Sister Style (New Feature!)



I'm happy to introduce a new feature that will pop up around here from time to time. It's called Sister Style! Didier and I have been sharing clothes since Jr. High. We regularly steal outfits from each other's closets. After Em stole this top from me we decided to share photos of both our outfits together… and so the Sister Style idea was born! Didier favors the 1970s bohemian stylings and I favor the more tailored looks from the 50s and 60s. We thought it would be fun to share how we would style one piece of clothing in different ways. In this first post, we both wore a crochet top (c/o )….


When I wore this crochet top I belted it and paired it with skinny pants and heels. I feel more comfortable in fitted clothing, so belts are usually a must for me. See more photos of . 


I love Didier's long necklace and denim shorts. She looks so cute and it's perfect for Spring. Her look is much more 70s and relaxed than mine. She's cool. See more photos of . 

Next time I'm stealing one of Didier's dresses! Xo, Helen 

  • I love the bond you share with Didier. You are both such lovely girls – and seem to really take care of one another. Thank you for sharing! xo

  • how fun! my sisters and i always shared clothes too but we all live in different states now unfortunately. but i love this feature–can’t wait to see more! 🙂

  • How clever; Two people, two styles, one textile! PS I love your yellow shoes!

  • Oh this is nice! My best friend and I share a lot of clothes too, we only recently discovered we wear the same size. I even wore her yellow skinny jeans before she did! 😀

    Love the post! Seeing one piece different ways is always helpful.

  • Love this idea! Only people I could borrow clothes from would have been my brothers….all soccer jerseys and t-shirts.

  • What a cute and clever feature! Me and my sister love wearing and sharing clothes. Now that we live across the world from each other (literally) it isn’t possible, but I DID find a few of my things in her closet during my last visit 😉

  • Love this feature! Such a great idea. You both look gorgeous and I love how differently you styled it!

    I look forward to more of these!

  • I love this idea! Great new feature. Its fun to see how two different people style the same thing 🙂

  • You gals both look lovely! It’s always great to see the same piece of clothing styled in different ways.

  • I love this! It’s such a cute feature! My sister and I steal clothes from each other on a regular basis. I love bohemian style.

  • I like both outfits!
    This is an amazing idea!
    I love your yellow heels and Didier’s necklace!

  • My sisters and I usually swap our clothes, but now, it’s un-doable since i live far away from them..

    Love your new feature 🙂


  • This is such a brilliant idea, I can’t wait to see more of these. Nice one girls!


  • Aw this is a sweet post! I love to see the bond you two share! My sister is 10 years younger than I am but, we share clothes too. It’s way fun, she’s very preppy and I’m more hippie so it’s always fun to see how she will style something that we share!

  • You both are just gorgeous and i love the styling of both! Looking forward to more of this feature! Have a lovely day!

  • It’s a great idea, you two are so beautiful and lovely. 🙂

  • oh i love this! my style is much more like Didier’s, but I love seeing the comparison. great idea girls! xo.

  • i LOVE this idea for a feature!

    Sister’s are the best 🙂 my sister and I just got amazing matching tattoos.. and we always share clothes. A definite bonus!


  • great idea. I love the fact you share clothes and that your personalities shine through with your choices.

    My sister has always hated my clothes so we’ve never shared, I’m not really sure why she hates them though, I love my clothes lol

  • The two of you have the same fashion tastes like me and my elder sister! She prefers fitting clothes while i’m more of the bohemian, relaxing type 😉

  • Eek! Sounds just like my sisters and I. SO looking forward to these features!

  • that crocheted top is gorgeous!! sad they don’t have my size left. so fun to see the different ways you & your sister style it. i always wished my sister & i could share clothes but alas we are very different sizes (i.e. she has a chest &i don’t)

  • I love this new feature! Makes me wish I had a sister to play dress up. haha Cute!

  • Your relationship with your sister is precious! I love to see it popping up in your blog so often.

  • Hi Julie, the wedges are from ModCloth (they’re Jeffrey Campbell).

    Thanks for all the kind comments! Helen

  • so sweet! I have a twin sister, who even at the ripe old age of 25 I still love to share clothes with. I think I’m going to enjoy this feature!

  • Sweet idea! You are so lucky to be so close. I miss my sister’s closet:)

  • I’m sure that you didn’t mean to, but this series looks like almost an exact replica of Liz’s sister style series that she started in January.

    just a heads up…

  • Susan,
    Thanks. I actually had never seen that blog/feature before. I even googled “sister style” to try to make sure it wasn’t used. That said, it’s a good idea and I’m not surprised that we didn’t think of it first. I think it’s pretty clear that we’re doing something different (wearing the same item of clothing in different ways) and it’s a coincidence that we both thought of the same name! :))

  • What a fab idea – now I get to see both you beauties style gorgeous pieces in two delightful ways – WIN WIN

  • I’m so exicted about this feature because my sister and I are best buds, and this gives me an excuse to wear her things! Tee hee! LOVE LOVE!

  • this is an absolutely fantastic idea for a post – a cross between online sartorialist/what she wore and the real simple mag style comparison of the same style of clothing on young vs. old.

    looking forward to more!

  • I love love love this new feature! I am the oldest of three girls, and my sisters and I always steal each others’ clothes. I’m excited to see more of how you and Didier interpret a piece differently 🙂

  • my sister and i have also done this in the past on our blog! it’s tons of fun (except that she usually looks way cuter than me!) you both look great. i like both of the stylings!

  • I LOVE your style and LOVE your shop!

    It is a pity that Im from Spain:(

    follow you!

    I invite you to visit my blog:)

    (excuse my english, I use translator)

  • This is a really cool idea! I love how you show that different looks can be made with the same piece of clothing. Very inspiring!

  • I’m a happy blog love student and often reference the the e-course if I’m stumped on what to write, have a random question or need a little inspiration. Such amazing stuff by Helen and her gal pals 🙂
