She’s Denni, the girl behind the uber-famous fashion blog Chicmuse
I usually don’t read outfit-only blogs. The only one I’ve liked so far is the beautiful blog of Zarna.
It’s complicated to explain, but usually I just don’t find them that much inspiring. It’s not a judgment, I think it is because they’re a mix of things that don’t relate to me: they’re not as great as the fashion icons that I admire (and adore… ehm… Taylor Tomasi anyone?) or the fashion editorials I read in magazines but at the same time they’re still too beautiful and stylish (and often much more wealthy than I am) to look at them as girls like me from which I can take inspiration for my everyday style.
It just doesn’t work with me.
(Of course I still like a lot of blog that mix outfit posts to other kinds of articles but this is another thing)
But one day I saw her…
And all of the sudden I understood what a muse is (and seriously, it’s funny but this has nothing to do with her blog name)
I browsed through her blog for a good 20 minutes then took my paper and inks and start to draw furiously.
These are the first two drawings (of which I’m not even that convinced if I have to be sincere) I did of her but I bet there will be more in the future
Why do I like her so much? I don’t know how to explain it, she just pushes the right fashion-beauty-freak button inside me. She’s elegant but edgy, she’s beautiful but in a really unique way and most importantly she has a real statement style, with her super long black hair, the thick eye-liner and the red lips
If I were a fashion designer I think I would draw many clothes inspired by her.
And isn’t this, in the end, what a muse is?
(Do you like her? I think I can say she’s my fashion fixation muse number 2 after Taylor Tomasi… Add a 3rd one and the next time I look at myself into the mirror I’ll start to go out with hidden in a big potato bag)
