Inspiration inspires me.

One of my new years resolutions is to start blogging more. Not just about what I'm doing, but about what inspires me and excites me. For those who know me, I'm really into the creepy, weird, and unusually beautiful. I love to find a way to translate into fashion. Here are some of my favorites. The already legendary Tim Burton inspired shoot that ran in (sept?) Harper's Bizarre.......

I'm sure there are many people out there who might find these photos disturbing and not beautiful or even all that fashion focused. But check out these photos from Numero 88. They could have easily been inspired by something as powerful as the Tim Burton photoshoot. It only takes a tiny element from something you see, to create something unique on your own. Everyone has a different perspective on art, and that's why I love fashion design. It's wearable art - and there is nothing cooler than someone liking your art so much they actually want to wear it.

Here is a photo I have held onto for almost 4 years now. I really want to recreate this type of setting and design and feel for a future photo shoot. So absolutely beautiful.

And finally, the Rodarte sequin ribcage dress. Rodarte is Target's "Go International" designer of the month. Rodarte also happens to be one of my favorite design duos. Generally the Go International lines at Target really interest me from a designer's stand point, but I rarely buy any of the pieces for myself - just because I'm a real stickler for wearing things that no one else is wearing. But this rib cage dress had to be my exception. It's so me in so many ways. I mean, Donnie Darko is still my favorite movie. ;) (The dress is actually sleeveless...they styled it with a striped shirt underneath, which is a little too "lolly goth" for me, but I would wear it with an oversized boyfriend black cardigan and serious heels.
