Blog of The Week: Bargainista Fashionista
For the first Blog of The Week of 2010 I was won over by a teddy bear, or rather a teddy bear beanie hat to be precise. Bargainista Fashionista caught my eye in Sunday's Observer Magazine as part of a 'New Year, New You style feature called 30 Ways To A Better Life, which is definitely worth a read if you're stuck for a New Years resolution.
Anywho, there was Susie Wong in the cutest woolly hat I've seen all season (from River Island in case you're interested), chatting about her blog and how to be a savvy shopper on the high street. The concept of her blog is simple: bargains on the high street in 'real time' - if Susie blogs about it on her lunch break then you can guarantee it will still be there by the time you finish work.
The reason this blog works is because the fashion on show is accessible to everyone. High street, eBay and etsy pieces crop up and River Island, Topshop and New Look all make regular appearances. Susie's genuine passion for fashion extends past item must-haves to how one could where the pieces and what trends they go well with, and of course, every post is about what is in stores NOW, this very second.
The only downside of reading this blog is the likely hood that you will turn into a raging shopaholic...
