Something To Ponder...

It has been a while - but I am back and thought I would start the week with something a little deep. I wrote this whilst I was working for ASOS and it was and will remain a favourite blog of mine. Read, enjoy and ponder...

A copycat is defined as 'a person or thing that copies, imitates, mimics, or follows the lead of another.'

We read the same magazines, we shop in the same shops, we watch the same programmes ... 24/7 we are observing other people, the way they walk, the way they talk and the way they dress ... We can't help but get a little inspiration from the person whose sat at the bus stop with fab shoes, or the person that's having a coffee whose bag you just have to have.

Being a lover of all things fashion orientated, I often get asked where my clothes are from or where I bought my latest arm candy … Friends constantly ask me to style them and being a stylist (and a friend) the answer is always of course!

But … at what point does it stop becoming flattering and simply becomes annoying?

All you true fashionistas out there know, that real style comes from the individual and the most inspiring outfits are put together by that individual.

So … Copycat, copycat, sitting on the doormat … Do we welcome them in or do we shoo them away?!
