Fashion History, Doing it Yourself, and Breaking Stereotypes

Edited by: Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista

My first week editing the Links a`la Mode and it was such a pleasure to peruse the latest jewels from the blogosphere! Imagine viewing the history of fashion through the lens of a exhibition or a syllabus of what you wish was taught. How about taking inspiration from the latest Jeffery Campbell shoe and tricking out your own for less? Better yet, let’s talk about the “nude” trend and its color classification, and while we are at it, let’s question the newest movement in advertising campaigns: Unretouched and real beauty- a breakthrough or a publicity stunt? From fashion tips, finds, and favorite things, this week’s links a`la mode will satiate your hunger for full frontal fashion!

  1. Congrats on the IFB feature!
    I’m at work right now and I must say, I am so not in the mood to do anything today but read G&G. I’m thrilled your site does not using blogger or tumblr because the proxy here would have blocked it! I’m workin’ through your posts backwards. Let’s see how far I get before, god forbid, I am asked to do something else (like work) today! :o)

    I wanted to thank you again, chica, for the inspiration and support. Your post, “Photography for the Amateur, Stagefright-Afflicted Blogger, ” and another blogger who comments here have made me take a leap on something I had been teeter-tottering on for a few months now.
    Adding a style file to my blog.
    I am SO hesitant about doing this, but feel it’s time to take that plunge in order to move forward with my blog. I don’t think I’m very photogenic. BLAH! But, we’ll see how it goes…baby steps, yeah?

    Anywho, thank you for this loverly post on photography and the tidbits about picknik and everything else which has finally pushed me in the direction I need to go. I think I always knew it needed to happen.
