It’s said that inspiration can come from anywhere: music, friends, a cafe-lit strokes of genius, but I for one have never come across anything remotely related to a style epiphany while scarfing down lukewarm paninis and hot coffee.
My inspiration has always been a bit more obvious, usually motivated by free shipping minimums online and the perpetual burden of running at least five minutes late at all times. I also have my fair share of fashion bloggers I try to live vicariously through. On any day, I might linger on Song of Style, lusting after every pair of Aimee’s lace-up pumps. I’ll then hop over to Cupcakes & Cashmere and bookmark 3 or 4 of Emily’s D.I.Y. projects I’m absolutely convinced I’ll get around to one day.It’s a pretty female-centric list–which is great–but what about all the dapper dudes of the blogosphere?
