Friend Friday

Welcome to this week's edition of Friend Fridays, sponsored by ModlyChic.

1. Which celebrity (celebrities) do you look to for fashion inspiration?

Honestly, I don't really look to celebrities for inspiration. If I happen to see an outfit that strikes me, sure I will try to remember it and recreate it, but I don't really follow certain celebrities.
I'm more likely to look to my friends, neighbors, coworkers, strangers, and --most of all-- to YOU for inspiration!

2. When it comes to your own personal style, what inspires you?

Again, people I see around me are huge inspirations.
I also take in architecture, art, nature, anything really. When something strikes a chord with me, I emulate it. But in my own way...

3. How do you hope to inspire your readers?

I am by no means a fashion guru (or any other sort of guru, for that matter). But if someone comes to my blog, if they take anything away, I hope it is this:
Break out of your rut. Try something new. Don't be afraid of colors, styles, shapes, sizes. Try it once, and you just might like it. And if it doesn't work, that's ok too.

4. Outside the realm of fashion who/what inspires you?

Music. Dance. Theater. The arts have always moved me.
There are also a few people in my life who I find inspiring. Not only their style (and believe me, they've got style!), but they are the sort of people who just have it all together. I'm sure it's as much work for them as it is for everyone else, but they just make it all look so effortless.

5. And since Idol is ending… Which songs inspire you?

I find different kinds of inspiration from different kinda of songs.
Lately, I have really been enjoying disposable pop music for its dancability: Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha...
But I have a whole slew of favorite bands/groups/artists and favorite songs. They run the gamut, and I love them all for different reasons. I won't get into all of it here, but feel free to send me an email or leave a comment if you wanna talk music!


  1. Love Gaga! Really liked what you said about breaking out of your rut :) It happens to the best of us hehe

  2. I agree--I find so much inspiration through strangers. Since the weather has warmed up it's been like inspiration overload for me. I try to take mental snapshots of people...
