Of Streetstyle Girl Crushes


I'm not exactly the first person in the blogosphere to have one, and I haven't shown half the dedication of Dreamecho or Fashion Nation when it came to sleuthing out the identities of theirs ( Rei Shito and Louise The Red-Haired Girl* respectively, whom I also have a giant style crush on)- also it's kind of unnecessary in this case, but I can never fail to love Yasmin Sewell**, not only for wearing her clothes so amazingly, but also (and more importantly) because she looks so bloody happy just to be there, being herself. Which is part of the point of clothes, really, if they help you do just that..

*at least that's what I call her. No surname=me inventing description.

**pictures above by the Sartorialist. Turns out she's left Brown's and is setting up a consultancy. It does sound good..

Yasmin Sewell is one of mine as well, I think I have every one of her streetstyle pictures saved to the 'Inspiration' folder. Her hair is just perfect and she doesn't overdose on seasonal trends.
She left Browns quite a while back didn't she? Good luck to her anyway!
Glad to see your absence wasn't long!

Yasmin is amazingly dressed ALL the time....

I love the first shot especially - I agree, she looks so comfortable in her own skin, not necessarily decked out in all the bells-n-whistles etc, and you've got to love her for that.

oh, and I love her hair, how I envy her hair...

Love the hair too! Spend so much time flat iron it that seeing her just brightens up my days! Life's wonderful even with frizzy hair ;)

My crush is also Louise the Redhead. Your crush is delightful as well.

"...because she looks so bloody happy just to be there, being herself. Which is part of the point of clothes, really, if they help you do just that.."
