My Fashion Icons & Inspiration

Hello Lovelies, this morning all of my monkeys are home sick and at the moment watching Alice in my bedroom so I thought I would take a few minutes to tell you who are some of my fashion Icons and where I get inspiration from. You may also learn something new about me. Let me start off with saying I may be too shy to make YouTube videos or get up on a stage but when it comes to fashion I've never been afraid no matter how much I was teased. Since as far back as I can remember I've loved all things vintage and wore everything from 40s dresses to 70s bellbottoms to school. Buying from vintage shops or sewing my own. I watch old movies and day dream about living in that time. I think a big part of it is the history behind it all. I'm a history nut and can't help wondering what life was like when people actually wore the clothing and accessories I love. Ok so that's enough rambling. 
Some who inspire me are Grace Kelly, Rita Hayworth, Jane Russell, Melinda Gordon (Ghost Whisperer ..not actually vintage but I was in love with everything she wore on the show), Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Dita Von Teese and so so many others.

If it wasn't for Canadian winters I would wear Dresses (I have an entire closet full ..obsessed much lol) every single day. Who inspires your fashion choices?
