Unlikely Fashion InspirationPosted: May 24, 2009
… Not because shes skinny but because as I stated in a post earlier this year, I don’t really do hippie chic. Having said that, I do love Nicole Ritchie’s style because it suits her so well and its consistent. Regardless of what trends come and go Nicole Ritchie generally sticks to her boho aesthetic which makes her look appear more personally picked and less stylist assisted than someone like say- Beyonce who always has the latest thing however ugly it is and thus appears to be more styled than Nicole- though I don’t doubt for a moment that she also has a stylist (still with Rachel Zoe?)
This is the first outfit post I’ve done on here (trying on clothes in a fitting room doesn’t count) but I’m so pleased with the result I’ve just got to share what I wore today to become (fairy) godmother to my friend’s daughter. I originally was going to wear this dress but while testing it out at home I discovered that it rides up when I’m seated plus I don’t think its well suited to a christening. Its more “club with friends” than “church with family” so I dashed off and bought the hippie number at the last minute.
Never worn a maxi dress before and I think I like it.
Forgive the dishevelled hair. Photo was taken at the end of the day.
