Chatting with Revanche of A Gai Shan Life one evening, I blurted out:
I don’t think I can afford reading style blogs anymore.
Because, you see, I love style blogs – I appreciate the helpful information on how to put together a professional wardrobe, where to find a good tailor, what type of shoes goes best with what type of skirt, and how to mix and match different patterns. The sheer entertainment value of style blogs is also nothing to sneeze at: looking through a blogger’s photo spreads reminds me of a veritable ever-updated fashion magazine (and instead of paying $4 for a magazine at the newsstand, blogs are free!)
But I’ve realized reading style blogs has left my financial immunity hopelessly compromised against the shopping bug. It’s hard not to want to buy more clothes when I see those beautiful, impeccably put together outfits and the wonderfully evocative way many of these bloggers write about fashion and lifestyle.
I’ve purchased so many things in the last couple of months… if I don’t stop soon, I’m going to burn a hole through my wallet. Now that I’ve warned you, click on the links (of some of my favorite style blogs) above at your own risk!
Does reading style blogs make you want to buy more clothes?
