Drake General Store Style Icon: Jemima Kirke
Jemima Kirke, who plays Jessa in HBO’s Girls, is often referred to as a scene stealer on the show for her crude wit, eccentric charm and effortless beauty. An artist first, Jemima landed the role on Girls after being long-time friends with the show’s creator Lena Dunham, and previously starring in Dunham’s debut film Tiny Furniture. Jessa’s personal style on the show doesn’t derive too far from Jemima’s own, she has said “I think it’s like a caricature of how I dress in real life… or it might be the way Lena used to look at the way I dressed and how she pictured styling my outfit in her head the next day”. An expressionist painter who has had shows in New York, London and Miami, Jemima’s look is a creative manifestation of her own. She has a boho vibe with her ultra-long tresses worn loose and flowing sheer dresses to match, crushed velvet, vintage fur and ornate jewelry.
 
It could easily be said that Jemima Kirke was destined to be stylish. Likely influenced by her own parents, her father was a drummer for the band Bad Company and her mother owns a shop in New York called Geminola. The boutique carries vintage clothing and creates handmade designs using vintage fabrics, and was known for donating many pieces to Sex and the City. As a teenager Jemima was friends with designer Zac Posen, who would make dresses for her and other girls at their high school, but she would still rather wear a t-shirt or vintage than anything high-end couture (with maybe the exception of Chanel creepers she called “beautiful and awesome”). The mother of two has a very nonchalant attitude towards getting dressed, calling style an easy thing that people make difficult. She has said “I don’t wear loud things. I just wear what looks nice. I’m not wearing mom jeans, though”. Jemima does what feels right, whether that is hugging onto Jay-Z during a performance or wearing a Tiki-inspired slip. While we are in love with her exotic-feel and bohemian aura, we are sure with her confidence, face of Brigitte Bardot and ass like Rihanna, even Jemima would make mom jeans look cool.

Drake General Store Style Icon: Kim Gordon
Since the birth of the rock band Sonic Youth in New York’s art scene during the 1980s, front woman Kim Gordon has effortlessly become a female grunge style icon. Kim’s style challenges both the traditional ideas of what someone who plays in a rock band should dress like, and breaks down the wall that exists between masculine and feminine fashion. From flowing bohemian dresses to contrast her hard music, to masculine tailoring to contrast her peroxide blonde hair, Kim’s style is unapologetic and entirely her own. With fifteen albums under her belt, a handful of music videos directed, dozens of paintings exhibited + having raised a daughter (adorably named Coco), there’s a lot more to admire about her than just the frock on her back.

Kim has even designed a handful of her own clothing lines, X-Girl in the 1990s, Surface to Air in 2008 and Mirror/Dash, a collaboration with Urban Outfitters “there’s a need for clothes for cool moms.”. A classic icon of female empowerment, she still has relevance today - she’ll be in the upcoming season 3 premiere of HBO’s Girls. Kim’s one of our idols we won’t be killing.

We Heart Tune Tuesday!

Sure, this music video for Bleached looks like it was shot almost totally using an iPhone app, but that doesn’t stop us from finding it oh-so charming. With its lighthearted chords and south western setting, the garage rock song and video certainly lighten our winter-heavy hearts.

We really love dressing up… especially when it comes to our nails. These amazing nail options are courtesy of Lynn’s Boutique. To enhance our chilly Thursday, we’re definitely trying at least one of these sets.
