The Nowhere Girls

The Nowhere Girls is one of my favourite photoblogs that I turn to for inspiration. Each day, the photo flow is beautiful, working well with its overall aesthetic. In a sea of visual overload, The Nowhere Girls is a great work of collected photographs and images, and I recently chatted with, Chelsea, the creator of this wicked Tumblr who told me a bit about what makes her and The Nowhere Girls tick.

Who is behind The Nowhere Girls? 
So far, just myself. Which may seem a bit odd considering the plural name. When I first started the blog and was deciding on a name, I came to this idea that I wanted to be able to reach different people with unique interests. Girls (or guys!) who don't fit into one specific aesthetic or style. They fit in nowhere, yet everywhere.

What occupies your day-to-day? What are you currently working on/working towards?
I currently work on a TV show in Los Angeles which I love doing, but The Nowhere Girls is my baby. Every morning I gather tons of images from blogs, fashion websites, online shops etc., then I decide which images best fit my mood/color theory of the day. Eventually I'd like to expand the blog and build a fashion lifestyle brand around it....stay tuned ;)

Any plans for your Blogspot?
I actually started The Nowhere Girls on Blogspot not long before the Tumblr. But then, I decided that I would begin with just posting images and gain a following with that, which tumblr was great for.
Now that I have a fantastic reader base, I'd definitely like to continue with the Blogspot to dig a bit deeper down into fashion. 

Who are your style inspirations? 
I have to admit, I find myself most inspired when I'm flipping through random photos from street style blogs. But just to give a visual sense I'll list some specific people always on my radar:
Erin Wasson- for her "stray from the norm" aesthetic. That girl has cool written all over her.
Gillian Zinser- her mix of feminine elements with tomboy edge keeps me intrigued ALWAYS.
Taylor Tomasi Hill- for her adventurous style. Is there anything she doesn't look good in?
Rumi Neely of fashiontoast- her style is always evolving and in the best of ways. 

What is your dream job? 
My dream job would be to run my own fashion-based company, surrounded by creative people who share the same passion as myself.

Any last words? 
I'll end it with one of my favorite quotes on fashion:
"Fashion...for me, is purely and happily irrational." - Heidi Silmane
