When jesse.anne.o wrote about her lack of enthusiasm regarding the upcoming fashion weeks, it hit me that it has been a while since I have felt a really special tingle going through catwalk photos. Sure, I buy my Vogue Collections magazine every season, and yes, there remains a handful of designers whose work I am interested in. Having said that, it is striking how much less inspiration I get from high-end fashion these days. I used to be really interested in "real" fashion. I was rather snobbish when it came to my fashion magazines, and February and September were marked in my diary because the fashion weeks fed my desire for something new and beautiful twice a year. It has been a quick change. I still know what is considered fashionable, but the inspiration for what I really wear comes from elsewhere. Eyeliah's wonderful week of wardrobe_remix inspired outfits is a symbolic shout-out for what I am talking about. A lot of people don't need high-end fashion to be inspired. We, regular people, are enough. We are out there to inspire each other.
P.S. Thank you so much for your recent comments, and welcome to all of you who have found your way here via Already Pretty! I have been doing an awful job replying (or not replying) to comments lately. I solemnly promise to get my act together!
