So You Wanna be a Fashion Blogger

So you want to be a fashion blogger (doesn’t everyone and their mom and their grandma these days)? You bought a kitschy domain name, perhaps one that ends in -ista, installed the ever popular wordpress and now you’re sitting there staring at the blank computer (probably a macbook) screen wondering what to do next. How about start by filling your closet with all the necessities to be the top fashion blogger in the world, earning lots of dough (because everyone knows bloggers rake it in) with these must have items for the up and coming fashion blogger. And go ahead and cut me some slack, ’cause I’m poking a little fun at myself with this too. What fun is blogging if you can’t have a little fun at your own expense!?

1} The big and bold Michael Kors men’s watch is the must-have in any first time fashion blogger’s jewelry arsenal. Arm parties unite!

2} It’s a sneaker! It’s a wedge! It’s the footwear every blogger loves to hate. Or is it hates to love?

3} Nothing screams southern fashion blogger like wearing three big initials around your neck. The bigger, the better.

4} You aren’t a true fashion blogger until Mrs. Minkoff herself sends you a mini mac. And I don’t mean the computer or the cheeseburger.

5} If Blair Eadie has a leopard trench, then so should you. And everyone else.

6} The trusty leather skinny jean screams “urban fashion blogger don’t care.”

7} Can’t instagram all those fabulous five star or #whole30 meals without the latest fashion-forward iPhone case! Extra points for leopard or polka dots.

8} Chambray, just a pretty name for jean shirt. Goes with everything and nothing at the same time.

9} The trend that’s sweeping the nation, the bubble necklace. If you don’t already own, you probably don’t have a pulse.

10} Hunter Boots – making rain more fun for fashion bloggers since 2007.

    So funny. I just started blogging and currently only have a chambray shirt, but I've been reading fashion blogs daily for approximately six years now so I totally get this post. I've seen all these things so many times! Just gives me a reason to go shopping, haha!

    I started laughing aloud in the library :D This is so true, I am not a fashion blogger and still I went from 'unbelievable!' to 'I probably should get this' with the sneaker wedges.

  8. Allison says:

    Haha this is great! When getting dressed in the morning everyone should just ask themselves WWBED (what would Blair Eadie do?)

  9. Alison says:

    HYSTERICAL! And oh so true too!

  10. Jamie says:

    Just found this via Wardrobe Oxygen's tweet, and it is fantastic! I've wanted to do a post like this for a while actually. Why are there certain things it seems ALL fashion bloggers have? Like that freakin leopard coat! lol. Great job!

    PHEW. I'm totally going to attribute my failures as a blogger as the result of ONLY owning the Michael Kors watch.

  12. this is AMAZING!! Best thing I've read in a long time.

  13. OMG, this is too funny. I guess that's why I am failing too. I don't have the watch. I have one that looks like it though. Matter of fact, except for the jeans shirt, I don't have anything else her. If Blair is the chick from Atlantic Pacific, I love her, but that's not my body type. Can't dress like here. (-:

  14. My typos… Lol.. I meant

      No!!! I think that is what makes a blog unique, when they don\’t do things just like everyone else. Keep forging forward with your own personal style and you will succeed :)

  15. [...] you are a fashion/style blogger — or read a lot of them — you will die over this post. Seriously, laugh-out-loud [...]

  16. Michaela says:

    Hahah this is very amusing. I love that you are poking fun at something that we are all thinking, fashion bloggers and non bloggers alike. It's true, there is such a cookie cutter blogger style out there these days. Great post and looking forward to what else is to come!

  17. @BrittanyPMF says:

    GOD you're killing me. This is SOOOO great. I mean srsly.

  18. Em K says:

    Hilarious and so true! It is kind of sad that there's a blogger uniform, I miss when blogs were really unique.

  19. The only thing I own out of the nine is the "glorified jean shirt" guess I'm not a true fashion blogger :)

  21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1D9ILQ_Dl1g word of mouth is probely the way most people find a new hair stylist because you trust those who are closest to you. If they have had a good experience then theres no reason why you should not experience the same the probelm with this is one size does not fit all your expectations will be totaly different from theres. Thats why I set up hairdressers Lurgan
    putting all the best hair salons in Lurgan into the one place making it easy to contact them without having to spend time searching
    all over the web.
