Style Icons.

Monday, January 9, 2012

This year, I celebrated two Christmases: one on December 25th, as always, and another this past Friday, when Margaux decided to clean out her closet. As you can imagine, this was a very exciting day, and I now have an extra suitcase - stuffed to the gills - to bring back with me to New York later this week. 

When it comes to clothing, I say, the quirkier the better. A few of my fashion favorites: the Rolling Stones. Eva Fontanelli. Iris Apfel. (Did you see her interview on Into the Gloss earlier this month? I loved her opening line: "Getting older ain't for sissies, I'll tell you.")


Who are your style icons? Anyone with especially oddball taste that I should know about?

Have you seen the movie Happy Go Lucky? I think you would appreciate her quirkiness!

rebecca said...

ok, so she's not really an icon, but i've always admired katie holmes sense of style. always classy, preppy, and a little tomboyish.

rebecca said...

also, don't you wish iris apfel was your kooky old neighbor?

Nina said...

Love your choices! Mine are Sofia Coppola, Patti Smith, Kate Moss, Jimi Hendrix and Robert Plant in his Led Zeppelin days. Happy Monday!

Shoko said...

Jessica - I haven't, but it's on my Netflix queue. Can't wait to check it out!

Rebecca - Katie Holmes is so beautiful. And yes, Iris as kooky old neighbor would be a dream come true. Iris as best friend forever would be even better :)

Nina - Yes! Robert Plant for sure! And Patti Smith - how could I have left her off the list?!

In terms of style, I think Kate Winslet is the cat's pajamas. She's so classy. But you know who else I love? Chloe Sevigny. So yeah, I like quirky and classy, and I think it's so wonderful when you can make both work together!

BIKBIK AND RORO said...

Audrey Tautou and Mette Lindberg of The Asteroids Galaxy Tour! o, and Zooey Deschanel :)

Shoko said...

April - Well said! Quirky and classy is definitely the way to go.

Bikbik & Roro - Audrey Tautou, for the win!

Diane Keaton all the way! My goodness has that woman ever had a day where she didn't look AMAZING!?

Shoko said...

Kimia - That is so sweet! Yes, that was me - I think you're the first to have made that connection. Though I was not really getting married, I had such a blast (and loved that outfit)!

Quindome, Anna, and Lele - Great choices! Natalie Portman is so chic, and I've always admired Agyness Deyn's bold choices. And Diane Keaton - she's a legend!
