pippi longstocking...

pippi!pippi! by djalicat featuring sleeveless dresses

I am super inspired by Pippi Longstocking right now. That girl had great style...bright, bold colors, color blocking, striped tights and socks, mix and match, big chunky sweaters and scarves, jumpers, Doc Martins. Love it!
I'm going to base my fall and spring collections on Pippi!

My fire rekindled...

NEW YORK, NY - FEBRUARY 14:  Tavi Gevinson at ...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeFor the first time in years I am excited about Fashion again...Let me explain. I have always loved fashion and clothes since as long as I remember but since I left Fashion School I haven't bought a Fashion Vogue, no Elle, no Harper's Bazaar. I felt that though I have a passion for fashion I didn't really follow the trends each season and I didn't need to buy these magazines to tell my what's 'In or Out'.
Also from 2006 - 2009 I was in Film School, not the most fashionable place. I was mostly wearing what was comfortable on set...jeans, t-shirts and hoodies...don't get me wrong, there were days where I dressed up. When we had our showcases I would out do everyone else and they'd be surprised that I wore dresses...I should've taken that as a hint.
And then last year I was unemployed after working at Border's for a year. My confidence took a beating and it was easier to just stay in sweats all day. I did try to 'get dressed' a couple times but I felt like what was the point?
Because I was unemployed and online all day I started to discover all the fashion bloggers...specifically, Tavi. She's the daughter I'll never have, she's me if I had the internet back in 1987 when I was 13, she's my new inspiration. I started this blog sometime last year and I am a little lazy with keeping it up...But not anymore! I've got opinions people and I'm going to yell them from the mountain tops that's the internet!
I'll be posting once a week, but hopefully more...fingers crossed.
