the chloester

chloe sevigny gets so many mixed reviews when it comes to her fash. and i'll totally admit that, although i've come to truly love her vintage-y grandma-y + high fashion sort of style, there was definitely a time where i'd look at photos of her and go, "say whaaaa?" before i really developed an appreciation for how strong her sense of personal style really is.

thus, i LOVED her shoot with elle this month. it's impeccably styled, and i simply love the subtle details of everything she's wearing. the textured tights, the humongo gold accessories, perfect shoes...all founded in my very favorite thing -- an ebony palate. but what i love most is that as i paged through it, i was instantly inspired to create new combos from pieces in my own closet. like the beautiful scarf kate gave me than i want to style with my favorite black jumpsuit. and fabulous new ways to play with my oversized navy blazer (and the new tux black vest i acquired while thrifting earlier this week).

i really love an editorial that inspires new ideas and sartorial creativity...feels so good, doesn't it?

“I definitely spend the most money on shoes,” she admits. “Partly because vintage footwear can be a little funky—in a bad way. I like to keep things pretty simple up top and then go weird with the shoes.”

“I’m single, so I’m trying to do an overall overhaul,” she says with a laugh. “The look I’m going for is very ’80s supermodel. It’s time to be sexy."

love her. love love when people can articulate their personal style, or at least the journey they're making with it.
