Feeling...Inspired


This image from Citizen Couture provoked a mixture of emotions from me. Firstly, I loved it. Then, I was jealous. Next, I realised that I didn't love the whole ensemble, and that I needn't be jealous, as fashion is about putting your own spin on things.... I am perfectly capable of working this look, in a much less colourful way that it true to my own style. I'm not so keen on the boots or sunglasses, but damn that kimono is beautiful, and yes Ms. Baba, I too love tasselled necklaces. Oh, and I really need to wear my turban more often/get a new coloured one. So taking a little inspiration from this fine lady, and adding a sprinkle of my own style, I ended up with one of my favourite outfits in a while. The hairstyle is explained below, but it really wasn't my intention to look like Cyndi Lauper (thanks mum).



Vintage shoes, trousers (American Apparel), blouse (Zara), vest (Topshop), head scarf (Tata-Naka), scarf round neck (M&S),



I've been meaning to try out this 'big curly hair + scarf' look for a while now. These girls just look so damn cool, I wanted a piece of the action. I have naturally curly hair so had no problem getting the volume and curls aspect, however my attempt was actually pretty lame. I'll have to try again, with a wider scarf and remembering to leave some curls out over my ears. I've forgotten where I got the beautiful shots above, but I'm pretty sure at least one of them was from a glam spam on the now defunct 'I'll Take The Snap Out Of Your Garters!'.

p.s. This was my 100th post- yay!

You look exquisite in this pictures! The era is completely captured and yet modernized. I especially love the lips -- perfection. You remind me of Kate Beckinsale.
