Inspirations for Winter

I’ve been inspired by a few different things lately…  among them, Karen O (as always), a little dip back into Cabaret, skeletons, deer, sequins, studs, faux fur, and Bauhaus.

As the nights get colder and the days begin to gray, I find myself aesthetically drawn to dark themes, motifs from nature and how wolves can be juxtaposed with deer…  stylistically and metaphorically.

While Christian Siriano is showing at NYFW (literally, as I type…) I am unfortunately not there.  I have softened the blow of not being in NYC at the moment by immersing myself in other projects and today I got a surprise!  I ordered Diane von Furstenberg’s Book of Beauty: How to Become a More Attractive, Confident and Sensual Woman a few weeks ago and today it appeared at my doorstep!  Though I’ve only worked my way through the first few chapters at this point, I am in love with this book.  Originally published in 1976, the book offers classic and timeless advice for any woman, especially one in my peer group of the transitional twenty-somethings.  It is sincere and motivating and I can’t wait to devour it entirely.

Diane von Furstenberg will be showing tomorrow at 4pm and how I wish I was going to be there!  I can’t wait to see what she has in store!
