I’m not a badass {sigh}, but sometimes I like to draw inspiration from them.  And that is where friends chime in to say, “but you’ve worn white jeans and pale pink together… on numerous occasions”.  Yes, it’s true. {sigh}

Both, A Handful of Stories and La Vintage Vida really touched on this.  It’s the source of true personal style; to be able to pull just enough from cultures, sub-cultures, and trends, while remaining true to our spirit.  We had some excellent posts on how menswear designers are drawing from outside their usual comfort zones with the bold bright prints and handbags.

We live in a wonderful time where we are not limited by our time zones.  We have access to a worldwide view.  From Arabia, Africa, Russia, Italy, and India to Las Vegas and New York City.  This community of IFB bloggers does a wonderful job of sharing the trends within their context.  Fall and Winter trends were a popular focus this go around but beauty and blogger tips were not to be missed.

One of these days, I’ll have to share a favorite Halloween look of mine.  Badass personified.

IFB Bloggers are from all over the world, different walks of life and ethnic backgrounds, varying ages and body types, etc.  Your common thread?  Perspective.  You share your perspective on beauty; how you see and feel beauty.  You inspire and give hope to others from your differences and individual perspective.  Yes, I swear I am still talking about fashion.

This weeks links share perspective on dressing over 40, petite fashion, Summer on budget and not on budget, and incorporating heritage fashions while staying true to personal style.  There are also a couple in depth posts reviewing the current ad campaign season, and a look into Ukraine’s fashion industry from the perspective of a designer.  

… and for the sewing savvy {and not so savvy}, a DIY Caftan!

Inspired by Greatness

I found myself inspired by you all to start my own fashion blog. No, it hasn’t happened, but a gal can dream. IFB bloggers had smart advice on the business of blogging this week by sharing tips on collaboration, their own favorite bloggers, and translating high fashion for the real world and budget. I also loved how some of you took me out of my world and shared beautiful traditions and regional fashion. And for those of you wondering which current designer matches your zodiac sign, follow along with Amethyst Honey. That was a new one.

11. Links à la Mode Feature: Summertime

Posted on Updated on

As I read through the submissions for this week, I couldn’t get the music of George Gershwin’s Summertime from Porgy and Bess out of my head. With each post of Summer Fashion, the lyrics would start over, “Summertime, And the livin’ is easy…” So, IFB Bloggers, I suggest back ground music this week as you click through these inspiring links. {My favorite Summertime rendition is performed by Billie Holiday}

OWAIS HAJI X MAHEEN KHAN

My guest blogpost on Maheen Khan

Les Assorties

owais-haji-musings-of-a-fashion-designer

Sydney-based fashion blogger and designer Owais Haji is the proud owner of Musings of a Fashion Designer, where he reports the latest fashion news and catwalk trends, and shares his daily outfits with his readers. Originally from Pakistan, he talks to us about Maheen Khan, a veteran fashion designer who has long followed in the Pakistani tradition expanding it worldwide:

“When one thinks of sub-continental fashion, especially one from Pakistan, they tend to think an overdone, overworked embroidered ensemble. However, Pakistani fashion is more than that, with many designers producing collections which are as contemporary as anyone in the world; Pakistan might be fashion world’s best kept secret. When one talks about Pakistani fashion, a name that possibly laid the foundation of it, moving it beyond the obvious, is the one of veteran designer Maheen Khan.

Real Style Essentials

What do you really need for good style? The answer could be, “More clothes.” But we know better. It’s about knowing what you wear. It’s about finding your self, not your clothing self, but your real self. It’s about taking care of yourself. It’s about feeling good in your own skin. This week’s roundup is about the real essentials you need to be stylish. Whether it be your skin, what’s under that skin, or what you’re wearing to cover it.

Cozy & Chic

For those of you in the US, Happy Thanksgiving! While we’re all laying around the house waiting for the turkey to come out of the oven, or rooting for their favorite dog to win the National Dog Show, or rooting for their favorite football team, or playing Just Dance on the Wii, just because we’re getting cozy today doesn’t mean we’re not chic. Cozy up to this week’s roundup and have a wonderful day!
