London-based blogger Susie Lau is the lady behind Susie Bubble, one of the first, and best, style blogs on the web. Susie’s imprint is all over the fashion world: You can find her in the front row at every fashion week, plus she’s constantly collaborating with designers and writes a style column for The Guardian. Recently, The Coveteur visited Susie and photographed her extensive and enviable closet — and we just had to share. Check out her full closet on their site.
Having your own fashion blog as your job seems kind of like one of those dream professions like modeling or acting where all you do all day is put together cute outfits and take pictures of yourself in them. The difference is that successful models get paid. A lot. That’s not so evident with independent fashion bloggers who might have a huge following but don’t seem to actually do much.

She’s done a much better job with presenting the fashions, going monochromatic, or putting two bright colors together.
We’re still not sure, however, if the corduroy wares look better on Bubble because of the cool choices she paired them with, or if they’re worth it as stand-alone items. Check out some more pics after the jump. What do you think? [Style.com] Keep reading »

Here’s a super cute preview from Daydream Nation‘s A/W 09 collection titled “Letters to Paul.” The goods are inspired by correspondence of the brother/sister design duo’s father, so maybe snail mail will come back into fashion now?
