Bogart & Bacall, December is Hollywood Glam!

Few Hollywood romances are as legendary as Bogie and Bacall’s.

  
 Lauren Bacall was just 19 when she met a married Humphrey Bogart on the set of 1944’s “To Have And Have Not,” but their 25-year age gap and Bogart’s marital status didn’t seem to stop a romance from forming. It only took a few months for Bogart to get a divorce and pop the question to the young blonde actress. The two were married on May 21, 1945 and stayed blissfully wed until his untimely death in 1957.
Humphrey always had an eye for style. His mysterious persona and perfectly groomed attire made him the perfect package. His style seemed effortless and simple, yet showed all the details a man like him would require. A leading man on screen and off screen, Bogart was never seen out of formal wear. Always wearing head-wear and holding a cigar that seemed to burn forever. He exuded elegance in every aspect of his life. Taking inspiration from this iconic man is a sure fire way to get noticed.
So what did Bogie, a living silver screen icon, see in Bacall? Aside from her wit, talent and that gaze, the lady had great style. Sharp 1940s suiting and pristine, structured tailoring lent the ingenue an air of maturity beyond her years.
So in the words of the great Humphrey Bogart, “Here’s looking at you, kid.” We'll see you in December for Hollywood Glam!

Crystalline

We start out our third week of of the Björk inspired round for the InspirationSL Event featuring Wicked and Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. Wicked has created a fun dress that perhaps even Björk herself would want to add to her closet! The shoes by Lindy are vibrant and colorful.. much like  Björk herself.  We can learn a lot from Björk's songs, as they have messages about how she views life. For example, the lyrics to "Crystalline" talk about the process of crystallization in minerals and rocks but taking a more personal point of view, relating the growth of a crystal structure with the growth of relationships in people's hearts.
This short and sassy dress by Wicked comes in the five standard mesh sizes. There are seven colors available. Choose between four colors for the zipper on the hud provided. 
These fun and colorful shoes by Lindy are made for Slink and Maitreya High Feet.

Vibrant Hunter

We start out our second week of the Björk inspired round for the InspirationSL Event featuring B Barbie Style and Dulce Secrets. B Barbie Style has created a perky youthful ponytail.. much like Björk herself... who has remained vibrant and youthful throughout the decades. Dulce Secrets designed lovely eyeshadow, named Hunter.. in reference to the song of the same name by Björk. The lyrics of "Hunter" explore the pressure Björk felt to write music after realizing the workforce that depended on her, following the success she found as a solo artist with her previous studio albums.

The Different Faces Of Bjork

OHAI!

So in just under 2 weeks time (18th Sep)  InspirationSL will open its doors to a world of everything Bjorky! But why did we choose Bjork you ask? 
Over the years we have seen the many faces of Bjork pushing the stylistic boundaries of fashion to the max! Not only have we seen Bjork in many different styles but she has set the standards for other music icons such as Gwen Stefani in the 90s, RiRi even went for the green lippy and Bantu knots but much more recent was Jessie J in the UK The Voice. They have all grasped at inspiration for looks and music from none other than Bjork. 

This lady has one way or another has always been seen and heard weather it was worn by another celeb or even the famous swan dress that was featured in the film "White Chicks" we have all seen aspects of her career. 

Watch this space for more information on the event!
