Get Inspired!

Photobucket

After reading a post on La Belle Vie I was motivated to make good use out of my huge stash of fashion magazines and create an inspiration board of my own. I've always kept a composition book of my favorite outfits, make-up tips, and editorials but it was fun to do a giant poster for my wall. This particular one is everything that's inspiring me lately: tropical beaches, bright colors, slouchy shirts, and nature inspired prints.

It's a great rainy day/boring day activity. Check out some of these for more inspiration!

Do you have an inspiration board or book? If so, do share!

I've become obsessed with inspiration boards, as well. Just the other day, however, I made something a little different: a shrine to the Balenciaga City. I used pictures of different celebrities with their Balenciaga City bags. It actually turned out quite nicely. :)

This seems like such a cool idea, but knowing me I'd probably get tired of the project halfway through and end up with shredded mags and a lot of frustration. :-)

I've given you an award! Check out my blog for details.

What a cool idea! I used to keep a folder, but maybe I should start making a board too!

Ooh yay! I love these types of things! I used to make posters of collages from my magazines like crazy. Now I have a photo album type thing of inspiration and I'm working on a binder to put all my magazine clippings, etc out! Cute!

I love inspiration boards as well!
I never seem to have the time or patience to make one or start one! Did you use a cork board and thumb tacks?
