Daytime Fashion Muse: Amelia Earhart
Of all the stylish women who emerged in the 20th century, Amelia Earhart fulfills my vision of aesthetic perfection like no one else. She seems to have shared my healthy respect for high quality leather and a tomboyish love of menswear-inspired cuts. Looks like Kansas may have been a greater source of style than many think -- Amelia and Osa Johnson both emerged from the wheat (as did Porter and I!).
My mom bought me a pair of Ralph Lauren jodhpurs when I was in 6th grade. I actually wore them to school a couple times until the backside seam tore apart precariously. I hope to find Porter a pair to wear on her camel rides through the Moroccan desert this February.
