Ok, that’s it. I need to talk to Mr. 2012. These weeks are lasting way too long! Anyone else feel like Tuesday was a Friday? Hate that.

Good thing I’ve got all kinds of exciting shtuff happening this weekend. My shopping/styling sessions with Mastercard’s Priceless NY members (remember when I told you about it?) commences tomorrow morning, followed by watching the 49ers beat the Saints with both of my brothers (what a rarity!), followed by din din with my whole fam-damily! Lucky me!

In other news, I’ve got lots of exciting goodies to share with you, some of which are featured in this post and others that you’ll just have to keep checking back for! You can also keep up with me on instagram (@runwayhippie) 0r my webstagram for you non iphone holders cause lemme tell you somethin’, I post a lot of sneaky peekies on there!

Have a fan-tab-u-lous weekend! Miss you already!

It was only a year ago that I bookmarked a photo of Clémence Poésy wearing a monochromatic grey outfit and I’ve since become an avid follower of her style. Unless given an occasion to dress up, Clémence’s style feels effortless and casual in simple skinny jeans and loose fitting tops - a look I’m quite familiar with. I like that she brings out her girly, elegant style for those red carpet appearances but keeps things minimal and androgynous for her everyday looks. And I obviously love the fact that she’s equally as obsessed with layering as I am - three cheers for the approaching cooler climates so that we can all layer away!

Clémence is religiously photographed during Paris Fashion Week and I can only imagine what kind of goodies she’ll be breaking out for those street style candids! But until then, feast your eyes on some of her past look and get inspired!

Also, anyone who recognizes her from Harry Potter gets a gold star.

Out on a Brim

December 16, 2010

Yesterday as I was doing some of my Christmas shopping at All Saints I couldn’t help but try on their Salerno Fedora, a perfectly sculpted menswear inspired hat that I ended up wearing around the store while shopping for friends and family. I didn’t end up buying it which I now kind of regret, but it reminded me just how much I love a good fedora. In the summertime I’m rarely seen without one of my straw ones (see here), and in the fall/winter I find nothing adds texture to a bundled up look quite like my vintage felt fedora.

While some trends may come and go, the fedora trend has stood the trend test of time in womens wear. In 1937 silver screen siren Carole Lombard looked particularly fantastic wearing a fur fedora (see below), and today it’s impossible to browse through a street style blog or tabloid magazine without seeing at least one style icon sporting one of these gangster-inspired hats. So, in my efforts to find new ways to wear my fedoras instead of buying a new one, here are some sartorial inspirations for rocking these ever popular sturdy brimmed, wooly felt hats.
