    Nothing gives us that gotta-have-it oomph of inspiration quite like a dreamy, color-soaked lookbook.

She was such a strong, talented woman who endured so much, and expressed it through her art and style. BellJar's rich patterns, and my lovely new apartment lent themselves to paying an homage to her as an idol."

    We are eyeing quite a few of these pretty, patterned pieces. Pick your favorites from the after the jump.
