My Three Muses Pillow

Awhile ago, the lovely Erika of Small Shop Studio teamed up with Michelle Dwight Designs to giveaway a custom 'Three Muses' pillow to one lucky reader. Imagine my glee when I found out that I had won! It's here and it's good - in fact, I couldn't be happier with it! It's just so much fun and a great conversation piece.
When deciding on my muses, I tried to choose three women who represent different points of inspiration for me.

The first is Carrie Bradshaw. Although fictional, Carrie is a strong, independent women, a successful writer, and one hell of a dresser. She is my fashion muse, reminding me to always dress for myself - not a man, not the trends, just me. And to always, always, be a good friend.
 "The most exciting, challenging, and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you YOU love, well, that's just fabulous" - Carrie Bradshaw
 
'They say nothing lasts forever; dreams change, trends come and go, but friendships never go out of style.'

 Kelly Wearstler is an obvious choice - my design muse. She is a visionary whose interior spaces read as stunning works of art. I always look to her work when I feel I am playing it too safe, when I need that extra push to be bold and fearless with my creativity.
"...there is genius in boldness. Fortunately...it is not a genius that is out of reach. All it requires is a willingness to make mistakes and to experiment, with a few considerations for the laws of attraction" -Kelly Wearstler

Last but not least, Audrey Hepburn, who I have always upheld as this sort of  standard of grace and class that I try to hold myself to each day. She was a Unicef ambassador and had such a positive outlook on life. She is also my eyebrow muse...if there is such a thing.
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles" - Audrey Hepburn

So now it's your turn! Comment below and let me know who your 3 muses would be.

I need one of these! I am a huge classic film fan so maybe I would go with some of my screen idols...but I would choose their last names Hepburn (kate and audrey) Bardot and Davis (Bette. Or i could do my three fashion icons which would be Kate, KATE and kate. (hepburn, moss and middleton) But then I would leave out Jackie O'. It is hard to narrow down. Also, if you love Ms. Audrey, you should check out this post I wrote about one of her best films and her fashion in the film, http://www.babygiraffeblog.blogspot.com/2013/10/film-fashion-friday-audrey-hepburn-and.html

How cute! I love this, and I love your muses. I think I would probably pick the same ones. Obsessed with Kelly Wearstler.
