God, I hope I look this freakin’ good when summer rolls up.
I think I’ve kind of realised that Chloe Sevigny is my fashion icon. Just a bit. I don’t mean in the sense that I copy everything she does and I HAVE to rush out and buy everything she’s wearing (which would be ridiculous, (a) I am not made of money and (b) I have my own personal style). I just mean that I really admire how she puts things together; she recognises her best assets and plays to her strengths. She may be middle-aged (well, 37) but she always has a really youthful, playful look. Some of her outfits remind me of a girl who’s inherited some beautiful pieces from her mother, which gives her a touch of classy aged-ness (if that’s such a thing) without aging her.
She always looks vibrant, always a smile on her face. She’s glamourous and classically beautiful. And another thing I love about her is that she re-wears pieces she likes! Like those Opening Ceremony buckle shoes that kept popping up everywhere, and the shoes and sunglasses she’s wearing in the photos above. I just get the feeling she’s a bit more human than most celebrities, with a real wardrobe and favourite things.
Excellent work, Miss Sevigny.
I think I’m comfort-eating again. Feel like I’m getting stuck in a rut. My timetable is a bit sparse at the moment which means too much time at home, eating because I’m bored or I don’t want to work. I can feel and see the change in myself; losing confidence, dreading leaving the house, hating those around me that seem so happy and secure in themselves. I was hoping I’d never get like this again, but, unfortunately I can feel it happening.
Back to square one, I guess.
