featured & flattered.

25 January 2009

So I’m kinda sorta in love with Just Jr’s Blog de Mode; ever since I found it in the later months of 2008, I’ve spent quite some pouring over his impeccably made collages, each one a beautiful source of inspiration – j’adore, j’adore, j’adore! I never thought that his work could get any better, perfect as they were already, until his 2009 Guide. Simply. Amazing. Period. An impeccable (my favorite word ever!) collection of inspiration, from fashion to blogs, to Obama! I have it bookmarked, so when I am at a lack of creativity, or eye candy, for that matter, I can always turn to the page for instant inspiration.

Seeing La Couturier under his list of “The Top Selection of Blogs of the Moment” described as an “amazing inspiring blog by an inspiring fille!“, made me ridiculously happy – I’m so honored & thankful to be included in this list! Thank you, Jaime!

And here’s one of my favorite collages of the 2009 Guide, under “Most Inspiring”:


I love that story. 🙂

    Thank you for the comment on the shoes! I love your blog, it’s so inspirational and your posts are very well thought out (I strive to achieve that but I’m not one of many words). I really liked your list of basics, I think that every single item is something we all should have, and then a few added extras to make it unique. Have a lovely night!
