I was idly browsing Modcloth when I came across this adorable dress:
I love the black & white colour scheme, the slanty pockets and the buttons. Sigh.
I hadn't heard of Peggy Moffitt so I went to my trusty friend, Google Images. Talk about inspiration!
Peggy Moffitt liked bright tights ...
(I love how the circles repeat themselves across her dress and socks.)
And ... looking like a cross between a Regency soldier (the white stockings and black shoes) and a little boy (the shorts)?
I like how she combines colours in unexpected ways, and her distinctive hair and make-up -- the look is almost clownish, more scary than sexy. I doubt I want to try her make-up or hair (too lazy), but I find her palette of clashing bright colours inspiring.
