This chick is my new girl crush: Annabelle Dexter-Jones. I’m totally digging her slept-in, dress-to-party (not dress-to-impress) look.
Chloë Sevigny’s recent statement in an interview with The New York Times revealed she was “bored with fashion shows”. Perhaps we don’t need to find inspiration from a single source, but it’s still the single most influential platform to present fashion to the world. Whether or not it’s done creatively… that’s another story.
But like her, I enjoy finding my inspiration from the simplest ideas, in an almost passive form that seeps into us slowly. Maybe it starts with a song, a memory, and then the idea builds, and I’m moved by something that mirrors the emotions these ideas elicit.
But Dexter-Jones has this carefree style that I’m really into right now. Just do what moves you and go with it. Doesn’t have to be a runway :)
