FBFF: What Inspires Me

1. Which celebrity (celebrities) do you look to for fashion inspiration? 
That's tough. I don't know that I look up to celebrities anymore for fashion inspiration. I definitely get better inspiration from bloggers. I also get it from the runways. I always love Marc Jacobs.

2. When it comes to your own personal style, what inspires you? 
As mentioned above, runways and bloggers and still magazines even. I rip out inspirational images from magazines and hang them on an "inspiration" wall. I'm also inspired by my moods. If I'm feeling pretty, I'll throw on a cardigan with flats. If I'm feeling punk, I'll throw on my bandana and combat boots. My style never stays the same although jeans and comfort are always factored in.

3. How do you hope to inspire your readers? 
I hope to inspire them to speak their opinions and be proud of what makes them an individual. Everyone is unique and we should celebrate our differences. I'm not a fan of conformity.

4. Outside the realm of fashion who/what inspires you? 
Where I live: Manhattan. Living in New York it's hard not to be inspired. The architecture, the stylish women on the streets, the different languages being spoken. I'm always amazed how these women can walk these uneven streets in gorgeous heels. Bravo!

5. And since Idol is ending… Which songs inspire you? 
This also I guess depends on my mood. Adele's new cd 21 has been inspiring me lately. I'm a big fan of 80's music, such as Journey.

What inspires you?

  1. i love Adele too, she's really something special. I love to hear other bloggers' critique on trends and styles.

  2. im also really diggin on adele. i think i could play "rolling in the deep" on repeat for weeks and not tire of it.
    and i also a HUGE fan of 80s music -- my hubby + i had our friends' band play our wedding, and the majority of what they play is 80s and 90s music. it was perfect!

  3. HELLLLOOOOO! Journey is what it's at! I love the mention of them, and of course Adele is brilliant!

    I love how you mentioned other bloggers inspired you too, that is how i feel too.. what a great community of inspiration we have at our fingertips.
    Fellow FBFFer, matters of merrymaking

  4. Good answers. Agree about New York, I don't even live there but I find it inspirational. Can't even imagine how much fun it must be to be there! If I was single I would be on the first plane tomorrow....

  5. marc jacobs = <3 Adele is incredible, I love her talent! she's gorgeous too

    80s baby right here too, love that time! journey is awesome sauce

  6. @Sophie- Yes she is. I love reading bloggers critiques as well :)

    @EvaNadine- haha I would totally have 80s music at my wedding!

    @Bekah- YEAH JOURNEY!

    @afashionablelifeforme- haha well hope you can visit NYC soon :)

    @socialitedreams- Hooray 80s babies!

  7. I love Adele! Her strong voice inspires many. I agree, if you live in Manhattan, you're so fortunate to be inspired all the time. I always admire the women who can wear those sky-high heels & walk up & down steep hills. (that's a true skill) I usually carry a pair of city-flats in my bag! haha! -xo

  8. I too appreciate hi-heel walking in the city! It must be so wonderful to live in the East Coast Fashion Center - Manhattan. I can't even imagine how inspirational it must be!!
    Happy Friend Friday!!

  9. I get most of my inspiration from other bloggers, too! And I have the inspiration pages out of mags habit; I fill sticky photo albums with the images. Love your blog's name! Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway!

  10. Adele is amazing! I just discovered her because my daughter was playing her song on the ipod. Her voice is one of the best I've ever heard.

  11. Okay I am making you my new BFF! Anyone who mention's Journey and Adele all in one post is a friend of mine!

    I also have an inspiration board as well. I love waking up every morning and having it be the first thing I see.

  12. Great reading this. I agree: I get much better inspiration from bloggers as well.
    I'm going to say something cheesy, but true, aboutwhat inspires me: people when I'm out and about. I love seeing new and exciting things everywhere.

  13. @FashionTales- haha I always carry an extra pair of shoes, I can't go all day in heels!

    @Yvonne- Thanks for reading!

    @Debbie- I'm not as organized about my magazine clippings haha thanks for stopping by!

    @For Those About to Shop- Her voice will give you chills :) Listening now...

    @lifeanditsotherdrugs- lmao! Thank you :)

    @Sherin- Aw glad you enjoyed reading :) Yes, people are always inspiring. London is pretty fab for fashion viewing as well!

  14. You know, quite a few people have mentioned that they get more inspiration from other bloggers than celebrities. I think that's so cool and I also totally relate to that!

    Have a great weekend!


  15. Isn't that new Adele CD just incredible?!? I listen to it constantly in my car (that and the new Britney CD, shhhh...)

    I am super jealous you live in Manhattan-what an incredible pulse that city has. And the fashion! To die for...again, so jealous (in the best of ways).

    I too have an inspiration wall of magazine rip-outs that I constantly refer to for ideas. My husband thinks it's a bit obsessive, but I don't care-ha!


  16. @Krys- Hooray for bloggers!

    @Nicole- It is! haha I don't have the Britney cd but I do like "Till the World Ends" ;) Oh my family says I'm hoarder because of all the magazines I keep or NYT Style sections so I understand :)

  17. I love getting my inspiration from other bloggers too. The celebs just don't seem real.


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
