[Alternative Muses] Writerly Style: Margaret Wise Brown

“Over the years I have learned that what is important in a dress is the woman who is wearing it.”–Yves Saint-Laurent

Iconic children’s book author Margaret Wise Brown had style to match her writing: timeless, straightforward yet unique, and unforgettable.

The stripes and strong shoulders, though clearly from the 1940s, are streamlined, edgy, and relevant:

Her bouncy, easy-going hairstyle is impeccably modern, and is the perfect accompaniment to her sleek, minimally accessorized dress:

 Some would say that a favorite doggo is the best “finishing touch” of all:

It’s no secret that Margaret Wise Brown was very outdoorsy and active, a lifestyle which effortlessly merged with her sophisticated and relaxed dress sense. She’s wonderful inspiration for anyone who values style, practicality, and a dash of whimsy.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

This is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction.

On 19th July, I saw Sarah Shook & the Disarmers at Ace of Cups. Country music isn’t my normal cup of tea, but Sarah Shook is one of the awe-inspiring exceptions.

On the 25th, I finally watched one of my bucket list acts: Lydia Lunch. Then I met her and gave her a drink. Good times. Satisfying times.
