I’d been seeing images of this chic lady flying around on tumblrs and such, and I finally figured out who it is! Her name is Blair, she blogs her outfits at Atlantic-Pacific, and, she lives in San Francisco! I’m going to be keeping my eyes peeled around town for this new girl crush… Doesn’t she have loads of style??
PS – Today’s post is a double feature! My friend Leo sent me these videos and I had to share with you. Filmmaker Tyler Cullen went around NYC asking people what song they were listening to and made a video out of it, and it inspired a whole series of these throughout the world! It’s such a fun peak into these cities, both for the street life you see and for the musical choices of its residents!
And, sometimes the answers are really surprising… don’t you always wonder what people are listening to on the street and kind of try to guess based on their outfit or mood or whatever? Well, many of these I never would have guessed! And I wonder if some of these folks would have ever admitted that they listen to some of this stuff otherwise. I’ve watched a bunch of them, and let me tell you, Lady Gaga truly is everywhere.
Just a round up for you of some recent favorite street style finds posted to the “tumblr”– formerly Editor’s Chair. Especially loving for summer: silk button-ups, scalloped edges, white lace, heels with cropped jeans (white, black, or denim), mini dresses, and as usual, blazers. Emmanuelle Alt remains the coolest tomboy ever. Check out the tumblr for the full size pics and more!
I never knew I had any princess-y daydreams until there was Kate Middleton.
Honestly. Didn’t grow up playing princesses or thinking about marrying a prince. I actually asked my mom recently if I ever played with dolls or dressup or house or really anything girly, and she answered “No, you really just liked to read.” Ha. (#nerdalert)
I didn’t even really care about the royal wedding in the weeks leading up to it. But then. She wore that utterly perfect Alexander McQueen wedding dress and everything changed. It still wasn’t so much that I then wanted to be a princess, it was just that I knew she was going to play the part of a princess to a tee, and watching it would be so much fun.
So I’m here to admit, I am absolutely living vicariously through her every wardrobe choice. She is the ultimate princess. Polished but not overdone, ladylike but not stuffy, and pretty much always stunning. The princess we all hope we would be if we ever were a princess.
And I kind of like how consistent her style is, she seems to follow three rules for princess-appropriate, classic, flattering clothing about 85% of the time: high necks, cinch everything at the waist, and unless it’s floor length, it should hit just above the knee.
I still don’t envy her life (endless commitments, so much pressure, your every move is watched, fame sounds horrible to me), but I do enjoy watching how she lives it.
Here’s to hoping Kate Middleton will be the next Jackie O. of style!
