Lauren Hutton

my friend Amy and i were sitting around gabbing the other day, browsing pinterest (which is the new looking through magazines together, i guess) and we got onto the topic of Lauren Hutton. i couldn’t quite believe that i hadn’t done a post on her yet, especially since i’ve covered some other favourite style icons, like Anjelica for example.

i have never been able to decide which Lauren is my favourite – Safari Lauren, Tomboy Lauren, glamorous Model Lauren, showing the kids how it’s done Lauren… either way, her infectious personality (and smile) always take center stage no matter what she’s doing.

i scoured the web to find my favourite Lauren Hutton pics – a lot of these are from Pinterest and Tumblr, as well as sites like The Fashion Spot, Ciao Vogue and the Life Magazine Archives. this one is for you, Amy.

Samantha Pleet for Wolverine 1000 Mile

Mariah of Quite Continental did an amazing job styling the lookbook of the F/W 2012 footwear collection by Samantha Pleet which she designed for Wolverine 1000 Mile – an American footwear company which has been in existence since 1883. says Mariah,

Working closely with Samantha and the great folks at Wolverine, I created a collection of looks inspired by the same amazing group of women who inspired Samantha’s designs. It was important to me to honor the spirit of adventure and independence and while creating looks for the modern woman, no matter if her adventures take her on safari in Kenya or on the subway downtown to the office. As a girl who wears men’s shoes on occasion, I really love the subtlety of the Samantha Pleet x Wolverine 1K Mile collection. Samantha doesn’t simply design men’s shoes for women, she combines the best of both worlds and has created something nuanced, nostalgic, but completely modern.

See the entire lookbook here. Footwear: Samantha Pleet for Wolverine 1000 Mile / Photography: Mikael Kennedy / Styling: Mariah Kunkel / Clothing: Brooklyn Dry Goods / Accessories: The Shiny Squirrel

ps: The Bonny Boot pretty much ticks all my boxes for boot of the year.

Check & Checked

i love plaid, even though it’s a “trend” that’s been around for years now. doubtless i will still love it long after it filters out of every department store. if i see a girl with a nice checked shirt tucked into good jeans or with a pair of well fit trousers i am guaranteed to turn and take a second look. so if you see me staring at you in the street, don’t be alarmed.

tomboy style

trawling through the archives of tomboy style by lizzie garrett is a favourite thing to do.

To define a tomboy requires searching far beyond the simple notion of wearing boy’s clothing. Tomboys have influenced the expanses of popular culture including fashion, film, music, and literature. Although the tomboy is often identified by clothing, what makes her wholly so is an inherent sense of confidence, rebelliousness, and adventure.
