Friday Five: Fashion Inspiration

How was everyones Valentines!?

Most importantly, who’s hitting up the discounted Valentines candy today!? You know where you can find us after work today ๐Ÿ˜… Another thing I love picking up from the store is magazines. They inspire me with outfit ideas, makeup looks and overall provides intriguing stories and tips. So much so, when I was in high school, I had an entire 12 ft long wall completelyย plasteredย with magazine pages and cutouts. It’s no wonder I went on to study fashion at University!

So, today we wanted to talk about things that inspire us when it comes to fashion. Magazines are clearly published in the hopes of inspiring us all (and purchase featured items), but there’s so many other factors that come into play in regards to inspiration. I think another big one is your surrounding. Do you live in a bustling metropolis? Or a small town? Are you inspired by the vibes and people of the city to dress a certain way? It can be the difference between wearing cowboy boots and a pair of heels. Or maybe it’s nature that inspires you. Rugged mountains, calm waters, blooming flowers….it can affect whether you choose to wear a billowing dress or a buffalo plaid button-down. Music can inspire what you pick out to wear or buy. Indie music can influence you to buy/wear bell bottom jeans where as rock music can influence you to buy/wear combat boots. Or maybe its tv shows or movies that inspire you? Watching This Is Us has me inspired to incorporate 70’s pieces into my wardrobe. Other days I’m wanting to dress like the modern-day 50’s because of Riverdale.

As you can see, there’s a number of factors than inspire the way you dress and view fashion! What inspires you? Pinterest? Instagram? Your neighbors? Your state? We’re curious, so leave a comment below ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘ก
