Pinterest is sort of like Etsy: so many pages that it can be overwhelming to figure out who’s worth following (see: WTF, Pinterest?). To make the whole inspiration-gathering thing a bit easier, Shoppist scoured countless boards to determine Philly’s top 10 pinners. Keep reading to see who to follow—and then be sure to head over to Shoppist’s Pinterest page for even more stuff to love.
1. Stephen & Shauna: Quirky Home and Family Goods
Stephen and Shauna, the duo behind the blog Something's Hiding in Here, also curate their eponymous Pinterest page. We love its boards dedicated to packaging (Old and New) and its not-so-subtle hints from Shauna to Stephen: Stephen, these are things i might buy for you. (maybe) and Stephen, you can buy me any of these things. xoxo, Shauna.
2. Omoi Zakka: Odds and Ends With a Japanese Flair
Come here for pics of drool-worthy desk essentials and inspiration (I Will Write You a Letter and I'm in my Office!), all an extension of the thoughtfully curated lifestyle boutique. Bonus: You can click through the links to buy from their online shop.
3. Dallas Shaw: Immaculately Organized Boards
Wilmington-based blogger and illustrator Dallas Shaw crafts a board that's the perfect midpoint between fashion and art. Peruse her fall and winter style boards for street-style pics and plucked-from-the-web items that are sure to land on your lust list. And there's no shortage of sartorial inspiration here: Her account has over 6,000 pins.
4. NINObrand: Luxe Fashion From a Local Designer
NINObrand is our go-to for high-end fashion organized in easy-to-maneuver boards. You'll find Vogue-worthy images organized in pages devoted to haute couture and runway. Be sure to check out the head piece board; it had us ready to invest in a bedazzled crown.
5. Terrain: Garden Know-How
The Glen Mills garden-and-home haven crafts gorgeous boards dedicated to terrarium inspiration (Terrain Terrariums) as well as a few that'll put you in the holiday spirit (A Good-Natured Christmas and Feeling Fall). Pure beauty all around.
6. AphroChic: Culture-Infused Interiors
We were instantly drawn to AphroChic's intense color-coordination (10 separate boards grouped by color!). The super-organized account largely revolves around interior design, but it's sprinkled with quirky round-ups we're happy to have in our Pinterest feed, like one entirely dedicated to adorable party tips.
7. Melissa Noucas: All Things Feminine
Filled with airy pastel, Noucas's page is the epitome of femininity. Go here for tea-party inspiration (Hostess with the Mostess) and ideas for this year's holiday cards (Design). Warning: You'll most likely leave her page with a hankering for macarons.
8. Art in the Age: Wanderlust-Inducing Photography
Old City hipster staple Art in the Age creates a cohesive page that leaves us longing for chilly weekends filled with craft drinks (Art in the Age Drink Recipes) and yes, even a nature hike (Adventures).
9. Per Lei: Pre-Picked Outfits for Every Type of Girl
Per Lei makes its page easy to navigate with titles such as The Prep and The Glam Girl. In fact, there are eight boards dedicated to certain styles (think Trendsetters or Classic), plus another three boards for major trends. Smart shopping tip: Sneak a peek at upcoming collections with boards dedicated to boutique previews.
10. Denise Fike: Original Art and Editorial Images
Those familiar with Pinterest know that it can get a little ho-hum when everyone starts pinning the same things. Enter Denise Fike. The local artist (you'll know her by her crazy hats!) has several boards dedicated solely to Fashion Illustration, as well as one board full of Paper Inspiration that kind of makes us want to go crazy with some shears.
