Inspiration: Auntie Mame

Inspiration is like rainfall.

One drop lands on your head…another on your nose…and another on your tongue. Drip, drip, drop…

Little droplets of random thoughts, reckless musings, a tweet here, a conversation there and then it all flows, showering over you.

Yesterday, I had a déjà vu inspired by a vintage photograph. It was of a black and white check jacket that likely sparked in my mind because the McQueen Fall 2009 jackets were so beautiful and striking and in my recent memory database.

Maybe subconsciously they are the reason I’ve been wearing so much black and white this season. Or maybe the black and white garb is a result of my encounter with Mr. Ford. Who can be certain?

Today, I had a meeting to talk social media (part of a global social media thing I am working on with some very cool folks) and afterwards, was tweeting when I should have been fashion blogging…answering a question from @wornjournal about party planning characters.

Maybe it was the fact that I was in event planning mode, maybe it was the vintage inspiration from yesterday, or maybe just because it’s the holidays –  but the party planner that came to my mind was Auntie Mame. It’s one of my favourite films of all time.

Watching the original trailer inspired this post. So many things she wore in that movie resonate with me and resonate with the virtual fashion storage closet in my head.

May it inspire you…to dream a little, to laugh a little and to wear something shiny as you gear up for the holidays – however you may celebrate them.
