Friend Friday: Inspiration

1. Which celebrity (celebrities) do you look to for fashion inspiration?
There are several.  But lately I've really been appreciating Nicole Richie's style.  She just makes it look so easy.  She's always perfectly layered and accessorized.  She's classy and boho and trendy and vintagey all at the same time, it's amazing.  I also love her witty, sassy personality.  She's the whole package.

2. When it comes to your own personal style, what inspires you?
Bloggers!  Discovering the style-blogging community has changed my life, but not just in the ways of fashion.  At one point, I had prayed that God would lead me outside the walls of my church and workplace to find others with similar goals and interests as me - before I even knew what a blog WAS.  I've had some real revelations about my own style through reading others' opinions and experiences that I may have never come to otherwise.

3. How do you hope to inspire your readers?
My purpose is to communicate that personal style doesn't have to be complicated or expensive.  It's fun and exploratory and even affordable (!!!).  All it takes is a little imagination and resourcefulness.

4. Outside the realm of fashion who/what inspires you?
Do-ers inspire me.  Real-life people (women) who don't just talk about their dreams, but actually make them happen.  For example:
Ashley: joined the Peace Corps.
Gussy: quit her day job to pursue her handmade business.
Meghan:  turned a passion for vintage into a Mighty Swell boutique.
Cinda:  founded the 3/50 Project.
Just to name a few.

5. And since Idol is ending… Which songs inspire you?
Songs?  On Idol?  I like Haley (most improved) and Casey (he's fearless...and sexy).
How 'bout bands/artists that inspire me....  I have a wide range of 'likes'.
In general:  Sara Groves. The Ting TingsThe Killers.  Michael Jackson. 80's Madonna.
Most recently:  Florence and the Machine
Locally:  Ashleigh Still, and the great music born out of my church - I'm so blessed!

Happy Birthday FBFF!

aww I do wish you'd said hi at the opera event! I, admittedly, arrived a tad late and didn't have much time to "mingle" before heading on over to the show. It would've been lovely to meet you :)
