my style icons
We all admire other women’s style - especially the glamorous ones. Here are four women that I hold high upon the style pedestal: (should we Canadian ladies worry that they’re all American?)
Charlotte Moss - Interior Designer Extraordinaire
I love the Fabricut advertising campaign that they did with Charlotte…
The fabric collection is wonderful too…
I love her because she does gutsy interiors with tons of personality…
Plus it’s always fun to watch someone completely secure in their own style who isn’t afraid to show it off.
A Lady of Ladies - what did we do before Kate Spade?
How can’t we admire Kate Spade?
Even if you don’t love her style, you have to respect the clarity of vision she embodies in her name-sake brand (or at least I do).
I love it that there’s an alternative to the disposable fashion we see so often nowadays.
I don’t like the word “classy” but Kate has it in spades.
It’s interesting that it’s so difficult to find good photos of Kate (the person) - perhaps the pressure of always appearing lady-like is too much?
Instant Empire Builder (or at least it seems like it), Tory Burch
Well it sure wasn’t hard to find pictures of Tory.
She has beautiful pictures all over the place - there’s no question, the girl knows how to market her brand.
And she makes for great people-watching with a glamorous NY/Hamptons lifestyle with three young sons in tow, to boot.
I’m envious of someone who can build a gazillion-dollar empire on tunics and flats (two of my favourite things ; )
(And few handbags thrown in for good measure.)
She makes fashion-world domination look effortless - what a hoot.
New Kid on the Block and the only West Coast Gal, Trina Turk
Here’s another fun lady to watch…
She’s a fabric-design Queen with a whole California-vibe going on.
She also loves tunics - I think that has to be the next category of products for the cobistyle empire!
I love the upbeat energy Trina exudes, both personally, and through her products.
Nothing has ever drawn me to travel to LA but if I do, I’ll be sure to look up her stores.
So those are my 4 ladies of style for today anyway…write a note and tell us yours.
