GUEST POST: Style Icon: Paloma Faith

This week’s Style Icon is brought to us from Franca of Oranges and Apples. Franca’s blog is filled with colourful photos of her charming outfits and of her surrounding environment; she lives in Edinburgh. She describes her style as “dressing like a fruit bowl” and so it is, as colourful as any exotic fruit that would tempt even the most fussy fruit eater. Not only does Franca write her blog but she also handknits many a fabulous fashion goodie to sell in her Etsy shop. I am currently much taken with her Charleston knitted turban headbands. Enough of me, now, and over to Franca to introduce you to this week’s Style Icon:

I first became aware of Paloma Faith when she appeared on Never Mind the Buzzcocks in an outfit covered in multi-coloured pompons, and I’ve not been disappointed by her stylistic choices yet.

She’s a girl after my own heart: Her truly original style is one part colour, one part vintage, and one part oddball, and always amazing.

She can do (almost) straight vintage glamour:

But also rocks contemporary outfits:

She’s not afraid of colour:

Or outfits that are a bit mad:

And she has the most amazing hat collection:

What do you think of Franca’s choice of Style Icon?
