INSPIRATION FOUND: LANA DEL REY


Lana Del Rey (née Lizzie Grant) has been getting quite a bit of attention lately in the blog-o-sphere, both for her looks and her for music. She’s the newly proposed ‘it’ girl who music critics love to hate and who fashionable females die to emulate. Del Rey’s throaty voice is unmistakable, especially when paired with downright dirty, Lolita-esque lyrics that add all the more to the mystery behind this woman. After just one listen to Lana’s new single, Video Games, I was instantly hooked—and, admittedly, nearly moved to tears. It’s one of those songs that shakes you to the soul, with, in my opinion, nearly perfect lyrics and musical arrangement to boot.


But whether her melodies strike a proverbial chord with you or not, Miss Del Rey’s style is undeniably on-point and H.O.T. The self-proclaimed “gangster Nancy Sinatra” exudes the perfect mix of 50s lounge singer meets 70s flower child, with a pinch of punk thrown in for good measure. That said, most of her wardrobe consists of vintage, or vintage-inspired pieces, providing ample opportunity to experiment and create looks that are one-of-a-kind and all your own.


For true LDR style, just remember to stick with power period pieces as your starting point– simple shifts, cut-off shorts, tour tees and floral accessories galore. Now, let’s get you out of those old clothes, kitten, and see you slipping into something more comfortable…
