Fashion inspiration.  We discover what influences our style and our creative bents in a variety of places.  I have been known to style different colors together because I saw them in a painting.  I really gain inspiration from so many places…art, other women, blogs, my own style icons, sometimes mannequins, fashion shows, and  even movies.

Like many of you, I also find inspiration on Pinterest and I work hard to place a lot of different looks on my own Pinterest boards for you to appreciate.  I have been asked, more than once, why I have so many young faces on my Pinterest boards.  Simply because, I believe inspiration for our own style has no age limit on it.  There are women younger than I, and women older than I am who have inspired me to style clothing together in different ways

I would encourage you, when you are looking at Pinterest boards, or Instagram, or even fashion magazines, to not look at the model’s age, but rather look at the clothing.  If you are attracted to the style, it might be for you.  Ask yourself, “If I wore that, what would it say to others about me?  What does it communicate?  Can I mimic it in a way that it fits who I am and what I want to communicate about me?  We are attracted to the way other’s dress for a reason, what can we learn about it.   Here are my favorite Pinterest Boards which I curate…but I warn you …you may see a variety of ages on these boards.
