The Strength to Face the Day

{via Vogue May 2008}

I realize that these images are a bit old, ancient in fashion-world years, but they've just recently inspired me a great deal, so I thought, why not?!   These women are all strong, glamourous, powerful, and fashionable, all things that I'm trying my hardest to be, and while I'm not attempting to be a superhero, I do kind of dig the theme.  It's not as if I look at this editorial and think "oh, I could wear that", but it certainly creates an idea, a feeling of power that I wish to evoke and that I truly believe fashion helps us to embody.  When I get dressed in the morning, the costume I assemble gives me power, even when I feel so low that I can't imagine facing the world.  I need that, I think we all need that.  Thanks for reading, loves, it means the world to me.
