I always want to wear something that is special ,that best fits me and that nobody else has...but I want to be fashionable so I try to inspire my looks from fashion shows but sometimes I feel that those clothes are rather silly than fashionable! Am I seeing the empty side of the fashion glass?

Know your personal style. Not everything that is fashionable reflects that style. You need to be able to pick and choose or you will look silly.

I am aware that there are decisions to be made and that I should find my own way but sometimes I feel that the ones that should inspire me are unrealistic! What should I do to find outfits that suits me if not look in a magazine , TV, fashion shows and so on? What inspires you to dress fashionable but not ridiculous?

Don't translate the inspiration literally. Think about the feel the high fashion clothes give off. Look for something with a similar "feeling" that is more congruent to your life. It may be the color, print, material, general shape/cut, etc. but you can recreate the feeling without doing it in the over-the-top way that designers do on runways (which are essentially art shows). Magazines will do this a lot...they will show a pic of a runway look, and then show an item you can realistically buy that is derivative of that look, but not an exact replica. It's usually a more "practical" interpretation for the average person.

Also, don't wear too many unique/trendy things at once. Pair something special with classic pieces if you want to pull if off and not look too "out there".
