Mandy. Wins. For. My. Favorite. Personal. Style. Hands. Down.
Bravo to Mandy Shadforth. She currently lives in Australia and works as an artist, blogger, and a freelance stylist. She nails it every time with her effortless ensembles. I am just now discovering her blog and I have no idea why. I literally stopped everything else I was doing and scrolled through every single one of her posts (all two years worth of her archives). I personally LOVE finding a blogger with sick personal style that posts things that I have yet to discover. I adore finding a blogger that introduces me to new designers and aspects of the fashion industry that inspire me. Mandy has most certainly done that so I just had to do a spotlight on this gorgeous talented girl! I am so thrilled to have discovered Oracle Fox!
target="_blank"Oracle Fox is so original, innovative, and versatile. Mandy covers so many different areas of the industry. I love how all across the board she is. One day she'll post an editorial shoot, an outfit post, a travel post, then illustrations from artists she likes. You can tell she posts whatever has moved her that day. It is not too planned or a premeditated wannabe online webazine. Oracle Fox because it's blowing up! Happy Thursday, darlings! My weekend starts... NOW!
Those rings, the Pamela Love Talon cuff, the hair, that jacket!!!!! I love this shot!!!
My favorite shot of Mandy. The clouds kill me. This literally looks like it was ripped out of i-D magazine.
Mandy's latest outfit post. Isn't she adorable?
The print of this blouse just makes the sunlight peeking through look even more gorgeous. It 's super chic how her hat is pulled all the way down too. Could you die over her rings? They are awesome.
Ha! Goofy in a laundry mat. I adore that she doesn't take herself too seriously when getting shot in her ensembles. It is so much more fun to be silly! The sickest photos usually come out like that anyway. ;)
Those shorts are to die for. That jacket with the fringe is absolutely fantastic and could go with literally anything and make it look edge-y as hell. Oh, and are those bubbles she is holding? Love this concept for a shoot.
In love with her clutch here. Sick sick sick. I want it. Oh and can we please discuss her head piece, the cut outs in her shirt, and that massive bracelet? This look is so gypsy chic. She is so versatile!
The sun, her hair, the bike, and the basket. I love this shot so much. Omg, as a photographer... I die for this.
Awesome stack of bracelets. You can tell she didn't just throw all of those on her arm one day and she isn't wearing them in a stack because it's trendy. They have clearly been there a while and mean something to her. I love that.
Photo shoot time.
A shot of what Mandy packed on her recent trip to Bali to surf with her girlfriends. Awesome life, right? Love this. That Corona bag is fab.
She just posted the new ad pics for Pamela Love with model, Charlotte Free. Obsessed. I have been in love with her forever. She is stunning. I did a huge post on Charlotte on my old blog a while back. Adore her and those cuffs are making me nauseous. I need them now.
This photo is unreal. I love that little pink braid peeking out.
Mandy also threw some of Free People's photos up on her blog from their June 2011 looks. Who knew Free People could look so bohemian chic right? Go to her blog to see the rest. All the looks are sick. I would have never thought to go check Free People out?? Amazing. I need to add those pants to my leather collection asap.
Mandy recently did a huge post on one of her favorite artist/designer, Abbey Watkins. I had never seen this illustrator before. I am in love with fashion illustrators because I envy that talent so much! Isn't this piece unbelievable? I wish I could draw. I had to share the love on this amazing artist and pay it forward.
