Style Crushes



What is a style crush you may ask? I looked it up on Urbandictionary.com in hopes of providing a basic defintion, but alas, the entry does not exist! I was actually pretty shocked, and now I'm thinking of adding one myself.

Anyway, I'm sure we all have style crushes. Basically, a person to have a style crush on is someone with a sense of style you adore whom you often don't know personally. If you ask me, I find that it's impossible to stop glancing at someone who looks impeccably dressed. They may be someone who just has a style that you don't see on people, who just seems to wear everything well, who has the guts to pull off pieces you'd really like to, or even a person who looks like they walked out of a page from The Sartorialist or Facehunter.

I myself have a continual style crush on this girl in my program a year above me who I spotted last year. Don't get me wrong, she doesn't dress like she's walking off a runway or anything. But everything she wears is just so...effortlessly stylish. I'm in search of a nice, inexpensive men's dress shirt to replicate her common look of an oversized men's button-up with plain black tights. Not leggings, tights. I guess it's hard to describe, and I'm not really about to go up to her and take a picture haha. I ALSO have a girl crush (basically the same thing, except it pertains to taste in books, movies and music as well in someone who happens to be a girl) on my really good guy friend's ex-girlfriend. She's just really cute, and seems fun, PLUS she dresses all cute to boot.

Tell me about your style crushes! :)

Oh I know what you mean about style crushes! And those people on the street that just make you stare at them because they are impeccably dressed... One of my style crushes is Emma Watson.

BTW, my blog's address moved to http://www.fashionaddictgirl.com so if you have the time could you possibly change it on your blog roll. I would really appreciate it! Thanks!

i think the best style is one done effortlessly, although i have a friend who looks dressed like she's going clubbing every day and still looks fabulous. i guess it's all personal taste, amazing photograph
