I'm a thoroughly modern woman, who is by all accounts, more than a little old fashioned. At least when it comes in being inspired by dress. I LOVE "Old Timey." Which, if think about it, was the epitome of MODERN, back in its day. What I look at fondly with a nostalgic glance, was once the rude cut of progress with more than a whiff of future written all over it. 
I've been watching my boyfriend play BioShock Infinite- perfectly post-modern in its gorgeous graphics and content, but such a marvelous mix of steam-punk aesthetics with sharp socio-political observations that hang from its storyline like a great science fiction novel.
And possibly the tiniest bit of an inspiration for today's outfit.
