Richard Simmons

Casie's look:

I know this is the lamest representation of Richard Simmons ever worn by a person representing Richard Simmons.  I had a kindergarten graduation event this morning and after about five minutes of bumping into the walls of my closet room (yes, I have a closet room) in my underpants, I gave up and went for something that included bling.  While this shirt has sequins and I think that technically Richard prefers a bedazzled look, I am going with it.

shirt- Target
jeans- Simply Vera, Koh'ls

Jilli's look:


Official business aside...

Inspired today by Richard Simmons' enthusiasm and joy for life, I am wearing bright cheerful purple head to toe and a big smile! A bit of an inspiration stretch but can't bring me down today. :)

Grace Kelly

Kim's look:

I thought this neckline was Grace Kelly inspired. I'm also in skinny jeans - which I'm thing she would have worn if she wore jeans!

Casie's look:

*please forgive the flash....
You know, most of the pictures of Grace Kelly are just of her face.  Guess that speaks to her beauty.  I just went kind of generically demure today.  Ballet flats, full skirt, pearls...

Jilli's look:

Grace Kelly-inspired collared shirt (Theory), cardigan (Banana Republic), and scarf (Gap).

Monday challenge (really for Monday this time...):   Richard Simmons

Oh Dale, you are such a great cheerleader with your chant of, "GO FLASH.  GO!  GO FLASH.  GO!"

*and the pendant is very Vultan-riffic....

Can you guess my Flash Gordon inspiration? One of Mark's favorite movies!  VULTAN- YES!!!!!

60's Girl Group

Kim's look:

"Then He Kissed Me" - by the Crystals!!

Crystal necklace, bracelet, and earrings from Silpada. Microphone courtesy of Jillian! (And it has crystals on it too!)

Jilli's look:

60's girl band... Where are my backup singers?

Dress: Macy's, jewelry: Stella & Dot

Casie's look:

I think my favorite girl group song is Tonight's the Night by the Shirelles.  Makes me think of Dirty Dancing.  I went looking for girl group album covers yesterday and came across this one with the black dresses and the red necklaces.  I think the shape of this outfit comes pretty close- minus the print on top.  I also made sure to create bouffant hair.  Like you do.....DOH!  I shoulda worn my red shoes.

Casie's look:

 *like the hand crafted sticky note power ball in my hand?

IRON MAN!  Red with golden accessories.

Lisa is the hulk.  Is she trying to save or devour the tiny child in the swing?

Art Inspriation- Michael Whelan

 My little Ray Bradbury shout out....

This is a piece of art by Michael Whelan.  It depicts a story from Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles (my favorite story from The Martian Chronicles- BTW).  I think it is fitting that we celebrate Mr. Bradbury's own artistic contribution this week.

If you did not get a chance to check out the link where I found this painting yesterday, here you go. 

Please read the Ray Bradbury commentary about Mars.  This was a man with a fascinating mind.

Kim's look:

Martian glamor cannot be denied.  
Rust colored skinny pants by else
Blue sparkle top from a cool shop in Topanga
Silver sparky jewelry by Stella and Dot and Silpada.

Casie's look:

*for the mask
*for the martinan landscape
*my best Martian pose

Ignore the clothing.  Think of it as a blank canvas upon which my accessories do the talking.  The orangy, tortoise shell beads are for the martian landscape in the painting.  My bracelet is the mask.  This story is so haunting- about a Martian woman who dreams of an astronaut coming to Mars.  I did a project on this story in my A.P. English class in high school.  I made my interpretation of the mask.  It basically involved glitter and more glitter.  Mmmmmm.....glitter.

shirt and necklace- Target
pants- handed down from Ali
bracelet- gift from MIL
Monday challenge:   
The Avengers (which I have not seen, so there will be copious Google imaging)
