admire her business ethic for showing women that they can move up in the business world.
Miroslava Duma is the most stylist woman I have ever seen before. Never have I ever seen a woman with such a great eye for shape, color, pattern, and details. It is as if she is a walking, talking fashion dream. I’m sure she is the dream girl to take a picture of during fashion week. Honestly, If I could dress like her everyday I would because she knows how to make a women feel and look powerful in her clothes.
“Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” – Rachel Zoe
I remember when I was a little girl and I would watch her reality tv show and think she was so glamorous. I really do think that Rachel Zoe is the first style icon I had for myself. She is a stylist, which is my dream job and we both have a appreciation for jewelry. I believe that Rachel Zoe was the one to inspire me to become a stylist and choose a career in the fashion industry.
