Welcome my ladies, I´d love to share with the you some great blogs i´ve discovered in the Independent Fashion Bloggers Community. There is so much diversity and uniqueness i had to share it and have a word on it! I´ve selected my top five, and I´ll be featuring them this week. Get to know a little about the authors and check their blogs.
Hope u enjoy them as much as i do!
Name: Alci Morales
Country: El Salvador
Four words that describe you: girly, always wanting to try something new in fashion, animal print lover and shopaholic. Those were like 15 words sorry lol.
What do you blog about: my (not so) daily affordable outfit
Why did u started blogging: I got inspired when I got to see one of me best friend´s blog. And I confess, it took me months deciding whether I should start one of my own, maybe I´m a little bit shy sometimes..
Favorite item in your closet: Oh man this one is hard! But I must say my pink jeans from Zara (SS11)
Dream wish listed item: Louboutin shoes
Favorite designer/store: Definitelly Zara and F21, and designer it would be Michael Kors or Alexander Wang.
Shoes: pumps or flats? Flats, Comfort is very important to me. Even though I always wear pumps to go out at night, but I always carry flats in my bag just in case.
One Fact/thing you hate: I hate that I can´t wear winter clothes! I live in Central America where 85ºF is the rule all year round.
One Fact/thing you love: I love starting my day by browsing new inspirational blogs and checking my follower’s and favorite blogger´s updates.
Advice: Well.. I always say this and I know its a cliche and that everybody says the same thing but its also very true. Girl if you ain´t walking with all your confidence in you, you’re not walking at all. Confidence is everything! No matter if you’re wearing an expensive dress or shoes, but if you don’t have confidence you will never rock it.
Your favorite own blog post: Pink+Grey+Animal Print! Two of my favourite for this season: pink and leo print. I love feeling girly and how can you not with pink?
Anything else u love to share: Why compare yourself with others? No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you…
Name: Kristin Eichenberg
Country: United States
4 words that describe you: Driven, Creative, Fashionable, Sarcastic
What do you blog about: I blog mostly about fashion and my styled outfits, but i also love to show photography inspirations, music, and anything else that sparks my interest! Thats the nice thing about having your own blog.. anything goes.
Why did u started blogging: I started as a creative outlet. When looking through countless blogs, i figured why not try it myself? As i did, i have actually grown to enjoy it a lot as a hobby, and as practice for my future i hope to have in fashion! Although my followers are limited, I do it because I love it.
Favorite item in your closet: A two way tie between my button up crop top and my destroyed light wash denim shorts! I'm all into showing off the belts too..
Dream wish listed item: Theres so many that I would die to have! But at the moment, i am DYING for some leather shorts. When i tell people this, they usually think hoochie..but i
am talking about ones like these Kelly Bergin beauts: http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/114900. Anyone have 430 dollars to spare?
Favorite designer/store: Although: I'm not someone who can afford designers, i really love Proenza Schouler. As a close substitute, i shop at Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, and of course the one and only Salvation Army! You can still have a good fashion sense without the big bucks.
With shoes: Pumps or Flats? Flats, because in a small town in Minnesota they are much more practical. I dont hesitate to slip on a wedge though! Thats my happy medium.
One fact/thing you hate (about life or anything): I guess you can call this a pet peeve, but i hate when people leave their sentences unfinished... Like my mom will start talking and then....
One fact/thing you love (about life or anything): I love the summer. Pretty much everything about it : the river, parties, campfires, getting tan, amazing weather, vacations, lazy days, shorts, sandals, shorts, swimsuits...everything!
Advice for other bloggers: If anything, keep the look of your blog on the simple side. The blogs that get my attention are ones that are uncluttered and easy on the eyes! It puts more of the focus on the pictures and the writing you have to offer. Also, make sure your pictures are good quality! And stick with it even if the followers don't come right away. Some things take time.
Your favorite own blog post: My favorite blog post is usually my most recent one! Right now that would be this one here: http://somesummertimeclothes.blogspot.com/2011/06/heres-quick-look-at-some-of-my-things.html#more
It mostly shows my accesories that i have been sporting recently, but also just some of the things i have around! I thought it would give my readers an idea of the kind of taste I have..
Anything else u love to share?
So far, networking for this new blog has been exhausting.. So i'd like to give a big round of applause to those bloggers out there who live normal lives but can hold an audience of 1,000 + people! Its harder than it looks, and even the smallest amount of follwers is rewarding..Thanks to everyone who has followed my blog :)
Kristin Eichenberg I wish u the best with your blog and all your proyects i´m following your blog so i´ll keep in touch!
