My Fashion Inspiration

I'm fond of claiming that the way I dress is not heavily influenced by the trends of each passing day in fashion. However, that doesn't mean that I don't allow anything to influence the way I dress. I get my fashion inspiration from a number of sources, just like everyone else. Here are some of my primary sources:
#1 Zebras/Dalmatians/Dominoes: Don't misunderstand--I'd never actually wear Zebra print itself, but I'm very fond of black and white prints. This is the favorite of my 5 black and white print dresses.

#2 Clowns and/or Rainbows: More colors = better, and no one will ever be able to convince me otherwise.


 #3 Baby Sister Sarah: Sparkly, brightly colored, jingles whenever you move--I'm cool with that! (And yes, I also have a coordinating set of bangles for every sari I own, but Isaac didn't give me enough time to find them when he was taking my picture).




#4 Black and White Movies: Anything with Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck. If Angel dressed for dinner every day in a three piece suit, I would be okay with that. But since he won't, I'll just wear my pencil skirts and keep searching the internet for an *affordable* petticoat to give my full skirts the 50s fluff.

  1. I tend to gravitate toward black and white polka dot, but I don't own any zebra. I love the last dress.

  4. Wow, I love your clothes! So unique and interesting! I love color too but I think you sometimes take it to the next level! You are definitely and inspiration for me, and your clothing and dressing style is one of the first things (well, first was your snarky humor and forthright way of writing) that drew me to your blog!
