Looks from Life - Vintage Hairspray Cans

I love perusing Flickr to get inspired... today's inspiration? Hairspray.

Hairspray, really?

Well, sure, the actual hairspray product itself may be a little random, and some people may have simply passed this photograph by; but the color palette is what immediately jumped out at me! It screamed spring, so I decided to go on a little hunt of spring wardrobe items inspired by these colors...

I wouldn't combine these items into a single outfit, but I wanted to pick out a few pieces that incorporated the photograph's colors. I love, love, love the dress at the top, especially when accented with the little belt! And I just had to add a yellow umbrella to accompany the red trench. You never know when you'll need one with these rainy Seattle springs!
