I have to tell you how awesome Gracey at Fashion for Giants is: she’s young, she’s beautiful, she’s tall, and she’s got this amazing individual style that reminds me getting dressed for the office can be fun.
Plus, Gracey is magic.
Seriously? Seriously. Because when she shares a picture of what she wears to the office, what you might not know if you’re new to her blog, is that she rides her bike to and from work. Every day. Rain or shine.
Gracey is funny, a huge fan of vintage clothes and the 80s, and extraordinarily gifted at creating beautiful outfits that don’t cost a fortune. I find her style to be uniquely individual but at the same time accessible to real working women, especially those who need to stretch a limited clothing budget. She’s a creative re-mixer of both classic and funky separates; a smart shopper when it comes to more expensive investment purchases, like the perfect pair of boots; and a terrific role model for anyone who likes to thrift pre-owned clothes, or wants to start.
Did I say she’s magic? She has to be. She sent me two dresses that fit perfectly, and she’s never met me. Not only do the dresses fit perfectly, but they also fit my style perfectly. It was so odd that I opened her package at the end of a day, after looking at my outfit pictures (which I decided not to share), and thought, “That’s a pretty dress, but it’s not really right for me.” And that Gracey sent me two dresses absolutely right for me.
Which gives me the courage to find a new home for the dress that isn’t really right for me.
That’s Gracey: magic and gorgeous style you can use, every day. Rain or shine.
