I've been addicted to gray cardigans since high school

Many moons ago when I worked at American Apparel, I got my hands on the issue of Self Service devoted almost entirely to Chloë. It is, in a word, EPIC, and it's helped drag me kicking and screaming out of many a dark, muddy style rut.

If forced to choose a favorite editorial, I would probably go with this one. Even now, a few years later, I find the shapes and colors incredibly inspiring. And the hair! I wish I had the wherewithal to curl and clip mine up like this every day.

Every outfit is so fuckibg GOOD. And extremely current. Did she style this herself? I know of this issue of Self Service, but sadly I do not own this one.

You know something sad? I don't even OWN one single grey cardigan. And it breaks my heart...every time I want to wear a grey cardigan. Which is a lot because hello, they go with everything!

Sarah, the styling is by Camille Bidault-Waddington, about whom I know little except she's a cool French stylist who hangs out with Olivier Zahm a lot. Gots to educate myself.

Hello, darling said...

Curling and clipping? oh hooo no. Take a page from my book, the only (surprisingly) awesome style thing I ever did-- BODY WAVE
