The Inspiration Board: The Catcher In The Rye

One of our favorite things about reading The Catcher in the Rye was falling into a world of old-school aesthetics that J.D. Salinger evoked through his descriptions and characters. Yet, we’re finding that Holden Caulfield’s distinctive tone and style is still showing up in our wardrobes today. Some fashionable suggestions after the jump. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: “An Education”

“An Education” actress Carey Mulligan may have been robbed of a Golden Globe this weekend, but seeing her on the red carpet reminded us of just how award-worthy her style was in the movie. Though the film is no longer a new release, we’d be remiss if we didn’t own to up to being a bit inspired by her school girl to worldly young woman transformation. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Blanche Devereaux

News of Rue McClanahan’s stroke — get well soon, Rue! — got me thinking about her “Golden Girls” character.

So what if she slipped Brandon some u4ea/euphoria? He needed to loosen up anyway. Her style was a welcomed departure from the babydoll dresses and floppy hats the other “90210″ girls rocked. And since grunge is back in a major way right now, we’re happy to take a few fashion cues from Emily. Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Happy Birthday, Elvis!

Today would have been Elvis Presley‘s 75th birthday if he had lived. Fans are celebrating the day with museum exhibits, concerts, movie marathons, and even the Cirque du Soleil tribute “Viva ELVIS.” But The Frisky hasn’t forgotten that Elvis is known as much for his style as he is for his music, so we’re going to dress like The King for at least one day, and you can too. Find out how after the jump. Keep reading »
