Imitation - Sincerest Form of Flattery

One of my favorite things about following other style bloggers is that I am constantly inspired to remix things I own in ways that I haven't thought of yet.  A few weeks ago as I was cruising through my blog roll and I stopped on Jessica's blog - Surely Sonsy - where I noticed that she was sporting a fantastic outfit featuring neutrals from top to bottom.  The other thing I noticed is that I own very similar pieces but had never worn them together.

Is this a serious lack of creativity on my part?
Is this me giving a nod to Jessica's sense of style by nearly copying her look piece for piece?

Either way, I was really happy with how the look came together and will happily continue copying being inspired by my fellow style bloggers!

By the way... my curling iron decided to die half way through styling my hair.  I don't think it was incredibly noticeable but there were a few pieces that didn't get the curl love the others received.

I am now on the search to find a great 1inch curling iron... any suggestions?

  3. Don't you just love when that happens?! That's one reason I love looking at fashion blogs. I see a photo and think "Oh! I have similar pieces. I just never thought of putting them together." And then I can go and create a whole new outfit from things I already own. Yay!
    Just found your blog on Twitter, btw. Looking forward to viewing more and following. Would love to have you as a follower as well on the blog I recently started where I post thrifted outfits, recipes, cute houses and more. Maybe someday I'll work up the nerve to model.
    Hope you're having a great time in Cabo!
    ps. sorry for the previous deleted comment. Need some proofreading skills. lol

  4. OMG, I seriously need to get off this computer for the night. haha Correction...I didn't find you on Twitter....I found you by a photo and link on this site


Drop me a line! I would love to hear what you think of The Clothed Commuter.
