Gilmore Girls...Bunheads...and Creative Style!

I’ve mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Gilmore Girls;
 no show has better dialogue as far as I am concerned.  So, my husband was the one who told me about the new show on ABC’s Family Network called BUNHEADS.  The show is written Amy Sherman-Palladino of Gilmore Girls fame, and actually old faces from the original show appear in BUNHEADS every now and then…like Kirk, one of my favorite characters!
I found myself placing the show on my DVR list, not so much for the plot of the show, but to see what Kelly Bishop would wear.  In Gilmore Girls, she was the wealthy, socialite grandmother (Emily Gilmore) and in Bunheads, she is the Bohemian, flighty ballet teacher (Fanny Flowers).  I really like Fanny Flowers comfortable, easy, yet creative style.

While I love the professional, classic dress as I modeled on Tuesday and have a need for those looks, I also love this easier, freer style like I am wearing today.  Fanny gave me some great ideas for fall.  Bunheads has completed its first season and is scheduled to return during the winter.  But, for now, Flowers character has provided plenty of inspiration to keep me thinking for awhile.
