inspiration











today's outfit was heavily inspired by starr from a thought is the blossom. i saw her beautiful floral dress over jeans, and loved how she was beginning her transition from winter to spring.









i am so enamored with dark florals, but after seeing so many soft pastels in fashion lately, i've decided to introduce a more delicate color palette to my wardrobe. ok, so i only half succeeded because i am wearing a lot of black. it's a start though, right?














































and can someone tell me in who's world this could be a dress? i mean, that thing would be most indecent without something on the bottom.
anyway, i'm off to get an oil change in my car. yay.

whoa! yours is soooo much better than mine. that dress (blouse, i mean. i could never make that work as a dress either) is so increidble. love the print and the material so much. reminds me of some of the sheer garments from the 20's!

more of a slip than a dress, huh? I think that's what makes it work so well - no bulk! which is a prob for the dress/jean trend a lot of times. You've played this trend perfectly!

That would be such a short dress! But I LOVE how you styled it. So perfect! Saving to my inspiration folder! :)
