The fashion world may be up to its lace-adorned collars in up-and-coming blogs, but that doesn’t mean there is a drought of innovation. Allow me to help you through the flood of fashion bloggers and introduce you to three individuals who are sure to inspire.
Ivania’s creative prowess and eye for quality amazes me. The girl is a self-professed thrifting nut, yet somehow all of her outfit seem so high-end. I’m sure it’s a combination of things—the confidence she exudes, her styling, etc… But most importantly, I think that she sees a piece of clothing for its potential, instead of at face value. Just look at her DIY projects and you’ll be inspired to start digging through what you thought was a closet full of junk and hacking things to bits and piecing them back together! For instance, her two-toned button shirt, or her spine back dress, or a new way to display her wardrobe! Lastly, any girl that can wear neon orange, burgundy and a black lip, is A-okay in my book!
Nicola is a daily must-read for me. Its not often I am impressed by someone’s blog layout and design. But that is the first thing I noticed about Nicola’s blog. Her site is clean, graphic and efficient—which meant I wasn’t surprised to find out she comes from a graphic design background. Her background even translates in her outfits. She’s a very smart dresser, minimal, but impacting. Also, I usually skip over bloggers fantasy outfit collages, but Nicola puts together ones that I can NEVER skip over. She also has a hand in designing and revamping many of the things she wears. Meaning, I’m enthusiastically anticipating the opening of her blog shop!
Stefanie could certainly give some high-end models a run for their money. She takes risks when it comes to posing, and she does it with such conviction that its totally believable. (Tyra and Miss J may want to consider having her on the show.) And the clothes she wears! She’s a living, breathing, walking editorial. Stefanie and Moustache Man (her silent partner, and photographer) create some killer photos, their composition is impeccable. Unfortunately, I had to crop the photos to fit the college. So you must jump over to the site to check out the pictures in all their glory! Stefanie does such an incredible job filling her frame. Avant-garde style for everyday? Stefanie is doing it, and doing it well!
Three truly inspirational ladies, who I can guarantee are making something incredible of their lives. Inspiration is a lot more than a pretty face and an eye for dressing (which Ivania, Nicola and Stefanie certainly have). It’s someone that is aspirational and motivated, someone worthy of admiration. So please take the time to admire their blogs, but then get your butts out there and work towards being someone others can find inspirational also!
