Inspiration

 When I was in high school I would carry this inspiration scrap book around everywhere. I would make collages of designers, styles or aesthetics I was attracted to. It was a good reference for me whenever I needed ideas or just wanted to save images I enjoyed. It is funny how my style has remained true to my 14 year old self, and the designers I admired then, I still look up to now, including Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Prada. I really need to start making a book or even a small moleskin like this to keep with me whenever I need inspiration or find something I like. I also have a huge file on my desktop of images I find along my internet journeys that I pull up for reference but I would prefer a tactile version as well. I also think tools like tumblr and Pinterest are good outlets for cataloging inspiration images and sharing them with friends. How do you prefer to be inspired? Would you favor a tactile journal, or take the ciber route?

  1. This is inspirational, it's like Polyvore in a notebook, or those beautiful inspiration boards in Elle Collections. Love it!

  2. I'd love to keep an inspiration journal! I may just do this soon because your photos have inspired me. I also kept a folder on my desktop of photos I came by that I loved... but then Pinterest happened and the obsession grew :D

  3. Oh, this reminds me so much of the collages I used to create in my teen years, I love, love, love inspiration journals :) I also keep lots of folders on my computer but I rarely have the chance to check them out properly. I use Pinterest of course, it's like the best thing ever now, and I enjoy browsing through various Tumblr's . It calms me down although it's time consuming ^_^

    The idea of creating a new inspiration journal crossed my mind this summer, but I felt bad ripping the pages of the magazines now. Maybe I'll cave in eventually and do it all again :)
