I need to stop e-stalking Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly. But I can't help it. She's gorgeous, and I love her style.One of the first posts of hers that I wanted to replicate was this one. I couldn't believe the top was from Forever21, but naturally it had sold out and I was SOL.
The other day I was browsing tops at F21, and lo and behold the top was back in stock! And for the price of mere beans. Unfortunately it's sold out again. :)
I strongly encourage you to seek inspiration when it comes to what you wear and how you wear it. I glean inspiration from bloggers or store sites or catalogs, but it is rare these days that I will out and out copy a look.
I will say, I think it's important to be strong in your own style and fashion choices, but as long as you don't neglect who you are, you can use others to inspire you to be better. I have checked out many blogs, but I only visit a handful regularly.
What or who inspires you? Do you copy looks? If so, do you still feel true to yourself? Is that even important?
