Links à la Mode : The IFB Weekly Roundup

Independent Fashion Bloggers

Go Fashion Bloggers, Go!
Edited by Debutante Clothing

As more and more print magazines fold, bloggers seem to be growing in professionalism and media legitimacy. When bloggers such as Previously Owned and kaKofonie Of si(gh)lenS can get the scoop on international designers, you know the fashion playing field is being leveled. If bloggers can host great giveaways like Retro Chick’s, I wonder why the FTC needs to play big brother. Fashion Pulse Daily wants to know if you even care. It seems we are becoming the pretty, little websites that could. Yay bloggers!

    here is my prediction and, what i’ve just added to the wardrobe:
    scotland/ireland. solid wool sweaters with brown leather suspenders, calf-length wool schoolgirl skirts OR boyfriend cut jeans barely hanging on by suspenders and rolled up loosely to calf-length. wool socks, not solid, loosely scrunched little girl-style with bangin’ shoes, my personal fav will be granny-style low heels. also, thick collared oxford button-up shirts w/button-up vest, possibly herringbone, again, wool.. let the suspenders hang on the sides, tuck a solid tie into the vest. rock a sweet hairstyle and no chance of being labeled preppy, i like to trade the nose stud for a hoop on these days.
    guess i’m saying, “WOOL” – shaving a sheep doesn’t hurt a sheep, the farm actually keeps it alive… so, I’m guessing you’re okay with wool, maybe not. in that case, replace every “wool” with “synthetic thick material” 🙂

      I think wool is fine! I completely love the visual I’m getting from this – just unpacked my thick-late fall/winter wardrobe and now I’ve got some inspiration to mix with some staples I’ve collected. Love! Thanks!!! 🙂
