usually i talk about my inspirations, fashion-related or not...but:
back when my blog-o-rama was over at livejournal, i used to do long laundry lists of fashion-related things that i was obsessed with at any given time. sometimes the things on the list intersect with whatever's haute right now, but not always. i miss doing that! so, here's a little blast from the past, content-wise. maybe i'll bring it back as a regular feature here!
fashion obsessions o' the moment:
-yellow flats -cocktail hats, small and cocked ever so slightly to the side -stacks of gold bracelets, of differing size, all worn on one arm -clutch purses -vintage and antique brooches worn on the strap of a sundress or jumper-style dress -clip-on earrings, either of the rhinestone or acid colored beaded sort -doorknocker earrings, in gold, natch! -girly sweatshirts, i.e. sweatshirts made to fit a womanly form, with interesting details. see anti-factory's soon-to-be-released sweatshirts, for example! -wearing a straight or pegged skirt over a full one, so the full one bursts out at the bottom like a ruffle. -unexpected color combinations, like orange + beige + black, fuchsia + aqua -bright, bright fire engine red-orange hair. -massive cocktail rings like this one or this one -fitted leather jackets -suspenders -any knit featuring the feather and fan stitch pattern -hearts -tattoos that creep down the arms, especially on a woman, but on both sexes, it's incredibly sexy. -high waisted skirts and jeans (though i can't wear them (too big busted/short-waisted...but i admire how they look on those that can rock them.) -boots, boots, boots. i like them to be knee high, mostly, and of the vintage variety, mostly. with some interesting detail.
now with illustrations! so not like the old days. click on any linked/highlighted word to see what i'm talkin' 'bout! :)
