I've wanted to blog about this for a while now, because even before I joined blogger I'd always had blogs that I checked out almost every day, maybe to see what they were wearing or to hear the latest installment in the drama that is some people's lives. Lemme digress a bit, but don't you think some people's lives are just larger than life, like I hear the stuff that happens to regular people every day and its just like an episode of Desperate Housewives.

Anyway from the blogs I'm following list, its pretty obvious what my favourite blogs are but I still wanna talk out by them anyway. Its my bloggie and I'll do what I want to.......

In alphabetical order, so you can't tell which one I like best:

This was the first blog I ever read, I think it was about 3 years ago and I LOVED it! Its written by 3 designers living in New York and Washington DC and is basically about their lives and their fashion label, Cranberry. I heard about the designer's through a friend of mine that went to Howard but I can't remember how I heard about their blog. Their posting is a little irregular but its great fun, fabulous clothes and very funny opinions.

This is basically a street style blog and the blogger describes himself as "a man out and about in London and beyond: eye candy for the style hungry". That alone says it all, this guy trawls the globe photographing the most avant-garde dressing I've ever seen. Some of the people look downright insane, but a lot of the photos have given me great fashion ideas, its one of the blogs I go to daily to see what people are wearing in Stockholm, Barcelona, Paris, Moscow, London, New York e.t.c. this guy goes everywhere!

I would describe this blogger's style as Miami indie retro and seriously cool. She has an amazing shoe collection and some of the best vintage looks in my opinion, plus she we share an abiding love of Sex and the City and everything concerning it. Definitely a great one, I endorse!

A lot of people may not know this but I LOVE the Olsen twins style., I wouldn't always wear everything they wear but it makes for good entertainment sometimes. So when I found a blog entirely devoted to them and their activities, I was ecstatic! It basically chronicles their everyday lives, their daily fashions, parties they attend, projects their interested in. I really can't fathom how this person gets all that info, but I suspect its probably written by someone in the twins vast publicity machine though the blogger describes herself as Tinsley: the girl in the wayfarers with the French Vogue.

This is so in the running for my all time favourite, written by my dear friend Uzo from Maryland who doesn't dwell on the unimportant stuff like I do sometimes but just indulges in her love for fashion daily. Its also one of my favourite because we have very similar tastes so I can envision myself in every single thing she wears, we even have some identical clothes and accessories. Plus we share an addiction to H&M, Zara, Aldo and Forever 21. Totally banging! p.s. congratulations on your 100th post!

A shrine to Mr. West, makes for very interesting reading, not just because I love Kanye West in spite of the attitude. I think I even love him because of the attitude.

Served to you in a Loboutin shoe box! Too mad! I LOVE this blog, not just because it tells me what my friends in New York are up to everyday but because Nkem is such a great person and we freakily have a lot in common, SATC, Kimora Lee, Becky Bloomwood e.t.c. And her fashion sense is soo on point, no Olsen baggy looks for her but straight up ghetto Grace Kelly all the way. She doesn't know this [but I guess she will now] when we were younger I used to look out for she and her sister in church everyday to see what they wearing, I was like mentally competing with them. Sick, I know.

This is a closed blog and can only be read upon invivtation. Its sort of the trials of a designer who just moved back to Lagos from London. There're weirdly very few posts about clothes, most of them concentrate on whats going on in her life, which are absolutely HILARIOUS! This blogger has to be one of my favourite storytellers, she can turn just sitting in traffic in Lagos into Arabian Nights, which is a rare gift. The post where she talked about going for an aristo party on a yacht, classic!

Written by the great Susanna Lau, she lives in London and is fashion blogging royalty. She has her finger directly on the pulse and nothing gets by her, as the hot designers are graduating from Central St. Martins, she's already blogging about them. Susie Bubble is a great example of how blogging turns into an actual business, she started her blog just to showcase her daily wardrobe and quirky sense of style but has quickly turned into a designer darling and is now so famous she gets freebies from top labels and gets invited to fashion shows around the world and even does editorials for all sorts of magazines, she even counts the great Daphne Guinness as an admirer. She has won numerous awards and is an example of how modern technology can make happen, what would have taken years and a personal okay from Anna Wintour.
