Must...stop...reading...blogs...

I have a serious addiction to reading fashion blogs. I think the fascination comes from seeing normal ladies styling normal clothes and realizing that I can do that too! The problem comes when I see something I really like and then realizing that I can buy what I like (unlike fashion magazines, where most items are unavailable and/or cost prohibitive).

Aldo at ShopStyle
Take these shoes for instance. I saw them on Chloe, and in just a few clicks they came home to me!

And look at this gorgeous dress! If I wasn't Lisa's loyal follower, I would be blissfully unaware of it, as I am immediately deleting all store emails before even looking at them.

What is a fashion blog-addicted girl to do?!?

Oh, I know exactly what you mean. I started following fashion blogs to get ideas, and now I have so MANY good ideas and sources of inspiration that it's kind of out of control!

Thanks for the shoutout!

Ugh, we DO all shopping enable each other - and I kind of really want that dress now, so am I indirectly enabling myself now?!

You are so right, unlike fashion mags, blogs provide links. You are dangerously close to buying anything and everything -- like you mentioned, you never would have known even existed!!

Plus, you've now seen it styled on a real person!

I've bought sooooo much stuff since I started blogging, I'm not sure if it's awful or awesome, but I just keep on shopping.
