I stopped buying fashion magazines when I started reading blogs, and now every time I find a new blog to read I get extremely excited and begin to look forward to each post. Blogs will always be a major source of fashion inspiration to me as I am more interested in reading about real lives and wardrobes that are relevant and accessible to me. In the last few months I've been really enjoying following some of the newer vintage and retro blogs that have appeared on the scene, and blogs that have been around for a while that I have only just discovered. I thought it would be fun to share these blogs with all of you in hope that you will enjoy them just as much as I do!
