Spell & The Gypsy Collective We grew up pouring over photos from Woodstock 69' and even back then I knew that one day I wanted a jacket like the beaded tasseled leather number Jimi Hendrix wore on stage. And so we looked back to our childhood memories once again for the inspiration with this jacket. Made in a soft white leather, the jacket features blue and white wooden beads that have been hand-threaded onto the suede tassels that drape from the back, the front and sleeves.
Wardrobe Refashion My inspiration: from Charlotte Russe, although I don't think it's available anymore My version: I choose not to cut out the fabric underneath the lace - I actually tried a version where I did but did not like the way that it looked on me (probably more suited to someone in their 20's) fashion from old people Valentino Fall 2014 Menswear Inaugural dress of Fay Webb Gardner, 1928-29 Fuchsia Dress c. 1923-1925 Nasjonalmuseet for Kunst, Arketketur, og Design (via omgthatdress) Hi, this is Emily, and I know this isn’t a dress, but I thought I would put up a link to this project all the same for folks that might be interested… janis joplin fashion I heard a lot of Janis Joplin growing up.

She was a breath, no, a gust, of fresh air.
49 Dresses: DIY Reunited with my sewing machine and it feels so good. Actually, that's a lie, I got a new machine, so it actually feels better.

27 Club - culture We love a photography spread that is so much more than a montage of pretty pictures. And if you love a good story, well look no further than our stunning tribute to some of the stars of the music industry, 27 Club, as featured in culture’s Feb/March edition. An ode to rock legends of the past and present, the talented musicians featured in this spread all had one tragic element in common – they died at the tender age of 27. Culture caught up with some of the creative team members who worked on this shoot to find out the journey they underwent to take such a cool story from concept to completion. "With the recent passing of Amy Winehouse, it got me thinking about the influence she had on so many people of this generation with her music and her style,” says Silver Bullet creative director Ben Luker. “But it wasn't just Amy that left a dent on pop culture.
