Every morning, I go to Pinterest and do a deep dive looking for stylish things that catch my eye. For me, it’s fun, exciting and worth the time. I see some detail that makes me search deeper into another detail and before I know it, it’s lunch time. Why do I do it? Because I am fundamentally CURIOUS. I want to know what’s out there-not from a desire to duplicate. It’s more about wanting to take a pile of things and distill them down to something fresh that resonates for me. It’s a desire to identify things pre-peak, not post-peak. It’s part of what made me successful as a Designer Sportswear Buyer who then developed a strong Bridge Sportswear business when that layer was first emerging. Some people want to find a cure for cancer. Great! For me, finding a way to bring more style to more lives-that’s my passion.
I hope you are having fun working through my list of suggested ways to refresh your style. One of the sites that I have followed for years is CoolHunting.com. They curate some of the most interesting ideas/items/trends I have ever seen. Whether or not you are planning a trip to Kyoto, it’s really fun to see what’s going on in the world. Who knows? Maybe you will run into someone who is going, and you can share the info! That’s how being curious can connect us to each other.
Living a stylish life is about how all the things in the world that interest you come together.
If you don’t look, you won’t see.
