This Week in Chic #1


Sara, your editor, here. Something I have neglected to share with everyone is that I frequently spend time hanging out with some really terrific fashion bloggers talking design and style (well, “hanging out” in the digital sense). I’m going to share some links from these ladies that I think you’ll enjoy. Now, I’m the greenie of the bunch, so while the links I’m sharing from my blogging pals are not always green, they do offer interesting trends, looks, and creative insights. I’ll suggest a green alternative when appropriate, but I thought it would be fun to give you a little peek into the percolator.

-The stylish Sarah-Jean of the Fashionable Housewife wants you all to know about a contest to win a piece of jewelry you’ll cherish: a simple and elegant infinity twist necklace. Though it’s not recycled, it’s a versatile piece that converts from necklace to bracelet, doubling your possibilities.

-Stylista Yuli of My It Things wants to get us all trying out the latest trend: colorblock clothing. She has some great looks to share. For an eco colorblock choice, I recommend this striking dress by Viridis.

-Lesley of Fashion Tribes is a girl after my own heart – she blurs the line between decor and fashion in such an inspired way. I don’t watch much television so I haven’t seen Gossip Girl, but I love how Lesley translates a chic apartment into great wardrobe ideas.

-At Fashion Pulse you can get an advanced look at the Spring 2009 Collection from Zac Posen. Love him or hate him (hey, at least he’s designed a Sigg bottle), he’s one of the young leaders in fashion right now. What do you think?

-The fashion-addicted and always unique Fashion Fille has just written her 100th post. Check it out! Some interesting personal musings on fashion and style at the intersection of blogging.

Now, dear reader, if you’re new to reading blogs, you’re in for a good time. The great thing about a blog is that you can comment on posts, which is sort of like gossiping around the water cooler only without the weird guy who picks his ear trying to crash the conversation. Remember the frustration of hunting around websites for an email address to ask a question? These days you just type right onto the page and a conversation is born. In fact, I hope you’ll go visit all these bloggers and say hello, right now. How often does an editor actually ask you to leave her page? Scoot!
