Presenting the 2014 Style Olympians

Psychedelic light shows, weather complaints, leggy Russians, ankles giving way to wipeouts – the Sochi Olympics and NYFW have a lot in common. While we’ve been poring over the shows nonstop, and obviously have all things shoe, bag, and runway on the brain here at Shop It To Me, we’ve also come down with a small bout of gold-medal-fever – so we’re calling some major style influencers to the podium and handing out mashup awards of our own. Presenting the 2014 Shop It To Me Fashion Olympians. Now if only Johnny Weir could present them.

AtlanticPacific
Cross Country – Ladies 10k – Atlantic Pacific
Getting that East-meets-West coast style compass aligned just right takes a skilled eye, and Blair Eadie gets it right every time. Her high-low, casual-structured looks work from the Haight to the Bowery – the epitome of a cross-country gold.

BleubirdVintage

Alpine Skiing – Women’s Super Combined Downhill – Bleubird Vintage
Her gorgeous blog is the ultimate in Pinterest candy. She cooks, she decorates, she raises four very photogenic children – all while looking totally stylish and adorable. We often wonder how James Kicinski McCoy does it all, and still find time to play the ukulele – and that’s why her, and her Nashville-based brood – win for Womens’ Super Combined Downhill.

CheapChicas

Freestyle Skiing – Ladies Moguls – Liliana Vazquez

Cheap Chicas founder Liliana Vazquez, the adorable, indomitable blogger-turned-tv-personality-turned-author-and-everything-in-between has enough on the docket for three normal humans. But, like any Olympian, she’s no normal human – she’s our favorite mini-mogul.

Chriselle

Bobsleigh – The Chriselle Factor

We’ve always loved Chriselle Lim’s sleek, sophisticated style, but her recently cropped ‘do took her look – and our hair envy – to the next level. Gold medal level. Whether perfectly coiffed in curls or sexily mussed, her blunt cut bob truly slays us.

Glamourai

Alpine Skiing – Women’s Super G - Glamourai
We know quite a few stylish ladies whose chosen monikers start with G, but Kelly Framel of The Glamourai takes this one for her sometimes bling-y, always statement-making style that, to us, borders on Super G-nius.

HappilyGrey

Speed Skating – Ladies 5000 – Happily Grey

Some people explode onto the fashion and blogging scene with a sprinter’s anaerobic ferocity, and that’s definitely the case for Mary Lawless Seng. Her earthy and accessible style raced her to the front of the effortlessly-chic, laid-back style pack in little over a year. If that’s not a gold in speed skating, we don’t know what is.

Leandra_opt

Ice Dancing – Man Repeller
Ice dancing is the Olympic equivalent of the drop-crotch pant – most guys take a glance, maybe stare for a second, and turn the other direction. That’s why we’re awarding the gold in the most man-repelling of sports to Leandra, the original ManRepeller. We can even see her in a (leopard print) skirted leotard.

MenswearDog_opt

Luge – Men’s Singles Run – Menswear Dog
He’s constantly stalking babes in SoHo, wearing flannel shackets and the finest selvedge denim. By some counts he’s in his late 20s, his prime. He’s reached the apex of singledom. Yes, we’re talking about Menswear Dog. The ultimate bachelor and ladies man wins for Luge Men’s Singles.

MichellePhan_opt

Curling – Women’s Gold Game – Michelle Phan
How to curl your hair with paper bags. How to get soft, flowing, Rapunzel-worthy curls. And, how to curl your lip at your ex-boyfriend. YouTube beauty vlogger Michelle Phan offers up so many kinds of expertise, that we wouldn’t take curling advice from anyone else – so, obviously, she wins curling gold.

R29_opt

FreeSTYLE Skiing – Aerials – Refinery29
Our go-to stop for off-the-cuff fashion and lifestyle recs, Refinery29 also happens to be the best on the interwebs for statement-making style inspiration – the kind we’d pay for, if we could afford a stylist. We’d give them a perfect score in freeSTYLE anything, but especially the aerials event – it takes a special kind of risk-taker to follow their high-flying style.

SeaofShoes (1)

Figure Skating – Pairs Free Skating – Sea of Shoes
Who better than Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes to win the Pairs event? Not only is the fiery redhead queen of pairs (of impeccable pumps), she’s also phenomenal at perfectly pair-ing her clutches with her clogs with her hats with her high-waist skirt suits. And she and her mom make a pretty great pair as well.
