FBFF - Inspiration

top: thrifted, pants: walmart, shoes: cato

leopard flats add fabulousness to any outfit

gorgeous coral necklace - too heavy & uncomfortable on the neck - trying to re-work
This is what I wore a couple weeks ago for dinner with the in-laws. This is the Oscar de la Renta cashmere tee that I got at Savers for $4 a while back. It is deliciously soft and comfy. I recently bought this necklace on clearance because I love the coral color and the chunkiness of the beads. However I am going to have to re-work it because it is so heavy that it is uncomfortable. I re-did it last night, but am not satisfied so I'll be taking it apart and doing it again.

And now, on to this week's FBFF:

1. What magazines do you subscribe to? 
I have three subscriptions - InStyle, Lucky and People StyleWatch. I've subscribed to InStyle since around 2003 and Lucky around the same time. StyleWatch is a recent addition. I love the inspiration I get from them.

2. Do you watch any fashion TV shows?
We currently don't have cable, but I've always loved What Not to Wear. I also enjoyed the early seasons of Project Runway. And the recaps of the award shows are always fun. Not that you can get a great deal of inspiration for real life from formal events like the Oscars, but it is fun to watch anyway.

3. Beyond blogs, what websites do you frequent for fashion inspiration?
Ummm....there are fashion websites? Sorry, I guess I am a little behind the times. :) I do keep up with the websites for Lucky and InStyle, other than that it is just the blogs.

4. Advertisements play a huge role in forming public opinion about a product or brand… what ads do you like and why?
I love Michael Kors ads. If I had the money, I would totally buy anything from his ads. They are just stunning. I also enjoy the Jimmy Choo ads. This season's Banana Republic are pretty inspiring. Honestly I get as much inspiration from the ads in my magazines as the layouts.

5. Do you own any fashion books?
Hello, I am a nerd. I own books on everything I am interested in. Of course I own fashion books. The Lucky Shopping Manual, Glamour's Big Book of Do's & Don'ts, How to Walk in High Heels, Fashionista Files, City Chic, Effortless Style, Dress Your Best and so forth and so on. I do not have but want the newest Lucky and InStyle books. :) Like I said, I am a total nerd - just trying to be a stylish one. :)

Check out everyone else's responses at Modly Chic!
Happy Friday, ya'll.

  1. I want your flats and that orange necklace! I don't subscribe to magazines anymore, I was subscribed to Lucky but I wanted everything they would have everytime, so I'm kind of glad I don't get the magazine anymore. I don't have a TV so I' totally clueless about fashion shows, however I get my inspiration from other bloggers and from the things I see in vintage magazines and books. =D


Please let me know what you think! I love hearing from you.
