I was taught that anything I create has been inspired by something else, even I didn't mean it to be. I think this can also be said for fashion and styling. Magazines suggest that people should look to celebrities for inspiration, other people get it from art. The majority of people are inspired by other people. A good deal of my inspiration comes from the people I know and the blogs I follow.
Blogs are an endless source of inspiration for me, and not just the outfit posts. Their "inspiration" posts, their posts on their new favourite song, photos they took, the styling and design of the blog and how the person writes are all areas where inspiration can be found. And for the next five weeks I want to celebrate this.
For the next five Saturdays I am going to create an outfit that has been inspired by my favourite Irish blogs starting tomorrow with Blaubushka and then continuing on with Whisty, Blanaid, Stitches, Fabric and Soul and, She's in Vogue (maybe not in that order though.) The outfit will depict the vibe I get from the blog and the blogger. I hope they won't mind... I just want to show how blogs have inspired my own sense of style.
If nothing else it will be terribly flattering for said blogs (and hopefully not creepy...)
Inspiration not imitation...
