My favorite Website for Fashion Inspiration...

One of my favorite blogs I like to visit regularly for inspiration is Stlyelikeu.  This site along with Advanced Style is brilliant for checking out how other people relate to style and life and everything in between.  So I was checking out Stylikeu and watched this video with Preston Davis.  I love when style and philosophy merge and after watching his video I must agree with him that:

1. We are all connected.

2. We are only with competition with ourselves.
3. We always have a choice.
4. We direct our reality by our thoughts.
5. There's no need to be attached to things, because you can always get another one.

Preston Davis is an actor, model, and surf instructor based in Los Angeles. Ladd Denim jeans, jacket from Rose Bowl Flea Market, vintage hat.

I also loved the wordly style and fashion of DJ Rashida Robinson. And her message to remember to be Grateful!!

Fashion Inspiration from Advanced Style.....

So, in a past life I prided myself in being a creatively, stylish fashionista.  I loved shopping and dressing to chic perfection.  But, alas, in recent years my penchant for shopping and stylish dressing has greatly diminished.  In fact, my current style is rather utilitarian and drab... (as you may have noticed in a few behind the scenes videos.)

But this is all going to change!  Thanks to a fabulous blog from Ari Seth Cohen, Advanced Style, which showcases seasoned fashionistas, I am newly inspired to bring back the fashion and style of my past! Check out the following video and you'll see what I mean.  You'll also notice  Ilona Royce Smithkin from one of my past posts among the lovely ladies....  


So I'm going to start with some tips from Debra ( below).....Wish me luck!  Thanks a million, Ari, for such a great blog!!  Advanced Style
