Bait

Jeans Red Valentino - White button down Bite Back collar shirt Pull & Bear -
Polka dot sweater Liz Claiborne -Teal sunglasses Kenneth Cole Reaction -
Emerald green velvet loafers Zara - Grey bag Ferragamo
Magazine covers are a bait, not only so you will buy the magazine, but of course so you'll see all the advertised goods and plunge into them. This, after you have been updated, inspired, educated or whatever the reason is you bought the magazine for (yes, I still buy magazines). I mostly use them for inspiration, however sometimes my eye catches a particular item I am drawn to and the hunt for it begins. This time around it was a fun collar button down shirt which appeared on the local Ellas magazine cover, which after some googling turned out to be from Pull & Bear, a store I admit that I never go in to.. Anyways, this time around I swallowed the bait and am wearing it today. How about you ? When was the last time you purchased something because you saw it in a magazine or maybe a blog ? What was it ?

I love fashion magazines and consistently look to them for inspiration. I follow a ton of blogs and brands on social media, but I still love flipping through a magazine. The last thing I bought after seeing (and smelling!) it advertised in a magazine was Miu Miu's fragrance. I just loved the mod styling for the spread. And the peppery notes in that perfume - LOVE! Also, I adore your preppy look with the cheeky collar poking out!

I think it's been a while since I last read or bought something from a magazine! I remember getting so excited to see a pencil skirt that shared my name in a magazine and bought it on sale. Still have it! Last thing I bought because of a blog was probably my chambray maxi skirt thanks to Beth at Almost Posh, hehe! We have such similar tastes I'm always wanting what she shares!

Your shirt is really fun and the collar is perfect over the polka dots :)

Hope you're having a fantastic week :)

Dear Lorena, now wonder you wanted it as it looks fantastic and also how you combined it! I see very often something I buy finally in a blog or magazine - I think the last time was 2 days ago :)

¡Buenos días, Lorena! Un estilismo fabuloso, como siempre lo mejor está en los detalles. Iba a decir que el suéter con estampado a topos era mi prenda favorita, pero al ver el detalle del cuello de la camisa... es genial!

Un beso y feliz semana,
Le Style et Moi

Most of my looks I imagine by myself, of course this might be inspired sth I have seen... Where? Hmm, I think that most inspired to me is Pinterest - It is fast look on a lot of different looks. Magazine I buy once a 3 months. (...) Your latest dottet looks are very nice. Greets from Turkey

I love the script on your collar! Looks so good Lorena! You get wonderful inspiration from Fashion magazines.

Awesome outfit! Those elegant green Zara loafers are slaying me.

It's exceedingly rare for me to buy something from a magazine (in part because so few modern ones highlight pieces that are up my vintage style alley), but several months ago now, I did track down (from a different source) and buy a darling tank top that I saw on Shelia's blog. That's the last such experience that I can recall having.

xoxo ♥ Jessica

Great find. To be honest I am still on the hunt for a steal price Balenciaga moto bag after seeing it on the Olsen twins in a now 10 year old magazine haha! Yes magazines sure can pull at us.
