Inspired by the 40s
I am currently inspired by the feminine silhouettes of the 1940s, the soft coifs, the bold lips, the high waist…re-imagined into a more modern replication.
What I Saw: 60s Chic
I have a deep affinity/admiration for Natalia Vodianova. Like to the point where I was so sad for her when I heard she was divorcing her aristocrat husband with whom she has three kids. Aside from her personal life, I always enjoy seeing her editorials. She’s undeniably lovely in this 60s-chic photo shoot.

From Russia with Love
Black lace, expertly placed skin, ruffles and sparkles. I’m entranced by this voluptuous editorial.

Julia Stegner is as beautiful as ever in this editorial from Harper’s Bazaar 2008. I love the juxtaposition of the black & white against the desert. Enjoy!

60s Inspired Bangs
After an inner conversation with myself, I decided a hair chop is not something I am ready to do. Ro concurs. So I’ve become enthralled with the idea of cutting 60s-inspired bangs like Julia Stegner’s post wedding. Like?

Hello Hollywood! I love this breezy lookbook with gauzy fabrics, muted hues and platinum locks.

Summer of Rock
For some reason, it doesn’t bother me that Erin Wasson is completely typecast as the free-spirited hippy rocker. She wears it well.
