While we love poring over pictures of what Kate Moss wears shopping or Diane Kruger's latest red-carpet looks, we take just as much delight in tracking the equally enviable ensembles of the web's best-dressed bloggers in our monthly Style Stalker story! Since the blogosphere is rife with fashionable femmes of the highest order, it was, as usual, quite a task to narrow down our picks to just one. However, when we came across the lovely Iris Gravemaker, 28, from the Netherlands, we knew our search was over! We're completely enamored with her chic sensibilities and keen eye for color. Possessing style know-how in spades, Gravemaker is the perfect stalkee and we're confident you'll agree!
One thing we especially adore about Gravemaker is her feminine and fashion-forward aesthetic. She often favors prim silhouettes and loves pairing a ladylike skirt or frock with to-die-for heels or a bright handbag. While girly looks are certainly a mainstay in her closet, she can also pull off more daring attire with aplomb--such as the cobalt dolman-sleeve dress she wore with sky-high platform booties--making her a true clothing chameleon! Furthermore, we think her go-to formula of combining a standout print piece with bold separates always adds up to a sophisticated outfit. Whether she's teaming a leopard-print skirt with a green blazer or a floral top with a yellow midi skirt, she never fails to construct a perfectly balanced ensemble! If you're as charmed by Gravemaker as we are, get ready to rejoice because we have all the details on today's featured looks! Plus, read on for our Q&A with the delightful blogger to find out about her favorite trends, places to shop, and more!--Erin Fitzpatrick
