Recommended Reading: Fashion for Nerds

Well. You all know that Audi and I have been friends for years. We connected through blogging, and have been swapping clothes, trading ideas, and counseling each other on shopping, style, and personal matters for ages. She is a brilliant woman and an amazing friend.

What you might not know is that Audi is also my primary sartorial inspiration and style icon. Like most women, I love me some celeb style, but in the back of my mind I’m always aware that those folks have paid stylists telling them what to wear and what to avoid. Audi is her own stylist. And she has impeccable taste, to be sure, but she’s also daring. Fearless, even. She makes it clear with every outfit and every post that her priority is to be creative, interesting, unique, bold, and expressive. Dressing beautifully is marvelous, but dressing creatively is inspiring. And Audi inspires me to try new pieces, combinations, and proportional mixes. She challenges me to step outside my comfort zone. She makes me more creative and bold with my own choices by being creative and bold with hers.

    I love Audi! She is so daring and has inspired me to try different things like layering skirts! I love her style so much but can’t emulate it as much as I would like because she has very different proportions than I do. Unlike Sal, who is a pretty good match for me.

  • Yay! for Audi. Long before I had a blog, I would read her all the time, and swoon over her cool outfits. She is a star.

  • Yay! I’ve been a fan of Audi’s for many years – I love her bold and creative style.

  • I love Audi’s blog. Haven’t read it in a while but that just means there will be lots to enjoy when I have a minute to go back.

    She seems like SUCH a cool person.

  • Love her! I also consider her an inspiration for the creative ways she combines garments. She manages to be interesting and edgy without being too too.

    I love Audi, but I dont think a plus size woman like myself could do all of the layering she does without looking like a polar bear. You are equally as thin as Audi and can get away with it. I like to catagorize her look as complicated, interesting, non-traditional, inspired. I also love the fact that she studied millinery as I have. I wish she was my friend as well because I can tell she is an awesome lady.
