seeking inspiration · be the art

i went to an event at an art museum. have a few drinks...check out some art...and, of course, look for bits of inspiration.

lucky me: my stylish cousin, ALYSSA, came along. and she rocked neon, orange and gunmetal.
inspiration found!

and then...we stumbled upon this little platform.

so she became a beautiful statue!

ain't she purdy?


and later we hammed it up in the photobooth. :-)

bemuse · not so good from my vantage point

oh patterned leggings. i really do love you.
with a long-ish shirt and a boyfriend-length blazer.
but this?

maybe if she had worn a looser tunic-style top, it would have been better.
she didn't.

muse · as the summer sun sinks

today marks the end of summer. and as we bid the season goodbye, let's enjoy a moment of silence for the breezy, dreamy clothes we love to wear in the heat.

moment of silence over!

JESS paired her nautical maxi-skirt with over-sized glasses, loose curls and fun, understated jewelry.
the quintessential summer look.

goodbye tank tops.
goodbye maxi skirt.
(wait! no! maxi skirt YOU can stay! just add a great jacket like this one or this!) 
goodbye bare feet.
'til next year.

muse · i scream

the sign bid me 'hello' from afar.

hello! and YAY! (my reply)

and then...a vision. can it be? an ice cream man in a bubblegum ice cream colored shirt - stripes, of course - and a hat to match?

oh yes. if i worked in an ice cream shop, i would rock this every single day.

thanks for the ice cream mr. fabulous!

friday find · flirty floral

so i dug a LITTLE bit deeper this time.

the thrift store i visited was organized by clothing type, then organized by size. can i get an 'organized by color'?!
ok, i may be asking a bit much. no worries,i was looking for a print anyway.

and i found one!

flirty. floral. fun.
 and just in time to finish out the summer.

bemuse · you should be on the rink

a couple don'ts for this monday morning.

i'm ok with wearing this color. but.

a) if you're an adult, your carnation pink dress should NOT have ruffles and be covered in sparkles.
b) if you're an adult, you should NOT wear clear, kitten-heeled flip flops
c) if you're an adult, you should NOT wear a pretty pink headband that exactly matches your dress.

this oversized 6-year old should have been spotted on the ice skating rink...not the sidewalk.

muse · the 70s reloaded

some clothes should stay in the decade from which they came.  this is probably true for most of the clothes people rocked in the 70s.

but this is not a rule. 
it's not always the case. 

as i watched this style-maven stroll down the street, i started singing the Bee Gees' 'You should be dancing' because, really, it just fits, right?

nice pants. nice hat. and, hard to see, but, awesome tassel purse.

muse · in twin style

it was like a dream.

i turned my head and saw these two about to strut onto the elevator.

so, naturally, like any good stalker, i hopped up and sprinted down the stairs so i could see how fabulous these two were from the front.

and they were. fabulous.

the sweetest ladies you ever did matching floral prints.

i told these two dolls that i want to be them when i grow up. so i have a few decades to find myself a twin!

of course there was a quick touch up prior to the photo.
