To me, fashion isn’t just about pulling off eclectically mixed and matched color palettes and patterns. I define fashion as the visual way I construct my reality — not only how I adorn my body, but also my bedroom, my notebooks, my garden. In this way, the things that I possess also possess a part of me. It’s about taking the inward and bringing it outward on visual terms….and I found some bloggers who seem to agree:
PLAY LIKE A GIRL
With many sections to choose from, I find “Un Peu de Paris” the most interesting and practical – Fanny posts photos of enticing window displays she stumbles upon in Paris. Great for when you want to do some serious armchair lèche-vitrines! Read more about Fanny in Flavor Magazine.
UNE ARMOIRE POUR DEUX
Run by two love birds: Vanessa, a photo stylist; and Kevin, a bookstore and gallery owner. It is easy to get smitten with their sweet adventures together: their journeys are well-documented in crisp photos complemented by fresh color choices.
Once a frustrated freelance illustrator, Garance Doré says she started her blog out of her desire to have more contact with the readers of magazines where she formerly worked.
Be sure to watch her video series Pardon my French – my favorite episode is “Fashion and Technology” where she films discussions she leads about how the two worlds collide.
Endorsed by the magazine Grazia, what I find special about this blog is that it provides something fashionable for everyone: you can read a post about arts and culture happenings in Paris, but follow it up with a listing of where to find the best Parisian fripperies—if half-priced Louboutins are more your thing, she’ll give you the hook up for that too! Don’t miss her hilarious “Polices du Style.”
This blog seals its spot on the list for its interesting content… and the simple fact that it started in Paris. Begun in 2006 by Yvan Rodic, Facehunter started by shooting photos of people whose faces Rodic found intriguing. As he traveled, the project grew and now it spans several cities. Watch a video of Yvan on the prowl.
