Look of the Day: Under the Influence

I often blog about people or things that influence my style. One other element that influences my style is traveling. This past summer, after I came back from Beijing, I found myself drawn towards red, royal blues and yellow. Beaded bracelets and (fake) jade jewelry also made their appearance in my outfit. At first glance of this outfit, you may think I was under the influence of alcohol when I picked it out, but in fact it was Vegas that was the influence. While I was there this past weekend I observed Cocktail waitresses, Elvis impersonators, little old lady gambling addicts and showgirls. All of their outfits had me dreaming of feathers, gold Lamé and faux fur. This vintage jumpsuit satisfied my craving for all things Vegas, even if Casey thinks I look like C3PO in it " He excels at that".

I felt ohh soo Ginger from Casino in this outfit.
Looking at all the old pictures of my Grandma may have also influenced this outfit.

Copy Cat Style perhaps?
