Put On Your "Inspiration Spectacles"

In the last year I have become a big fan! I view the world through my "inspiration spectacles", always searching for illumination - and they have become a go-to resource.

I am talking about ELLE magazine! With last year's transition into Joe Zee world (the Creative Director) this magazine has started to lose it's pages every month.. meaning I rip out editorial after editorial to add to my inspiration board.

With my new found love for the US version of the magazine, I also discovered a love for the international publications, 29 international publications to be exact!

Being a loyal fan and perusing International Elle, I stumbled onto Elle Korea (yes, I also love Vogue Girl Korea) and discovered they have their own AMAZING version of Instant Outfit!

I was salivating at what they came up with for a plain white shirt! The ideas seemed endless...

Here's one set of pieces to work with and to get your brain going:




Just when you think you are on stimulus overload.. they add even more.. and a whole new take.... it's overflowing...

International fashion mags are GREAT--we completely agree. Such inspiration. Such abandon. We're continuously obsessed with Jille and other Japanese mags and LULA, but will definitely check out the Korean mags.

Stumbled across your blog today. SOTTO loves u!

I would just add one product that unfortunately I don't see here.
it's the most beautiful vintage belt I have ever seen in my life.
It is original from the First World War!
I see it at: www.beryll.com

What brand are the glasses frames (directly above the brown shoe) on the last slide? I must have them! I went to the ELLE Korea website and I can't read Korean - what was I thinking?! Please help!

Unfortunately, I can't read Korean either and can't help you out in finding the brand of glasses. Sorry 'bout that!
