The Most-Inspiring R29 Staff Pinners You Should Be Following

We love a good piece of eye candy. Okay, LOTS of eye candy. Amazing graphics, inspiring outfits, decadent foods, chic interiors, beautiful people, dreamy vacations — we'll take it all. And, of course, we love sharing the visuals with our readers. But beyond all the juicy Refinery29 content we produce, our team members also take some extra time to document their own sources of style inspiration, via current obsession, Pinterest. From our editor-in-chief to the VP of Sales, the R29 staff has caught Pinterest fever, and the results keep us logging in day after day for our fix of pics that instantly induce the oohs and aahs. Candy is dandy, but these 13 R29ers' personal Pinerest boards are even sweeter. Jump ahead for the ones to follow (and re-pin).

Christene Barberich —One of the most thrilling advantages of being on Pinterest is discovering the accounts of people who are leaders in the fashion industry. Our editor-in-chief Christene Barberich is no exception, and you can credit her growing cult following to her highly selective pins that give viewers an impeccable reflection of what style means to her.

But, don't expect it to be all serious. This editor also has a penchant for cats acting funny. And, the best takeaway? Christene's Vintage Obsessions board. Trust that you'll be quickly obsessed, too.

Piera Gelardi — Our creative director is not only the wonderful eye behind the R29 site, the R29 Instagram, and the R29 Pinterest, she also finds time to pin away at her personal cyber inspiration board — which we seriously appreciate.

From the sight of her wicked-cool graphics, stunning decor ideas, and, naturally, her fashion and beauty picks, we can't help but be enchanted by Piera's truly exciting blend of photography, art, and style. Landing at the top of our list of rad Pinterest-board names is "Googly Eyes," an eclectic feast for the eyes that delights us with Audrey Hepburn snaps, a baby dressed like Bowie, and every awesome bit of inspiration in between.

Connie Wang — Since global editor Connie Wang is a wordsmith with razor-sharp wit, one can pretty much assume that her pins are going to be just as charming. The ultimate highlights are Wang's comical deciphering of the entertaining pins she chooses. Key word: Entertaining. Check out her "udon-noodle shoes," "mammatus clouds," or "Fashion People Texting" board and you'll see just what we mean.

Or, perhaps, even a few steps ahead, as she's quick to discover a new trend or pin something we haven't seen before. If it's street-style inspiration or fashion newness you're craving, Laura is definitely the pinner you'll want to follow.

Kristian Laliberte —So, maybe you won't find a bazillion pins under busy senior editor Kristian Laliberte's Pinterest account, but that doesn't mean it isn't worthy of a little stroll-through. Not only are his pins hip and straightforward, many of them have commentary that will either make you chuckle (warning: keep the liquids away from computer) or gain a little personal insight into how this witty and stylish editor thinks. Plus, Kristian's "Beautiful Women" board is definitely worth a visit — especially since we secretly want to be on it. You hear us, KL?

Neha Gandhi — As Refinery29's deputy editor, you could say Neha Gandhi's pins are equally as engaging as the daily fashion talk in which she participates. Her commentary will quickly draw you into her fun and stylish world. As a lover of good hair, gorgeous clothes, and sharp-dressed men, it's evident that Neha loves what she does, and her approachable charm makes her the girl you want to be chatting with, if only through her pins.

Christine White — Many of us know Christine White as the fashion-loving multi-tasker behind Court And Hudson, but she's also Refinery's director of communications. And, on Pinterest, she's a must-follow.

You'll find plenty of organized boards with ideas for chic entertaining and colorful dressing, as well as cute ways to charm your love on Valentine's Day. If it's upbeat, useful, and creatively inspiring, you can bet Christine is going to pin it.

Angela Tafoya — West Coast editorial assistant Angela Tafoya's pins tell a pretty cool story. Modern-yet-quirky prints, collaged walls of art, healthy foodie ideas, and vintage bar carts... put these all together and you've got an all-around intriguing mix. If there's any account that gives off a certain vibe we're totally into, it's her's. Here's to hoping Angela keeps them coming!

Alison Koplar — It's quite obvious Alison Koplar's Pinterest account only includes the images that truly resonate with her personal style, and, as a result, followers are able to get a sense of her great taste. Bonus? She's catalogued her favorite design blogs for others to discover. Readers also simply must check out her charming "Happiness Board," if only for the cinnamon roll pancake pic.

Christie Craft — Christie's job as managing editor keeps her very busy, well, managing, but that doesn't mean she's not pinning. In fact, she's quite direct about what wins her over (Boston terrier finger tattoo, anyone?), and has an intriguing mix of pins that make you want to get into her mind. If you're seeking uplifting images that convey a sunny-weather attitude, make sure to follow her "Craving Spring" board. It's a definite smile-inducer.

Naomi Abel — Designer Naomi Abel's Pinterest account is where you can go to find a rather intriguing collection of both art and fashion, particularly in the world of graphics, edgy editorials, and highly detailed fabrics. Abel's selective pins are obviously material for what inspires her, and some may even force you to take a look from a different angle. We seriously enjoy seeing through this artist's personal POV.

Charlene Chang — At first glance, Charlene Chang's Pinterest account is one of a dreamy girl with wanderlust, but dig a little deeper and you'll see she's also quite fond of a cozy home life, and has specific ideas of just how she wants it to look. (Ditto for her clear-cut views on fashion.) Rest assured, there's plenty of great style in Chang's account that the Pinterest community will want to share.
