Blog Inspiration, Wendy Brandes style

It was a wonderful surprise to wake up this morning to the post that the gorgeous Wendy B had done about me, following on from her fabulous post yesterday about her stunning vintage feather dress, which first had its debut with Wendy back in 1994 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala and then again this Tuesday at the Weeksville Heritage Center!

She continued to say that quite rightly, designer and vintage pieces should be cherished and not subjected to constant wardrobe culls, which I've adopted as my mantra too, please check out her wise words immediately!!

I met Wendy in July 2008 and it was such an exceptionally wonderful day, check out the full story here of our fabulous finds and how the day went. Here are some pictures of our fabulous day:

Of course, meeting Wendy only led to one thing-the purchase of my beautiful Diana ring, seen below and which can be purchased from Wendys fine jewelry line

Wendy was my first reader of my blog and its such a privilege to know her and learn from her wise words on style-and everything else come to that!!
Check out Wendys blog if you haven't already, she sure knows what she's talking about!!

Wendy's post is fabulous! What great photos, too. She's so right about keeping things you love. Even though most of my stuff costs peanuts I can recall the excitement I had when I found it each time I pick anything from my wardrobe. xxx

Ha ha ha...I wondered if I should warn you about my post and then I thought, "No, let her be surprised." But really, you are an inspiration just like your blog name says! I showed some of your thrift inspiration posts to MrB last night and he said, "WOW!!!!"

Well I don't blame your friend - you do know how to grab a find when you see one! I think we're made of the same stuff - my hubby is always awed by what I unearth in my thrifting expeditions! Great post

Hehe, you two are so sweet. And your Diana ring is awesome - I agree, when I saw WendyB's stuff in real life it just made me want to go into a jewellery buying frenzy.
