As a personal shopper and wardrobe consultant, I use Pinterest as a tool to track my clients' style likes and to gather inspiration for them. I've also gotten quite a few friends hooked on Pinterest. One of the first things people ask is "how do I know who to follow?" It can be pretty overwhelming to just select a category and see the thousands of things pinned every minute, so I thought I might suggest a few places to start. There are many, many fashionable people on Pinterest, but these are all people who also pin often so you'll get a steady stream of inspiration.

Justina Blakeney at http://pinterest.com/compai. One of the top pinners on the site, Justina has over 1.2 million followers. Her perspective is earthy, natural, and bohemian, with pins about motherhood, food, fashion, and home design. 

Mrs. French at http://pinterest.com/tracif/. Mrs. French has even more followers (over 4 million!) and her pins are often dreamy and romantic images. 

Dree Harper (http://pinterest.com/DreeHarper/) is a personal shopper, stylist, and regular contributor to my favorite site, Refinery29.com. She pins a wide range of things, from fashion-forward style, to vacation spots, to inspirational quotes.

Joanna Goddard's pinterest page (http://pinterest.com/joannagoddard) is how I actually keep up with her super-popular blogA Cup of Jo. Lots of pins from her blog posts.

Joslyn is perhaps my favorite blogger. Her style is minimalist and artistic and I love how she writes honestly about handling life with a full time job and two daughters. I never get tired of reading her blog, and her pinterest page (http://pinterest.com/simplelovely/is just as beautifully curated.

So, anyone inspired to check out these pinners? Have any of your own favorites to recommend?
