|This is a tip from Nancy Erickson, which I found recently and which I really enjoy:
Every now and then I buy a couple of fashion magazine for inspiration. I cut out the clothing photographies of everything I like, to stick them into a scrapbook. I don't restrict myself to the fashion section though, I also cut out pictures of whoever it is, if I like the clothing.
Now comes my tip: From the photo, I cut off the head of the person wearing the clothing and all advertisement text or labels, if it is not part of the garnment. I stick all these garnment photos in my scrapbook. I found that by keeping only the picture of the clothing without a person's head, it is much easier to actually "see" how the garnment really looks like and it is easier to imagine how I may look like in it.
