~ The Women We Wish to Be ~





I maybe starting something here, but I wonder, if like me, sometimes you wish you could be like another woman. Maybe it is someone you saw in the street, or someone famous, or even someone surreal. It might be you wished you had their dress sense or style. Well, I am guilty of this at times. Here are some photo's of women I have seen that make me wonder for a little while.........

  1. All of these lovely ladies have such great style and grace - something I think many of us aspire to! : )

  4. Hi Simone -
    Yes, I love to see women with real honest to goodness personal style. I have taken notice since I was a kid of that woman who you see every once and awhile that makes you take a second look and want to know more about her. Audrey is my favorite.

  6. I know the feeling...I really do...how do others manage? How do they make such a success of everything they do? How and why and is it real? Did they ever have self-doubt or worry like I do sometimes? xxx

  8. Too funny, think we all have those moments, that is why there are so many trashy magazines for us too flick through at the long lines in the supermarket.

    And why not appreciate someone else's style, if something or someone inspires you, maybe we should celebrate that.

  10. I don't know if I ever want to be anyone else, but sometimes I do wish I had a time machine so I could travel to other times and experience some of the things other women did.

    Great question.

    AH ROCKS

  11. Whether we want to admit it or not, all of us women wish to be someone else at least once in our lives. I do so miss the classy style of that era!

  12. Jackie Kennedy had such style and class. I've never seen a woman who had that kind of elegance. Although Michelle Obama comes pretty close in my book!

  14. All of them so inspiring, especially (for me) Jackie and Audrey. I loved the book What would Jackie Do?

  15. I definitely have those moments... usually when I see a stylish and fit mom, with perfectly behaved children, who looks like she never breaks a sweat. ;-)

  16. I agree with Alicia--I'm sure there is someone but can't pinpoint one at the moment.

    Have a great Wednesday and thanks for popping by.

  18. Hi Simone, have found your blog through A-M.
    I'll be busy catching up on past posts, it looks divine.
    Audrey is fabulous.

  19. wonderful inspiration, I think we all want to parts of so many inspiring women. a sprinkling of this and a sprinkling of that!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Absolutely, I think we all feel this way at times. And to have these inspirational women forever in our hearts is to know we can achieve anything we desire. So nice. xx's

  21. Oh I know what you mean, I'm always so envious of the style of European women that Garance photographs....so effortless!

  22. OH YES I'd love to be Jackie or Audrey ... So gorgeous! Your are great Simone, I love your posts!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Alas, I am not a timeless woman. My style is very different from these lovely ladies. I LIKE me, but I do fancy what it would be like to be a more graceful version.

  24. I was a teenager when Jackie Kennedy was in the White House, she was such a roll model for me growing up! Loved her style and personality!
    Great post!

  25. Not sure if I i'd like to be Jackie Kennedy though - having to put up with a cheating husband!?! Perhaps her fashion sense and style - yes!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. All have great style and grace, although I can't say I admire Jackie's complicated romantic relationships. It's funny and sad to think that someone so stylish and accomplished must have lacked esteem in some way.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I so agree I know looks can be deceiving so I would atleast like to feel like I have it all together like some of them appear to!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh, yes! But I think it has so much more to do with confidence and grace than anything else! And a really "to die for figure!" :)
    Blessings!

  29. i completely want to be audrey.

    oh id die tobe her.<3

  30. Think my favourites would be Jackie and Audrey, with Princess Grace coming third

  31. Yes, but often it's the clothes or the hairstyles, especially retro/vintage, that I envy, rather than the woman herself. Or maybe it's the confidence to pull it off that I'd like, particularly when I have my daughter's negative voice in my ear..."Oh, Mum, you can't wear that. That's just embarrassing."

  32. Who do I love? Reese Witherspoon, Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet xx

  33. Lets not forget that all these gorgeous woman have rolled around on their couches with no make up on wearing tracky pants. I admire a number of my friends for their poise, family values and tenacity. The good looks and fashion of others, I love but I don't desire. These woman would have spent way too long in the mirror trying to keep up appearances. I'd rather get out there and live it up.

  34. oh simone- this is why my gals are called Ella as in Fitzgerald & Audrey as in Hepburn!!

    do you think i'm sending them in the right direction...

  35. I DO agree with you!!!!!!!!!!! Being another woman for one day would be great!! A different accent, hairstyle, makeup,...WOW!!! Let's keep dreaming, my friend!! Kisses. Bela.

  36. i wish i were grace kelly, kate balnchett or marion cotilliard...

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yes of course. Audrey and Grace for sure are on my list. I think they are wonderful inspirations and I'm sure they had women they admired as well. We can all learn from each other. That last dress is swoon worthy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. It is only natural to have that wish sometimes, but one should not have it too often. To be happy and content with what you are and if you are not reinvent yourself into a new self not someone else! There is only one YOU!

    ReplyDelete
  39. lovely photos of lovely women! I say every woman wishes to be someone else from time to time. I always wish to be one of those women with stainless legs for example ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. judging by the photos you put on your blog Simone I think you are equally as beautiful. I think it's the hairstyles and clothes of the era as most women of that day were so so stylish. I do think though we all have those moments.

  41. But only for a little while........

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh gorgeous pics Simone. I am a HUGE admirer of Audrey Hepburn, such grace and class...*sigh*. ~ Tina xx

  43. Great pick's of some great ladie,s Maroline Monroe always intrigued me shame about how her life ended but I always thought she was gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do admire so many stylish women but sometimes feel that too much beauty and style could be a poisoned chalice. When I see somebody like Brigitte Bardot and how the media treat her over the years and the loss of privacy I don't know how they cope. Beatrice Dalle, Mirka Moira, are a couple who come to mind that i admire. Beauty that grows with age and creativity that flows as you age is what I aspire to. xx

  45. Great tute on the heart pin, so cute!
    If I could be anybody for a day it would be Stefanie Powers, she is such a wonderful conservationist and humanitarian!

  46. I was named after Jackie O! I think alot of the women we admire today wouldn't be as admirable if they didn't have as much confidence. We should take what they've learned, and use it because we can do big things too :)
