Fashion bloggers are considered (by many) to be a connection between the fashion runways and regular people. They are considered to translate current trends into a style that is more accessible and easier to understand to an everyday person. They may be an old news and source inspiration to many women and men out there, but there are also many people who are just getting around to following bloggers and using them as source of inspiration for what to wear. One comment that I often hear is that it’s hard to keep up with a blogger and buy everything they wear. Cost adds up very quickly. But one thing I love about my favorite fashion bloggers is the ability to re-mix their wardrobe time and time again, and not just show off new items. I personally get inspired by many things when it comes to putting together an outfit: from other bloggers, magazines, house and decorating magazines, or just some random pictures, things I see on the street, architecture or nature. Inspiration does not mean you copy an exact look. It is supposed to give you an idea about how to work with what you have in your closet and make a similar outfit. For me, sometimes, an outfit that I see on another blogger may inspire me for its exact items of clothing, but other times, it may be just the combination of colors in the outfit, mix of prints, idea of mixing specific pieces of clothing together, that maybe I had not thought about. Some of my favorite bloggers are very tall, and yet I am not. Some have a very different body shape than me so I cannot copy their outfit completely. I have to always keep in mind my body shape, skin colour, hair colour, life style, etc to ensure I am comfortable in what I am wearing. If it does not suit my body, I will not be able to carry it out. The outfit may be wearing me or I may look very uncomfortable in it.
So this week, I thought I would give you couple of examples of outfits that inspired me and how I translated them into my style and used existing pieces in my wardrobe to create them.
Today’s outfit inspiration is from a picture of a partial outfit I saw on Instagram from a very famous blogger Sincerely, Jules. What I loved about it is the idea embroidered clutch and white pheasant top.   I also loved the idea of that world traveler style mixed with my favorite summer item, cut-off denim shorts. I did not want to go searching for a similar shirt, when I already owned a dress that had the same feel to it. You may have already seen me wear it in this SashaDoll Fashion Closet post. So I just added a little boho style belt to cinch in the waist and shorten the length of the dress, and voila, a shirt. I also already own an embroidered bag, which I used before as a clutch as well. I just fold it in half and tuck the handles inside. And  , who doesn't own a pair of denim shorts, right?

So below is a picture of my inspiration and the outfit I created from it. Hopefully, for those of you who find it hard to translate outfits of your favorite bloggers into what fits you best, this little article will help. I will have one more post this week to show you a different way to interpreting an inspiration. Ciao!

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.
Ciao!

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…
