Blogger Crush | Rima Vaidila of Fire on the Head

whitedenim

I’m so intrigued by the world of modeling. Especially when told from behind the scenes. That means that I’m a shoe in for any type of reality show having to do with anything in modeling. Just the other day I happened to stumble along the blog, Fire on the Head by a model named Rima Vaidila in California. One of the amazing aspects of finding a model’s blog is that it serves as inspiration in the fashion area and discovering a new muse.  Check out Rima’s amazing simplistic style with an edge just sharp enough to have you guessing.

Menswear Monday: Tony Stone

AntoineMorning-3_zpsd63f782d

I first fell in love with blogger Tony Stone’s style through his girlfriend’s blog, Adeline Rapon.  The are based in Paris and have the coolest style I have ever seen. French grunge chic is the exact way I’d describe it. Their take on fashion is a more polished version of the bohemian grunge lifestyle.

Since this is about menswear, Tony has spot on style. Everytime I read the blog each outfit is so well displayed and put together. From his signature black brimmed hat, black boots, and scarves I’m inspired by each and every look. I’m sure his blog will become a new menswear addiction.

Blogger Crush: Emelie Eng of Billy Tilly

20130421-223449

Swedish blogger Emelie Eng is pretty much one of the coolest chicks ever. Not only does she live in Sweden (where I’m dying to go), but she also influenced by the heavy metal scene in Stockholm. Awesome. Her blog, Billy Tilly is one of my go-to bookmarks when looking for outfit inspiration. You’ll fall in love with her style too. I’m sure.

Just the other week on VH1 I was watching a documentary asking the question whether ‘grunge’ belongs in the evolution of metal? In the end it was decided that it had absolutely nothing to do with metal but was more of a reaction to the genre itself. Still however it produced a badass subculture that I just love.

Blogger Crush: Thelma Romu

IMG_3221

There are some blogs that stay in my bookmarks forever. I’ve been following Thelma of thelmanblogi for about 2 years now. One of the interesting aspects about the blogging world is seeing style evolution from all over the world. I love her 90s grunge wild child style that she always shows in every photo. Thelma comes from Finland, and naturally I’m obsessed with Scandinavia in general so her style is just the spark that ignites my bookmark feed on the regular.

Bookshelf: Fashion Blogs

img120

“Fashion Blogs” was one of the first books to really explore the booming industry of fashion blogging. I first heard about this book in 2011 and it was one of the hardest to track down. It sold out faster than anyone could have ever imagined, so I after months of eBay stalking I emerged victorious. It’s great to see that so many of these fire starters of the blogosphere are still going strong.

Since it’s release in 2010 the world of fashion blogging has grown more than anyone expected. This book profiles blogs in different categories; news and views, seen on the streets, personal style diaries, creatures of the night, and what about the boys? Here is one from each section of this truly inspiring book on the beginning of the fashion blog craze.

Blogger Crush: Margaux Lonnberg of thekillingmoonconfused

-1

A few weeks ago I found this incredible blog, thekillingmoonconfused. Written by Parisian based Margaux Lonnberg who dreams of nothing more than leaving the somewhat gloomy skies of Europe to the sun drenched locale of the West Coast. She has a simplistic style with a bohemian edge that I’m super obsessed with. I like to think of her as a Parisian version of Erin Wasson, one of my favorite models. Now Margaux has a clothing line, music video, and she provides endless doses of inspiration.

Style Like U did a profile on her a few years back and it’s one of the best features I’ve ever seen. Hopefully I’ve given you yet another blog to add to your bookmarks.

Blogger Style File: Minnie of MoiMinnie

supportfab-moiminnieSome of the blogs that I love the most are very minimal. There is something more to be said when there is less to distract your eye and mind from clutter. Minnie Johnson of Moi Minnie is a photographer from Serbia and is one of the latest blogs that I’ve  added to my Google Reader. She posts various outfits, but also some great DIY tutorials and samples of her own photographs. Everything from her style to her dramatic hair changes keep me coming back for more inspiration. I’m sure you’ll be running back too.
