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 (a…

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 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…

Chictopia Users Find Themselves Unexpectedly Starring In Payless Ads

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 blogger…

Quotable: Fashion’s Voice Of Reason

“But there’s also something beautiful about these fresh voices that can say something that maybe sometimes someone who does have a lot of credibility misses, or they see it through a really fresh eye. I think that’s the debate that is going on in our industry full-stop, because we don’t want to discredit years and…

Fashion Bloggers Can Cast CFDA Ballots … If They Ask Nicely

It’s official: Fashion bloggers are taking over the world and are infiltrating all areas of the industry. And you thought it was only about fame and free stuff? (Note: Wait, technically I guess I’m a fashion blogger, and I don’t even get those things.) Apparently, some of these lucky bloggers will get to vote o…

Do You Find The Term “Bligger” Offensive?

What’s a “bligger”? Fashion blogger Susie Bubble posts the following to her Twitter: “just to add bliggers = bloggers and liggers, en-us translation meaning ppl who love freebies and general hanging-on.” In America, this newfangled slang term rhymes with a highly offensive word. However, in British slang, a “ligger” is someone who is a freeloader.

When Fashion Bloggers Hit Big … Are They Still The Same Bloggers?

In case you haven’t noticed, fashion blogging has reached new heights of celebrity and popularity. What started out as a wholly indie movement—girls discussing fashion on their Live Journals, or posting pics through a Blogger account to share with friends—has now turned into a veritable “field.” To begin a fashion blog nowadays often isn’t just

Stylish Teens We’re Jealous Of (& Ones We Could Do Without)

Ahh…to be young again. Not that we’re old here at The Frisky, but recently we’ve been wishing we were back in high school, and it has nothing to do with the wars between the popular kids, acne, or peer pressure. Rather, now more than ever, teens are making headlines for being awesome. While we were…
