Monday inspiration

Came across this while cleaning over the weekend and wanted to share…

When I was planning for the launch of The Re-Stylist, I constructed a completely old school inspiration board over a Justin Bieber calendar. (The calendar was a gag gift from my brother. He knows I love the Biebs.)

And yes, I still do literal cut-and-paste collage-style inspiration boards. It helps!

The quotes in the top left are from one of my very first clients. Then there’s Charlotte Rampling looking fabulous with a crazy hat and gloves. Next to her is a quote from Cecilia Dean in V Magazine that says, “I’m a thousand times more confident than I was ten or twenty years ago.” I love that.

The middle pics are also from V Magazine–their Who Cares About Age issue, which I found so inspiring. And then, of course, MObama.

Inspiration boards are an amazing tool for outfit-building, too. I always cut out magazine pics or print online photos of  ideas, colors, etc. that appeal to me, and keep them on a bulletin board near my desk. I have a client who keeps some pics right inside her closet. She looks to them as reminders to try new things when getting dressed. So smart!
