I am an admirer of people with a distinct style sense who keep you wondering just what they’ll be wearing next when you see them on social media.
Helen Lasichanh is such a person. Model, fashion designer, wife of Pharell Williams – this reclusive lady has caught my keen eye many times over the years. There isn’t that much mentioned about her aside from her bring photographed with Pharell or their son at events (which is unfortunate because I am curious to know about her).
She mixes casual street wear with different prints, handles menswear like a pro, mixes up really feminine clothing items with androgynous clothing. She loves plimsolls and sneakers but can certainly carry off a pretty pair of heels. She is no wallflower and stands on her own fashionable feet beside Pharell.
Her style sense may not be everyone’s cup of tea but I like it because I enjoy clashing clothing that should not mix. Plus, I am still a tomboy underneath all those dresses and skirts you see me in today.
I spied this look on Helen a while back and really wanted to give it a try.
Now I am sure some would think: this looks good on her because she is skinny and tall.
Well let’s see how this translates on my petite plus sized body shall we? 😉
Denim blouse – Cotton On
Bowler hat – Ebay
White heels – D&G
Turquoise bangle – The Island Shop at Tangs
So. Obviously there are certain things I could not do exactly as Helen did.
Like buttoning the blouse up right to the top. As a busty lass, that just does not bode well.
The hilarious bit for me when getting this photo shoot done was how it felt to be dressed in denim from top to toe on a particularly warm day. If you see me squinting my eyes or frowning It was thanks to the heat!!!
I am inspired by women from all around the world, of all sizes and styles. It is my belief that fashion should work for you and not the other way round. Less boundaries, more experimentation!
Who are you inspired by fashion-wise? Is there a certain look by a person that you’d like to try?
Ponder on that while I send you all my love! Have a good new week ahead.
