maya villiger: behind the scenes of turned out

Maya Villiger, ever the modest blogger turns the focus of her lens away from her herself and onto others as a street style photographer. But given her impeccable eye and tendency to wax lyrical about the joys of denim on denim (think in the vein of sturdy Menswear, not Alexander Wang) I've always suspected there was something a bit special about her own style. Luckily for us, Tommy Tom of Jak and Jil has done the groundwork for us and found out by choosing her for his latest 'Favourite Things' feature. The answer is a confident Yes, for Maya of Turnedout.tv has a grown up style as lovely and clean cut as the collages she carefully creates for her blog. In my eyes, she's a bit of a female counterpart to that Male style aesthetic I've talked about in the past; an appreciation for good quality items, well cut and simple. Converse and leather shoes replace desert boots, and a short bob and tweed blazer sustain the essence of that boyish look channelled by Annie Hall and loved by all (including Maya, naturally.)

someone did a post on her not too long ago and that is how I found her. She is awesome. She is inspirational for sure. I love masculine things to balance the girly things in my closet.

Maya is easily the chic-est person I know. She always looks so freakin' amazing, and she's sweet as pie too boot! I'm so glad Tommy did a post on her so now everyone has a chance to peek at her style :n D
