I'm really excited to introduce you all to my new weekly feature "where in the world wednesday," especially since I'll need your help doing it! If you've been following my blog for a while now, you'll know I'm constantly inspired by my travels around the world-- by panoramic vistas, by street corners, by slices of life and location captured on film. Different cities I visit suggest not only a new way of looking at life, but also a unique style of dressing. Laid-back and casual in Cali isn't always appropriate in the see-and-be-seen vibe of metropolitan NYC, for example.
So...what this means is that I want you to tell me the city, country, or area that inspires you (in any capacity, not just style-wise). Been on a recent trip to Africa? Does your family hail from Kiev? Have a random fascination with Genghis Khan's Mongolia? I want to hear it!
But wait, there's more... I'm a massive history buff and categorize most clothing by era (as in the 1950s meets Edwardian at Marc Jacobs), so I also want that time period that captures your fancy. And yes, it can be modern or future or ancient--no restrictions. I've been obsessed with 1917 Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution, with post-war Paris in the 20s, and turn-of-the-century Gilded Age New York, to name just a few. Maybe post-apocalyptic Idaho floats your boat, I don't judge! :)
Just tell me the when and the where, I'll give you the who and create a contemporary outfit from your global inspiration. It doesn't require anything fancy on your part: a comment left on a blog post, a tweet, an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or a message on my Facebook page. I'll post an example inspiration set later today to give you an idea of what I'm thinking. Looking forward to hearing from you! x0
