To find my fashion icon, I went online. The first advice I saw was that you should find a celebrity that looks like you. This didn't sound right; what if the person shaped like you dresses horribly? Jessie didn't think it was a good idea either. I asked her and got a "no, no, no! not someone who looks like you, but someone whose fashion sense you admire" - makes much more sense.
After about an hour of looking through fashion pages, I hadn't gotten any further so I took a quiz (of course) to at least label my style type - The Chic Fashionista: Fashion Style Quiz. According to the quiz, I have an eclectic style - a little bit of everything, but not necessarily bohemian. Pretty much a style that can't be categorized. The quiz gave a list of celebrities with eclectic style who dress nothing like each other. I didn't recognize any of them or feel particularly drawn to their fashion sense. Still no help.
I finally gave up and logged in to Pinterest. I figure if I'm not any closer to finding an icon, then I can at least catalog some great looks. I might also end up repeating a specific person on my board - that would be a big clue as to whom I admire, I guess.
Have you been on Pinterest, yet? I'm addicted.
So... in conclusion, I'm not any closer to choosing a specific fashion icon. I am, however, enjoying looking at pretty clothes and letting them speak for themselves.
The search continues! You can check out my board to see what else I've added. I'll keep you posted.
