Hands down my biggest sartorial influence as a teenager--Gwen Stefani (formerly of No Doubt, for any younger kids out there). Her style has always been punk rock chic meets retro glam and therefore we are, in fact, style spirit sisters. Take this look, for example. Very "cool mom". She's got mixed prints and the headpiece for interest, but sneakers for running around. This look very much reminded me of this video aka the answering machine/pager message for every girl in the 90s.
