Lady Style: Kirsten Dunst

Oh, Kiki. You guys know I love her. Not only was she awesome long ago in films like The Virgin Suicides and Eternal Sunshine, but she continues to make weird and interesting film choices.She always looks like she couldn’t care less about what’s happening around her, which is a quality I admire and respect. I kinda feel like she’s the next Parker Posey. Also, her style is bananas in the best way. Typically I don’t feature current, skinny, blonde women on Lady Style because that’s not really my look, but Kiki’s so unconventional that I can’t help loving her.

First off, girl knows how to wear a braid crown and look super-feminine.

But she can also look great in a menswear-inspired look.

She’s clearly unafraid to wear yellow, which I really appreciate. I wear yellow multiple times a week (in fact, if I were Shelby in Steel Magnolias, I would call it “my signature color”), and people reliably tell me that they “just can’t wear yellow.” Whatever, y’all! We can all wear yellow if we believe in ourselves. Look at Kiki in this yellow outfit that looks like a sofa in a good way.

And a gorgeous yellow shirt that I covet.

Oh, and this bold and beautiful yellow dress. You go, Kiki.

She’s dressed kinda like an 80’s secretary in this outfit that I LOVE.

And then there’s this dress, which totally stole my heart because SO MANY PATTERNS! Apparently it was by Miu Miu way back in 2010.

Mostly what I love so much about Kiki is that she seems to truly not care what other people think about fashion. She rarely wears a bra. She often wears unfeminine styles. She’s doesn’t mind that yellow is commonly regarded as an unflattering color. She’s just doing her, which is a fashion philosophy I can get behind.

Wednesday Links (Relating to Solange Knowles)


Sorry, guys, all I care about right now is Solange Knowles.

This article by Kate Spencer was on HelloGiggles yesterday, and it pretty clearly outlines why Solange is the best human being ever.

Her blog is called My Damn Blog, and it’s full of pictures of her looking gorgeous. I mean, that outfit in the picture above? I need it!

And obviously Sandcastle Disco is the best song ever recorded.

Oh, and she was on Yo Gabba Gabba because DUH OF COURSE SHE WAS.

I used to think Beyonce was the most beautiful woman in the world, but now I just don’t know what to think. I hope you guys will support me in my time of questioning.

Screw You, J. Crew

I just spent 45 minutes taking in a boxy thrift store denim shirt so that I could recreate a shirt I saw at J. Crew.

This is the face of a woman who just saved herself $90. Also this is the first post of my new blog called “Screw You, J. Crew,” wherein I just recreate their outfits out of stuff I find for almost free. Seriously, it’s a denim shirt. Give me a break.

Because Obviously I Wish I Had Zooey Deschanel’s Wardrobe

As you probably know by now, I love the show New Girl. My boyfriend and I watch it together every Tuesday night, although I think we’re watching it for different reasons. I mean, yeah, we both watch it for the laughs, but he (like most dudes) has a little bit of a crush on Zooey D., and I (like most girls) just want to wear all of her outfits.

The coolest thing about her clothes is that they are actually semi-attainable most of the time. I mean, okay, I am not actually going to spend $168 dollars on this dress from Anthropologie, but I did see it up close when I was there last weekend (not buying anything, touching everything and pretending it was mine, thinking about what it would be like if my bedroom was in the giant tent-thing they had set up in the middle of the store). Anyway, if you spend every episode of New Girl whispering, “Ohhhh, I want that dress,” then I have the sites for you!

You’re welcome, ladies. Let’s all buy some clothes we can technically afford but still can’t really afford.

PS- These were shorts the whole time! I really thought this was a skirt!
