She channels Jane Birkin and Jerry Hall- during her 1970’s Yves Saint Laurent modeling spell- and adds the finer quirks of her fashion styling thanks to music icons like Joan Baez and Marianne Faithfull.
The Hipster Girl wants to be seen and heard, takes cure from those who break fashion rules to reinvent as her own, and sides with the couture outlaws all in the name of being hip. The hipster belongs in life’s fast lane- she’s a blogger’s delight and uses Instagram to post photos of herself to create her own brand of cool, saluting her fashion fins along the way. She is the ultimate consumer of all things popular, and swiftly moves from one season to the next, ready to put her own finishing touches on what she calls fashion.
