Now, in this new era of online fashion frenzy, almost every girl who can match a pair of jeans and a shirt and head to Walmart, wants to be called a fashion blogger. Fashion blogging is more than a selfie with a good filter or “look at my new crop top! I finally got the money to get my dd’s done.
Why do I follow what I follow, because I dig different, edgy yet still simple, girls who indeed are very pretty but keep their style and their heads on the ground. I want to relate to you, I am not a Kim K follower type, I refuse to live my life through you. Your photos to Paris, your stays at the Ritz for fashion week… very nice, yet I find myself somewhere in Chicago or San Diego dreaming at my boring office job to be you? Nay!
Which takes me to these three ladies, who are doing a phenomenal job. keeping me entertain and confident. I find myself collecting ideas for my next outfits, learning where to get those awesome rips, or maybe how to rock that romper I always thought would make me look like a taco shell.
She is just so adorbs! I think 2253 followers on Insta just doesn’t do it for me, Jamie Lee is just one of the coolest, be yourself bloggers out there. It’s like having a BFF somewhere in US and to know she is just an ipad away. I like her casual, urban style, how she shares the simplest things in life in an adorable top.Her posts are not about rubbing in your face how pretty she is, I feel is about staying true to yourself in style, being a wife, mom and blogger and look absolutely fabulous every time. check out all the looks she posted this holiday season on instagram and follow the link to her blog.
If you are anything like me, this is the kind of fashion blogs you follow, women who are beautiful and were gifted with a sense of logical style and fashion. You don’t want to follow someone you’ll never be, you want to follow someone who will make beautiful, who you already are. You need ideas that are achievable, outfits that you can find in your own closet, tips that will apply to you! and I feel this is what Rita is all about.
Hair and Skin care, styles for every season, what to wear, what not to, and I do not know who takes her pictures but they are stunning! I would definitely follow her on Insta, Facebook and on her blog, no wasted time here.
Drums and Trumpets here please!
Now, I don’t always follow self made “branded” bloggers but when I do it’s usually because they are too awesome to resist.
Let me start by blaming Shalice for introducing me to the #AEOSTYLE movement, since I am not a believer in the commercial spirit of Christmas, here I am, few pairs in hand, ready to welcome some rips into my life, standing in the store cash register line 20 minutes later. I got to say they don’t look as good as in the picture. Got them anyways.
Bloggers who sell me things are usually not my cup of tea, but for this blogger I would have a few cups.
Her style is edgy, risky, interesting, leaves you thinking for hours how to get that look! she makes the simplest thing into the matrix movie of fashion.
It’s true, I have unfollowed all bloggers who I think need a burger more than blogging, but @shalicenoel is so worth it! She is a classic. At her blog you can shop, get tips, gift guides, I mean it’s like going to fashion land online, like Disney for strange ladies like me who don’t like Disney. I’m telling ya, if you visit her once you won’t stop going back.
Kudos to all these Fashion Blogging ladies who fill my office hours with looks to think about, can’t think of anything better.
And that is it… I went from hating fashion blogs because of their commercial purpose to letting these ladies manage part of my wardrobe. At the end, we all love fashion, we want to look good and I’m open to follow anyone who shares that passion as long as I am always true to myself and my own style.
