As you can see, my inspiration board has changed since I last posted about it! I tend to tack up the most recent notes I've received in the mail. These are some I've gotten in the past month. There is also a magazine pull-out of my favorite actress, Sophia Bush!
Speaking of inspiration, I've gotten some really amazing books lately that I wanted to share with you. I have a membership to Barnes & Noble and am there at least once a week. I rarely leave empty-handed. As I've mentioned, both of my parents are in the fashion industry and constantly in and out of stores. My dad loves to buy me books and has discovered lately that Urban Outfitters often has a great selection. Here's what he picked up for me on his last trip there.
Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak: by Writers Famous and Obscure is beautifully crafted. As a writer myself, one of my mantras is "Say as much as you can in as few words as possible". I love, love, love the idea behind this compilation.
I also got Not Quite What I Was Planning: by Writers Famous and Obscure. Love the cover!
Sister Salty, Sister Sweet is a memoir of two sisters who are as different as night and day. Hm, sounds like my life! :)
Also, I read Bringing Home The Birkin and it was a fabulous, fast, and fun read. I recommend it to any fashionista with a great sense of humor!
