I am just a little bit in love with The Sartorialist and can waste far too much time browsing through his site archives. Can anyone recommend any other decent style blogs? I'm 37 and tend to prefer classic, as opposed to overly trendy styles. Thanks!

Some great links, excellent! Just one more that I follow that no one mentioned:-

the-northernlight.com/

I like her style though be warned, she's in the loadsamoney camp. Still worth looking at though as the looks can definitely be recreated more modestly.

I love blogs for inspiration...I am so late to this discussion. Some I read for the fantasy and some I read to inspire me in the everyday. Being a mum I need a bit of both. I really love Suburban Faux Pas, Crazy Style Love and Falling in Style. They're all Canadian and don't take themselves too seriously.

livingabstracts.com Utterly brilliant. I tried to start a thread like this a few minutes ago, but think I failed, as I suspect I've put it in the wrong place. Living abstracts a new one full of things I'm busting to wear, will start looking through some of these others!! Thanks all.

Just had another look at yours, Amber. Your new Next jacket looks great. smile

Yes I've had the odd look at Garance Dore but never quite got into her as much as him. I do think she often looks lovely herself though - there's something very obviously French about her I think.

Queef can I just say I think your name is genius. And so's your idea actually! If I had the technical know-how I would totally steal it.

I really enjoy Sart for the photography and he has a great eye for detail which comes from looking at menswear, where everything is about the precise length of a hem etc. Wendy and Atlantic aren't as imaginative - they both look great - but it's also a bit girly and handbaggy. 40bum seems lovely but she does go in for the drape - big time! Kudos to her for being able to pull off every style of waterfall cardigan known to humankind. She looks great. I'm yet to enjoy one as much as Sart. You could try Garance - his girlfriend.

Is there a database anywhere for fashion blogs where you can tick boxes for colouring, height, size, work or casual etc and it will come up with suitable blogs?

If there isn't, there should be!

That foreveramber blog is fabulous. I want to be her!

Fuckitthatlldo Thu 28-Mar-13 16:10:45

I like the look of What I Bought Today too Amber

If and may. Fat fingers.

Wendy's lookbook and Atlantic Pacific are faves of mine. I also like What I Bought Today.

Of course the first two are lovely, but of you're not a size six some of the outfits make look slightly different...

I've just spent an enjoyable hour looking at these but they all seem a bit too young and casual for me (I'm in my 50s). I have lots of classic pieces black trousers, white shirt, navy shift dress etc but would like ideas to make them look more modern. Any suggestions anyone?
Thanks

I used to love love 'alreadypretty' (US based) but then the writer gave up her job to blog fulltime and did lots of sponsored posts and the shine went off for me. But I do enjoy her take on size-ism and body image.

I adore Casey;'s elegant musings.... also US based. Casey is into vintage style, and sews herself and I love that. i wish i had her style (and looks!).

Love those blogs Claudia! Very me.

Not that I have tons of money. But I like the kind of look they go for, and these things can always be re-created with less expensive items. In fact I now have some inspiration for what to wear with my new navy heels from Wendy's look book. So thanks Wendy!

libertychick Thu 28-Mar-13 15:20:34

Oh yes Amber - do it! Would inspire me to give it a go - I reckon I probably only wear about 33 items regularly anyway so would help me clarify what I really need and what's worth spending money on for better quality.

Fuckitthatlldo Thu 28-Mar-13 15:11:24

Thank you so much everyone for the links. Really appreciated.

If you like the Sartorialist, you'll enjoy:

1 - http://atlantic-pacific.blogspot.co.uk/
2 - http://www.wendyslookbook.com/

and from UK and making cheap clothes look expensive:

3 - http://www.foreveramber.co.uk/

all three are in a different league of blogging in terms of style (well, since they show want I want to see, I would say that, wouldn't I?)

All three avoid the wretched skinny jean/floppy top cliches too.

I could do 33 for a month, no sweat! Shall I do it for April? wink

libertychick Thu 28-Mar-13 14:33:28

10 is not enough! I am considering trying Project 33 which someone else linked to before. 33 pieces (including outerwear, jewellery, bags, shoes but not wedding ring, gym or lounge wear) and stick to them for 3 months - I was going to try it for a month! Way too lazy to blog though - could you do it Amber? grin

Is that 10 key pieces with other stuff added in to keep it interesting or just 10 pieces? Think I'd struggle with just 10 things - does that include shoes/bags/scarves etc?

QueenCadbury Thu 28-Mar-13 09:36:05

C'mon drywhite orscarlet start a blog!

twentymumthing.wordpress.com/ Ambersblog
I agree scarlet I'd love to see 10 key pieces ,even in that Polyvore format.

scarlet76 Thu 28-Mar-13 05:56:55

I seem to go through phases with blogs - will read avidly for a while and then seem to lose interest.
SGS - I like the seemingly down to earth approach though her style is slightly different to my own.
DMBL40 - Like the woman and her writing but her budget is way beyond mine, her lifestyle very different and although I'm slim, I'm miles shorter than her. I did pick up a great H&M scarf from that blog though.
All worn out - Like the concept of this and seem to get less bored as different posters keeps it interesting.
Style Guile - sorry, it leaves me cold.
Can I have a link to Amber's? I work so would like to see a blog that reflects that.

As another poster has said, my aim at the moment is to spend less, buy reasonable high street quality and utilise what I have and wear regularly. I would love to see a blog that does a bit of a challenge - say wear 10 key pieces in different ways for a month.
