Say hello to another new series! Every Wednesday we will post about our badass girl crushes for that week.
Let’s do this thing.
Today we have a singer/songwriter, a photographer, a blogger, a buyer, and an actress.
First up: Ida Maria.
She’s a Norwegian rock musician. Does that tell you enough?
She kind of appeared out of nowhere. She has an awesome batch of pop songs and has this punk-ish energy and bluesy vocals. The coolest.
She started working with other local musicians in Bergen at the ripe age of 16 before moving to Sweden and finding some ballin’ musicians in Stockholm. She played at Swedish rock clubs until she released her first album, Fortress Round my Heart, in 2008.
In my opinion, Katla is so much better. You just want to jam out and scream the lyrics to her songs alone in your car. Or on a girls night riding down the highway. It’s angsty and many tracks are about people being shitty or guys treatin’ you wrong.
Next is the beautiful, charming InstaQueen lovin’ an InstaKing: Amanda Jasnowski.
She’s a 21 year old artist/photographer living in Brooklyn, NY. But she grew up in Spain. So.
Her photography is a mixture of film and digital. It’s captivating, moving, and definitely thought-provoking.
Her ability to capture perfect moments is astounding. She catches light in this mysterious, melancholy way unlike many photographers I’ve seen.
And the projects she works on with her boy are really interesting.
This is her boy: Jimmy Marble. Aka: InstaKing. Another awesome photographer. In my opinion, they’re a powercouple. Adorable, artsy, quirky and eclectic. They both love traveling and photography. I ship them 38223.4 percent.
Check her out on Instagram so you can fangirl like I do: @hokaytokay
Don’t worry, she won’t bite…or will she? The new NastyGal blogger: Steaktooth.
Rachael Finley. Cool girl all around. Spends her free time making lists and drinking wine. Fan of reptiles. The girl that writes honestly and takes kodaks and has friends with long hair that go to bike shows.
She listens to rap music and grows cacti.
And her nickname is Steak. So.
That’s her iguana. On her head. Are you crushin’ hard yet?
Check out her blog. She’s hilaaaaaarious.
Probably my favorite girl crush and spirit animal
for the past month ever: Kate Foley.
She mixes high fashion with vintage pieces and target finds. She has the raddest house and cutest cat. She loves platforms + socks. She’s fucking British.
Stop being awesome. I hate you.
Kidding. Please be my best friend.
She’s also a buyer for Opening Ceremony. You know, no big deal.
Put your hands together for the all time girl crush of any Revival fan:
Molly Ringwald in Pretty in Pink.
When the movie was released, every cool girl want to be Andie Walsh. Her story is fantastic. It’s timeless. Working-class girl falls for the preppy boy in school and hitches him. Then there is the typical guy best friend who (in this case) openly and obviously loves her. It’s perfect and basically every girl’s high school dream experience.
She works for a really cool record store, is friends with a super quirky older woman with fantastic fashion sense, makes her own dress and goes to prom by herself because of her awesome girlpower and ability to stand up for herself (take notes, ladies), and snags the love of her teenage life in the end. Tell me you don’t have a major girl crush.
Personal rant: I know that it’s controversial and it was essential to the story and their friendship…but damnit I wanted Duckie and Andie to get together. So much chemistry and so adorable and their styles explode together. Ugh.
I’m just a little bitter.
Her style, though. Woah. It’s creative, original, and totally 80s (which I can’t get enough of).
And her best friend is a well-dressed, hilarious dude. So.
Who are your girl crushes? Comment and they might get featured next Wednesday. We want to know!
