I would like to think that I am up to date with what's hip and happening. I am mistaken. Or perhaps it's not just me. Tell me, have you heard of the site called the look book?
It is a fashion forum that is very much "happening" (do we still use that term? hahaha!). Ok fine! The look book (because my source tells me it's not cool to say lookbook.nu) is the home of real people who are fashionistas and we can say people who welcome vanity with open arms. Let me quote their site:
THE INTERNET'S LARGEST SOURCE OF FASHION INSPIRATION FROM REAL PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD.
But on a more serious note this forum is very interesting. I am now hooked in visiting it and checking out the different styles of people from around the globe. And they have weekly picks because people can "like" your outfits. The much needed affirmation and acceptance. We all want that in any way we can get it right? In lieu of promoting Filipino pride our very own Tricia Gosingtian has been consistently voted as one of the site's favorite! This 22-year old photographer and fashionista is also one of Forever21 Philippines brand ambassadors! Check out her blog to see how she styles herself everyday.
I am inspired and motivated. I am now considering opening an account and joining the look book. Oh yes, I join forums if they are very informative and helpful (like The Purse Forum). But sometimes it can lead to obsessing so I warn all of you. It is addicting!
Here are some of the pictures of Tricia I grabbed from the look book that you might like. Tell me what you think. (She takes her own photos so her hand is always hiding or clenched...hahahaha)
