muse: pippi longstocking

i was reminded this week (by this spritely fashionista) that i've been meaning to do a post about one of my all-time fave style icons: pippi longstocking. i love her so much that i actually have a tattoo of her! (sorry i can't show it to you now.) i mean really, who amongst us HASN'T ever dressed as pippi for halloween? though she was first created in 1944, her spunk, irreverant sense of style, herculean strength, disdain for adults, and complete lack of self-consciousness, (not to mention her very cool pets) all make her one of the best role models i know of to this very day. and i'm pretty sure she made her own clothes...
