I’m pretty sure I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again.  You all, for lack of a better word, inspire me… to design again, to refine my wardrobe, to fit into my wardrobe, to write my own blog, to move past my routine, to be better, to take on the world, to step away from the top-knot and do my hair.  I get so excited to read the sixty to seventy entries each week.  Each one taking me to a different place.  A good place.

IFB Bloggers, as usual, shared favorite trends like the poncho, knee high boots, lace up detailing, and the “half tuck” of button down shirts, t-shirts and sweaters.  Alternative accessories was also a popular topic.  Pom poms, scarves as necklaces, and wood in wearable form.

There was a nice selection of menswear posts from why and how to wear a watch and corporate wear, to a subtle way to show Halloween spirit.  The suggestions lend themselves well to women’s wear and also got me wondering, “Now, where is my old Mickey Mouse watch?”

Those looking to up their blogging business game will be happy to read about best practices for social media, the best apps for bloggers and the best ways to find other bloggers.  If you can find others, you will know how to be found.  We also got a glimpse into the flip side of one fashion bloggers nuclear life.  There is an informative interview regarding the emerging industry of wearable tech, which takes us past gadget accessories and into tech garments.  And following right along with tech, We Are Ready Made gives an in depth look at just how fast the high fashion world is changing these days.  Hint: Faster than our seasons, but slower than Apple.

Thanks again everyone, including the posts not chosen, for the sweet dreams this week.
