The Signature Style Project - Information Gathering

I considered a number of ways to get started with the Signature Style Project, but to be honest, there was only room for one result.  I LOVE research.  I enjoy a good outline, I like journaling, cutting things out, tacking them to a bulletin board or taping them to a wall and then trying to make sense of them.  It's what I do.

Fortunately, Pinterest has allowed me to streamline that process a little so I can share it with you ;)

So here's what I've done so far:

First, I scoured pinterest and the internet for style images that appealed to me.  I did not censor myself or exclude anything.  I went on gut reaction.  If I liked it, it got pinned.

Then, I opened up my pinterest bulletin board for The Signature Style Project and started jotting down what things in each image evoked a feeling of joy or pleasure.  (And when I say jotted, I do mean with pen and paper..I have a collection of obsession for another time..)  Here's what I got:
  • Fur
  • Primary colors and jewel tones
  • feminine details
  • ruffles
  • peter pan collars
  • full skirts
  • pencil skirts
  • Sailor/military style embellishments
  • Hats, hats, hats..
  • late 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950's, early 60's
  • Edwardian style
  • ...more fur..
  • Things that create an hourglass shape
  • Shoes with a heel (no flats for me!)
  • Whimsy
  • Retro pin up
  • Red lips
  • Looonnnng eyelashes
  • Rosy cheeks
  • Gloves and fingerless mitts
  • An unexpected mix of complementing colors
And here are some of the images I pinned that I favored the most:
Now it's your turn!

Go forth and discover what images appeal to you.  Let me know what you love ;)

Hugs and Smooches,

  1. You have collected so many great images! Wouldn't it be fantastic to do a sew along or knit-along inspired by some of your photos? I love most of your inspiration - so just about anything would spark my interest.


Thank you for your comment! I read every one of them and they make my day :) Please do not post as anonymous (sadly, I have had issues with spammers lately :( Have a beautiful day!
