I had a chance to hear Bobbi Brown speak, and wrote about it in this post here.
There was a question and answer portion at the end, and I was lucky enough to get to ask the incomparable Bobbi Brown a question.
When Bobbi started her talk, she talked about how she forged her brand an inspiration above what the trendy thing to do was around her (hilariously enough it was heavy contour and drag queen level makeup…sound familiar). Well my question picked up from that moment, how do you find inspiration and direction in your personal brand and style, without getting caught up in what’s trendy?
Bobbi said something that I’m sure I’ll harp on forever…she doesn’t look at makeup for makeup inspo, or magazines to decide what’s stylish…she looks at other art forms to draw inspiration.
Well that got me thinking, if I look outside of clothes, magazines, etc. where would I draw my inspiration for my personal brand…and I decided to make a mini inspiration board to share with you all, so you can get a sense of the aesthetic I want for my blog, instagram, my pesonal style, my apartment, hell, even myself.
The women, the vibe, the locations, the colors, the vibe is where I plan on taking my brand this year. But I wanted to take a page from Bobbi and share where I draw my inspiration from.
Who or what inspires you beyond the typical places…what locations, photographers, old movies, etc. do you draw inspo from?
