Tavi And Sea Of Shoes Party It Up For Halloween

Well, you can file this under “awesome costumes I should have thought of before.” Brad Goreski and a friend went to Lanvin’s Halloween party (um, jealous much?) dressed as America’s most loved fashion bloggers: Tavi and Jane Aldridge. If you’re playing Jane, all you need is a red wig and a super designer outfit (an easy cop-out if you just want to look cute). For Tavi: a couple weird layers of clothing, a crazy hair color, and a big-ass bow. [Show Ponies and Pretty People] Keep reading »

Is This The New Tavi?

Meet Milo Munshin, a 10-year-old boy from Long Island who is quickly rising in the ranks of young fashion bloggers. Thanks to his blog, Purple, he’s already getting linked to on the Huffington Post, sitting front row at shows, hobnobbing with Betsey Johnson and Zac Posen, and even being followed around by television crew for a possible series.

The Bell Jar Inspires A Fashion Collection

The awesome fashion blog Kingdom of Style always has something I’ve never seen before, and the latest is a series of fashions inspired by Sylvia Plath’s 1963 semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar. The line was designed by Jaggy Nettle, a Scotland-based design house. The cashmere sweater seen here and worn by Kingdom of Style blogger Queen Michelle was modeled after the 1966 Faber & Faber cover of The Bell Jar, the spiraling circles of which seem to allude to Plath’s descent into madness chronicled in the book. In any case, we like our literary allusions wearable. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »

Hey, Fashion Bloggers: Olivier Zahm Hates You And Wants To Kill You


Olivier Zahm, creator and editor of Purple magazine, Parisian hipster, and Lothario extraordinaire hates fashion bloggers. Here he is being interviewed at a fashion show with man-pal Terry Richardson. The interviewer asks Zahm who his favorite style blogger is. He responds, “I have no favorite blogger. I hate them. I am doing a blog to kill them all.” The name of this supposed blog? “Kill Them All.” Originale. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Teen Blogger Face-Off: Tavi Vs. Lourdes

For quite some time, Tavi’s reign as Queen Of The Mini Bloggers went largely unchallenged. Now, however, she’s got fierce competition in the form of Madonna progeny Lourdes, who’s taken to the net like a fish to water. So now, obviously, it’s time for a round of Teen Blogger Face-Off. May the best pint-sized soon-to-be fashion icon win! Keep reading »

Fashion Bloggers Mocking Fashion Bloggers

It’s fairly easy to make fun of the Rumis and Tavis of the world. When young and pretty fashion bloggers post self-styled photos, they become what I call “hate bait”: people bash on these fashion figures if not out of jealousy, then something a bit more misguided that stems from their own shortcomings. Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papace are two artsy French guys who, I think it’s fair to say, have little aspiration to make it onto Teen Vogue‘s next “bloggers to watch” list. Yes, they’re in the business of mocking fashion bloggers, but they do it artistically and wittily on their blog, Le Petit Écho Malade (which sort of translates into “the little sick echo”) by re-staging self-portraits and street snaps. While they’ve riffed off of some more iconic images like Tavi’s ginormous pink bow, you don’t really need to know the references in the rest of the photographs, just that the duo is copying an indulgent mentality. Case in point: A girl blogger poses coyly, looking like she’s on the verge of fainting, clad in bird-patterned tights. Le Petit Écho Malade’s translation: A dude looking surprised in a too-tight shirt and real birds attacking his tights. Sick. Check after the jump for some more images!

Plagiarism Claims Start Drama In The Fashion Blogger World

Fashionista recently published a list of the “Most Influential Personal Style Bloggers,” which included people like Tavi and Jane from Sea of Shoes. The post accumulated several comments, many of which were your run-of-the-mill positive “great list!” quips. However, one commenter took issue with the website’s picks, stating: “I’ve noticed that some blogs with larger audiences (a number of which are included in Fashionista’s list) often appropriate content from smaller blogs like the ones in the paragraph above. While being inspired by others is par for the course, what’s disturbing is that some of these widely read blogs do not feel the need to cite their sources. By omission, these popular blogs will claim the original ideas of others as their own.” Keep reading »

Chictopia Users Find Themselves Unexpectedly Starring In Payless Ads

We’re still trying to wrap our brains around the bizarre intellectual property fiasco brought about by Payless Shoes and Chictopia. In a nutshell, several fashion bloggers who posted their own self-styled photos to Chictopia (a social network that allows users to upload pics and engage in an online community) unexpectedly found themselves featured in a campaign for Payless. From the bloggers’ side of things, several expressed that they wouldn’t have been so disturbed had Chictopia informed them of what was going on, and if they’d done so, the bloggers might actually have been into the idea. In an article on the website International Fashion Bloggers, one girl involved explains:

“I wear Payless shoes and they’re a huge company with a lot of reach, so I was excited to have gotten their attention. Then, when I clicked through the campaign, it struck me that this was not a mutually beneficial situation. The only people who stood to gain traffic or profit from the campaign were Chictopia and Payless. I was really disappointed because I would have loved to work one-on-one with Payless on a campaign if they were interested in my personal style and my outfits featuring their shoes, but instead they cut me out and worked on a deal with Chictopia instead.”

Bring On The Big Girls

Blogs like Sea of Shoes and Fashion Toast are fun, but their wispy purveyors weigh a combined 25 pounds and it gets a little hard to imagine some of that style on a normal-sized person. We’re totally into the inspirational aspect of the sites, but pleasantly surprised to see a new wave of stylish bloggers more interested in being themselves than channeling models. We’ve seen enough blog posts about Crystal Renn to know that change is brewing, but it’s cool to finally see some bigger girls getting mainstream blog traction, too. We’ve got a huge collective girl crush on Gabi (left) of Young Fat and Fabulous and Fatshionable’s J. is kind of gorgeous with awesome skills in the flashy clothing department. Check out a full list of curvy lovelies with awesome clothes here. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
