Rock The Week

Fashion related (and totally non-fashion related) things that have made my world go round over the last seven days…

Bristol Blogger Meet Rock The Week

  • Bristol bloggers united. Yesterday was the day of the Bristol Blogger Meet (#bbmeet) at Cabot Circus and it was so much fun. I’ll post about the day (and the epic goody bag!) later this week, but in the mean time thanks so much to Alessia and Sasha for organising.
  • On the blog this week I wrote about a pair of gold glitter ankle boots that a magpie would be proud of, and the vintage dress and wedding vows that made my Valentine’s Day, so go and have a butchers’ if you haven’t already done so…
  • Finally, if you read Business of Fashion, Style Bubble or Man Repeller you’re probably already aware of the response to a Suzy Menkes article that appeared in a New York Times publication a couple of weeks ago. It relates to the ‘circus’ of fashion week shows and the street style element of posing for photos outside of the show venues in eye-catching outfits. While I agree with Menkes that ‘street style’ has become a buzzword for calculated images – it’s really not capturing a subculture when a ‘street style’ photograph features models and designers – it was interesting to see how much negativity now comes with the label of ‘blogger’. The original article and responses are well worth a read if you’re interested in the ongoing shift within fashion blogging culture.
