I draw a lot of inspiration from other sewing blogs & fashion blogs, and pattern sites of course! I do read fashion mags once in a while, but if I’m looking for on-line inspiration, here are a few of my faves. By the way, I like sites where you can zoom in on the details, (Saks, Net a Porter) versus the flash heavy style sites which are more look-book oriented.
Saks Fifth Avenue – High end fashion designers, what’s great is you can search by designer
Nordstroms – Similar to Sak’s – what I like is they carry shoes up to a 12
Net a Porter – They bill themselves as the “premier on-line luxury fashion destination”. Check out the ‘new arrivals’ & the ‘sold out’s section. Then think of the opposite of that shopper. The opposite is me!
Anthropologie – Funky coolness. And they have a store in Toronto!
Club Monaco – Annoying flash site, but chic modern clothing
Joe Fresh – A fun, funky, inexpensive Canadian line from the Mimran Group (Club Monaco) The clothing line is featured in grocery stores (Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstores). Kind of H&M
Marni – euro boho chicness. Again, slightly annoying flash site
Banana Republic – ’nuff said
Where does your inspiration come from?
