Beauty behind simplicity and minimalism.

All of the above is what minimalism is to me, playing with different textures in fabrics, unique structure and shapes, along with a soft neutral color palette.  The designers and brands I listed are just about some that I feel really exhibit this type of minimalistic beauty in fashion.  It's such unbelievably beautiful eye candy to me, you can catch me staring at these sweet basics in awe..while coveting each.

Thought I'd start something a bit different too on these inspiration posts frequently posted now on my blog.  Inspired not only by fashion photos, but also by bloggers all around me of course.  Will post photos of bloggers I feel best suit the inspiration theme I'm writing about.  Enjoy! :)

Also, in the moodboards I put together, at the bottom of each I'll be adding links to the items with the cheapest options of that item for you, and if I can't find it, I'll include similar items with a link too noted as "similar choice."  Just a way to help you find an item you may want to purchase and save with thrifty options! :).  A fellow shopper (or shopaholic lol) helping another <3.

PS. I also wanted to let you know about a really rewarding and amazing campaign going on at the moment. It's called Wardrobe for Opportunity (WFO), a nonprofit that supports low-income individuals in the Bay Area and they are running a Trendsetter Campaign from June 14th - June 30th. Definitely check out the awesome 'virtual boutique' they created for the campaign! You can set a trend by donating $15, signing up to volunteer, or telling your friends. For more info, visit
Spread the  through fashion and join :).

Oh I absolutely love all the bloggers that you mentioned. I cannot live without my minimalistic pieces. I am quite a simple person when it comes to fashion, so all I ever purchase are pieces that are versatile!

Nice picks, love the minimal look, but I'm afraid I tend to pile on the jewelry- hence not minimalistic at all!!
Those A. Wang shoes are on sale right now hunny...I'd so totally get the peach colored ones though!
