style her own: billie's tenue du jour

i've fallen hard for billie & was really nervous to even ask, but she agreed & here's the proof! & i'm sure a pest with all of my constant favoritism of her every single outfits from her tenue du jour (aka out fit of the day) , she describes as   "A slideshow of outfits I put together, trying to be as creative as possible, without spending much money. Most of the pieces if not all have been thrifted for very cheap." i'm particularly fond of her links to photos or paintings that helped to inspire certain attire for her. only wish i could post every outfit ever! as well her set enttiled nuns & virgins is spectactular , & all of her sets. &  all photos c/o billie martineau
