Oh So Inspiring: The Satorialist

A few weeks ago, thanks to my friend Pablo, I discovered the Satorialist. It's a blog about fashion on the street. The blog is simply photos of fashionable folks going about their day in the city. This particular photo is from Milan, though most of the pictures are from New York.

As a Dallas resident, the opportunity to see fashion on the street is one I don't run across in everyday life. Here we drive to our offices in the morning and back into our garages at night. You can go an entire day with out walking more than a few hundred consecutive steps.

Plus, people here are very casual. We wear jeans, t-shirts and flip-flops 50% of the time and shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops the other half. Basically, most of us have no real sense of style.

Considering the link between fashion and interior design, I consider The Sartorialist a wonderful resource for decorating inspiration. It's only a matter of time before the colors and styles on the streets make the leap into our living rooms.

The site has been around since 2005, which makes me a late adopter. But just in case you missed it as well, here's the link.

Sarah, the statement you just made about the link between home decor/design and fashion is so overlook by most fashion observers. It has long been true that as we gravitate towards colors in our (easily changed) clothes, we also incororate them into our homes.

Witness the emergence of brown a few years back and now our homes are loaded with shades of cocoa. Right now it is fun to see the rise of lemons and lime greens on the street and in stylish interiors.

I'm with you - I love to see the parallel! The Satorialist is too much fun.

I'm very excited to see what comes after the yellows and greens. I'm thinking it may be red?
