Style to Steal: Karolina Kurkova

Karolina Kurkova is definitely my model girl-crush. She has an amazing body that can both rock the Victoria's Secret runway and the runways in Milan. She also has an incredibly classic and flattering personal style that I respond to. As you can see here she has a mastery of proportions, neatly pairing a slouchy black tee with a cropped blazer. And instead of letting the scarf flow free around her, obscuring her fabulous outfit, she has tucked the ends into the scarf around her neck making an eternity scarf. This image captures a look of hers that I would steal right off her back, skinny jeans, black tee, blazer, and scarf. Totally love. Here are some items for your to steal her look as well.

Style to Steal: Theres Alexandersson

Finally, back to blogging. It's been a long two weeks of midterms for us here at college, so I apologize for my shift in focus away from the blog towards my huge pile of school work. A lot has happened in the fashion world in the last month - and by "a lot" I mean NY, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks! I have always loved seeing models' street style. As they are all forced to have their hair done, make-up done and clothes worn in a certain way for a show, often to all look the same, it is refreshing to see them in their natural go-to styles. The girl I would like to point out today is Theres Alexandersson, a newcomer to the international runway scene. But it looks like she has some staying power as she wore three looks in the Calvin Klein show in NY, and later she walked in Dolce and Gabbana and Jil Sander in Milan and Chloe and Lanvin (two of my personal favorites) in Paris. And exiting Jil Sander, she was caught in an adorable fall floral dress appropriately layered with opaque tights, a buttery leather jacket, and a scarf - a perfectly put together fall look. Here's how to capture Theres' fall style.
