The Sincerest Form of Flattery?
If you had a Mama like mine (who likes to quote quotes) you know it is
that I’m talking about.
‘Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery’ is a quote by Charles Caleb Colton, meaning that imitating [or copying] someone or something is an absolute form of paying them a compliment.
Today I am complimenting two bloggers. I have not asked for their permission to talk about them, but I can’t imagine that they would turn away any prompt to send visitors to their blogs.
First up is J.
She is the author of J’s Everyday Fashion and the first fashion blogger I began following.
Back in 2012 J would find inspiration in a picture of a well dressed model and then she would pull items from her own closet to create the same or a similar outfit, without spending money to buy the advertised article(s) of clothing. Though her blog has changed just a bit, she is still very creative. She describes her blog as “not a personal style blog, but the study of one girl’s closet”.
Click here for an example of her “peachy keen” outfit and the picture that provided the inspiration.
This inspiration outfit belongs to a blogger named Shauna, author of ChicOver50.
My cropping of this photo is in no way meant to be offensive, this is how I save outfits to my stylebook app.
You’ll be able to find the full picture on her site.
