Boiling Down Example Fashion Observations

Brainstorm

  • Sighting – where the clothing or trend was spotted
    • Sources – magazine, celebrity, shop/store, on the street, etc….
  • Photo (gallery) – of individual celebrity sighting with fashion that should be noted
  • Opinion – indicate like/dislike of style/color/execution
  • Relate
    • Similarity –  to style spotted before
      • Variation – Indicate if this version of style is better or worse
    • Would work on me – style that fits your taste/personality/body style
    • Recommended fit – maybe recommend the type of person it would work on
  • Follow – keep tabs on specific fashion you are interested in
    • celebrities – watch celebs that usually have styles you like
    • items – watch accessories and other clothing items you like (e.g. purses, scarves, shoes)
    • styles – watch for patterns, colors, textures, materials, etc….
    • other?
  • Trends
    • Influential celebs – those that have great style
    • Out there celebs – those that have horrible style or stand out for whatever reason
    • Emerging items/styles – things that seem to be more apparent than others
    • Form – items are becoming popular (accessories) or whole outfits or color/style/materials, etc

I don’t LOVE that website… the celeb portion where it shows what celebs wear “on the street” is just pictures with the celeb name underneath, but nothing about the clothes they are wearing.  they have ton of fashion info, but I kind of like the idea of a mixture of celeb gossip and fashion…

love her shoes.  I generally love her style, so I always look at what she’s wearing.

love the purse and shoes.  the red and white striped shirt is not my favorite I’ve seen, but this seems to be a new trend.  I also really like her necklace.  but I don’t love the skirt, mainly b/c it would look horrible on me…and I don’t really like it with that outfit.
