Where do you all get your fashion inspiration these days? I know it sounds terribly ironic given that I have a blog myself, but to be honest I don’t necessarily get my inspiration from that many blogs these days. And almost never from magazines, because I am not a Texas oil magnate. Instead I periodically stalk a few people, and almost always on Instagram. Actually (and this is how fuddy duddy I am) my favorite way to check out my stalkees, style wise, is to access the IG pages on my laptop, so that I can quickly scroll through a bunch of photos.

I have learned that even if you admire someone’s style, they may not post all the photos you’d like of their day to day outfits (which is what I’m most interested in) on IG – a great example is Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert, and I follow her to check out her fabulous life, but its not necessarily the best resource for outfits. Here are some of my favorite outfit posters  – please, please, share yours! I would love more inspiration!

Reina Hoshi – I love this girl even though I don’t know what she does. She has 350K followers though so is she famous in Japan? Or is she famous because she has a great Instagram? I’m not sure.

Also a lot of her stuff is only from Japanese stores. But a lot of her outfits are easily emulated with simple pieces, which I love. Continue Reading
