When I started my site in 2009 I never would have thought that blogging would become such a business. It’s really amazing that girls that started sharing their personal style posts on the Internet could now have their own books, product lines, television shows, etc! I’m so proud of my blogger friends who have proved that hard work and consistency pay off. Keep reading to read about the fashion blogger collaborations I’m loving right now. Many of these girls are personal friends and I’m just so incredibly proud of them and everything they’re doing!
Fashion Blogger Collaborations I am Loving
I may be biased, but I just love fashion blogger collaborations! When I admire someone’s personal style, I think it is so fun to see what designs they come up with and what styles they feel they couldn’t find anywhere else. They are expert shoppers after all! I recently collaborated with Trunk Club to share a custom “Trunk” of some of my favorite fall styles. It was seriously such a fun project, but I would love to design my own collection one day. A girl can dream! Below are are a few of my recent favorite blogger collaborations and some of the styles on my wishlist!
SHOP THE LOOK
The dress I’m wearing above is from the Gal Meets Glam collaboration with Nordstrom. You probably recognize it from my post on how to wear a dress in the fall! As one would expect, Julia Engel’s collection is packed full of gorgeous, glamorous, feminine dresses. Over 70 dresses! There are so many to choose from and I love the plaid one I already have, but, if it’s still available post-baby, I would also love to get my hands on this cute tweed dress! Julia is such a sweet girl and I always think back to our coffee date in San Francisco in 2012 when we were chatting about our upcoming Refinery29 collaboration. I was picked to represent LA and she was picked for SF!
Blair Eadie was one of the first fashion bloggers I started to follow and I fell in love with her feminine and fun style immediately! I met her at a fashion tradeshow one year and she was so incredibly kind and gracious. Fast forward a few years later and I sat next to her at a NYFW show. She was so sweet and warm and actually remembered my name which blew me away. She is really one of the most geniune people! Blair has always been able to pull off the coolest high fashion looks, so of course her collection with Halogen would feature really unique fabrics, cuts, and color combinations. If you’re looking to spice up your wardrobe with luxe pieces this fall, then you have to check out her collection. This tweed and faux fur jacket is so glamorous!
The Something Navy collection with Nordstrom is basically a one-stop-shop for updating your wardrobe. There are totally classic pieces like this turtleneck, but also some really fun pieces like these houndstooth booties. Arielle Charnas has such great taste, so I am not surprised that I love her collection so much! While I haven’t met Arielle personally I love following her on social media and keeping up with her adorable family!
This collection isn’t really a collaboration, but I am just so obsessed that I had to include her line on this list! Rachel is a close blogger friend- we’ve stayed together in NYC and gone on a trip together to Carmel. She is such a fun and inspiring person to be around and I’m so impressed by her work ethic. She’s totally the mama that can do it all! Rachel Parcell has designed her own feminine and modest collection of clothes and to say I want them all is an understatement! How gorgeous would this burgundy lace skirt be for holiday parties?!
Of course, I’d love to know what your favorite blogger collaborations are! I am all about spreading the love and supporting other bloggers, so please let me know which ones I should be checking out.
