Where Do You Draw Inspiration From?

This outfit I drew from Nylon. I was trying to clean my room when I stumbled upon an old issue and just fell in love with the colors. Pretty pinks with purples and darker navys and the lovely stripes that they dressed Clemence Poesy in were divine. I had been meaning to this american apparel long sleeved strip leotard and it was the perfect time to debut it.

EDIT: My heart goes out to fellow blogger friend Ashley who had to put her cat, Milo, to sleep a few days ago. My thoughts are with you as you go through this difficult period Ashley! It will get better, though. I promise.
Wearing an american apparel leotard, black suede booties, vintage rainbow skirt, white sheer jacket, and hand-made navy tie belt.

I didn't know Clemence Poesy was in NYLON! Sweet :) I really do love her look.

Okay, so I totally thought this was you... I was about to say, Stylish have you been keeping something from us?!

NYLON ! Haha, I'm a spazz when it comes to Nylon, the magazine I hope to end up working at. It's far fetched, I'm aware, but it's nice to dream, eh? The clothes you're wearing work really great together, and most obviously, you look quite amazing. :)

Great combo, I don't think I could work the stripes and prints as well as you.

PS, as per your previous post, fricking Rhianna will lose ALL my sympathy if she gets back together with Chris Douchebag Brown.

gorgeous outfit, your hand-made belt is impressive! :)

Style Magnet; Sara said...

To be honest, I get a lot of inspiration from the online fashion community... whether its fellow bloggers or from runway pictures in LJ communities, I tend to think "What would Chictopia think?" or something along those lines haha.

When I'm really stumped on what to wear, I'll snag the nearest magazine and flip to a random page & go from there.

I love this outfit. And that issue of Nylon was so good! I'm tempted to go dig mine up :)

E said...

I draw a lot of inspiration from the internets, as well. Though I find a lot of outfits I'd like to try in magazines. I really love the way you styled this. Wonderful interpretation of the original.

Isabel said...

Hot outfit! I used to love Nylon so much but haven't picked it up since Paris Hilton was on the cover. Betrayal!!!

elyse said...
