No-tori-ous for Style

Not only is this look by artist Sonia Li very charming, her purse made me LOL. Her scallop patterned romper, in a dreamy shade of blue, makes me think of something  a mermaid would wear should she pose for a retro-inspired photo shoot. Her peep toe sandals are darling, as are her modified ModCloth shades.

But here’s what made me squee with glee. Sonia decoupaged images of fruit and Tori and Candy Spelling! Ever since Tori made a comeback with her show So NoTORious, I realized that she had been the most under appreciated member of the original 90210 cast. I’m totally inspired by Sonia’s purse.

Which celebrities would you DIY onto your accessories?

    So NoTORious was such an awesome shoe, it made LOVE Tori. I cant believe it didn’t make it. Oh well, i guess people just don’t have good taste anymore.

    a young Babs, love Funny Girl.

    I really love the idea of this, but to put it nicely, Tori Spelling is one of the worst actresses to ever grace tv and is only famous because of daddy…

    other than that, the romper and outfit in general are adorable and the idea for the bag is, too!

    Angela, that IS the point of the bag!

    It is a commentary on celebrity culture and society rather than promoting stardom.

    The romper is actually a vintage Jantzen bathingsuit circa 1950′s~!

    Thanks for your comment!
