inspired dressing: quilts

I am inspired by quilts. I especially love Amish quilts.  I love the clean design work and the stunning use of color. And everything can inspire the way I dress. Here’s how a beautiful quilt can inspire a modern girl to get dressed.

I found this stunning quilt on quiltstudy.org.  That’s the comprehensive site of the International Quilt Study Center. It’s a fantastic place to learn and to ooh and ahh over beautiful quilts.

So I started with the draped t shirt by Alexander Wang (via Moda Operandi) paired with some denim by G-Star and added the all important accessories:  an armload of bracelets by Reminiscence, Givenchy Cat Eye Glasses (via Net-A-Porter) , and metallic flats by Jeffrey Campbell (via Need Supply Co.).  I’m good to go.
