People often ask me where I come up with ideas for outfits.
My top three sources for style inspiration are:
1) Fashion blogs
I have a confession. I used to be a blog stalker. Before I had Glitterary Girl, I had a ton of blogs bookmarked in my favorites folder. Now that I have my own blog, I connect thorough Google Friend Connect, Twitter, or Facebook and my social media pages tell me when they update. Time saved... splendid!
I haven't consciously ever copied an entire outfit, but I've certainly made note on fashion blogs of things I like. I love when another blogger will show how to do an updated version of a classic piece. For example, I saw someone (sorry gals, I forget who!) pairing a chambray shirt with printed bottoms, which inspired me to put this look together.
I've always had an obsession with magazines. I shudder to think how much I've spent on them in the course of my life so far. I was reading Seventeen at age eleven, and I remember Cameron Diaz when she was a model, not an actress.
I have a rule: I don't hoard magazines (anymore.... I used to have back issues in towering piles). I read them, earmark pages I want to go back to, then shelve them for about a month. After that, I attack them with scissors and clip out the things I want to keep.... outfits, make-up and hair ideas, work out tips, etc. I tape them into this.

I'm a relative newbie to this social phenomenon, and I admit, I have more desserts pinned than clothes. You can find clothes I lust over here and some recent outfits posts of my own here.
Where do you get your style inspiration from?
I've got a super-busy weekend planned with multiple weddings, so I had my toes did.
