Fashion Inspirations

Over the years I have gathered many fashion inspirations, some timeless classics and others just a current obsession.

Firstly we have the incredible timeless and beautiful miss Audrey Hepburn 

Audrey's style will live throughout time, she is a symbol woman of any age can turn to. She has effortless class and beauty! A little black dress and a set of pearls will never date! Just like Audrey 

Secondly, Grace Kelly 

Grace Kelly in my eyes is complete perfection, she never had a hair out of place and was always poised! Something that has always appealed to me and the type of woman I hope to be.

Thirdly we have my first proper inspiration and this is the Olsen Twins

I love these girls style! I love their bohemian chic. I genuinely believe they can pull any look off! 
The Olsen twins started the collection of fashion books I now have all over my bedroom! Their book "Style Secrets  .... what to wear and how to wear it" taught me the basics of fashion and really set the ball in motion for finding my very own style!

Next up is the beautiful California girl Lauren Conrad

I love Lauren for a number of reasons! I loved her in The Hills (she was always my favourite) I loved her for leaving to create her line. Her life was my dream (to work for a magazine) I still want to be Lauren! I love her line for Kohls, especially her Cinderella line! Who doesn't want to be a princess!
Lauren Conrad is the sole reason for my phase of wearing black nail varnish for a whole year. And know this was not a gothic phase but a chanel one ;) . Lauren Conrad has also released a series of novels, LA Candy and The Fame Game. I will leave a link for anyone interested! They are a great beach read.

But also Lauren was the next big edition to my fashion book collection. Lauren's book STYLE looks into basic fashion musts, how to style them. What best suits you, accessories and much much more! I still to this day sometimes have a look at Lauren's book for reference. She later came out with the book BEAUTY which the title explains it's self and another book I still refer to.

I will quickly go through the next few ( I don't want to bore you)

Olivia Palermo

I just think Olivia is the queen of style! I don't think I have ever thought "I don't like" what she is photographed in!!

Louise Roe 

I just love her style! But I also love her resume, she has worked for InStyle and Vogue and also E! amongst other things! I really would love her career! 

She is also the latest edition to my fashion book collection and a recommended read 

Front Roe

And finally, a current favourite of mine is Lucy Watson from Made In Chelsea 

I just think she is cool and has encouraged me to wear trainers more and jeans and slouchy sweatshirts!

Thank you for reading! Let me know if we share any inspirations or any of your own! Always looking for more



Hello!! I am Fashion Obsessed!!!


Welcome to my little space on the internet! 

I would like to introduce myself and just say a little bit about what this blog is going to be about. 

My name is Emma Baxter and I am a Marketing student from Glasgow, Scotland. I love all things fashion. I'm a little bit obsessed!!!

Ever since my very early memories I knew I loved all things fashion and beauty. I also had a love for interior design. I remember my grandma had a large cupboard just filled with shoes every colour, style and height imaginable. It was from the moment I opened this cupboard and smelt the leather and put my little feet into the shoes, I knew there was something special about shoes and clothes. I also have inherited a love for handbags from my mum. Something takes my breath away when I walk into a handbag department! I can't help myself I want it all! Also from a young age I loved watching home transformation programmes! I would walk around my grans flat draping silk scarves in her living room pretending I was Linda Barker! I've always liked my room being pretty and buying bits and bobs for it (its grown rather crowded) This is another wonderful quality my mum has passed down. Our house is so beautifully decorated, she really has an eye. When I move out I really hope I create an equally as beautiful space as she has.I know I must achieve a career in fashion and over time I hope this happens. Styling would be the ultimate dream. But for now I want to share my own little knowledge online.

So this blog will look into latest trends, some outfit of the days, opinions on some celebrity styles, some beauty tips, opinions on products and just overall thoughts. 

I promise this will not be a purely text blog!! I just haven't contained any pics in this post as its just a brief introduction.

I really hope this reaches even a few people and helps or interests them
