Sweet Inspiration

In My Twenties…

Inspired by the Poiret: King of Fashion exhibition and gala. Jessica Stam’s appearance in Dior, Marc Jacobs 20’s themes… the return of Gatsby, and my own feelings of decadence and appearance, of prohibition, and a shift consciousness. I’ve taken to looking at vintage clothing from the 20’s.

  1. I love the 20s. Such great style. I find today’s trends dissapointing in comparison!
