Links à la Mode: Independent Fashion Bloggers Weekly Roundup

by jennine on December 4, 2008

You may want to clear up some space on your calendar today, because we have loads of great links this week. Wondering what to you your ‘dumbass boyfriend?’ (hehe) Well, Smart Geezer gives us 10 tips on buying clothes for men. My Fashion Frenzy may be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from her experience with Black Friday. We’ve also got loads of great vintage posts, Couture Allure parties like it’s 1959, Debutante Clothing tells us why a zipper is scandalous (if you’re Joan Crawford) and The Coveted dishes on 13 Vintage Holiday Party Dresses. On the inside, don’t forget to stop by Petite Bourgeois to read about the man behind Ford Models, and 39th and Broadway let’s us know what we didn’t learn in Fashion School.

If you’ve missed this weeks round, no worries, there is always next week, you can sign up in the forums by clicking here. Links à la Mode keep getting better and better, the more you participate the better everyone gets.
