A different taste in my mouth/ I take time.

So, the watch brand Storm London has sent out a few questions for bloggers to answer, and I must say they tickle my history-nerd fancy. Question the first:

1. When was the time you felt most inspired by fashion?
The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art collection database is like fashion porn, and definitely a go-to when I'm feeling less than inspired. In particular the Met collection has helped turn my interest in Art Deco geometric styles into a full-blown obsession. Probably why my eyes were first drawn to this baby on the Storm London website:

2. When was the time you were proudest of your outfit or style?

Honestly, it's all been downhill from here.

3. What is the Time in Fashion you would most like to return to?
You know, I think we have it pretty good right about now. When else in history have humans had the same opportunity (and inclination) to pillage fashions of the past in order to create new styles? I know proper fashion people bemoan the recycling of 20th century decades for new trends, but personally I love wearing a 1920s drop-waisted dress one day, and a 1950s cinch-belt the next.
But if have to give a non-pussy answer, I'll say I'd go back to the days when the Indian Head test card was displayed on television off-hours.

I mention it because the design was the first thing I thought of when I saw this watch:

Very sexy.
