Weekend Recap: What Inspires?

I am so ready for fall its making me crazy, and by crazy I mean.. wearing wooly, layered clothes when the temperature reads a beautiful 75 degrees. Oh well, a girl can dream, can't she?

My family was in town from South Carolina this weekend and that always means lots of adventures around the city. Taking the "out-of-towners" - on the town, which I love!

Oh... and Friday I received a package in the mail that I had been anticipating - my new shoes from Steve Madden! I have been on the hunt for some brown chunky sandals and finally found the perfect pair for the perfect price. So, I had to take them for a spin with this pink flowing muu muu. The outfit was a combination of two inspirations - Carrie Bradshaw in season 5 (when Sarah Jessica Parker was pregnant and they were putting tons of fabric on her to cover the bump) and a photo from The Sartorialist on in the Fall '07 Fashion Week archives.

Saturday began my second week of Sewing Class, in which I complain about getting up early for , but am always happy I made the effort. I'm learning - "a stitch in time, saves nine". After one night of wearing the new shoes I wasn't satified with just one wear - I had to take them out again - and this time in my outfit inspired by Farrah Fawcett from "Charlie's Angels".

Sunday was my big push for the fall season to begin.. thinking maybe my layers and wooly socks would will the cold weather. The day didn't look like it would go my way, but luckily we headed up the mountain to the Griffith Observatory where there was a nice brisk breeze! So my "outdoor-ranger" look inpsired by a spread in Teen Vogue was just right.

Hey, I thought you might dig this. I believe it's a behind the scenes shot of the filming of the Sex & the City Movie.
