Women Crush Wednesday : HOW to DRESS LIKE STEVIE NICKS

I am an early 80s baby who grew up on the sounds of classic rock, country and oldies music. Family nights consisted of us huddled around the living room listening and dancing to the sounds of Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Lynyrd Skynyrd and of course Fleetwood Mac. stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

Back then our listening formats consisted of tapes and vinyl. Cd’s weren’t really popular yet, so it wasn’t as easy to skip ahead to your favorite song without possibly damaging the tape, but I wanted to listen to Rhiannon on repeat. I choreographed roller skating routines to it on our front driveway. My sister and I would choreograph dance routines to the rest of the album. I also spent countless hours fawning over the  cover of Stevie Nick’s Bella Donna record… daydreaming about her ethereal white dress and beautiful boots in all of their crushed velvet glory. stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

 We were big fans of Stevie in our house…so much so that my youngest sister was named after her. Her birth name is Stephanie, but from day one, she was Stevie to all of us. ( LUCKY!!!) stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

Music ran through our veins. My parents bought me my first guitar when I was 3, but I didn’t really pick it up til about the 7th grade when my father taught me a few chords and I picked up the rest. I jammed out to Skynyrd’s Tuesday’s Gone and Tom Petty’s Free Fallin’ like there was no tomorrow. I began to write my own songs by the age of 16 and starting performing them at my school’s concerts in high school. Throughout college, I wrote a lot more and performed and competed in open mic nights for fun. I never really took it seriously though. I did it as a creative outlet for fun and had an okay voice, but I always dreamed of having something more unique like Stevie. Although I could never sing like Stevie, I knew that she still would inspire my sense of style.stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

Stevie Nicks is the epitome of bonafide bohemian style. From fringe, flared jeans, flowy chiffon dresses, bell sleeves and velvet…Stevie donned it all and still does to this day. stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

My boho style has been around since I was a kid. You can see me in the picture below sporting one of my most favorite outfits of my youth. I adored those floral bell sleeves and flares. I felt so chic in  a sea of dresses that Easter. (PS. Say hi to my younger siblings, Peter and there she is…Stevie!) 

To be honest, I never really felt comfortable in anything too form fitting. I have always been drawn to more romantic trends such as bell sleeves, chiffon dresses and folky printed tops. I live for long floaty maxi dresses that whip behind me as I walk on a breezy day. It makes me feel like a model with every step I take.stevie nicks fashionPhoto: Getty Images

Stevie Nicks is the queen of ethereal, bohemian witchy trends. She is a true gypsy woman.  Surprisingly enough, if you were to pick anything out of her closet full of lace, velvet and flowy and gauzy fabrics, you would be right on trend today. With festival season coming soon, let me share some items that can make you feel like your very own Gold Dust Woman.
