My Inspiration That Was a Teacup

It's pretty ironic actually... I was inspired by my last post. After I wrote it, I immediately started hunting through the internet looking for more inspirational photographs, but I found none that had that special spark. Then I became hungry and went into my kitchen.
On my walk over, I was met by a dainty discontinued vintage teacup. Now usually I would walk right by it, but today I started gazing at it, truly noticing its beauty.
I stared at it long enough to notice that this little teacup had the most amazing color scheme that I could ever find; a matted gold paired with royal blue and a hint of gray. I fell in love and raced over to the internet to make up my soon-to-be outfit. This, I could find.



American Apparel Cardigan. Patterned Shirt from random vintage store. Aviators from Ray-Ban. Accessories and non-skirt from Urban Outfitters. Shoes Calvin Klein. Ribbed Tights Ellen Tracy.

Please forgive me for the absolutely horrid photo; it's me and my awesome Photoshop skills. Unfortunately, the Lux Tulip Skirt from Urban Outfitters (a.k.a. my favorite skirt) ripped the day before I took this photo, and therefor, I had no skirt to take the picture with. So I took a picture of me in the outfit without it on then cut my body in half and added it in the middle. So as you can imagine, the whole outfit doesn't lay right, and looks 1,000% better in person but you get the point...
Inspiration is in everything.
(I'll upload the real photo in the sidebar a.s.a.p.)

i totally agree. i am the girl who got asked by her teacher what she thought of some room (in some historical old house that was painted robins egg blue and had crystal chandeliers and sheer curtaining everywhere) and told the teacher that it would "make a pretty dress"

I also find inspiration in random images and objects. A teacup- I get the way your brain was working there!
