I don’t know, ladies. Sometimes I feel like I am missing that all-important inner voice that tells a gal that just because it works on her, doesn’t mean it’ll work on you. Then again, I appreciate being a bit sartorially unpredictable, as I tend to easily to fall into the lap of a certain fashion uniform. However, I don’t think I am high fashion enough to be considered unpredictable in a good way most times. But I like trying new things. Though those “new things” may only be new to me.
Thus what got me thinking about Inspiration or Perspiration? Inspiration because as a person who would likes to put together her ensembles in unique yet pleasing manners, I am always curious to see who or what inspires another individual - whether it be another outfit, a pair of shoes, an image, a color. Perspiration because you're going to spend the day sweating over that sometimes things may just plain look better in your head than reality. Whatever it is, I'll pull something and attempt to recreate the look with a Lisa spin to it while making it appropriate for daily consumption.
My effort this week is quite literal, as I saw this outfit on Atlantic-Pacific, which made my mind twirl with potential, mostly because I have some of those pieces and blogger Blair pulled the look off with that whole casual “effortless chic” thing I am all-the-time grasping at straws at.
(I may or may not still be grasping because I think I took something that looked so laidback quirky/cute and made it a little too over-done.)
Where do you tend to find most of your sartorial inspiration? Do you find it mostly from seeing what others wear, or from paintings, colors, a specific item, etc.?
