My Favourite Blogs

Of course I follow multiple blogs, and I find each of them have something to offer. There is, however, a difference between the okay blogs I follow, and the amazing blogs I follow. In this post I will explain why you should read them, and why they stand out in the crowd.

The Sartorialist

The Sartorialist inspires me because of the artistic value of the photographs. I don't go to his blog to find the latest runway style, or because the clothing in the photos are intrinsically beautiful. What intrigues me about his photos are the context and the story behind them. Anyone can wear a crazy outfit and take a photograph of it, but few can make art of it. I don't consider The Sartorialist a fashion blog, so much as a visual account of human nature. Also, as one can see from the design of my blog, I don't shy away from colour and pattern. I find too many bloggers take the minimalist white-on-white approach, which can get a little monotonous. However, The Sartorialist uses white to its complete advantage. Because of the power and impact of the photographs, the minimalist design allows the the images to shine.

Style Bubble

To be honest, Style Bubble is actually my ideal of a fashion blog, it's my inspiration in terms of what I want my blog to be. The posts on Style Bubble are always done with a certain level of professionalism found on few other blogs. Reading one of her posts is more like reading an article in a fashion magazine. In fact, I find reading Style Bubble more satisfying than reading a big name magazine like Vogue or Elle (on which there will be a post soon). Susie is able to incorporate her own personal style into her posts without focusing solely on her clothes. Some of the more interesting posts I find, are the ones on young, up and coming fashion design students. I find it difficult to get proper information on fashion, and the young up and coming talent in popular fashion editorials, so for this, I go to Style Bubble.

Atlantic-Pacific

There is no better blog than Atlantic-Pacific to get a straight up dose of fashion inspiration. Each outfit is carried out with such perfection and attention to detail. There is no denying that this woman is a fashionista in its truest sense. Her outfits are glam, but are often quirky and colourful to make it feel fun and easy. While Style Bubble sets my standards for writing, Atlantic-Pacific sets my standards for a outfit posts. Atlantic-Pacific is also unique because of the lack of words. Blair lets her photos speak for her, which is a refreshing difference from so many blogs that manage to write a lot without saying anything.
