Wardrobe Remix

Image1

I recently rediscovered the flickr community wardrobe remix, and I now remember how awesome it is - how did I forget?! It's a flickr group for daily outfit photos, and is populated by bloggers and non-bloggers alike. I joined it ages ago but didn't really fully explore until now. I like it much better than your traditional chictopia and lookbook.nu - there's no voting, and the members seem like they got dressed for a normal day - not just to take photos of themselves! 

I realise that's a bit rich coming from a fashion blogger, but one of the reasons I love blogging is because I want to see fashion inspiration from real women, going to work and school and just about their day, not impossible magazine images.

If you are a flickr user, or even if you aren't you should definitely click over and have a look, you won't be disappointed!

I'm not a member of the flickr community, but the images above are very nice. Everyone seems to be on the flickr thing now. I doubt I have time to join and so forth. Another reason to visit your blog again;-)

Yes I love Wardrobe Remix. I joined ages ago but had completely forgotton about it with everything else going on. I am going to check it out again.

love these pics!
I like the fact that there is no voting - who are we to judge each other? and that they are real outfits for day to day life. For me, real style is daily, part of life - not something impossible to wear or fit into your day to day routine. Thanks for introducing me to this x

I love wardrobe remix! That's how I got into fashion blogging really, through reading other fashion blogs from wardrobe remix users. I like how 'real' it is and there is a lot more variety in the outfits too.

Sounds like a great flickr group. I'm always inspired by daily outfits of people.

Oh loved this! I really don't enjoy that marginal style of people who seem to be a bit unreal. Not my cup of tea.

Daily outfits are the best though! And they can inspire you when you least expect it. Definetely will follow the group. x

i agree with wanting to be inspired by regular people rather than high up. it's more relatable.

also i agree with keeping one pair of trainers for gym separate. just trying defo going for a sporty option
