To say I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Peaches Geldof would be an understatement. She was hugely influential to me as a teen and before I had even started this blog, I would proudly display pictures of her on my MySpace page. To me she was edgy and cool, not someone everyone had heard of and a little bit alternative. Basically I considered her my own personal “it-girl” and I desperately wanted to be like her.
I first featured Peaches Geldof on the blog way back in 2009. I was a huge fan of her style and this was reflected in countless outfits I put together in my late teens and early twenties. Like I said in my first post about her, I loved how adaptable her wardrobe was. It would be impossible to pinpoint her style into one specific kind of category, which really resonated with me as a young adult. I didn’t necessarily want to find an identity for my style either, I wanted to experiment and try different things. I also loved that a lot of her outfits felt very accessible to a cash-strapped gal like myself. The op shop was my best friend back in those days and I was able to find some really unique pieces that I believe complimented my Peaches Geldof aesthetic.
Peaches Geldof was also the inspiration behind my decision to dye my hair dark way back in 2013. Being a natural blonde like me, I figured there was a chance I could pull it off… To this day I still can’t decide what colour I like on Peaches the most.
When remembering Peaches Geldof, it felt important to me that I complete her edition of my Style Icon series on the blog in full. After all, she not only continued to inspire my style years after I finished high school but she still continues to up until this very day. It would be a shame not do her style justice and in 2021, I believe it is still very much relevant. I’ll be doing one last post after this one to complete the triology.
Are you or were you a fan of Peaches Geldof’s style?
