Finds and inspiration
It's unbelievable how often I find myself (make believe) shopping on my Fashiolista app for nice items. Best invention ever!
How it works
By following stylish 'fashiolistas' you will be able to see what they love. You can 'love' it yourself so you practically build a whole collection out of the items you loves - a great way to express your style and look for new items to put on your shopping list. You can also post your own fashionable 'finds' that others can like again.
It's a real fun way to get inspiration, trends and I get a lot of DIY inspiration from browsing my daily items on Fashiolista. I think, the best thing is that you don't always know the brand names, so it's all about the look of the item!
Here are some 'loves' on Fashiolista I've put right in my inspiration/DIY idea folder..
