Like a lot of girls and women I do love pretty things, and I believe so much inspiration can be found from something as trivial as a designer dress in the window of a vintage shop, which is why I'm always looking for an opportunity to mention what my characters are wearing. I know, I know that isn't exactly considered good characterization, but I do enjoy playing dress up with my characters once in awhile.
While browsing the web, I came across Ulyana Sergeenko's F/W 2011-2012 lookbook and had a YA moment, instant love. You guys probably don't know this about me, but I am a huge fan of anything 50s and 60s, and would find any reason to set my novels in those eras. Ulyana's line was inspired by the 1950s Vogue Soviet Union, and it makes me wish I had the balls to actually write a historical novel.
These pictures were a few of my favorites. It makes you wonder what kind of girl would have worn these ensembles, doesn't it?
