I started this blog to document my interests in fashion, but as time went on, I realized I didn't like fashion as much as I thought I did. Or perhaps I didn't follow it the conventional way. I realized that I hated looking at magazines, editorials, models, runway shows, and everything fashion week related. So I asked myself, "What actually inspires me?" I'm definitely influenced by everyone around me, but when I'm online and I'm deliberately searching for inspiration, I look to product shots by stores such as La Garconne, Totokaelo, Ssense, and Reborn. In other words, I online shop. What I love about these stores is that they style their clothing as if they were official lookbooks. I guess what puts me off is all the frou frou stuff that comes with fashion. I like looking at clothes in its most simplest form, which is viewing each piece by itself without elaborate backgrounds or scenes. An example of this would be the above look styled by La Garconne, which features the Acne Dana Dress.

Even though it's summer and warm weather calls for lighter colors, I'm still wanting to wear black 24/7. This Piped Soft Blazer by ASOS is a great way to wear black, but still keep cool at the same time. I'm not sure why I haven't purchased it yet, but I have a feeling it'll be happening soon. Besides, I need to get more blazers if I want to channel my inner Janie Cai.
