I so love trends

I so love following trends . I just dived into my closet today and picked up two items I already had in the two of the most trendy colors of this summer. If I wasn't aware of the 'trends' I wouldn't have been able to put together this outfit .Actually there is nothing wrong with trends as long as I use them to re invent my own wardrobe and not as an excuse to consume.
Lately, I noticed two things the first is that because my wardrobe is well stocked (if that's ever possible) I can fake trendy in no time and second that while looking the outfits at trendy magazines I don't search for what I have and what not but I try to capture the vibe of the outfit, the colors the fabrics the styling and re arrange the whole thing to fit what I already have.
Most of the times I come up with nice outfits and this way I make sure I remix everything I own. It takes some practice to really study the photos and boards on magazines to be able to get the essence of a trend or outfit and adjust it to my wardrobe but it's worth it.
This way taking inspiration from magazines  is much more fun.
How do you use magazines ( do you even use them?) to get inspiration to remix your outfits?


  1. I love your belt...great job! I get inspiration from so many places...but magazines and blogs are where I find it the most! You look great....

  2. I love these colors, trendy or otherwise -- and yes, I often mark pages of Lucky Magazine for outfit and shopping inspiration. Then I either scan them into the computer, or post the page up by my closet.

  3. I love the bright colors here...and I agree that it's on trend. I will often tear looks from magazines and then begin to hunt the bits and pieces I need in the thrifts. Only rarely, can I put a look together from what is already in my closet.

  4. This is a great look, and you always inspire me to search my closet more! I agree that trends ought not be an excuse to over-consume.
