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
Oh the joys of packing a wardrobe worthy of moving to the most stylish city in the world! My imminent move to Paris has been causing me sartorial anguish in bucket loads! Not only is my studio matchbox sized (I'm seriously considering my microwave as potential shoe storage) but I have the added pressure of Parisian style to contend with! However, whilst drowning in a sea of wooly tights, polka dots and denim I came across this inspiring collage of Gallic beauty Clémence Poésy from Elle Ukraine and was reminded of my number one fashion rule - simple is always chic. Problem almost solved.
