Indie darling wannabe

I want to find my personal style, but I don't want to be categorized as fashionable or trendy in any way. You might not be an independent film costume designer, but maybe you can help me find blogs or sites for inspiration.

I want a small wardrobe, with pieces that are comfortable and plain, but not boring or unflattering. I absolutely hate to shop for clothes, maybe because most of what I find in clothing stores seem trendy or too descriptive. If I didn't hate to shop so much, I'd probably be shopping in thrift stores more often, but I've found shopping on ebay to be more of a time-saver. I'm just not sure of what I should be searching for on ebay.
If anything has served as inspiration for me so far, it's been indie films (especially those by Nicole Holofcener and Noah Baumbach) and a lot of French films.
Some actresses have this style going for them (or whose characters do, anyway), like Catherine Keener (her body type is a lot like mine), Lili Taylor, and Rebecca Hall.
I'm open to any suggestions, even if you don't know of websites to recommend. Thank you!
