Fashion Spotlight: Fashion Bloggers Part One

I started blogging after reading my friend's personal/travel blog, I had no idea that is was essentially a little world with its own "celebrities", and that bloggers were so influential that you could find them in front row of catwalks. Blogging quickly became my new obsession, I liked the sense of community and the freedom of expression (which is a polar opposite to the writing I'm used to as a Psych student which is very objective and follows the strict guidelines of APA). So this post is dedicated to fashion bloggers about fashion bloggers, and written with bloggers in mind. Hope you learn from these fellow bloggers how to grow your own blog as they have theirs. Thank you to La Societe de ModeObsession Isnt Just a PerfumeFashion Whore  The Sydney Girl for taking part. Part One features The Sydney Girl and La Societe de Mode, I'll be posting the second and final part next week.



What has kept you fashion blogging?
Sydney Girl: I love being creative with makeup, hair styling and what I wear. Blogging about it helps me express that creativity and share it with others. I also love my readers, and that has also kept me blogging.
La Society de Mode: We are so inspired by the world of fashion and blogging is a way to stay connected with it. We feel as though updating our blog is like writing in a journal; it's something you just gotta do for yourself.  
How did you build your fellowship?
Sydney Girl: Mostly commenting back when someone comments on my blog. I think it is important for bloggers to develop a nice interaction with their readers.
La Societe de Mode: We commented on blogs and posts we genuinely liked and just hoped our blog would be good enough to attract readers
What do you think makes your fashion blog unique?
Sydney Girl:  I try to add a particular freshness to it which gives it my own twist. I try to be creative and let the rest go from there.
La Societe de Mode: We think that our interviews make us unlike any other fashion blog out there. We're obessed with talking to other industry professionals and networking. Also, we're the only street style fashion blog of Rennes, France that we know of!
You have ads/sponsors on your blog, how did this come about? Also would you recommend monetising to other fashion bloggers?
Sydney Girl: Making money on a blog is really an individual thing. I think you need to establish why you have your blog. Is it to make money or is it share your passion for fashion with others? I think advertising and sponsors come handy when your blog has an extremely high volume of readers. 
I don't have any ads or sponsors. Mainly bloggers and companies have approached me to swap links which helps promote my blog and theirs.
Your style Inspirations?
Sydney Girl: Other bloggers.
La Societe de Mode: Maddy: I ADORE the vintage classy, "i'm a working woman" type looks that make a woman look professional, but feminine. I also adore designers such as Marc Jacobs (who doesn't?) and junya watanabe and somtimes play into that childlike blend of bright patterns and colors and bows no one can resist. I'm inspired by it all.
Rebecca: I would do anything to have Alexa Chung's style.  Seeing her in person was just incredible, she sure knows how to dress.
And finally any tips for fellow fashion bloggers?

Sydney Girl: Don't be a blog snob. Appreciate the people who take the time to make a comment on your blog. Have content that is original, fresh and that you really love and other people will love it too.
La Societe de Mode: Do what you love and make a blog you can't help but read. If you love it, so will others. Be patient, and be consistent. If you take it seriously, others will take you seriously as well.

  16. As the demand for android apps is gradually increasing day by day, more and more android apps are launched in the Google market. They do bring android device users a lot of convenience and make life easier and more interesting. Here I would like to talk about some useful software that I have tried. I like them a lot and think they are worth a try from you.

  18. Loving the blog - I enjoy the individuality in articles by certain bloggers, and the way bloggers tend to be very opinionated is very entertaining. Keep up the good work!

  19. i am very passionate about this subject and i feel that people are blissfully ignorant about what goes into wearing a fur coat... and if they are aware then they are horrible people! "to die for" fashion is one thing but killing for fashion is another!solar panels for your homeComet Discount Codes

  20. Killing an animal for a coat seems different to killing an animal for eating...Humans are naturally omnivores. We eat meat...we DONT have to kill animals the way we do, but eating meat is food for our bodies. We can always take multivitamins but multivitamins don't absorb into our body as efficiently as the real deal (and are highly cancerous long term)Passages MalibuDJ Rob E Rob mixtapes

  21. Good point its definitely brought up less than fur. I think its a bit iffy, I honestly haven't owned anything leather since school and that was school shoes, which is where is get a bit iffy because we had to were leather (or similar) black shoes and I think its the same for most schools for safety and uniformity. Although I'm coveting a leather jacket I would feel a little guilty if i bought a real leather jacketHonda A/C compressorsfloor home plans

  22. chevy seat coversQuail West Naples FloridaI am not a vegetarian, at the moment its because I live at home and don't really have a choice, that being said I honestly don't know if i will be able to give up meat because it is convenient both in preparing meals and in regards to nutrition and I found haven't really found a good alternative which has the same value and taste (unlike fur where there are numerous). And although I eat meat I am not dismissive of the issues that surround it, I know that are practices out there that are a less cruel options that some others out there e.g. free rage, cage- free etc and they definitely play a role in my choices.
