I think hair and fashion go hand in hand...either one dictates the other. Whatever we are seeing on the runway is always a collaborative effort between a fashion designer, a makeup artist, and a hair stylist. I tend to reach toward fashion bloggers for inspiration before celebrities or even fashion designers, mainly because these bloggers live in a more realistic world. They are women just like us, who are making their wardrobe work on a budget we are either at, or aren't far away from.
Below are just a FEW of my faves, as my internet surfing is usually dedicated to browsing fashion or cooking blogs. I should definitely spend more time reading up on politics and current affairs, but everyone needs their veg time, right?
This is Emily, she's the first blogger I ever started follwing, sometimes I think this girl and I live parallel lives....check out her out: www.cupcakesandcashmere.com Also her "oh so chic" pants are by DolceVita and you can buy them at Urban Outfitters.
Another blogger I adore is Diya, she hails from Austin and has such an original look. This outfit in particular caught my eye. So much that I went and bought the skirt at American Apparel. She runs www.diyainherstilettos.com
Then there's Karla, my absolute blogcrush. I love how Karla is always mixing vintage finds from her local thriftstores...this particularly strikes a chord with me because of my highschool years. My Mom was starting out as a teacher and not able to provide the "latest" fashions for my preppy "cheerleadery" butt, so I was forced to hunt through used stuff in my spare time on the weekends. Thank God this was the case, it not only taught me to be original in my style but to know that you can do this on a budget. So finally here is the beautiful Karla, her awesome jeans are SeebyChloe, I was also able to score the beauties online for $66 bucks!!! Unfortunately for me, about 6 inches of denim need to be hemmed away, but that's okay. You can check out Karla at www.karlascloset.blogspot.com
Here's to a much needed weekend! Enjoy!
