String Theory: An Inspiration Workshop

Inspiration string by Aaryn Nutter

Last night I attended a workshop organized by two incredibly talented ladies, Bri Emery [of DesignLoveFest] and Jen Gotch [of Ban.do]. It was a casual and fun event where creativity took on a new form: the inspiration string. They’ve essentially reinvented the mood board, making it more tactile and 3d and awesome. We were encouraged to bring our own trinkets and ephemera, but of course they supplied us with oodles of colorful and sparkly bits to help us along. And to set the mood just right, this all took place inside of one of the happiest places on earth; Anthropologie. It was almost too much eye candy to handle. I do like how mine came out, and it looks pretty neat in my office, don’t you think?

Statement Shoes

Aaryn West Trends Statement Shoes

After a little online shopping one thing is clear: it’s definitely the season of printed shoes. Sandals, ballet flats, heels, boots, or 4″ platforms; you can find all of those and more in a stupid crazy array of prints. Whatever your style may be, there’s bound to be a pair with your name on it. Style them with jeans and a tee, or an LBD to let your feet lap up the attention. Or pull on a printed frock for a snazzy print-mixing look. Below are a few of my favorites, but it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what’s out there. Which ones are screaming your name?
