I have been reading fashion blogs for about four years now. I happened on them in some article, in some magazine, can’t remember which. What I do remember is thinking: “Cool. People do this?” The article had a list of the “top ten fashion blogs.” I started reading them—those and more—everyday. Now, it’s my coffee cup and my favorite peeps. Today I present you with a few of them.
I usually have a certain order in which I visit. Sometimes I do mix it up a bit, but I always start with Garance Doré. She’s my lady. Read her and you’re reading someone who just plain loves not just fashion—but life.
Then I move on to The Sartorialist. (Now, the man behind The Sartorialist, Scott Schuman, is in a relationship with Garance Doré, but I am not authorized to write about that. What I can do, is show you a picture of Scott Schuman that I took.
This is a lousy picture and I know it. I’m not yet a great photographer, but Mr. Schuman is; please check his work out. I show the picture because I love the pose, if I can call it that, and I loved that The Sartorialist agreed to let me take a picture of him.)
Last on my list today is, the man repeller. Leandra Medine is The Man Repeller, and as the name of her blog suggests, we are talking attitude here. But not asshole attitude (not to worry, Leandre herself sometimes has a potty mouth)—a no-holds-barred, fantastic, beautiful, wonderful, human woman attitude. She also happens to be a great writer.
