Speaking of style icons…The Sartorialist recently hosted a dinner in Florence and captured the this gathering of exquisite style, and all its ambiance, in a short film. It makes me all the more excited to be heading off to Tuscany in just a few weeks!! Watch and enjoy ; )

style icon : françoise hardy

“I am not comfortable with my professional life really, so the word ‘icon’- it’s as though you were talking about someone else, it’s not me really…I feel happy when I’m on my bed, in my room with a good book.” Françoise Hardy

style icon: jane birkin

Forever a fashion icon; inspiring the much loved Birkin bag { by sitting next to chief exec. of Hermès, Jean-Louis Dumas, on a flight from Paris to London } and even thought of as the queen of denimAmanda Brooks of Vogue writes:

She’s never worn designer jeans or jeans with elaborately branded embroidery
on the back pocket. She just wears well-loved, well-worn jeans. In the seventies, she seemed to wear them nearly ever day—some days with a T-shirt and red
sandals, other days with a stripy sweater and ballet flats or with a tank top
and wedge-heeled espadrilles. It also appears that Birkin has never been one
to own multiple pairs; in most pictures of her, if you look closely, she’s wearing the
same ones. Even today, she still looks more at home in jeans than almost anyone
else I can think of. She inhabits them so effortlessly. Vogue.com

There’s some inspiration for when the only thing you feel like throwing on is a pair of jeans + a tee ; )
