Links à la Mode

I made it onto this week's Independent Fashion Bloggers Links a la Mode!  Check out this week's links below (have no fear: my regular weekend links will still appear this afternoon).

Looking Forward to Looking Back for Fall

Edited by: Ann of Holier than Now
Every season begins with looking back: the designers revisit trends of yore, and we fling open our oversized Tupperware bins and dig through the back of our closets to see just what it was we wore this time last year. Despite the thrill of new trends, most of us probably feel that the first Fall shopping we should do is in our own closet (View from 5 ft. 2 and Your Saving Style inspire on this front). Next step: after considering your bank account, and perhaps the pros and cons of fast fashion (see: Consumerism Killed My Soul), a visit to your local thrift store or flea market for vintage finds might replace that mall excursion you were imagining. With a wealth of inspiration from the blogosphere, there's never been a better time to invest in - or just be inspired by - style from the past.

Links à la Mode: August 26th

  1. Yep, I saw that yesterday! Congrats!

    A few people are confused about this rule to submit a link on IFB, including me and I was wondering if you could help me out? Here's the rule:

    "2. Publish the entire "Links à la Mode" with "Links à la Mode" in the title of the post before Monday of the following week."

    Does that mean, if your link is chosen you have to rename the title of your post as you did?

  2. Hey, congratulations for making it on Links à la Mode! I've always been too intimidated to submit my posts, but maybe I'll give it a go!

    How do you end up making it onto other sites?

  4. @ Jen - You don't have to change the name of your original post, but when you post the Links a la Mode, that post must have the "Links a la Mode" in the title. I didn't change anything from the original post.

    @ shealennon - I've submitted a ton of times but this is my first time getting chosen...you should definitely try it! You never know!

    @ colleen - Are you a member of Independent Fashion Bloggers? visit www.heartifb.com to see if you're eligible (I'm pretty sure you will be). They have a ton of resources and discussion boards for fashion bloggers to share info and ideas. They also organize a weekly Links a la Mode where members can submit posts within one week (for example, all the posts above were published last week), and they choose their 20 faves each week. It's a really great way to find out about other fashion blogs and help promote each other.
