For the love of Fashion

Thursday, February 17, 2011

When I started this blog, I didn't have a specific intent in mind. I only began to write and post about things that inspired me and made me happy on a daily basis.
And fashion has always been such a big part of that. If you've been on this journey with me for a while, you know that nothing gets my creative juices flowing quite like the dig, hunt and score of amazing finds through thrift and vintage shopping.
And recently, this creative journey has taken a hard left into territory that may just end up being my calling.  I'm often inspired by a runway show, a gorgeous celebrity muse, or simply something I find in a magazine... 
Then I team up with my uber talented seamstress & styling partner, and we hack away... it's been really cool to see just how much we can do, while spending very little. 
Case in point: This little red number was a super boxy, unflattering suit (circa bad 90's), but the pants fit so well, I just couldn't pass up the $5 price tag. After some tailoring of the top, I have a daring ensemble that I'll wear in place of a cocktail dress when I'm feeling a bit bold and rebellious. 

The rest of the time, I'll pair the pants with my leopard flats and camel cashmere sweater, belted over a tee.
