Every week members of Indpendent Fashion Bloggers are invited to submit their best post of the week for the Links à la Mode which then gets posted around the blogs of all those involved. I am delighted to say that not only have I made this weeks (yay!) but next month I'll be put on rotation for editing the links myself. I feel honoured to have been chosen, and though I am slightly worried about choosing out of such strong blog posts I am incredibly excited!
http://heartifb.com/ is having a little maintenance to keep it shiny at the moment but should be back tomorrow. I really recommend joining as it's such a lovely and interesting community I've learnt so much from.
Fashion History, Doing it Yourself, and Breaking Stereotypes
Edited by: Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista
My first week editing the Links a`la Mode and it was such a pleasure to peruse the latest jewels from the blogosphere! Imagine viewing the history of fashion through the lens of a exhibition or a syllabus of what you wish was taught. How about taking inspiration from the latest Jeffery Campbell shoe and tricking out your own for less? Better yet, let’s talk about the “nude” trend and its color classification, and while we are at it, let’s question the newest movement in advertising campaigns: Unretouched and real beauty- a breakthrough or a publicity stunt? From fashion tips, finds, and favorite things, this week’s links a`la mode will satiate your hunger for full frontal fashion!
