Celebrity Look For Less: Fashion Blogger Edition

Monday, January 13, 2014

Fashion Blogging is an industry emerging into it's adolescence. It's an industry that has really blown up in the last few years, and is very over-saturated (Hi, I'm one of them). In it's infancy though, there were some fashion bloggers who worked really hard, and got lucky. There are quite a few fashion bloggers who have been thrust into celebrity status. And although I don't think any of them ever anticipated the stardom they would face, I'm positive they're loving the spotlight. I don't know the exact statistics, but I would guess only about 1% of fashion bloggers worldwide gain any significant notoriety. Don't forget, these ladies are not like Paris Hilton, they weren't born successful, they have put in the hours it takes to keep themselves on top. I look up to these women, they are self made, and they are pioneers in their industry.

Besides being innovators and early adopters in their industry, fashion bloggers have impeccable style. Fashion bloggers are their own stylists and are trendsetters in their own right. So instead of my usual "celebrity looks for less" segment, I decided to focus on celebrity bloggers today. The three bloggers I've picked, all hold a special place in my life. I have been fortunate enough to watch them grow, meet two of them and really just be inspired by their achievements. They all have luxury closets, but I have done my best to show how can bring out your inner fashion blogger, on a budget!

I love these looks, Tori! Some bloggers have gone wayyyy too celebrity for me now that they're wearing such expensive looks - but your inspirations look great and are actually affordable!

I looooved this post- the ladies that made it are such an inspiration, but i do feel a bit disconnected from them when just their jacket costs a grand!! It was fun seeing their similar looks just for much less. My favorite one is the last one- that parka coat is gorgeous!!
