I’m realizing that one of the greatest things about being part of the “personal style” blogging community is the way we influence, inspire, and validate each other’s sartorial choices.
And really, that’s the point: our photos say “look at how I put this gorgeous pair of shoes with these particular jeans;” and our comments confirm “I love how you styled that pencil skirt with a basic tee!”
The expression says that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…but I think it goes further and deeper than that. It’s about sharing a mutual love of fashion, and the joy that looking at a really pretty, or “cool,” or uniquely styled look can bring. It’s about finding new and different ways of expressing ourselves and our personalities. It’s about experimenting!!
So today I’m admitting – nay, proudly declaring! – that this look was most definitely inspired by Atlantic-Pacific’s Blair Eadie (her blog is in my blog roll on the right, if you want to check her out.) I’ve put my own spin on it, naturally…but I hope I did you proud, Blair!!
