Blogs on our radar – part 1

News

No matter what makes your fashion heart beat, there’s a blog (or several) out there that can make you grin with nothing more than a refresh of their homepage.

We rejoice in reading a good blog, or ogling jaw-dropping photography, so from now on we’ll be regularly filling you in on which blogs have popped up on our radar. There are so many brilliant blogs worth browsing, but we thought we’d start with six that keep us coming back for all different reasons.

Here they are, in no particular order:

A PAIR AND A SPARE BLOG

No fashion blog list would be complete without this remarkable body of work from Geneva Vanderzeil. A PAIR AND A SPARE is an inspiring hub of DIY fashion. From clothes and shoes to jewellery and accessories, after reading just one post you’ll convince yourself a hammer and pliers are all you need to see you through the next season. Beautiful images, lots of wow factor.

ALICE LIDDELL BLOG

Previously of WANT WHAT SHE’S WEARING, Rachel Yabsley decided to uproot her fashion musings and photography and create the ALICE LIDDELL BLOG late in 2012. She has an effortless way with words and posts a mix of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and personal accounts. Rachel has a great eye and the website is clean and clutter free.

STYLING YOU BLOG

STYLING YOU by Nikki Parkinson is a veritable goldmine of practical information, tips and tricks on how to look good and feel great. This blog doesn’t pretend to be high fashion or exclusive, it’s completely accessible to every woman. The design is fun, the prose is personable (and perfect) and most of all you really feel like you’re part of a big, loving community.

SPIN DIZZY FALL BLOG

She’s young, gorgeous and has a vibrant, unique sense of style – of course we’re not jealous! Emma Lucey is the blogger behind SPIN DIZZY FALL. We’re getting a kick out of her old meets new fashion combos, her beaming enthusiasm and her slick images. Candy for the eyes.

CHARCOAL ALLEY BLOG

Set your spirit free and take a trip to CHARCOAL ALLEY. Paris Gerrard is the creator of this superb blog. You’ll continuously be surprised and amazed by the riveting images. They define a whole new league of feminine strength and beauty. Her edits are edgy, bohemian, worldly, dazzling and dreamy. The jewellery alone will take your breath away.

LEE OLIVEIRA BLOG

If you love to people watch then you’ll adore LEE OLIVEIRA’S BLOG. A master of street style photography, Lee captures magical fashion moments on some of the most delicious streets all over the world. We challenge any style hunter to try and tear yourself away from this site. The fashion is incredible and the photography is mind-blowing.

So there it is, our first list of brilliant blogs, but don’t worry there’s a lot more to come.
