Hey Guys!
I wrote a quick article for Essence.com on 10 Fashion Bloggers You Should Know:

Some faces may look familiar:)
I think it’s important to shine a light on those fashion bloggers who are super dope, but who may fly under the radar.
Click here to read up!

From breathtaking street shots to uniquely personal photos, these 10 bloggers are setting the Internet ablaze with their passion for fashion and all things chic.

Street Etiquette

-2
Bronx raised Travis Gumbs and Joshua Kissi are redefining urban style with their personal style blog, Street Etiquette. With a closet brimming over with oxfords, varsity jackets, and close creased pants (instead of low slung pants and white t-shirts) the clean cut pair photograph each of their looks, in vivid detail, all the while paying tribute to well-groomed style czars of the past.

They say, “We can’t help but be grateful we were raised in such a diverse city as New York.  By great chance we have this platform that gives us the opportunity to connect with millions of different individuals from all around the world. From a young male in Chicago to another young man in Amsterdam — all of these people relate to and connect on Street Etiquette.  I like to think we’re the new ambassadors of style.” streetetiquette.com


All the Pretty Birds

-2

Tamu McPherson of All the Pretty Birds shoots eye catching looks in the streets of Milan, New York, and Paris. Instead of simply snapping away, she speaks to her subjects, providing background details to accompany her stunning photographs.

The New York native currently lives in Milan, but travels the globe for freelance projects with Elle Italia, Refinery 29, Metro Newspaper, and Harper’s Bazaar.

Red Carpet Fashion Awards

-2

Need to know what your favorite starlets are wearing on the red carpet? Catherine Kallon can give you the scoop on her blog, Red Carpet Fashion Awards, thanks to her photographic memory and sincere love for runway collections.

The London-born, Sierra Leonean stylista worked at an ad agency and in event management before launching her highly popular blog in 2007. Now you can find her front row at Emilio Pucci in Milan, Lanvin in Paris, and at all the top shows in New York and London.

Jazzi Mc G

-5

Jazzie Mc G aka the “Queen of Do it Yourself,” shows off her closet full of refashioned vintage digs mixed in with designer brands on her self-titled online journal. About starting her blog, she says, “I was definitely going through a transitional period yet brimming with creativity and spending a lot of time on the web anyway… so I thought, why not have my own little e-corner to sort it all out?” jazzimcg.com

JC Report

-5

Jason Campbell of the JC Report offers a global view on fashion news and trends. He pushes outside the Milan, Paris, New York triangle to strike out in Japan and even Brazil.

Before starting his daily fashion news journal in 2002, he worked as an account executive at In the Mix Public Relations firm, introducing fashion great Alexander McQueen to the US market. A founding member of Flavorpill.net, Jason consults for brands like Piazza Sempione and the Limited, styles Vogue regulars like Wendy Murdoch, and writes for Style.com, the New York Times Magazine, and Surface. jcreport.com

Marian Kihogo

-5

Celebrity stylist and fashion writer Marian Kihogo used to collect all her images, texts, sketches, and pictures in a scrapbook-until she left the treasured item in a closet during a move and lost it forever. She was heartbroken, but quickly took to the web to construct a virtual version of her prized book, one she hopes she’ll never lose.
She says, “The contents of my blog are things I cannot wait to share with a close friend: that product, trend, label or talent that you go to bed thinking about and is still on your mind when you wake up.”

She describes her style as, “a car crash of 70’s luxe bohemia, sharp masculine tailoring, structure, texture and rock ‘n’ roll,” and can’t wait to get her hands on a camel Max Mara coat for fall.

Where Did U Get That?

-5

Brit Karen Blanchard of Where did u get that? flexes her inimitable style on her blog, incorporating crisp snapshot of her trips around the world. The edgy urbanista offers a trendy/boho take on American brands, spiced with English flair.

Mop Top Maven

-5

28-year-old Nikole Crow brings to light her personal style on The Mop Top Maven, and also offers hair and beauty advice, DIY projects, cooking tutorials, self help topics, and reviews on places to eat in her hometown of Los Angeles. She explains, “My blog is definitely an extension of me.”

The jewelry designer by day loves to blog and shop in her free time, and spends weekends tutoring at-risk teenage girls.  She says, “Nature, music, and art are amongst some of my biggest influences. Certain songs or images evoke different emotions and my choice of clothing or blog topics are greatly influenced by my interpretation of these sources of inspiration.”

His Hers Chicago

-5

Lori from LA has an enviable wardrobe full of vintage items, and photographs herself wearing them with the help of her photographer boyfriend, Michael Britton.  Her readers’ enthusiasm and feedback are constant motivations.
She explains, “After sharing my personal style through our photography, I began to receive requests from readers to share more on how I manage to easily find great pieces at amazing prices as well as how to create looks that fit their lifestyle. I decided to focus more on sharing tips that readers could use that have helped me in creating an eye that can find clothing everywhere from Goodwill to Forever 21 that look as though I spent top dollar on them.”

She turned her expert thrift shopping into a consulting business, which she does on the side while attending graduate school.

Swagger New York

-5

Bostonian Sian Pierre Regis seizes the best in street style with an urban edge on Swagger New York. He reveals, “I started Swagger because there were no sites speaking to the true urban style I was seeing on the streets of NYC and Paris. In ‘07, there were a host to celeb-driven sites and the Sartorialist had just begun to make its mark. So I thought why not display a site that gave a platform to the young and cool ’real’ people, one that was social-networking savvy, genuine, and totally fashion forward? And it struck a nerve.”

He continues, “I love spotting and talking to young people who feel great about who they are. Swagger aims to capture these kids in their most confident moment, while wearing clothes that speak to them. And the fact that we’re getting popular among the style set by applauding a young and very diverse demo, all that support keeps me pushing.”

Robyn – Indestructible

Robyn – Indestructible

Robyn’s final ‘Body Talk’ installment is going to be released soon and since I haven’t posted a music entry in the past few weeks so let me share you one of my favourite tracks in her album. This is an edit of ‘Indestructible’.

Robyn Indestructible

And I never was smart with love… I let the bad ones in and the good ones go but… I’m gonna love you like I’ve never been hurt before… I’m gonna love you like I’m indestructible. Your love is ultramagnetic, not again it’s taking over. This is hardcore…and I’m indestructible.

Amazing eh?

Good Advice, Bad Advice

Good Advice, Bad Advice

As strange as it sounds, I’m constantly inundated with emails from my readers asking for fashion advice. Advice on what to buy, advice on what to wear, advice on personal style, etc.

Me, Anna Piaggi and Anna Dello Russo at Emilio Pucci Spring/Summer 2011 Fashion Show

While I mostly blog about myself (and fashion), I find it funny that some come to me with their sartorial questions when I’m hardly fashionable or stylish myself. A relative once asked me why I like going out looking like a christmas tree.

I blog about “fashion”, yes, such as the things I like, the things I’ve seen, the things I’ve worn, etc.

However, giving advice is something I’m not good at. It’s also something I don’t want to do.

I hope you understand (and accept my apologies) if I don’t personally respond to your emails seeking advice because I cannot tell you what will look good on you without seeing let alone knowing you.

It wouldn’t make sense for me to dictate ‘ok this is what you should wear’ only for you to end up not liking it, or worse, thing that you’ll put on is not YOU.

Dressing up, to me, comes from within. The things that we put on our bodies should reflect ourselves: our mood, our emotions, our personality.

With that being said, there are many countless style blogs and magazines out there to draw inspiration from.

Me, on the other hand, I draw inspiration from myself. I know it’s narcissistic but you won’t see me collect photos of people to try to emulate them or add my own ‘twist’ to their looks.

I believe in individuality and being unique. Looking different to everyone regardless of the trend gets brownie points in my book. I like it when there’s something ‘not right’ or something ‘off’ or if I look ‘ridiculous’ to the eyes of others. Afterall, I dress for myself. Looking “perfect” is too easy. Take a look around and notice how beautiful people look these days? There are many, many, many beautiful individuals out there.

Unless you have your own personal style nailed down, it doesn’t hurt to play around with our looks and have fun in the process.

So go right ahead and play with fashion. Always remember individual style triumphs over conformity. Don’t forget to march to the beat of your own drum.

Video Diary – Walking, Hiking, Climbing, Maybe 69ing (NOT!)…

Walking, Hiking, Climbing, Maybe 69ing (NOT!)…

Not satisfied with the day trip I had on Saturday, the bf and I spent the whole Sunday walking around the suburbs. We went south, to the woods. Real woods with real trees, lakes (or river??), hills, etc. I’m the least outdoors-y person out there but our trip made me fall in love with mama nature.

Walking on Cobblestone

Walking on Cobblestone

At first I thought I’d wear a pair of high heels for our day trip but after three corns (I know, gross), rough feet and more than a month of wearing them non-stop, I wore these super comfy shearling-lined Burberry Prorsum boots from their Fall/Winter 2010 collection.

Heels make great photographs yes, but sometimes, common sense prevails.

Royal Gripsholm Castle, Sweden

Royal Gripsholm Castle, Sweden

Maria picked me and the bf early in the morning to go to Mariefred, a Swedish town 65 kilometers outside Stockholm, where the Royal Gripsholm Castle is located.

Inside the Royal Gripsholm Castle you’ll find the National Portrait Collection (of Sweden, duh) spanning over 4,000 paintings starting from the 1500s and onwards.

Pictures to follow.

Not for Cameras, Bye

Not for Cameras, Bye

Trust me, Swedish is quite possibly the most difficult language to learn.

The best way to learn any language, whether it’s French or Norwegian, is to practice it with a native to get the right pronunciations. Both friends and the bf have been teaching me Swedish words. It’s the bf’s turn this time around and I recorded our conversation when we walked from the train station to his flat.

What to Wear: “Chanel N°5 And Nothing Else”

What to Wear: “Chanel N°5 And Nothing Else”

I spent the whole day out with the bf and one of his friends on a trip (more on that later) and after cake and tea at Taxinge Slott (aka Taxinge Castle), the bf interviewed me for shits and giggles.

Fun times. 🙂

Yesterday’s Dinner

Yesterday’s Dinner

One of the bf’s friends invited us for an initimate dinner yesterday at his lovely home. I must say it was one of the best dinners I had. Everything was perfect; our host was a complete gentleman.

After our meal, he played the piano… we stayed at his place for five hours, until 1AM… it’s a miracle that we made it on the long train ride home.

Can You Hypnotize a Chicken?

Can You Hypnotize a Chicken?

When I went to Stockholm in August, my friend Elin told me she hypnotized a chicken on Swedish TV a few years ago.

We found the video last night during dinner and I thought it was amazing.

After the Valentino show, I rushed backstage to greet Pier Paolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri.

Photographers went wild when the man himself, Valentino Garavani, greeted the couple.
