Fashion as Art

Everyday we are bombarded with images, conversations, articles and ads. How much of that really sticks? How many times have you been in the middle of a conversation and forgotten where you read or how you saw that thing you are trying to describe? This used to happen to me all the time! I would see amazing things and forget where I saw it, so I started an "Inspiration Folder". This is not new. Lots of people have inspiration folders, boards, collages, Pintrest! Pintrest was basically built on the idea of inspiration, but my inspiration folder is different.
First, it just kind of happened and it is a physical thing. Yes, physical in the sense that I am "old school" and still love magazines and the printed word.
I wanted to share my inspiration folder though and the only way to do that is to make it digital so here I am. People have inspiration folders for lots of different things, but mine is all about fashion. I love fashion! Plain and simple I think it's art. It's the first thing people see about you and sometimes it's the only thing they see. Everyone has a style, some good, some not as much, but either way the way you dress, the things you accessorize with, that is all saying something about you. It's what you picked, its you expressing yourself and that is art! I am starting this blog to share with you my love and my art. Love it, hate it ...be inspired!

1st Piece of Inspiration- Oscar de la renta gown from  Fall 2012.
This gown is gorgeous!  It nostalgically reminds me of the little girl that lives inside me who dreamt of being a princess! The best part though has to be it's color! It isn't white, it's not pink it is awesome! Amazing job Oscar!
