I feel like this is fashions way of trying to catch up to the jetsons fashion, even if we haven't caught up technologically with our own flying cars yet.

dapper kid said...

The glitz factor totally does it for me, I'm such a magpie! And I do love 'futuristic' inspired fashion :)

WendyB said...

Susanna-Cole said...

Oh I'm so thankful for your blog, because I think I would miss out on a lot of inspiration and trends I never would have noticed or seen before, if it wasn't for your blog! Space-age influence, I love it, some really edgy and fun looks here! <3

Allison said...

I love how edgy and different these looks are! I don't think that I could pull them off (except for a few of the dresses), and it makes me wonder which celebs will be rocking these looks! :)
