If you're new to the blog, here's the idea behind Marvelous Monday:
"Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!"
There are currently 5 of us participating in the challenges, so make sure to check out the other ladies' looks! I've posted links at the bottom of this entry for your perusal.
I was torn between two choices for who I wanted to draw influence from. In one corner was Katniss Everdeen, the extremely kick-ass hero from The Hunger Games trilogy. In the other corner was Julia Houston from the TV show, Smash. In the end I went with Julia! Her wardrobe on the show has always appealed to me. Her standard look is usually soft, flowy fabrics, some tall booties, some earth-toned jewelry, all topped off with a scarf and her little nerd glasses. In a way I feel like I'm almost cheating-- she's really only about three degrees west from the way I dress normally.

But it'd be remiss of me if I didn't point out that it's not just this character's artistic fashion sense that appeals to me. Her character on the show is a strong, stubborn, beautiful lady writer. She loves music and is passionate about her art. And she's not afraid to take risks! Love her.
