♥ the thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. you just take it.

so, earlier in the year when i met diane von furstenberg,
(i still pinch myself when i begin sentences with that statement!)
she said something quite profound that i have been reflecting on
and wanted to share with you. she said,

"to you, the girl across the room may appear to have it all together-
but from her point of view, you are the girl across the room,
and you appear to have it all together too."

such a simple notion- and yet when she said it, i realized
i had never thought that way before- and it was quite refreshing.

i recently found a blog based upon a similar notion
that i needed to share it with you as well:

"ever find yourself with an overwhelming sense of admiration
for another girl? where you want to be her AND be friends with her?
and it teeters on the line of jealousy/envy?
sounds like you've got a girl crush.

this is a place dedicated to those women with impeccable style,
talemt and wit. we'll be posting links about these awesome gals,
photos & art by talented females, and music by rad girl bands/artists.
not to get all spice girls up in here, but we feel empowered by these womenm
and hope you will too."

got a girl crush is an inspirational blog
dedicated to some fantastic ladies:

dvf, duh.

patti smith, double duh!

frida kahlo

iris apfel.

who is your girl crush??

6 ♥ love notes.:

  1. beautiful post! I have a serious girl crush on Kate Bosworth - specifically her style...however, Patti Smith falls not too far behind!

  2. I have to say that I just adore Olivia Palermo's style!

  3. i love tavi and iris apfel for their style

  4. this is so enlightening! i ALWAYS find myself looking at other women and thinking they have the perfect style and exude such confidence and i become so envious. i'd never thought that maybe someone was looking at me and thinking the exact same thing (i still find it hard to believe), but of course it's true. i don't think most girls think of themselves as the one being looked at with envy, but rather being looked at and judged. this is so eye-opening. thanks so much for sharing this, sami! and i'll have to check out that blog :)

  5. I love this post...especially because you featuring Ms. Apfel who I adore! I love Diana Vreeland, Kelly Wearstler, and Anna dello Russo!!!!!!

  6. amazing! I have too many girl crushes to name as they all embody different things I aspire to or relate with!


♥ tell me how you really feel!
