If you mean a link to the animal print slippers, I haven't had any original ideas - am just pondering suggestions on the current thread on here about nice slippers.
Was about to buy some Ruby and Ed velevet ones before Christmas in local shop, but decided they were jusat too much - but now this slippers thread has found some at half-price so may have to have those too!
I enjoy reading posts and links from DonaAna, as she has introduced me and other budding perfumistas to a whole new world of fragrances. She knows her stuff and is very articulate when she writes. I imagine she is very stylish, but I also think a lot of other regular posters on MN are pretty darned stylish too. I have picked up so many hints and tips from this forum. i have lurked a lot, but have passed on things that i have discovered where appropriate <slinks off to wipe baby vomit off her top>
Oh without a shadow of a doubt it's mrscampbellblack. I sort of know her in real life ( in a non stalking way ) and she is gorgeous and uber stylish. She also gives great fashion advice without being patronising.
Like many here, I started out post-birth, covered in puke and in unraveling yoga pants. S&B has helped enormously (special mentions to everyone on W&A, Vogue, and various color analysis threads and all the lovely MN ladies I'm connected with on Pinterest).
But nominating an individual can create a cliquey, unintentionally hurtful vibe (you belong, you don't) and S&B has never been about that. I think what's best here is the collective vibe of self-improvement, the genuine wish to change. Everyone here is stylish, or going to be, because everyone is making an effort and willing to change.
My favorite threads are always the ones where someone (often a first-time poster) presents a problem, and it's collectively solved. Threads where someone solicits advice, and others offer help, links and opinions. Because it's almost always a group process, it's difficult to nominate anyone in particular. But I've discovered so many good things here just by listening to collective wisdom.
I particularly love the Perfumista threads because we managed to turn an inherently negative attitude into a very positive one. Now it's all about discovery, daring, self-expression and sharing. Thanks to everyone who has made that happen!
You Amber MrsCB MarshaBrady Hopefully who helped me enormously when I had my colours done DonaAna for her knowledge and the way she can paint a fabulous picture with words Mignonette for reintroducing me to things I had forgotten I loved In fact all the lovely ladies on MN Vogue who didn't ignore me when I barged onto their thread and haven't moved since!
I agree Doña. I hate these sort of threads and question the motivations of those who start them. S and B is richer for having variety. It would be a shame if as a result of reading this thread someone didn't post a link because it wasn't deemed stylish enough for the MN Vogue.
* I hate these sort of threads and question the motivations of those who start them*
Really? Is it because you think I'm looking for attention and hoping everyone will say I'm the most stylish person in the world? I don't fancy myself as quite so insecure and needing approval, thank you very much. Thread is lighthearted and fun, or was certainly intended to be, and I for one enjoy reading about where the strengths of other lie. For example I recently stopped biting my nails, so to know Pinot is the resident nail guru is very useful. And if it gives Hopefully a kick up the bum to start blogging again then so much the better.
Often I find threads are only as bitchy and divisive as the people on them.
I do agree with Dona Ana, though, that the very best thing about this thread is the great, almost always non-judgmental, response - and excellent practical ideas/pointers - you get from posters old and new collectively.
Unless you know the poster IRL, or follow them on a blog it is very difficult to know whether they are stylish or not. I have a mental image of some longstanding posters - Cyb , Noddy, Tethers, Cod, Mrs RCB etc because of the things they have posted about over the years, but I wouldn't know if they were stylish or not based on that. They could be posting and lounging about in their fleecy onesies.
*Disclaimer - can I just make it clear that I don't have a onesie, fleecy or otherwise and that Tethers is stunning.
