In this week’s blog post, we wanted to share some of our other favorite blogs. “In the old days” inspiration came from traveling, trips to the museum, endless hours at Barnes & Nobles reading magazines, travel guides, and non-fiction. Today, we have the internet. Finding inspiration takes no more than a simple click. Truth be told, the first hour of my day day starts with breakfast and blogging.
Whether you’re a hair stylist, fashion designer or marketing manager, it’s essential that we stay up to date on the latest trends. Outdatedness is easily recognizable by your clients, and worst-case scenario, could potentially cost you customers and clients. In a digital, ever-changing, and fast-paced world, it’s imperative to stay in the loop, not just in fashion, but with typography, photography, pop culture, music, travel, and art. In this post, I wanted to share some of my favorite blogs for inspiration (of course, I am not including the obvious destinations such as Vogue, Fashionista, or WWD.)
For art, photography, and pop-culture references: These three blogs are more about imagery and less about text content. It’s a visual bombardment of references from fine art to street art. Each of these individual bloggers has a unique point of view, but they all serenely ride the difficult line between commercial and avant-garde. You will find images from Yayoi Kusama to vintage Dior in one breath and photographs of Greece and architectural blueprints in another.
For Fashion: The below blogs are some of the cooler, more indie sites. Indie sites usually provide information on the big brands such as Chanel, but also with smaller new designers such as Alanui from Italy
An insider’s trick for fresh new content and inspiration: Use the big publications such as Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire and go to their sister sites from other countries such as Vogue UK or Elle France. If you really want to read the articles, google translate will translate any webpage for you.
Everything else essential: The following blogs are not limited to one genre, but overall pop culture. You can find content from cinema, literature, music, and politics.
While the internet can be overwhelming with angry people venting and social media shenanigans, like any technology, it also is a wellspring for finding beauty and inspiration if you seek to find it. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a high-profile executive, we can all use a mental escape, and the internet provides an unlimited and powerful resource to find information. These are just a few of my favorites, but take a ride down Alice’s rabbit hole. You never know what kind of Wonderlands you may find.
