in addition to people who serve as consistent inspiration, i go through crushes - temporary interest in a particular celebrity or model. people who inspire me do so through their originality or strength. i am never interested in borrowing from them, but i get a certain charge from their style, like electricity that jumps to me and enlivens my own imagination. with crushes, on the other hand, i find that i tend to get lured to the things near them, and that their use/ownership/endorsement of those items puts some of the individual's appeal on to the items themselves, and i confuse the beautiful person's interest in those items for my own. maybe i pay a little more attention than i would if someone else (who i didn't have a crush on) were posing with, carrying, holding, wearing the same thing.
is there anyone (celeb, model, etc.) who has that power over you, to turn you into a ... sucker?
