You're the inspiration...

Inspire: To fill or affect with a specified feeling or thought. To animate or impel. To influence or communicate. 
This is certainly what happens to me when I look at certain blogs...in fact, I'm almost always influenced by blogs these days, that I don't even remember a time without style/inspiration blogs.  I know that whenever I go into my closet, I'm always astonished by how eclectic it is...what can I say, I love trying new things. But I know subconsciously, that the reason my style is the way it is, is because of some of the fashion blogs I follow religiously. I was thinking about it the other day, and these 6 style bloggers, definitely became a prominent influence in my life since I first started reading them...

My first love in the fashion blogging world, Rumi Neely changed how I viewed fashion. I look up to her, because she always took a risk no matter how big or small. In a blink of an eye, she made me realize you CAN take chances and still look beautiful even while getting groceries. She also does the "boho" style better than anyone I know...next to Nicole Richie of course ;p

Whenever I think of going to Paris and my dream wardrobe for the trip, I think-"What would Louis wear?" She epitomizes Parisian Chic. And with her cascading red hair and bookish readers, it's easy to see how fast people fall for her effortless style. And her pictures...goodness, I don't know what kind of camera she uses, but I have yet to see a bad picture of her.

Liz Cherkasova...first of all, I love saying her name. It rolls right off the tongue. When I first saw this girl, I fell hard. She was one of those girls, I wanted (and still do) to be friends with, because she just seems so cool. Cool but without trying. And amazingly sweet. Her style too, is incredibly eclectic-going from romantic to edgy. But she just pulls everything off. Not to mention, look at that face! So incredibly gorgeous.

When I want to put a smile on my face after a bad day, I hop on over to Emily's blog. Not only is she an LA girl like yours truly, but she is also very down-to-earth, which is super rare to find in the blogging world or in LA for that matter. In fact, the reason why her blog makes me smile, is by how fun it is...she puts up recipes, and hair how-to's, and makeup tips, but also has an AMAZING closet! She just makes everything look so accessible, and breezy.

I've posted about Caroline before...but I had to include her in the list, because I think her style is the most similar to mine. I love how edgy she looks every time she goes out, whether she's getting coffee or doing a photoshoot. She just looks so put together all the time, and she has an incredible collection of Balenciaga bags. I think she has like 15 of them! Lucky girl!

And last but certainly not least, Karla Deras. Her wardrobe is the one I envy most...because well, she has the greatest mix of high and low. Most of her stuff is vintage, but she makes it look modern. And she is the only one who makes me think about going back to my short hair. But the best part about Karla? She's ballsy! She doesn't care what anybody thinks, and that's part of the reason why I think her and Rumi's blogs have been so successful all these years. And that massive shoe collection, of course. :)
