Moodboarding



Moodboarding is something which i can never remember not doing, nevermind doing.  For aslong as i can remember, this has been my own way of making sense of trends, thoughts, feelings and ideas where what i am wearing is concerned, so it seemed almost rude for it not to have its own very special section on here! 

Now there are so many sights which let you do this sort of thing online, by cutting and pasting and 'borrowing' images to make up online moodboards, but i am old school! I have tried to dabble in such sights, but i always come back to my own little concept.  

Each board is unique in its ideas and why what's on it, is.  Anything i can glue down will make its way on there:  magazine,leaflet and newspaper cuttings; my own photos, song lyrics, material - you get the idea.  But each one has a general theme behind it, and i update and re-visit them all at some point, using them for ideas and inspiration behind what i wear.  So if you see odd snippets popping up in my outfit posts, now you know why and where they come from!

I hope that others will enjoy scrolling through them, and even using them for their own inspiration.  Each one has notes below, just to shed a bit more light into this and that!
