Charlotte York Goldenblatt is my style icon. But for her ill-advised marriage to Trey MacDougal, she would have been my life icon as well. She mentioned working at her present gallery for ten years in “The Cheating Curve,” which indicates that she had the dream job of a gallery director by her mid-twenties. I don’t know anyone who would give up that career.
Nevertheless, I can still look up to her style. When I saw the Long Tall Sally spring line, it immediately gave me York-vibes. In fact there is a certain dress that I was sure Charlotte wore circa 2000.
