Inspired by: Independent Spirit

I love the Free People blog. And I loved this piece on maintaining your personal style, especially  through your wedding. Wedding dresses are only white because some old woman who just happened to be Queen of England wore a white dress once. There is no symbolism. It's not a purity/virginity statement. It's just tradition. Being a bride doesn't mean giving up who you are to fit into that perfect Barbie image. Be you. Wear flowers in your messy hair and glitter on your skirt. Stand up for yourself. That is something that I struggle with. My mom kindly refers to me as "an avoider."
So, feeling inspired by the independent spirit that the Free People style embodies, I took an afternoon to do a couple drawings inspired by this photo shoot.
