It seemed like a good idea to use my inaugural post as a way of introducing myself . . however – after several failed attempts I’ve given up. Mostly because they all sounded like dodgy personal ads or lonely heart entries in a really rubbish newspaper! In fact the only thing that was missing was, ‘likes to take long walks in the rain’ and GSOH’ . . Not good.
As such, I’ve decided to dive right in and talk about my obsession du jour – STREET STYLE. I was bored to tears with pictures if celebrities dressed up by their stylist and looking like clones – case in point: if I see one more snap of Nicole Richie in a maxi dress . . . snore much?! So I began to look elsewhere for inspiration. What really started the whole thing was a tip from my own personal style icon (Shout out to Lucius!!) – he forwarded me this link: www.thesartorialist.blogspot.com. Real people, real style and beautifully photographed. I. Was. Hooked!
That one link opened up a world of street style sites, I’ve never been so inspired. I am now totally, overwhelmingly, addicted! It has changed my outlook, my wardrobe and has sparked a dormant creativity! As yet I have not appeared on one of these sites . . . but a girl can dream.
Here are a few of my favourites – Happy Surfing!
