"I realized I don't really have a 'dress-down' look. I'm usually always dressed up. I have now gone eight months without wearing a pair of jeans." Ashley Shaw

Half Swedish and Italian, but from suburban Pennsylvania, Ashley's got a captivating "movie star" look with a total down home, earthy personality. Lipstick is her thing, and with lips to kill, the reds and purples give the care-free hippy in her an ultra sophisticated polish, alittle reminiscent of film siren Lauren Bacall. Ashley's a head-turning hybrid of flower child (she has the Monterey Pop Music Festival documentary on loop) and glamorous Russian princess, in one of her many knockout flea market picks; a loden cape, floral high-waisted pants, and very "Janis" clogs. Ashley turns lady-like to '70s funky with her leopard fake-fur coat and head scarf or pink fairy dress with feathered head piece. And her go to is the Salvation Army and there, rags become riches with impeccable finds such as the indigenous Peruvian poncho (for $1) to the quintessential '60s house dress, worn in her effortless synthesis of rock and roll meets glam way.
