ACCIDENTAL ICON-LYN SLATER

I’m a fashion blogger, I love connecting with other fashion forward creative thinkers. Tonight a good friend sent me a link to Accidentalicon.com  

I instantly fell in love, Fashion is a perspective its ones outlook on personal culture and art. I am inspired to create by finding what motivates and inspires others.  Lynn Slater is truly a fashion icon, having the courage to embrace all of who she is, creating a fashion blog that promotes beauty, honestly and destroys cultural boundaries.  

I started Accidental Icon because I was having trouble finding a fashion blog or magazine that offered an urban, modern, intellectual aesthetic but also spoke to women who live what I call “interesting but ordinary lives” in cities. Women (like me) who are not famous or celebrities but are smart, creative, fashion forward, fit, thoughtful, engaged, related and most importantly clear and comfortable with who they are.
