I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that my style inspiration is Chloe Sevigny. She's plenty of girls' icon and she rightfully wears the crown.Although I usually derive my inspiration from girls on the street and street style blogs, she's one celebrity that I can undoubtedly, without shame say shes my icon. I truly believe she is my fashion counterpart. She coasts through different styles all the time. Whether it be grungy or really girly, feminine outfits or the mix of both in one. She's nailed the 90's resurgence right on the head and some can even debate that she had brought the style back entirely on her own. When her opening ceremony line came out critics were so against the 90's trends coming back but low and behold its here and we even have this generations CKOne ad to prove it.
Although she is in her 30's and doesn't dress her age, she makes ageless dressing seem like no big deal. If she could pull off looks that don't confine to one's age, then she gives hope to other girls to do the same. Who said if you're 30 you have to look 30.
There hasn't been a visit to TheFashionSpot: Chloe Sevigny without me uttering "I Love This Girl". She truly is an icon.
I saw this photo and immediately thought this outfit is probably the outfit that I would sum up my entire wardrobe and the root behind this post.
the New York Times' article on Chloe;
CHLOË SEVIGNY, “Big Love” star, clothing designer.
WHAT I’M WEARING NOW I have a path of vintage shops in the East Village that I walk around to. The dress is from one them — Atomic Passion, I think. It was really long, like most Edwardian and Victorian dresses, and I cut off one of the tiers. The cardigan is part of my fall collection for Opening Ceremony. It has wool elbow patches and nice, big pockets to shove your hands into when you’re feeling awkward or insecure. My Chanel purse was a Christmas present to myself. It’s like playing Tetris trying to fit all my stuff in it. The boots are an old pair of Prada’s, and the tights are from the Sock Man. I love that place, but the guy’s the grumpiest man on earth. He’s like the Soup Nazi, but he sells socks.
STYLE CREDO I’m not feeling these modern, futuristic looks. It’s too hard. I love a frilly floral, and I always will. And I like minis. I tried to do a pencil skirt, but it looked too old. Lately I’ve been trying to dress sexier, but my version is still a little sad and frumpy and alternative. I get concerned that I don’t dress age appropriate, but at 34, I figure I can still pull it off for a couple more years.
MY INSPIRATION The kids I see on the street. Sometimes I sit in Tompkins Square Park and just check out all the looks. I recently got this book “Skins & Punks.” It really inspired my new collection. And my own style — I just bought a pair of cherry red Doc Martens.
ON MY WISH LIST Perfect jeans. After all these years, I still haven’t found them. Right now I’m looking for some light blue ones for spring.
