Style Crush: Jemima Kirke of "Girls"

I was a little late to the party for HBOs breakout hit, GIRLS. But I'm here now, and I'm not leaving.
(Kirke in Green)

This show is hilarious. Like, cackle-out-loud funny. And other than the fact that most of the characters are Jewish white chicks living in Brooklyn, I can totally relate to each of them. Although everyone keeps comparing the series to the Holy Grail of Chick Shows (SATC), I think the characters are much more multi-dimensional and realistic.

But my fave fashionable filly of the bunch has to be Jemima Kirke's free-spirited "Jessa Johansson." Get into this girl. Not only is she born from rock royalty (her dad was a member of British rock groups Free/Bad Company), but her mom owns the uber-popular  West Village NYC consignment shop Geminola (Hello, Pat Field borrowed clothes from this store for SATCs Wardrobe!!). So it's no surprise that this chick has style coming out the wazoo.

Check out some of my favorite "Jessa" looks from season 1:

Clearly a master of vintage shopping. I bet it's safe to assume that Jessa's fashion choices are closely aligned with Jemima's. Cannot wait for season 2.
