Links a la Mode, Feb 3

I was pretty pleased that my manifesto against shopping (!) was included in the Independent Fashion Bloggers "Links a la Mode" section. I've always enjoyed following their links to read some (usually) thoughtful reflections on fashion, blogging, and the fashion blogging industry, but hadn't tried submitting myself before.

Rules state to include the other links in a post... so enjoy!

So long, farewell

Edited by Thom of The Sunday Best
Here we are, face to face, a couple of silver spoons. My run as an editor for this venerable list is coming to a close, and as it does I'd like to take a moment to reflect on what makes the internet such an awesome place. Ahem. It's you. Yes, you! I don't get to read as much online as I once did, and this list kept me in touch with the, dare I say it, zeitgeist of style writing. I was often amazed at the diversity of topics you writers were willing to tackle. Keep those keyboards clacking, stay strong, and be good to the incoming editors. We are only human.

Aw, that's awesome! I know what you mean about shopping, especially when there's so much we can do with our time. Honestly I have a hard time not picking up a thing or two when I'm out, but I think I could do without an all-day shopping spree..
