As a big 80's fan, one source of inspiration for me is the movie Flashdance. Besides the awesome soundtrack, I'm just drawn to the dancing routines. I guess it has something to do with the fact that I spent most of my teenage years dancing. Ever since I had this haircut, the Jennifer Beals in me has become more and more evident and I couldn't help but have a Flashdance "photoshoot" the first time I visited New York. That was when I stayed in a hostel that had this cool warehouse vibe, perfect for dancing. The character Alex was even my Halloween costume this year. Leg warmers included.
