Pretty in PINK + The Cork Debate

A few years back, MAV (Maria Alexandra Vettese) created a now very well-known and well-styled campaign for Victoria’s Secret PINK, and that campaign and brand re-haul stuck.  MAV now keeps these stunning little vignettes and inspiration boards neatly photographed on her site, so that we all may swoon just a little bit.

In addition to being a magpie to all things pink, I’m in love with the “old-fashioned” inspiration board.  I’m sort of torn about internet inspiration – the internet has sort of swallowed our inspiration up whole and also helped to foster it in a big way.  Though many of us have become Pinterest addicts, there’s something genuine and ever-inspiring about a back-to-basics cork board.

Inquiring minds want to know (me, me, me), are you a child of the future – i.e., online pin boards are your calling, or is the cork and push-pin more your style?
