    I wanted to make a French-inspired look based on Julie Dreyfus’ character Francesca Mondino in the film Inglorious Basterds. Even though her outfits often tread the line of outlandish, she really rocks the animal print in a way that is sexy, sassy, and stylish. (See: and )

    I used the Safari Planet Dress as my base to create a vintage look with all of Dreyfus’ glamor and flair, but toned down to a more modern chic.

    I wanted to put together an outfit that was representative of Japanese street fashion. Japanese streetwear is very bold, vibrant, and reflective of their pop culture, so I thought choosing a dress with a lot of flash and accenting it with some vibrant tights and funky booties would create this effect nicely. The
    Pseudorantemum Incendia Earrings and Arcade Parade Necklace serve as an obvious tribute to the way digital media (anime, video games, etc) has so thoroughly permeated every aspect of Japanese pop culture and fashion. Finally, the Cat Above Your Hat Umbrella seemed to perfectly fit the Japanese concept of “kawaii”, an obsession with the super-cute that shows itself in their clothing, media, and even in their modern art (Takashi Murakami, anyone?)

    I was going for a look that took the traditional, bland British vibe (think rainy days and bowlers) and fused it with England’s punk-y, counter culture streak. The Michelle Dress and En-Trenched With Style Coat give the outfit a formal, classic base, while the Take a Bow Gloves, Eighth Wonder of the World Booties, and Pyramids and Spheres and Rhinestones, Oh My! Bag complete the outfit for a look that’s part Kensington High Street, part Camden Town.

For night, sticking with the US of A theme the Stayton dress with the super sexy electra heels. A little bling of jewlery and you are good to go! God Bless America…and ModCloth!
