I am one of those people who can put together a very basic outfit that I love – so, cute cardigan, adorable top, great jeans and shoes – but what it comes to accessorizing I’m awful. So i do look at inspiration pictures for that. 

What works for me in sense of finding outfits is making sure that I have some good statement pieces. Some statement cardigans can get you a long way… but I also make sure I have standout tops and skirts or dresses. That way you can mix or match the more basic pieces so that you have quite a few outfits.

Honestly? I pick a celebrity or two and see what they are wearing. It is not because I think they have a better fashion sense than me, most make some big fashion no-nos or are in sweats in public. But what they DO have are great stylists, shopping buddies, and $$ to put together great looks.

I LOVE Victoria Beckham on her casual days. I mean I love her everyday look, but as a college student it isn’t quite feasible for me to wear a skin-tight dress to class 😉

I get inspiration from a lot of places – fashion blogs and a handful of celebs, mostly. But then again, I am a fashion blogger, so I spend a ton of time researching trends, celebrity fashion, etc.

I’m the opposite of lilyfaith, though. I tend to wear very, very basic pieces, but then wear funky accessories to make them exciting. For example, today I’m wearing a taupe shirtdress over black leggings with simple black flats, but then I’m wearing a big leopard-print scarf to add interest. I spend a lot more money on accessories, shoes and bags than I do on clothes.

I really like fashion blogs.  It’s nice to see what “real” people are wearing and how they put it together.  Fashion magazines are great, but everything is way out of my budget and sometimes a bit over the top.

I’m not good with accessories, so I like to wear a lot of color and prints instead.

My daily outfit is some combination of vintage dress/cardigan/heels.

I trust two things-

1) My Boyfriend or Best Friend has great taste in clothes for me. If he picks it out, it usually fits me perfectly and gets tons of compliments.

2) Go AGAINST my instinct. I tend to go for basic colors, t-shirts (even those I think are fancy enough to wear to work), flip flops. So, to revamp and up the anty, I go against my instincts… try out stores like Filenes Basement and Marshall’s first so it’s not that much of a financial commitment to find out  your new look!

Who What Wear does a decent break down of celebrity outfits converted into affordable items. I also like InStyle magazine, they usually have cute ideas. I wouldn’t go buy the exact outfit, but they kind of clue you in on how to combine different pieces.

I have a few statement necklaces that are very “me” — bought them vintage years ago and I still get random compliments on them. So most of my clothes are basics which I jazz up with accessories.

That’s similar to what my site is – celebrity looks for under $100, and non-celeb looks as well.

And now I’ll shut up about it since I probably shouldn’t be talking about it at all.
