Lou Doillon is a long-term girl crush of mine. Daughter of Jane Birkin and Jacques Doillon, this model, actress, and singer, is as cool as they come (I would often see her at Paris Fashion Week and just stare…). I also just found out that she has a son called Marlowe. Spooky! I’ve also loved her style as (at the risk of sounding like a very scratched record) it’s always just so effortlessly cool. Part rock chick, part grunge, part sexy tomboy, I literally couldn’t find a single picture of her where she looks even remotely uncool… Leather (biker jackets, skirts), denim, blouses with ruffles/frills and/or billowing sleeves, vintage style floral tea dresses, band tees, oversized boyfriend style coats and jackets, and more denim are all staples. Oh, and the occasional Chanel tweed jacket thrown in for good measure. Nice. She then alternatives sexy heels with boots. Anyway, I kind of love it all. It’s a bit of a ‘mash-up’ I guess, but I love that too. And finally the hair – always, always messy – never even the remotest whiff of a blow-dry! My kind of mama.
ps: can we just talk about the New Look blouse from last week’s post for a minute? Mine’s arrived (the black) and I have barely taken it off! It’s so great, and such a bargain. There are still a few left. I sized up (a lot!) – I actually ordered the 14 and the 16 (and I’m a 10-12, ok a 12) and kept the 16. It’s perfect.
pps: The Outnet have just a had a drop of See by Chloe, and there are some really lovely bits for fab prices. I’ll try and do a round-up tomorrow, but for now, click here…
