Links a la Mode - IFB's Weekly Roundup


Edited by Jessie Thorpe of Denimology

"Summer is here and it's very exciting to see the change in everyone's wardrobe and more pop of color. Inspiration roams the streets at every corner! It's hypnotizing. It's hard to keep money in my pocket... I'm sure many of you can relate. Besides what I observe outside, Fashion blogs are a key influence to my style. Bloggers constantly make me smile from ear to ear and from season to season as I watch them transform.

I'm looking forward to flowing dresses, ripped up shorts, hot bright colors, basic tanks, bold accessories, This list might go on forever. Below you'll find a lot of food for thought."

What's This All About?

Every week, Independent Fashion Bloggers submit links to their best posts, and IFB's editors choose twenty links from those submitted. Every chosen blog publishes the whole list of links - and this week, one of my posts is featured! I can't tell you how absolutely delighted I am!

If you haven't tried submitting a post yet, but would like to, check out Vahni's explanation at Grit and Glamour - she even illustrated the steps with screenshots, cannot be easier! The only thing you need is a blogpost you want to share with other Independent Fashion Bloggers. :)
