You know how there are some people you come across in life that always seem like they are having the best time? Aleks Woroniecka is one of those people. She is a friend of a friend, and maybe it’s because I really only see her at parties that she is always so cheerful and enthusiastic, but I suspect she’s like this all the time. She’s smiling, she’s affectionate, and she’s usually the first to dance and the last to go home. I always look forward to seeing Aleks because her happiness is contagious.
However, the reason I am telling you about her here is because of her classic, yet quintessentially French style. Everything she wears is chic but not fussy; stylish but not trendy; precise without trying too hard. And that short blonde bob makes me so jealous – I tried to wear my hair that length recently, and it just looked awful on me (my hair is too bushy to be that short and all one length). What you can’t see in these black and white shots is Aleks’s signature red nails. By now you must now how much I love red nails. In her case, they are the perfect bit of femininity in contrast to her otherwise tomboy look.
|Can you see her skinny suspenders? Those little details are what makes her style unique. And if you love her silk panama-inspired blouse, it’s from Olatz in NYC (also available at Barneys.com).|
I love the quirky, surrealist hand-holding belt. It’s unusual accessories such as this that make thrift store combing often worth the effort.
