He recommends collecting photos over a period of time of things that you like. Not just clothing. But things that inspire you. I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but I don't subscribe to a lot of magazines & I couldn't get my images to look cohesive in Photoshop. And then I remembered Polyvore. So I set out to make an inspiration board, or two. :)
Now, these are far from inclusive. It's kind of opposite from what the book reocmmends. Instead of "stumbling" across inspiration, I was actively searching for it. Which worked well for me, I think. :)
My first set is black & white, with some red thrown in for some color. The black & white combo has always been a "fall back" for me. In fact, I realized a year ago that black was taking over my closet, so I started buying browns instead of black & introducing more & more color. It's a work in progress.

The next set I created is much more colorful & bright. What can I say--I'm craving spring. Gerbera daisies are my favorite so I started off with those.
