ALL THE INSPIRATION YOU NEED FOR YOUR 90’S STYLE WARDROBE- THE INSPIRATION #6-“Like Teen Spirit”

  So….that 90’s feeling has been in the air lately….you see in on television, in music and in fashion. From 90’s Icon Winona Ryder starring in the hit sci-fi  Netflix show “Stranger Things”….

And continuing with some of the current street style pics from NY Fashion Week, I think it’s safe to say….the 90’s are back!

Some people hated the style of the 90’s and some people loved it, but from Grunge to Glam to Baby doll Rock n Roll, there’s a fun & modern way to bring back the style of the & keep it looking cool & fresh……

There’s nothing like the grey sky and cool air of fall to get you in the mood for something a little bit darker, tougher & stronger…..& to channel the vibes from the Pacific Northwest, where some of the most well known grunge bands originated.

I also love the whole 90’s baby doll rock n’ roll look of Courtney Love from Hole & the way she mixed a little dress with fishnets, dark lipstick, smudged eyeliner and a cool guitar.

Here’s some images to get inspired for the new look: Modern 90’s

The Inspiration #5 SWEET SUMMER

Spring is in the air…..dreaming about sun filled days in the park, green grass, pretty flowers, sitting by a lake….those first few days of warmth when you put on a new dress and sandals and you can actually leave your jacket at home….so good to be back in New York City after so many years in California! Experiencing the extremes of cold weather and rain again makes the anticipation of sunny spring & summer days so much sweeter…..

The Inspiration #5: Sweet Summer

rose gold, ballerina tulle, romantic interiors, pink champagne, fresh cut peonies & tulips…..

THE INSPIRATION #3 ENCHANTED FAIRYTALE

Just starting to enjoy the beginning of summer, sunny days, a little off schedule and just enjoying the moment…but at the same time looking ahead fashion-wise to Fall 2014 and Resort/ Spring 2015! Loving the mood of some of the collections that recently came down the runway, especially the jewel tone colors, prints and textures & just the richness of it all…

some styles and collections remind me of an enchanted forest….like the models came to life from an old fashioned fairytale and landed in the modern world.

Fall is such a fun season! What are you dreaming about wearing this year?

The Inspiration #2: Bohemian Modern

Now that the year is finally coming to a close and things are starting to wind down for the holidays, it’s the perfect time to start dreaming about what you are going to be wearing next spring! I’m loving the new “Modern Bohemian” look that was all over the Resort & Spring 2014 runways….

If you are one of the lucky ones jetting off to somewhere warm and tropical for the holidays, you might want to channel your inner free spirit while packing your suitcase. But, if not, you can still dream about frolicking on the beach or speeding away in your vintage convertible in some of these cute outfits…..

As always, it’s that little bit of contrast that makes any outfit exciting, so combine some glam accessories with your Boho look for a truly modern aesthetic.

The Inspiration #1: The Lady Is A Punk

It still feels like summer here in San Francisco. 

The days are warm & sunny which I love, but since I grew up on the east coast in New York City, by the time it’s September or October, I’m always feeling in the mood for true fall & all the cool clothes that go with it.

I’m loving the “Posh Punk” look that’s currently in all the stores and magazines. I’ve always loved a little contrast and a look that combines vintage-modern romance with a bit of a rock ‘n roll edge.

So, it’s kind of perfect that my first style inspiration post for Rock Paper Sequins is a look that I’ve been pretty much rocking since high school.
