Fringe Twins

I got my hair done today, and I can’t say I wasn’t inspired by Jean Shrimpton.

(I know Laet’li, you came up with Fringe Twins.)

A Decade of Fab: The 60’s

I don’t even know where to begin with the sixties. Mods? Rockers? Jackie O? Twiggy? Early Hippies? The 1960’s were a huge time for fashion; there was a much wider variety of trends and styles than previous decades. Skirts got shorter, boots got taller, styles became more risque and eccentric.

Look for: Babydoll dresses, Shift dresses, Cropped skinny pants, Flared jeans, Go-Go boots, PVC, Sequins, Pillbox hats, A line mini skirts, Chanel-inspired skirt suits, Wide brim hats

Colors/Prints: Brights, Rich colors, Black, White, Color blocking, Crazy prints, Checkered print, Paisley, Space inspired silver and spacey prints

Face/Hair: Bouffant, Afros, Bobs, Pixie cut, Short thick bangs, Exaggerated eyeliner, Pastel eyeshadow, Nude lips,

Watch: Mad Men (of course), Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Barbarella, Young Birds Fly

Inspired

I did my Spring Cleaning a little late and after clearing some of the clutter out of my small studio, doing a little rearranging and decorating I realized that if you don’t surround yourself with things that inspire you, what good are the things you have?

I love the crisp white paired with elegant black lines and the lime green border on my new Dwell Studio comforter. (And of course my cat Binx catching some sun!)

A beautifully cluttered ring holder gives me ideas just by looking at it.

Vintage Bazaar covers bring to mind trends past and inspiration for fashion’s future. (And I think every fabulous girl should have a photo of Jean Shrimpton somewhere)

So, what inspires you?
