Links à la Mode: April 28th

If you aren’t all over the internets obsessing over the royal wedding, you might like to note the latest Independent Fashion Blogs weekly roundup. I was honoured to be selected for the round up and thrilled to draw attention to Sarah Hughes’ photography project Sexy vs. Safe. Take some time to browse the other links for some entertaining reading.

More than Meets the Eye

Edited by Fajr Muhammad at Stylish Thought

When you visit a fashion blog you often see a stylish blogger posing in a perfectly, put together outfit with gorgeous scenery. What you don’t see is the work that goes into curating and maintaining a fashion blog. This week the theme across IFB was outfit posts: what deems an outfit worthy, what goes into creating a stunning visual post and ultimately the comments (some not so nice) that we receive as style bloggers. Ultimately, blogging is a way to express our love for fashion and personal style but as this week’s links can attest to, there is much more to fashion blogging than meets the eye.

Future Fashion Predictions (from the 1930s)

 

Meet Eve, who in this clip (circa 1930) has been dressed by designers anticipating how she might attire herself in the year 2000. The results are darling! And might I add, not so far off.

Personally, I quite admire some of these concoctions. Those cantilever heels have a striking resemblance to many modern ladies feet today, point in case here. And how about that electric belt to adapt the body to climatic changes!? Brilliant.

Although the ladies faired better aesthetically, the gentleman is quite the faddish fellow decked with his 1930′s iPhone (upgraded with radio compatibility!) and, wait, what!? “Candy for cuties?”

Adorable. Enjoy!

Sidney Lumet died yesterday aged 86. He was ceaseless in his work, his final film being completed just recently in 2007. He was best known for masterful pictures such as 12 Angry Men, but he has made many stylish films with many glamorous gals (and a few guys!).
