Style Icon Stevie Nicks

“I’ll be very, very sexy under 18 pounds of chiffon and lace and velvet,” Ms. Nicks promised herself as a teenager. “And nobody will know who I really am.”

Today is the husky voiced singers birthday and I wanted to honor her amazing sense of style. I have always had a strong regard for Stevie Nicks since I was a child. My parents listened to Fleetwood Mac religiously on long car rides. I could easily sing all their songs word for word.

I also have a fondness for her because she reminds me so much of my sister Brianna. My mom wanted to name her Rhianna after she heard the song Rhiannon...my father wouldn't let that fly. But she also reminds me of Nicks looks wise. She could have been Stevie's lost love child.

see what I mean?

I've always loved Stevie's long blond hair, big doe eyes and cupid lips making her still look like an innocent child at 63 years old. I also have loved her ethereal, gypsy, pagan, hippie style.  Below are some of my favorite looks of hers.

Back to the gypsy...

Nunettes...Eye Candy

Nunettes are not so much functional as they are fun. Celebs such as 50 Cent, Lady Gaga, and P.Diddy have rocked these lenses. They are made in Montreal and run for roughly $40. Here are some of the kooky designs!

Fashion Inspiration :"Edith Bouvier Beale, "Little Edie "

Grey Gardens is a documentary released in 1975, the cousin's of Jackie Kennedy had been living in Grey Gardens, a dilapidated estate in East Hampton NY. The mother and daughter were isolated and practically shut in's for almost 25 years. They also were eccentrics to say the least but in a very endearing way.

 Grey Gardens has always been a favorite movie fo mine and I wanted to make a tribute to Little Edie's style. Edith Beale suffered from alopecia and always wore a scarf to cover her head which became her signature look. Below are some looks that were directly inspired by Edie.

All that glitters...Judith Leiber clutches

I LOVE this bag! It was a special addition made by Judith Leiber and it would have only put you out oh....$4,295

Fell in love with it when Charlotte's daughter is seen with one in the Sex and teh City movie (lets face it, the big reason we watch the show is for the fashion) 

I became a big fan of Judith Leiber bags through SATC.

Carries gift from Big. 

She hated it, but I am a huge fan.

Here are some more favorites of mine from Judith Leiber
