Happy Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but I have quite the week ahead of me and losing myself in some pretty pictures each day is a MUST in order to preserve my sanity. So enjoy the pretty that I have planned for you this week!
Diane looking tres chic in contrasting colors and patterns. The dress in interesting and eye-catching but it was those shoes that stole the show in my opinion.
Can you imagine anything more adorable or more Alexa? A basic, well-worn tee paired with a gold sequined mini skirt. Perfection! I just wish that I could see her shoes...
Zoe Saldana looking fresh-faced and ready for Spring in an adorable coral Alexis Mabille crocheted dress. I love the color and especially the gorgeous bronze accessories that she paired with it.
Miranda Kerr stunned in a printed coat and great Louis Vuitton bag - Proving yet again that she's one of the girls to watch when it comes to street style.
I love the combination of prints here - the black & white geometric mixed with a Spring floral. I also love those shoes & need that jacket desperately!
Natalia Vodianova was the picture of understated French elegance during Paris Fashion Week. I love the zipper details on the textured dress and the idea of wearing a turtleneck underneath.
Magdalena Frackowiak's flat boots here were just too cute not to share. Love, love, love this casual & fun, but 100% chic look.
Heather Marks walked Joe Fresh @ World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto with Meghan Collison & Alanna Zimmer. Colorful & toasty warm!
Interested in seeing what the top models are wearing these days as they relax post-fashion week? Modelinia has photos of everyone from Hanne Gaby Odiele and Elettra Wiedemann to Victoria’s Secret Angels Doutzen Kroes and Candice Swanepoel.
Are you a Hunger Games devotee? Well here’s a little red carpet action to wet your appetites…
The Hunger Games Los Angeles Premiere Red Carpet:
Leslie Mann blew all the kids out of the water in a Monique Lhuillier jumpsuit. Chic and fun - j'adore!
Great cocktail dress! Its fun and eye-catching but the high-neck keeps it from being too too.
Odette Annable looked sleek and adorable in her simple green dress. Perfect standout look for a red carpet.
The Hunger Games London Premiere Red Carpet:
Elizabeth Banks looked stunning in this yellow Bill Blass confection. A great, head-turning color for a blonde.
I like that this isn't your standard young male on the red carpet look... It's interesting and different, a nice change of pace - Way to go Josh!
The Hunger Games Germany Premiere Red Carpet:
This custom Elie Saab number suited Miss Banks to a T. She's setting these HG red carpets on fire!
The three-piece grey suit is quite sharp but the highlight of this look is the striped shirt & checkered tie combo. Brilliant!

Fashion isn’t just about what you wear, what goes on your body. It’s truly an expression of yourself that extends far beyond your clothes.
“Fashion is everything. Art, music, furniture design, graphic design, hair, makeup, architecture, the way cars look – all those things go together to make a moment in time.” – Tom Ford
And just as fashion isn’t limited to the cloth that we wrap ourselves in, inspiration can also be found in many forms.
I began clipping pictures from magazines as a pre-adolescent, not so much fashion photos, just pictures that caught my eye, things that I found eye-catching or memorable or mesmerizing.
As I became interested in fashion however, my clipping habits became more focused. And while I don’t confine myself to photographs of clothing and accessories, I’ve found that my love of fashion gives this activity more direction and purpose. I’ve found that even without context, pictures can serve a creative function.
They excite. They encourage. They inspire.
The beauty and artistry captured by a photographer can be moving, regardless of the medium. Advertisements, promotional materials, editorials, art, home decor…
I’ve found that by keeping these images available to myself I can stay out of a fashion rut. They provide new ideas and inspiration, get my creative juices flowing, and motivate me to grow and evolved. I highly recommend creating and maintaining a Look Book, a collection of images that make you smile, that invigorate you, that make you push your boundaries.
Whether it’s a physical book filled with clippings like mine are, or Boards on Pinterest, this is a great creative and inspirational outlet. Keeping pictures of looks that you like, styles that call to you, photos that take your breath away, can all be great tools to keep your approach to fashion fresh and interesting.
What’s your favorite way to get inspired?
