Inspiration Monday - Michele Trachtenberg

Monday, June 25, 2012


Today's Monday Inspiration over at Two Birds is Michele Trachtenberg, I recognise her from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

I have to admit that I don't own a denim jacket or anything denim - other than jeans - because, dare I say it?, I don't like them.

I decided that today would be the perfect day to debut my aztec maxi dress. It's way out of my comfort zone, I normally tend to steer clear of prints and patterns, but I saw this on eBay and kinda liked it, the bidding was about to end and I took a chance. I'd already three compliments on it before 9am today, so I guess I did good. Not bad for £6.50.

It is too long for me and I've tripped on it and got it stuck in the wheel of my office chair several times already today, but I don't care, it's making me feel summery and bright. We had 15mm of rain yesterday and the wind barely stopped raging so I needed a lift in my spirits.

To see how the others interpreted the inspiration and to see how Nora and Megan, aka The Two Birds, styled it (fabulously I might add) click here.

Happy Monday!

    1. Indeed. By the end if the day I was so tempted to use a bull clip to hold it out if the way. A new craze in office accessories?

  2. Wow! 6 and a half pounds for a maxi dress? That's a bargain! I love your take. The cardigan is perfect in place of the denim jacket. The cat wants to be in the photo too, it seems. :)

    Have a great week ahead, Hazel. :)

    Cheers,

    I love the print on your dress! And nothing wrong with not liking denim other than jeans!

  5. The dress is lovely on you! I feel similarly when I've worn anything aztecky! That made me laugh about the wheel as exactly the same happens to me!
    I was going to use my little satchel bag from your giveaway today in my shot, so annoyed I didn't remember to pick it up until after I'd taken the shots!
