If you have been following my blog, you know that I like to highlight some of my favorite places to go in the blogosphere in an Influence post. Today I have three to share with you!
1. Collage Vintage
Collage Vintage is a blog founded and curated by Sara Escudero since 2009. Sara is based in Madrid and has used her impeccable taste to grow her blog into a beautiful following. I personally love Sara’s way of mixing patterns and textures in an effortlessly chic way. I find myself always being drawn to bloggers that emulate an effortless look. I also want to point out that Sara includes helpful DIY posts about different hairstyles, nail art, and sewing in addition to her outfit posts. Check her out her blog, twitter, instagram, and her Facebook page.
2. Free Your Bliss
When I wake up in the morning, there is nothing I enjoy more than scrolling through uplifting inspiration and enjoying a cup of coffee. For me, uplifting means a mixture of fashion and engaging quotes. Free Your Bliss is a blog I frequently start my day with because it gets my creative juices flowing. Lauren, the girl behind this tumblr, provides the perfect mixture of good quotes, typography, and fashion for my taste. Check out her blog and find her on twitter.
Rebsharez is a blog founded last year and edited by Rebecca Ott. Rebecca has been in the blogosphere for years but she just recently joined wordpress as a place to share more content involving her personal style. I love looking at Reb’s blog because I enjoy her outfit posts but also her take on the happenings in the fashion world. Follow Reb’s blog, tumblr, twitter, and instagram.
I hope you guys enjoy perusing through these blogs. Feel free to send me links to which blogs inspire you!
Guys, I really loveeeeee clothes.
And I don’t mean in a cutesy, let’s-play-dress-up way.
I mean it in more of a I-have-a-problem-way.
In my measly attempt to put my “problem” to some sort of use, I am featuring my girl crushes (who can do some amazing things w my love, clothes) for this here Influence post.
Here is the lineup:
1. Brittany from thrifts and threads is based in Southern California and kills it in the #ootd department. She posts regularly (which is notable because I can’t seem to cultivate that habit) and makes everything she wears look effortless. She can transform a thrift store find into a runway look.
2. Carey from corks + caftans has been nominated for several awards for her blog she has been doing with her hubby since 2008ish, but the coolest was when she was recognized by Shopbop for her killer style. She is a RVA girl, so I am a bit partial, but the thing I love most about Carey is that not only is her style is amazing but she can write beautifully. You can check out her looks and intriguing thoughts on corks + caftans, follow her fan house renovation for home decor inspiration on Our Own Fan House, and find her on instagram-ing and ish here: @wodehizzle.
3. This last Influence picture this week is of Rachele from ZFB . Does this look knock your socks off or what? Her outfit featured here is self exclamatory as to why you should stalk (yes, I said it STALK) Rachele on ALL forms of social media: her blog, her twitter, and her instagram. I am very into the way Rachele puts things together.
P.S Don’t be shy in admitting to yourself and the rest of the universe that these ladies dress like mother trucking rock stars.
I am constantly perusing inspiration blogs and well, blogs in general in a borderline unhealthy way. To justify my obsession, I am going to highlight some of my favorite pictures I see weekly. All of these pictures are going to be subject to my weekly mood and I can’t promise that my mood will have any rhyme or reason. In my life long attempt to be just like Mary Kate & Ashley (jk – kinda), welcome to my first Influence* post! 1. This is a page out of Danielle LaPorte’s book I’ve mentioned in previous posts called “The Fire Starter Sessions.” This quote is quite the necessary reminder in my daily life to wear what I want, dream what I want, and to just be free of all that suffocating, overthinking, ego, mess. 2. Picture #2 and pictures #4-7 are from a blog I check daily, http://champagneculture.tumblr.com . For starters, the title on this blog is “Enough is Never Enough” and that sold me right from the start. On top of that, Jamie has beautiful posts and really gets my creative juices flowing. Check this lovely lady out on her blog or on instagram. 3. Picture #3 is of the style saint herself, Kate Moss, looking fabulous as ever. Every time I look at this, I can feel my fingers itching to get a grip on this AMAZING headdress. If you like what you see, I highly suggest you mosey on over to chanelbagsandcigarettedrags.com. You can also find the stylish Felicia on instagram, soundcloud, pinterest, and twitter. Give her a follow! Voilá, my first Influence post. If you guys have any particular books, blogs, places, things that influence you regularly, please feel free to share them with me. I would love to see where your inspiration comes from and maybe find some myself. xx, cath * Mary Kate & Ashley’s Book “Influence”
