Today being Monday, I could easily allow 50 minutes of my day to stalk the web for any signs of a fresh fashion site for those in need of a quick study break. (Those 50 minutes for which I should have been intently listening to my linguistics professor on the subject of something rhyming with uhh Vogue? but with a “b” to replace the “g” and starting maybe with an “L”?… lobe! Yes, frontal lobe… occipital… temporal… I dislike this class…)
So my stalking abilities succeeded yet again and I found a site affiliated with Hearst Digital, the same company who designs the sites for Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar. I apologize because the site is pretty well known BUT its words come to us all the way from the great UK! How ironic that the first fashion site I write about is not even stationed in the U.S. Check out handbag.com!
The site is innovative and informative, with the added bonus of pretty pictures and colorful layouts; an easy way to read up on the Euro fashion buzz without leaving your dorm (although the alternative is much more enticing!).
A few highlights:
· Each week they have a recap of the weeks favorite celebrity looks
· “Top 10 Best Dressed Women of All Time” (along with many other top 10 lists)
· Street Style at Paris Fashion Week 2009
The site also offers advice on beauty, relationships, and health. Although fashion is our passion, don’t forget to enrich your mind with a diversified curriculum, i.e. the latest hair products, organic food and butt busting workouts!
So you can judge for yourself, do the Brits do it better?
