To each their own!

What I love about fashion the most is seeing how it is interpreted in our daily lives. While it is so easy to grab the latest issue of Vogue and treat our eyes with the fabulous editorials, nothing beats the feeling of looking at fashion right in front of your eyes worn by "mere mortals". While the runways send down models wearing a look with specific hair, makeup, and accessories, the way it is taken from runway to realway is what makes it even more interesting.

Specifically, I adore looking at pictures of Parisian streetstyle.Stalking photos on Garrance Dore is a guilty pleasure. Their "je ne sais quoi" layering, killer heels on cobbled stones, and effortless hair is what makes me truely believe that Paris is the fashion capital of the world. Every Parisian wears an item differently, not taking into consideration what any of the current trends are. They simply throw things on and voila, they are styled to kill!

What inspired this post is a small note left after a post of one of my favorite streetstyle blogger, "Style and the City". Kamel Lahmadi, the guy behind the lens and amazing style captures, attempts to send out a message through his blog. His dream is to "humanize" fashion by showing the world that the real world is also beautiful and that "real" people have what it takes to be stylish.

Love the idea. I hope streetstyle gets more press and attention and that we all begin to appreciate what is around us rather than only what we see in magazines.

Me too, I really appreciate the effort these photographers put into their sites. And these days, most of my inspiration comes from blogs and websites and streetstyle blogs rather than only magazines.
