monday’s post on racial profiling in the retail world was featured in the independent fashion bloggers’ weekly post round up, links à la mode. it’s a curated list of the 20 best posts from the past week of all those submitted by members, and i’m honored to have mine included. this week’s collection has everything from an interview with an anthropologie designer to taking a good selfie to the challenges of finding petite clothing. i’m excited to check out these over the weekend where i’ll be relaxing at home, working on the redesign, and indulging in a spa day (more on that later). i’d love to hear your thoughts on the profiling issue, it’s such an important topic…and have a lovely weekend!
i’m writing this from a hotel room in new york today. coming to new york always makes me think about style… since NYC is probably one of the most stylish places in the world. what makes an outfit “work?” is it the actual pieces, or your je ne sais quoi? not knowing, or trying to quantify is what keeps the fashion media in business. which is why I always love browsing through the links. this week we have all kinds of tricks and tips on how to style your wardrobe, how to put it all together, so whether or no you have that je ne sai quoi you’ll at least look damn good.
