My style Icon FOREVER.

Hello Lovelies,
I hope the week's begun on a good note for you'll. Mine has been one, long sleep-a-thon. Not bad, I hear you say? Very very bad, I have exams coming up and its time I get my act together. One post I've been meaning to do for a long while so here goes. Its a little personal yet its an answer I think most my readers and friends need to know. Very often people ask me who my fashion icon is. Of course, there are answers customised for different people. I've said Anna Wintour to some, Audrey Hepburn to others and Sarah Jessica Parker to yet some other people. However, very realistically my style icon ever since I even remotely understood what fashion or an individualistic style meant, has been my sister. Till the time we were in school, I think I made it awfully obvious that I tried to emulate her style. From her skimpy short tops with stretchable jeans look, to wearing colorful loops(Ewww)..from wearing 'short' skirts to wearing white ruffled knotted tops with platform heels, I've copied all her looks. Even when she went away to Uni and I was still in school, I used to ask her to buy two of whatever she shopped for herself. She's married now and I'm in Uni and I still look up to her for now very-Aussie fashion sense. It is so inspiring to see her wear classic designer clothing with so much elan and yet pull off a casual minimalistic look with hawainas with the same amount of ease. From her sunglasses to her choice of accessories and oooooooh her make up, everything makes me feel like a little girl in a barbie store. And then there's her collection of designer bags and shoes which I hope to inherit someday :D Here are some of her looks which I randomly put together for this post. Tell me what you think.
Loving the Tony Biancos
Perfectly put together for a day out with Husband :)
Sister and I in front of the Opera House :)
And then she manages to look so fly even in a saree

  5. She is gorgeous and incredibly stylish. I love that you place her as your style icon over the likes of Audrey Hepburn and La Wintour. Whilst I am as Anna-obsessed as the rest of the fashion world, my personal style icon has always been my grandmother. She is the most elegant person I have ever met and I have never (not even at 6am christmas morning, or on a rainy family walk) seen her looking anything less than immaculately chic. Anna Dello Russo may be fabulous, and Carine Roitfeld may be fierce but it's nice to have an ever-so-slightly more accessible icon sometimes. X
