Pinterest Inspiration - Stripes & Coloured Denim

If you ever want to predict success in technology or social media just ask me, then do the exact opposite of what I tell you.

Here are a few examples why:

Cell phones with cameras? Waste of money.
Every cell phone has a camera because we can no longer live without them.

Twitter? People will get bored of it and it will be like My Space.
I have a Twitter account and over a billion tweets a day are written, a billion a day!

Facebook - A place that I can see how people are doing from high school, university but nothing special.
How many billions is that thing worth?

Now Pinterest - I thought it would be a complete waste of time. Again WRONG. I have to say it is becoming my favourite.

What is Pinterest?

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard. 
Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes. Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. 
Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. 

So now if I like an outfit I see on the net I just "Pin It" and it is automatically placed on my virtual pinboard. It's all in one easy location and I don't have to wonder where I saw this or where I found that. Two of my favourite "Pinners" are Suzana and Renee and they have shown me what is possible. Renee pinned an outfit that I loved and I have all the pieces so I recreated the look...but not the pose...darn sun in my eyes.

Blazer - Cassis, Jeans - J Brand, Top - Banana Republic, Shoes - Tory Burch, Bracelets - Links of London

I am not sure where the original picture came from...anyway, happy pinning!
