Isabella Blow.

To the lady who inspired me to always be...
ME.

Isabella Blow, God bless her.
Not the prettiest thing in the world but the boldest lady that ever was.
She's the inspiration behind my love for hats and the guts it takes to make risks in fashion.












If you don't know about her, read about her!
Rest in peace dear Isabella, your legend will definitely live on.

I adore Isabella Blow. I was devistated when she came to her untimely ending. She was the definition of a unique individual who marched to the beat of her own drummer. And her hats! Her Hats! One of my lifetime goals is to own a Philip Treacy hat, and to think she must of had an entire closet devoted to him and his hats. *sigh*

Thanks doll,
The Glamorous Housewife

Her story is so sad. She launched the careers of so many great designers (McQueen and Treacy being a few) and she sort of died alone and forgotten. She is a true style inspiration, you're right.

She was a genius.

I've never heard of her, but I think she's beautiful! Her obvious confidence and quirkiness (not the mention those sick hats) make me think she could easily rival Gisele or Kate Moss =)
I'll definitely have to read up on her.

PS saw your link to the wedding and it was so cute!
