I draw a lot of inspiration from specific books, music, movie, characters, and people. I'll be making plenty of fashion inspiration posts here - I often find something to obsess over and it consumes me, seeps into my daily clothing hair and make up choices, until i have exorcised it from my system.
I can't think of a more badass, more ferociously inspiring woman to start with than Sparkle Moore. She was one of the first female Rockabilly singers and she was FIERCE as all get-out. She only recorded a couple songs but they are serious movers-and-shakers. And she pioneered female rockabilly - both musically AND as a fashion icon. She dressed mostly in menswear, suits, and leather, and rocked an OUT OF THIS WORLD platinum pompadour. Keep in mind this was all during the mid 1950's, when most women were wearing pearls and full skirts and generally being prim and proper. Move over Elvis, there's a new heartthrob in town.
