Hello again. I know it has been a long, long time, but I've been super busy and, quite frankly, I haven't been feeling very friendly towards cameras lately. Can we say New Years Resolution? Anyway, I have decided to just suck it up and deal with the consequences, this blog is supposed to inspire me to be more creative and was never intended as a vanity project... but I digress.
I watched 500 Days of Summer for the second time yesterday and I could barely concentrate on anything but the title character's style. Summer (played by Zooey Deschanel-of course) had this beautiful effortless 1960's ultra feminine style. With just a few mod pieces mixed in with really girly ones, she came off as fresh and enchanting, instead of locked into a monotonous look. This character was my inspiration for this outfit. The vintage 60's wool dress would normally look out of place on anything but a similarly vintaged Vespa, on the way to some excruciatingly hip destination, but I think the extra feminine touches make it equally feasible on a creaky old bike with a huge front basket for a trip to the market.
