I got a lot of (non-evidenced by the blog) love for this featured blogger, and so today I thought I’d showcase someone similar. In fact, I think I *might* like today’s girl a little bit better. Lucy Laucht is a style blogger who lives in New York, and like many fashion bloggers, she does outfits of the days (which hereafter will be referred to as OOTD). I’m having a hard time trying to define her style because she’ll go preppy in stripes/red crops/a navy blazer but can channel a Jessica Alba bohemian vibe just as well.
Besides enjoying her outfit inspiration, I like her because she’s totally accessible. Even though her job in NYC sounds super-glam (She designs creative campaigns for fashion brands. Sounds terrible, I know), she talks about surviving on her small salary, about how she and her boyfriend decorated their Brooklyn apartment piece-by-piece with all flea market finds, and about a struggle through hell and high water for a thrift store Missoni dress. In one of her posts, Lucy writes, “talking with a friend yesterday, we concluded our favorite style blogs are the attainable ones; sites where appeal lies in the fact we can relate to the content.” Well Lucy, you’ve nailed why I like you!
The dress in the picture above was $7. I know this because Lucy “suffer[s] from some kind of tourettes which inclines [her] to shout “$10 Flea markets!” or “$15 Vinnies!” every time someone admires a piece of [her] clothing.” She says she knows she probably shouldn’t brag about the deals she scores but just can’t help herself. I struggle with that too– does saying I got a top on the clearance rack for $3.99 make me a) annoying, b) down to earth, or c) just blabbery?
Anyway, the girl is just so cute, and I imagine her (for no reason at all) talking with an accent like Heidi Klum’s. Can’t you see(/hear) it?
