The Truth About Style / by Stacy London
Before I read Stacy’s book, I believed it was a little narcissistic + frivolous to care about how you look.
But because of her, now I know that my relationship with my reflection in the mirror is actually a big deal. And it’s healthy to care about it. Because what I believe about myself + my worth impacts my choices, my beliefs, and my actions. AKA my life.
Stacy makes me happy because she tells it like it is. She owns her story with zero shame, she knows she has a purpose and she goes for it, and she doesn’t spend time worrying about what other people think of her. She empowers women for a living and I think that’s awesome.
Project 333 / a minimalist fashion challenge
Before I discovered Courtney’s blog, I believed dressing with less was nice idea for other, more disciplined people…not me.
But because of her, now I know that anyone can do it and see some serious transformation in their lives + closets. (I did!)
Courtney makes me happy because she’s gentle yet firm. She holds passionately to her (slightly intimidating) convictions, but she delivers them in a gentle way that just makes you want to listen + act.
Into-Mind / a minimalist approach to personal style + wardrobe building
Before I discovered Anuschka’s blog, I believed that it would always take me 15+ minutes to figure out what I wanted to wear every morning.
But because of her,now I know that with a little planning, getting dressed in the mornings can be a snap.
Anuschka makes me happy because she’s incredibly detailed. She leaves no stone unturned when it comes to wardrobe building. My inner list-maker loves her organized, thorough approach. In my opinion, she’s the final word on how to find your style.
Kendi Everyday / a style blog for the everyday girl
Before I discovered Kendi’s blog, I believed fashion–and fashion blogs–weren’t for regular girls like me. It was all too serious + too weird + too impractical for my actual life.
But because of her, now I know that style is meant to be fun + functional. You’re supposed to play a little, you’re supposed to make mistakes, you’re supposed to look back and be all, “OMG what was I wearing?!” And then you’re supposed to smile and laugh, because really, who cares?
Kendi makes me happy because she’s witty and totally relatable. I just want to be her best friend.
I have so much respect + love for these ladies. Each one played a role in inspiring me to start Unfancy, and I’m so grateful. They are changing the landscape of fashion and style–making it more relatable, more valuable, and more meaningful. Pretty cool stuff, if you ask me.
If you know of any other amazing style resources, I’d love it if you’d share them below in the comments!
i love all of these! another fun and informative website is http://www.puttingmetogether.com/
I’m a huge fan of both Kendi and Stacy London, so I’m really excited to check out the other two! I so love the minimalist wardrobe idea, but it really does take time and lots of thought to get it working. Thanks for the inspiration!
Great resources! Caitlin at Greater Than Rubies is wonderful. http://greaterthanrubies.net/
Thank you for posting these resources! I hadn’t read any of them previously, and am now hooked on the Into-mind blog.

I’m absolutely loving your blog! I’m with you on wanting to be Kendi’s best friend. Seriously, the girl is classy and hilarious. Her blog is daily bookmarked fave.
I’m so inspired to clean out the insanity I call my closet. And curb the shopping addiction. I mean, in reality, I’m only wearing 30 pieces on the regular anyways– it’s about time to commit to this!
Thanks for your insight and inspiration! :-)
I’m loving your blog! It’s definitely helping me figure out my style and narrow down what I love & what I don’t. I’m definitely going to read Stacy London’s book! I loved her on What Not To Wear!
