Dear Wonderful Reader,
I’m obsessed with Carey Mulligan style. This young starlet may let her style go when she’s running errands or getting a cup of coffee, but I think it’s only out of laziness and carelessness. But when she’s is dressing up for events, she dresses like a fashion goddess!! Mulligan’s style is minimal, elegant, and feminine. Did I mention I’m totally in love with her style?!
I divided her style into four different categories, since she likes to switch it up sometimes. I especially love how she just ditches jewelry!
*Even though diamonds are a girl’s best friend and I owe many jewelry pieces and I love them and I’m always tempted to buy more, when it comes to putting on outfits, I feel like the less jewelry the better: minimal to no jewelry make the woman look more effortless, clean (cut), sleek, and sexy because it focuses the attention on her skin and silhouette and it implies that she doesn’t need the aid of a bling to be noticed (was that the longest sentence ever?!). Personally and most importantly, minimal jewelry make me feel more comfortable and liberated. Though, I’m not swearing off buying jewelry or anything!
My favorite category<3
A. Sleek, Modern, Minimal, & Sexy
C. Elegant, Vintage, & Old-lady Like (I mean that in a positive way)
P.S. I owe lots of old-lady pieces and I love them! They’re just so elegant!
D. Quirky & Fun

I like her.
I like her approachable good looks and the fact she’s usually in a dress.
I don’t know anything about fashion…I just know that dresses are distinctly feminine, kind of like how flower petals are distinctly flower-ish. We don’t know why they go so well together, flowers and their petals, pretty girls and their pretty dresses, but — there’s no need to question it.
I also like that she takes on roles where she’s often very intelligent, independent, but…still in need of protecting.
Like in Drive or An Education.
I’d totally stomp a man’s head apart for her, is what I think I’m trying to say. 😉
I am glad you like her fashion sense even though you don’t really care about it! She is a beauty and I don’t blame you and I really liked her in An Education =]1
Sally Sparrow is always in for the win. Carey looks absolutely stunning.
I haven’t seen her in that character yet, but I am sure its worth watching. Thank you =]
I can’t agree anymore. She really is timeless, and so elegant. She’s up there as one of my top style icons.
I’m glad we feel the same way 😉
