Mary-Kate = My Idol

I am making a post about my fashion idol, miss Mary-Kate. Yes, she's over used. Yes, she's a tad bit on the really-really-I'm-too-skinny side. But I love [some] of her outfits. Well most of them. Well, take her closet, re-arrange the items, and I loveeeee it.


I don't know. She makes me so happy sometimes. I mean, look at the bag. The scarf. The tights. It's so...me. That's right, me. If I could become a mini-me and lose about 50 pounds I would so steal everything she owns.


You know, I can't even blame her for losing all that weight to begin with. Anorexia is a very difficult thing to explain, to be a part of, it's like you're losing control and to be in control you control your eating, just to an extreme. I kinda went through it, but hey, it was a fluke thing, blah blah blah I'm over it now. It was hard though, because your not in control, ever. I hope she got it/gets it under control.


So I guess that's it. Hate me if you want, but come on, how could you not love that last picture? Foget the person, wouldn't you love to walk outside in a regular beat up old thrifted t-shirt with tons of jewels on? Damn straight.

I agree with you! I'm just so glad her really homeless looking days are behind her. That was a dark time for MK, in every way imaginable.

This is going to sound really corny and [probably] insincere since it's the internet and everything, but I'm so glad that you're feeling better now!

I hate to say it, but I think you're onto something. I make so much fun of those girls, that I'd be a hypocrite to say I LOVE their style, but who am I trying to kid. I kind of DO love their style. Both of 'em, for different reasons. They are confident and have a kind of cool fuck 'em attitude that i appreciate.
ps-NYC dirt, comin' your way if u want it!!

mk and a are definitely not my style icons, but you have to respect that they can pull off a lot of crap others just couldn't even think about wearing! style is about being daring and they definitely have that...

ps your blog is pretty awesome- love the name! im linking you too :)

I like Audrey Hepburn. Classic, simple, last a lifetime. Mary Kate has really fashionable and trendy outfits, but in ten years, we'll think, what WAS that?

lena...I think thats how it is with all fashion styles these days, but everything comes back into style too. you might want to look up poulaines and see how silly they look but we wear a similar version of them just not as long. it comes and goes.maybe in the next "life", people will say they same thing (what the heck?) about both mk and ah
