Presenting some of my randomly inspiring pictures I have com across recently.
I feel so incomplete without my camera. I have gotten such great inspiration recently and it's hard to share that with others through words alone. I know that many of us are visual people which is why we love fashion in the first place.
Now for a little story time: The other day an older lady came into my work who shares my love of vintage-particularly vintage jewelry- and she returned the next day with a bunch of jewelry to give to me. While sorting through it with her she taught me so much about how to identify if something is real gold, sterling silver, or a genuine pearl and said she would return with books for me to read so that I could identify jewelry designers/era of creation. I have decided she is going to be my mentor-like my own Finding Forester story. When I get my camera back I will post pictures of her and the treasures she owns, it really is so refreshing to know that there are people out there who you share passions with and who are truly exited about sharing their experiences with others.
On the same note, secondskinstyle.blogspot.com mentioned me as inspiration on her blog (http://secondskinstyle.blogspot.com/2010/01/compare-and-contrast.html). She is a very inspiring person herself not only with fashion but as a genuinely caring individual. It is always such an honor to hear that people are inspired by what I do. The reason I got into blogging in the first place is to share my passion with others and create a place where people can come together and contribute to each others personal style inspiration without feeling insecure or intimidated by others, and are instead encouraged by each others individuality and creativity.
WOW that was a pretty serious post, tomorrow will be more light hearted, I've been feeling very introspective recently.
