The Muse Project - Volume 2

Is there anyone in your life who you look forward to seeing what they're wearing each time you get together?  I do.  For me, it's my cousin, Amie.  I tease her, because she is ALWAYS the best dressed person in the room.  She's got an eye for accessories and is always dressed impeccably. 

I was super excited when she was willing to participate in my Muse project.  The thing is, she is incredibly busy and so I'm thankful she took time to help me out.  Here are her answers to my questions:

Q: Do you have a style icon?
A: I don't really have a style icon...I do get excited around award show season however and dream of being in Hollywood and getting to pick out a fabulous dress...and I do LOVE Betsey Johnson-everything from her jewelry, to handbags, to her fabulous dresses!

Q: What is your favorite piece of clothing?
A: Right now I would have to say skinny jeans...

Q: Where do you look for inspiration?
A: I usually look in magazines and watch the store front windows...I also pay attention to what people are wearing when I'm out and about-to get new ideas and inspiration.

Q: Is there anything or any style you would NEVER wear/attempt?
A: Ummm I think back to a time when I wore hammer pants with a big shoulder-padded baggy mock turtleneck from The Limited....never again!  (For the record, I remember this outfit and I thought it was preeeetty cool at the time!)

Q: You've been offered the September cover of Vogue and given free reign to travel in time to pick what you'd wear. In which past/present/future outfit would you be photographed?
A: I would pick a fabulous Betsey Johnson poufy dress and great heels!

{Okay, I had to include this one from Farm Aid because check out that Tshirt. 
Even when she's dressed down, she's adorable and hysterical.}

Without a doubt, Amie has been my muse for years.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I dress to impress HER whenever we're going to be together.  I respect her opinion... actually I just respect her.  She's a fantastic Mom, a loving wife, a faithful daughter & sister and an incredible friend.  Not only is she my fashion Muse, she's my life Muse.  Is she the cutest thing, or what?

Do you have a family member that inspires you and your style?

I love this! And I love you both and think you are both gorgeous and may be developing a complex about how amazingly beautiful my family is. How can I keep up!?

Oh she is adorable. My family fashion muse is my sister-in-law. You may know her as Kimberellie... she is always beautifully dressed, and inspired me to start paying more attention to my clothes.

I love that girl, and her style :) AND I remember some of those outfits she was talking about when we were younger- but it WAS cool back then!

Aaah, very sweet! She does dress fabulously, but you look just as awesome.
I have two family members that have influenced my style - 1) my Aunt Denise - she is classic and quality 2) my sister Leah - she has Flair!!!
