Weekend Reading: Swedish Style And Online Shopping
Editor’s Note: There are millions of sites in the blogosphere and let’s face it, you don’t have time to read them all. Lucky for you (and us!), we’ve found someone who does, and she’s going to be sharing a few with you each week. Think of them as blogs to know, Twitter users to follow, online stores to shop at — and so much more! If you’re looking to expand your blogroll or source from the best content on the web, Hillary Frazier is your girl! And if you’ve got the inside scoop on a site worth knowing, send her an email!
I am so glad I found this site. Deemed “Fashion by Real People,” Hypeed is a fashion magazine created completely by its readers. Viewers can submit editorial shoots — I loved the one by Toni from The Fashion Cloud — and articles, and the team behind the mag filters through everything and composes it all into a beautiful web-based magazine. Created in Paris in 2009, these guys appreciate the active community of readers that scout trends and come up with the greatest ideas. At Hypeed, you’ve got the power! How awesome is that?
I’ve known about this online store for a while and have kept it a secret, but the products are too good to keep to myself anymore! With designers like Cheap Monday, Wildfox, and two of their own, Bitching and Junkfood has everything I want for summer. They’re from London and have got a great photoblog as well, which makes Kath and Suzy two of my favorite shop owners on the web. Check out their two lines, Remade by bitchingandjunkfood.com and Two Weeks, as well as the SS10 collaboration jewelry line they did with Urban Outfitters. As they say it, ‘shop it like it’s hot!’
Apparently this week is all about international blogs. Naomi and Veronica, the two women behind Modistiskt (which I believe is Swedish) have a style blog that stands among very few on my blogroll. Naomi accessorizes in such a fun way and always has great tights, and Veronica has inspired me to keep layering even with the warm weather. They’ve also got a few other street style candids from girls on the streets, and product posts that I can’t read, but still love.
