This weekend, I decided to cull my Google Reader of all the fashion blogs that I no longer read. I eliminated a few because I never see anything on their sites that I can afford. Others got the boot because they no longer post with regularity. And several more were chucked because continuing to read them seemed rather fruitless. (Seriously, how many times can Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere rearrange the furniture in her house during a calendar year?)
So I thought, that I might dedicate a post to listing some of my favorite blogs, and allow y’all to suggest some new ones for me to read in the comments.
Jean at Extra Petite is one of my favorite bloggers on the Interwebs. She posts clothes that women can afford, and she believes in the power of Ebates, what’s not to love? I appreciate the time she puts into her posts and I think her professional style advice is applicable to women in many different career fields.
Mizhattan is a fantastic blog. Her weekly outfit sets are creative, fashion forward and always give me a lot of great ideas. And if you live in NYC, or within driving distance of NYC, her sample sale coverage is unbeatable. Sometimes, I think she should open a tour guide company for women who want to come to NYC just to hit up the designer sample sales.
Style is about using fashion to display who you are on the inside. John Jannuzzi, the author of Textbook, uses designer clothing to make literary characters three dimensional. What would Dominique Francon or Eleanor of Aquitaine wear? Jannuzzi’s posts give you a peak into these characters and his own imagination.
Is yogurt a natural exfoliant? Where can you find a list of cosmetic ingredients? The answers to these questions and more can be found on The Beauty Brains. So if you’ve ever had a beauty question that needed a more scientific answer, then this is the site for you.
So what are your favorite style blogs? I would really appreciate some new reading material, so leave your suggestions in the comments.
