Featured on Links à la Mode: 18th February

One of the benefits of blogging is being part of a global community, discovering new blogs and celebrating the enormous diversity of bloggers that are out there.  It’s why from time to time I submit a post to Independent Fashion Bloggers as it’s a great way to meet other bloggers and read posts I wouldn’t necessarily find on my own trawls around the internet.

And if along the way, your post actually gets chosen to be included in the weekly Links à la Mode  round up, then that’s a wee bonus on top!  Thanks to Lisa at IFB for including my post.

And if you happened to miss my original post on 15 Reasons to Wear a Beret, then here’s the chance to read and learn why I wear so many berets in my blog posts!

I particularly enjoyed reading Norbyab’s post of mixing print on print, as this will inspire me to be bolder with my pattern mixing.

And if, like me, you own a bouclé jacket, and get frustrated at what to do when it snags, then you’ll want to read Christie’s neat way of fixing them!

All the links are below so dive in and discover some new blogs!

Lisa Walker writes: Recently, I was able to watch Dior and I from start to finish without interruption {Happy Valentine’s Day to me}. What impressed me most wasn’t the immaculately designed line, the beautiful venue, the craft of the atelier, it was the tears that Raf Simons fought back at the beginning of his showing. I can only guess that it was the culmination of many factors attributed to a high pressure position, but what also translated to me was a love and commitment to Dior… the brand, the people, and the man. As I write this my eyes are welling up just recalling that part of the documentary.

IFB Bloggers were also on top of their game this week with so many wonderful and varied posts to choose from. Topics ranged from trends, women’s fashion styling, the business of blogging, how-to’s, fashion industry, the Grammy’s, and of course New York Fashion Week. There were also quite a few of you who didn’t want to talk about fashion at all. You had cake, dogs, Black History Month, and love on the brain. After the month we’ve had already, who wouldn’t?

And incase you’re not a boob like me, Everyday Starlet explains why it’s OK if you don’t cry {when you say yes to the dress}.
