Everybody needs someone to look up to…

I am constantly inspired by fashionable women everywhere. And although I have a preference for real women (as opposed to celebrities) I think these two women straddle the line between fame and normalcy pretty stylishly. Below are two of my current obsessions: Yasmin Sewell and Leigh Lezark. Notice the nuances in their style: a.) a neutral palette (mostly black/navy) which they pepper with bright accent colors, b.) a distinct, ownable hairstyle, c.) angles, d.) asymmetry, e.) attitude and f.) muted femininity. I should tattoo these attributes on my ribcage. Dramatic? Oh hell yes….  g.) drama.

Both of these ladies seem über petite (and maybe a little hungry) but I think they shape their tiny frames with just the right amount of scale. Well done. Bravo. Love the hair. Now go! Meet up with Kim and eat some cupcakes.
