Top it off with a top hat!

Mystery is the number one quality that draws people's attention. The best way to achieve mystique- sport a top hat. A hat is the most noticeable accessory that a person can wear and the quickest way to change an outfit from generic to cool and edgy.

I purchased my first top hat during my trip to Glasgow. I always wear it with jeans and a simple white t-shirt, paired with combat boots, cowboy boots, or for the ultimate "boy look"-- oxford shoes.

Anita Pallenberg

Anita Pallenberg is not just known for her romantic relationships with band members of the Rolling Stones, but also her innate sense of style. She was known for mixing vintage with designer, and feathered scarfs with wide rimmed hats and tailored suits. She always rocked edgy bangs and high boots with bare legs. 

I personally love her thick leather belts that she paired with everything from t-shirt dresses to bell bottoms, and her chunky costume jewelry. She had the ability to make inexpensive things look like a "million bucks!"And of course I cannot forget to mention her iconic fur jackets.

Factory Girl

There are certain moments in my life that have had a greater influence on my style than others. Watching Factory Girl was one of those moments. The film is about Andy Warhol's muse; Edie Sedgewick. Warhol made her a "superstar" for simply just being herself; a style icon. She was not afraid to wear animal print, and mix it with different patterns and textures. She wore hats like no other, and ear rings that were to die for. Her style was so effortless and unique, I couldn't help but not want to look just like her.

Don't ever shelter yourself from any form of creativity, wether it be art, music, film, fashion, or some individual who is just plain interesting. When you expose yourself to new things, they influence you and help shape who you are as a person.
Don't miss YOUR "leopard jacket" moment!

Debbie Harry - style

I love Debbie Harry's fine features and chiseled cheekbones. She is one of the very few people who can look cool with bleach blonde locks. She pulls off tight denim jackets and vests so well, and her iconic graphic t-shirts and knee high boots are so badass.
