My 10 Favorite Fashion Blogs

My blog is truly my biggest passion.  Through Aspiring Socialite, I’ve met some of the most interesting people who I now consider my close friends.  It’s also literally opened doors for me at some of New York’s most exclusive events.  If you’re thinking about starting a blog, I 100% suggest you do.  Though I’m obsessed with creating my own content, I’m also a regular blog reader.  So, today, I’m giving credit where credit is due by giving a shout out to the blogs that inspire me.

Here are my favorite fashion blogs (in no particular order) that I read on almost a daily basis:

1. Cupcakes and Cashmere: Armed with breathtaking images and a beautiful outlook on life, Emily Schuman is the ultimate fashion, food, and lifestyle blogger who brings out the California girl in all of us.

2. The Budget BabeDianna Baros is living proof that everyone can be “Fab Without A Fortune.”  This Mom to be has created an empire around stylish women looking to stretch a dollar.

3. Fashion Wrap Up: Fashion Wrap Up is a chic fashion blogazine out of St. Louis, Missouri founded by Christy Pastore.  I love her take on red carpet fashion.

4. Lauren Conrad: From not so humble beginnings on The Hills, Lauren Conrad has built an adorable and engaging online community that pays homage to her personal style.  I especially love her beauty tips and DIY projects.

5. Penny Pincher Fashion: I’ve emailed back and forth with Kim from PPF a few times and she is the sweetest person ever!  She also has an amazing blog and always looks beautiful modeling the most stylish, yet affordable looks.

6. Ramshackle Glam: I met Jordan at a few blogger events back when I first started blogging and she was always super nice and supportive.  Her blog is a great mixture of fashion, food, advice, and now parenting.  It’s always a blast to read about Jordan’s adventures.

7. Always Judging: I connected with Courtney on Twitter a while back and I’ve been obsessed with Always Judging ever since.  I wish I knew who takes her photos because they are amazing.  I’m still in the market for a talented personal photographer.

8. Poor Little It Girl: Poor Little It Girl is truly a kindred spirit to Aspiring Socialite.  I’m a huge fan of Cathy Anderson’s style and her commitment to keeping things under $100.

9. Refinery29: I love Refinery29 for not only being one of the greatest sources of fashion news, but also for being so much more than just a fashion blog.  They also have a strong focus on current events, politics, and pop culture.  The number 29 in the website’s title is said to have come from a psychic vision.  When the founders asked a psychic if they would be successful in creating a site, the psychic saw great success and the number 29.

10. Fashionista is the ultimate source of fashion news and analysis.  We must share the same taste in high fashion because I tend to agree with the majority of their collection reviews.
