Ashley Shaw

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

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.

  • Wrecked Stellar

    Love her style! The thought of not wearing jeans for 8 months makes me want to try that for myself! I esp. love her soldier dress- too rad- and her change purse necklace! Urban is selling one but I love hers since it’s larger. The lace cami with the pants and clogs were perfection!

    Ashley is a real inspiration, her style seems so carefree yet carefully put together, she knows exactly what to pair with what. She really inspired me to get out of jeans and to be more feminine and also to venture to vintage shops. She is definitely my favourite on here along with Julia Gartland (whose opening message “do you love it” has been taken with me when shopping, to remind me not to buy for the sake of buying) The whole site is really inspiring to delve into other people’s interpretations of style and to see what they do is amazing, I love how it’s so accessible and you can learn so much from others!
