The New Style Blogger We Can't Help But Copy

Meet Talisa Sutton. She's the founder of Australia-based fashion blog Badlands, is a freelance graphic designer and consultant, and has one of the coolest wardrobes we've ever seen. Though her looks all maintain a distinct minimalist quality, they still manage to feel of-the-moment and innovative. We recently came across her site (she started it back in 2010), and have been ogling her outfits ever since. Scroll through our roundup of her best recent ensembles, and keep going to shop the pieces that play homage to her coolest looks…
