I don't think anyone out there can say their style is uninfluenced and completely original.
Be it the media, celebrities, blogs, friends or eras, we all take inspiration from things - even the most mundane - continuously, and diffuse them into our own personal style; something that ultimately becomes a mash-up of all the things we love.
And were it not for this bargain of a head-topper reminding me so profusely of Florence Welsch and her appendaged trilby, I doubt I would even have tried it on.
But try I did, and whilst half hoping it would turn me into the elegant lady herself, I knew that even if it looked a right mess, the purchase that would happen in about ten minutes time was already a done-deal, if not for its Florenceness then for its measly £5 price tag.
The only trouble is that felt turns out to be an all-out fluff, dirt and dust magnet, and so I've been walking around with what has basically become a cleverly disguised duster on my head without even realising.
I'd like to think that even my subconscious isn't taking style inspiration from household items...
but to be honest, I wouldn't put it past it.
