Inspired Style

Sometimes, a girl needs a makeover. And when I start to feel like a frump, I start with the classics. The ladies that make me sweat a little by pulling off the basics with style. The ones who spent a little time pulling it together so they could rip into the world with their teeth. My go-to broads? 

 

Elizabeth Taylor as Maggie the Cat- sweaty, sultry, and naked-er in a knee-length slip than any porn star. 

 

The penultimate girly beatnik- Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face- all black and jazzed. 

 

Anais Nin – the gypsy writing her own rules – lovers, scandal, and a diary worth reading. 

 

Trite and true, Coco Chanel dripping in pearls. 

 

And for a modern girl, the fabulous Selma Blair in fishnets and bedhead. 

It’s time to spend a little more time putting myself together- if nothing else, maybe I can fake it until I make it.

    Sometimes dressing up makes me feel glamorous and prettier than anything else can. It’s worth the extra prep time to me to turn heads all day and put a little spring back in my step.

  2. These are some awesomely inspirational women. I would add Audrey Tatou to my own personal list.

  3. Oh god, I so feel you. But I am broke broke broke and Old Navy basics are just not doing it for me these days.

  4. Okay, not to sound all stalker-y but we could totally be friends.

    (yeah, that sounded stalker-y)

  5. So with you on the Anais Nin comment. What a goddess. Henry and June is one of my all time favorite reads.

  6. I wore my hair down today instead of in a ponytail. EVERY person in my office commented on it. Even a couple of my patients…one that didn’t even speak much English. He managed to say, “Trying a new look today?” So my hair hasn’t been down since December…sue me! The bad part is that is really didn’t take that long to do!
