Vintage Advantage

If you don’t already follow the blog Fashion Forestry, I suggest starting now! It has become a constant source of inspiration and joy for me over the last few months – I just can’t get enough of her unique point of view. Not only do I love looking at her outfits, but she shares her own inspirations, which in turn inspires me to think about fashion in a whole new way. Take this outfit, for example… who else could pull off a dress from the late ’20s with a hat from the ’60s and make it look so perfect and effortless?

What inspires you when you’re getting dressed every morning? Blogs, magazines, street style, something else?
