But then I got to thinking about what initially sparked my interest in wicker baskets and it hit me: Jane Birkin! A french model/actress/singer, she's effortlessly beautiful and one of my favorite style muses. I saw a photo of her years ago with this large wicker picnic basket as a purse on one arm and her husband on the other and I absolutely swooned. She is sexy, stylish, confident, talented and an endless source of inspiration. She dressed simply, but never looked plain - a balance I am continually trying to master.
Here are some of my favorite shots!
