I realized today that I have never done a tribute post of any kind to one of my favourite women of all-time. This little lady is not only a bright ray of sunshine, she's also got a unique (although often criticized) style that's all her own. She's had more hair colours and styles over the years than we can count. She has re-invented herself and her look time and time again. Whether she's going for casual cool in vintage tees and Ugg boots, in bare feet with daisies in her hair or rocking high-octane glamour, Drew Barrymore's quirky style is always infused with that vibrant and fun-loving spark that has made her Hollywood's sweetheart. Casual, cool, sexy, glam and let's be honest, at times down right awful, Drew wears whatever she wants and I have a great respect for her because of it. My favourite thing about Drew is that she dares to be herself in an industry that seems to be trying so hard, every single day, to rip young girls' self esteem to shreds and turn them into carbon copies of someone else. She marches to the beat of her own drum and wears whatever she feels comfortable in. For somebody who has literally grown up in the business, Drew seems amazingly well adjusted, down to earth and just so...real. Her cute, warm and fuzzy films grace my collection of movies that I will watch over and over again. Her happy go lucky nature is infectious. Miss Barrymore's positive approach to life inspires me. I heart Drew. Here's a little look-see at Drew's ever changing style through the years.
“I’m such a workaholic and so on fire all the time, it bewilders the s--- out of me…If you’re interested in something, you have to act on it. When you get ideas, don’t just let them be fleeting thoughts that flow into the universe, so that later you look back and think, ‘God, I wish I had done something about that.’ Just go for it and never be afraid.”
