Back to the Future

Edited by Debutante Clothing

I was honored to be asked to be and Independent Fashion Blogger editor. The diversity here is so impressive. This week, Dramatis Personae continues series on corsets, Clutch 22 shows us a rockin’ bondage anklet DIY, Daisy Fairbanks shares drool worthy vintage gowns going up on the auction block, and WendyB takes us back to the future in 80s jackets. Enjoy!

There’s the full version of Links á la Mode here in the forums… there’s a lot of great posts there too.

From now on, we will select the best 20 links posted in the Links à la Mode thread as decided by a guest editor.

Wow, what a great round up.

Omelle shoes are to die for and I think they will be one of the next big brands because of how awesome they are.

I love the article about shoes. I should have chosen a nick name of Shoelover instead of Fashionlover. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, there’s no doubt about it. But shoes …

I was browsing on Vogue website and came across Ungaro’s Spring/Summer 09 collection. I’ve added the link at the end of my post.

Clothes are fabulous as well, but I really loved the sandals that were gracing the catwalk. I’ve been looking for something very elegant, minimalistic and gorgeous. You can move the mouse on the images to see all the details from up-close. I absolutely adore those cute ribbons tied around your ankle. The sandals look so elegant. I’m in love with them…,6716
