I Can’t Get Enough Of…..

The girls and I don't have a TV, but one of our favorite guilty pleasures is to watch re-runs of Top Design on Itunes.  We love Kelly Wearstler's wacky, over the top outfits.  I've been a fan of Kelly's for years.  All of my Kelly books are dog-eared and I love her boutique in Bergdorf.  There is no doubt that she is a great talent.  Eccentricity is obviously in her genes, therefore,  I cannot understand why she gets so much grief for her wardrobe on Top Design.  I think she's fabulous!!  

Love the leg-o'mutton sleeves!  My dream date is to go vintage shopping with Kelly in Palm Beach…

Why does stepping outside the range of norm put people in such a state?  Must we all look the same?  Someone described her as "crazy Aunt Millie with sixteen cats."  Indeed….

She obviously doesn't take herself too seriously, and in our world of self-obsessed starlets, I find her refreshing and inspiring!

This is beautiful!

Love the necktie!!

Wish I could find more of her hat photos on line…

Kelly on her outfits:  "Fuck it, I'm just going to wear them."  Go Kelly, I salute you!!

    She is such a beauty and my husband works himself up into a lather trying to understand why she would put on such eccentric pieces. One look I wasn’t digging was the way out crimped hair.

    Thats funny cause one of the few times I actually watched top design all I really noticed was her incredible wardrobe 🙂
    I remember she was wearing a puffy pink dress, grey legwarmers and heels, pretty amazing!
    she actually even reminds me of jane’s carefree style

    before there was top design, i discovered her through one of my mom’s architecture/interior design magazines laying around on the breakfast table.
    i ripped out the page of her, but dont tell my mom!
    and yes, we do have great vintage and antiques in palm beach. im always driving up and down antique row.

    Seeing Wearstler in these photos (I don’t have a TV either) makes me like her. Previously I’d seen her only in the pages of Vogue where she was obviously styled by someone more conservative! I heart eccentricity.

    I blogged a little about Kelly’s style in October http://www.style-television.com/2008/10/28/style-we-love-top-designs-kelly-wearstler/
    She’s a little kooky, but ridiculously fun to watch. She’s the best part of the show, imho!

    Oh, she has amazing style! The outfit with the white dress is indeed very beautiful!
    I’ve a similar, if not the same, dress as the navy-one she’s wearing. Mine’s by Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, and it’s little hearts that make the whole dress. So amazingly cute!
