Reading this article at Frocktalk.com I realized that not only is Lydia Deetz' style one of my top inspirations when it comes to putting outfits together, I draw from the entire movie Beetlejuice. Chris writes, "Every frame is presented as a mini work of art. Costumes too are more like installations by the final reel; Keaton’s ‘mallet arms’ getup for example is both absurd and awe inspiring." I have to completely agree. I saw some abstract wire earrings with black and white striped pyramids dangling from the ends at the thrift store and thought.. those are so Mrs. Deetz. We all know Lydia was goth, but what I particularly love about her style was how she worked that into her school uniform in the end.
When I'm inspired by her, I seem to gravitate towards a few particular items in my closet.
