♥ never judge a book by it's cover.

inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes.
for me, it comes in the shape of a small, black, new york city kitty.

i have always adored the simple pen and ink illustrations of 
one of my favorite childhood gems:
esther averill's  jenny and the cat club

her signature color palette throughout each adventure
is made up of a sharp contrast of black and white 
with pops of bright, bold color
ranging from fire engine red, to bright yellow
to kelly green.

i often like to put together outfits using 
these same motifs:

and once you start looking for inspiration, 
it pops up everywhere: like on the inimitable carrie bradshaw.

what inspires you? 
whether it is a piece of artwork, a character in a movie or another book cover 
i hope that the next time you  judge whether it is good--
decide first whether or not you would want to wear it.
