In Praise of Individual Style
I classify myself as a hardcore “Inspiration Cultivist” . . . . I see in pictures and I live for imagery that sparks creativity and corresponding squeals of delight (from myself that is…) As an avid reader of fashion magazines and style blogs, I find there is much to be inspired by. However, nothing inspires me and gets my fashion juices bubbling more, than a style mix of vintage, designer, and high street fashion. In my book, this is a delicious recipe for individual style!
When I first began exploring the blogosphere, I stumbled upon Karla Deras of Karla’s Closet and have been blessed with style inspiration, and frankly, a resulting style crush ever since. Karla is a free spirit who embraces her curves and lets her moods dictate her daily wardrobe. Her philosophy is a direct reflection of my own style philosophy . . . . in an interview with Stylelikeu Karla says, “I definitely don’t think you have to dress a certain way to be different, but you should dress and wear what you feel good in even if it is different.” I echo her sentiments. I want to encourage you all to embrace individuality. Don’t look to the masses for approval. Rather, look to your own likes and fancies and hold them as the authority to please.
We are all uniquely and wonderfully made. The way I see it, that mere fact automatically catapults you to collector’s item status!!! As my company mission statement says; I encourage you to foster individuality and invite others to celebrate theirs!
Visit Karla @ her blog www.karlascloset.blogspot.com and be inspired!!!
