inspiration- other bloggers

a year before jessie and i started rara.avis i was already following at least fifteen different fashion blogs. it was, and always will be, so inspirational for me to see how other fashion bloggers wear, style, and reinvent their every day clothing to suit their personalities and moods.

only a few months ago though did i get around to creating a "things to try" folder on my desktop. currently it is filled with pictures of some of my favorite bloggers whose outfits and style I covet. hopefully they won't mind if I share some images with you...

this first look is from melissa over at sex and coffee. i have these same socks and have been meaning to try this combination of black, gray, and green forever.


i have an orange skirt almost just like jane's from sea of shoes which i've been wanting to try with an athletic sweater.


the_kitten over at picked pics wears these men's pants perfectly. i need to buy a pair like this.


lulu of chictopia fame has put together mustard, black, and white so well. can i turn my mustard colored socks into such a good look i wonder?


i've been following louise since her first apperance on the sartorialist when she was captured wearing those great gray socks and green shoes. This picture motivated me to buy my first tube of red lipstick as well as wear my grandfather's pocket watch as a necklace.

Jane from Sea of Shoes always makes me melt in envy--oh to be fifteen and have the money for such shoes!
Also, Louise is a semi-idol for me...

Melissa said...

aww, i'm so flattered! especially since i'm a big, blubbering fan of the rest of your picks, haha. :)

Jessie- totally, right? I want to read new posts from her every day. Sorry H and I didn't stop by last night... he wasn't well after dinner so we went straight home :(

TCH- YES! So young and so much money for lovely clothes- am totally jealous. Louise is def idol worthy :)

Melissa- I love your style just as much as theirs! Chic, effortless, young, and sexy :)

Every girl should have a tube of red lipstick in her cosmetic bag. It's a staple for me and one of my trademarks.
