Dressing Down

As I was doing the fashion week blog rounds, I stumbled across this post on Vanessa Jackman's street style blog and was reminded of my love for stylist Marina Muñoz's elegant and boyish way of dressing. She has been a fashion inspiration of mine for a long time ever since one of my friends emailed me a link to a feature on her over at Jak & Jil blog with the subject heading 'YOU'. I love her philosophy to dressing, the way she plays with the details - a string belt mixed with basic white jeans and a navy jacket from the little boys section. I really admire the way Muñoz incorporates feminine pieces into a skeleton wardrobe consisting largely of menswear - she doesn't need to sacrifice comfort in order to remain grown-up and graceful.

I find that if something looks good on me, I tend to stick to it like men's shirts, hats, trousers and simple shift dresses. - Marina Muñoz
