I’ve had this image in my inspiration binder for several years:
It’s from a Gudrun Sjoden catalog. I don’t think they do paper catalogs anymore, which is a shame as they were amazing sources of color pairing and pattern mixing inspiration. This photo alone probably sparked three or four outfits. But this time around I realized I had a black and white dress with irregular spots in my wardrobe and could get closer than ever to the original look. Startlingly close, in fact, though a few details are different.
Do you find that the same images can inspire you again and again?
