GET THE LOOK:: KATE BOSWORTH

25 Mar

This post is the result of another of my online shopping ‘research’ sessions. As I’ve said before, when buying items online I often scour the internet for photographic evidence of the piece being worn in a variety of ways, mostly because it is difficult from staring at the limited number of product images to know what it will look like in real life. Will I love it? Will I actually wear it? What can I wear it with? Researching Jewelmint purchases is always made very easy by the fact that Kate Bosworth can always be found wearing her pieces in her everyday life. Now this may be a very strategic marketing decision but it gets me every time! If Kate Bosworth is wearing it, then I’ve chosen well, right? Take for example the Lost City necklace featured in this look. Kate’s wearing it in 3 of the photos above! With her ombre denim shirt, a striped henley, and even over a plain black tee. The Lost City necklace was one of the first pieces I bought from Jewelmint, and while I don’t wear necklaces all that often I find this one goes with everything. Oh yeah and here’s a fun fact: Kate Bosworth shares her stylist (Cher Coulter) with none other than… Rosie Huntington-Whiteley! Whose style I also admire and have featured here on the blog. Apparently Rosie told her assistant she wanted to be dressed by the same stylist as KB, and I don’t blame her!
So really all of this credit should be going to Cher, who coincidentally also designs for Jewelmint. So Cher, if you’re reading, I love your work!

Have you all tried out Jewelmint yet? What are your favs?

THIS WEEK ON:: ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITELEY

28 Feb

Most girls might see a gold lamé blazer and think: “I could wear that on New Year’s Eve!”…Not Rosie. 
No she wore hers over a white tee and jeans to In-N-Out . (For those who don’t know, it’s a fast food burger joint). And I love her for it! You may notice that most of Rosie’s outfits are variations on the same outfit: skinny (waxed) jeans, tee, blazer, ankle boots. I respect a woman who knows her style, knows what works for her, knows what’s flattering, and is fully confident in strutting it all day every day. To the airport, to an event, to a burger joint. All one strong look. I imagine that would also make it quite easy to get dressed in the morning as well. I’ve gotta work on focusing my wardrobe down to this effect, and not get distracted while shopping…… “oh neon! that’s cute.”

THIS WEEK ON:: NICOLE RICHIE (BANGS!)

30 Dec

Nicole Richie Street Style hair bangs
It’s here. Again. That craving for a haircut and style that are incompatible with my hair and always will be (read: thick and curly). It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve taken a Nicole Richie photo into the salon and said “I want this.” Her fringe is a fabulous accessory and ups the chic factor in every one of her looks. But for me they have more of a 5th grader affect. I have done bangs before, and I rued them every day that I had them. But now that they’re finally grown out, I kinda want them back! It’s reading leblogdebetty, gets me every time. In fact I tweeted about it and Betty favorited my tweet! Eep! I’ve even started a Pinterest board called Bangs… I know. I’ve got it bad.

THIS WEEK ON:: KATE BOSWORTH

My favorite thing about KB’s style is the laid back, effortless feel to all of her looks. When defining my own sense of style ‘effortless’ is right at the top of my list of desired traits. I’d like to think that my clothes don’t wear me, and that’s always a consideration when trying new trends (especially in a crowd of non-bloggers). It can be really difficult to define your style and keep shopping focused when we have so many fabulous examples of different styles on blogs that influence us daily, and sometimes I worry that my look is kind of all over the place. But I take comfort in the fact that, in this post Kate can be seen in a beautiful 1950’s lemon lace frock AND an Olsen-esque all-black maxi look too.

I’m fully aware that Kardashian waves are in right now, but how natural does Kate’s hair look in all of these pics? Even in her most formal looks she keeps her hair naturally down or simply pulls it back and away from her face. I think that definitely adds to her effortless appeal. Unfortunately if I let my hair down with such little styling I’d have a fro on my hands. But the point is, less can be more when it comes to hair. Oh, and makeup! That is, if she even wears ANY. Maybe just a bit of mascara to frame her best accessory: those mis-matched eyes.

THIS WEEK ON:: KATE BOSWORTH

5 Sep

I believe Kate Bosworth has a movie coming out and possibly a new beau, but let’s be honest who really cares?? Let’s have a look at what she’s wearing!

We can all appreciate the OTT style of Anna Dello Russo, but the best element of Kate Bosworth’s style is the ease of it. It’s as if she takes 5 minutes to get ready in the morning yet she always walks out the door looking smashing. And I know I’m attracted to the prospect of 5-minute fabulosity. I’ve been studying these photos with textbook-like precision in the hopes that it might influence me when I’m running out the door (late for something). 
Of course Kate has a secret weapon on her side – and that’s Isabel Marant. Just try counting the number of Marant pieces pictured above, I dare you.

Thank you thank you to everyone who has voted for me in the Bloggers’ Wardrobe competition!
