If you have followed „Linda, Libra, Loca“ for a while now, you may have noticed I rarely talk about fashion, let alone share what I have been wearing.
Now there are many reasons, but the main one is I usually grab a jeans and a top and run out.
I wouldn’t go as far as saying I have absolutely no sense of fashion, but… it isn’t my strongest feature.
|My uniform. Not a lot of variety here…|
18 month of either being pregnant or trying to get back in shape haven’t put me in the mood to update my wardrobe, but I figured that it was time to get back on track and get a little more fashionable.
So as a first step I cleared out my wardrobe and turned to Pinterest and magazines to get some inspiration.
Now this may again just be me, but I have a hard time to actually transfer the look I see on the runway into an actual outfit.
I´ll read about a trend, decide I want to incorporate it, head out to the stores and…
am absolutely clueless what to buy.
Let me give you an example:
There is no secret to buying a woolen cardigan.
But the struggle is to decide which one is right for my body shape.
You know, the stuff that takes „I was freezing and now look like I am going to an arctic expedition“ to the „Lets light a fire and look longingly into each others eyes while my cardi slips off my shoulder in a subtle yet sexy way“.

Of course, these days the Internet offers help.
That may be buying from an Instagram picture or have online stylists send you ready made outfits to consider, links where to buy included.
Or, my latest obsession, the „FashionID“ Online-Shop.
Not only do they have quite a selection of brands (Armani till yaya, along with more affordable ones thrown in the mix), but they have some awesome features like „Shop the trend“ or telling you whether the clothes run true to size, large or small.
An example again:
I am sitting on my couch, cold drink in hand, browsing the „Inspiration“ site for summer outfits, be they „Streetstyle“, „Editors Picks“ or, my favorite, „Bloggers Look of the Day“.
Something grabs my attention (See original site here):

Instead of running out to the shops, looking for similar stuff and discovering back home that the colors don’t work together at all, I just click „Shop the look“ and everything is listed neatly, ready for me to buy.
All it takes now is choose the right size (made easy by recommendations based on my measurements) and hit „Buy“.

I personally wouldn’t get the clutch or the pumps and pair everything with black (maybe less fashionable, but way more practical when you have a toddler running around)
Of course they offer free shipping, free returns (much needed when it comes to Online Shopping, at least in my case) and 60 days return time.
But as these things seem pretty standard in high-class online shops, it is the other features that keep me coming back.
Have you tried „Fashion ID“ before?
And do you think I actually ended up buying the Orange Flavor Look?
