So the other day I stumbled upon a new T.V. show, and guys, I'm hooked. I was trying to find some "Vinspiration" for the blog, so I flipped to this show called B.O.R.N. to Style. OMG. LOVE. It's on the FYI, network, which I guess used to be Bio? Dunno, but it seems like they're doing some fun and funky stuff, so I'll be on the lookout for more from this network.
So the show is based out of this funkly little shop in Harlem. The owner of the shop, Jonathan Bodrick, and his very quirky, very flamboyant staff work as stylists to help those stuck in a fashion rut.
The guys are super quirky. It kind of reminds me of a mix between RuPaul's Drag Race and What Not to Wear. Fun mix, right?
B.O.R.N. stands for borrowed, old, refurbished, and new, so, as you might expect, there are some really unique and funky vintage pieces on the show. Each episode they make a fashion shrine to represent their take on a celebrity's style, and then they use that shrine as inspiration when creating a look for the client. The looks they come up with are really fun and funky, but not too bizarre for everyday wear. They all have a bit of an edge to them, often with some vintage charm.
I love the idea of a shrine. It's so much more exciting than a cork board. Maybe I should make a shrine with some of my favorite pieces to help me out when I feel like my look is a little boring.
