What's Your Inspiration?

I have photos both in a binder that I have torn from magazines and online photos that I save for fashion inspiration. I love to look through magazines and if I see something on television, I try and find the look to save online. Sometimes I will print out the online photos and put them on my inspiration board. But at times it's not the actual pictured item that's inspiring, it may be a concept or just something that speaks to me.

EVERYONE has an inspiration board, right? Or is that only in my mad little world?

My ever changing Inspiration Board

My Inspiration: Scarf Headband

Garance Dore

      I love this look the most, I have been searching for a wide scarf 
but I may have to find some fun fabric to recreate the look.

My way:
Please do not ask me why I insist on taking photos throwing up the peace sign, I do love it though. It's way easier for me to look goofy than "model-y."

In The Fashionista's Closet:

Yellow and blue printed scarf: Thrifted *I also bought a yellow and purple print one but I can't find it anywhere! I wanted to wear that one with this dress* Scarf is more long than wide, can also be worn as a belt
Dress: I purchased from a home shopping party about three years ago. A girl who has/had a boutique in Houston came to town with her things and had a fashion party. I love this dress, I normally pin it because as you can see, it can be revealing.
Earrings: I can't recall where I got them but I remember they were cheap and they had the same earrings at Arden B for like $15

So now, do tell, what is YOUR inspiration?

Nope, you are not the only one! Matter of fact, my blog header is a photo of one of my boards!

Love your blog and your style. Happy to have found you via "God's Favorite Shoes". That's my girl!

Will be a devoted reader! : )

Hey, Moni's my homie from the above comment!

I wanna be you when I grow up, I would feel silly with a scarf around my head because I already have big fat baby jaws!

I'm digging this look. Africana Wardrobe Diary blogger did a hairscarf style a few posts back that I love!

I usually get my ideas/inspiration from mags/blogs/movies/real people/my head...anywhere.

Hey Moni *waving* Any friend of GFS is a friend of mine! GFS, lol @baby jaws! I will check out AWD's post on headscarves, I like her too!

Sometimes I can't even follow a movie because I am enamored with the fashion. I want to see "It's Complicated" again because I loved the decor from that movie! And the drape styling that they did for Meryl Streep was great!

I want to do head scarves SO badly...I'm scared though. Maybe if I find a print fun enough, I can experiment. =D

And inspiration is everywhere, but since I'm constantly on the internets, most of it comes from there.
