#FF Bloggers

Five Follow Fridays:


You know on Fridays when people #hashtag #FollowFridays #FF and list 140 characters of Twitter accounts and you're wondering what is so great about that account/blog? Well I am taking this to the next level and telling you WHY you should follow my suggestions #ProveIt 
Five #FF
(in alphabetical order because "no particular" is just chaotic)
Supal of Chevrons & Eclairs

Why You Should Follow Supal:
  1. Great Graphic Designs: She has a great eye for layout. When I read her blog, I feel like I am flipping through a scrapbook. 
  2. Mix: Her blog is a mix of fashion, design, cuisine, and the arts. She is always switching it up the topic while keeping a great eye for design as an anchor. 
Cait Emma of Flightless Bird

Cait is a photographer and graduate student working on her M.A. in English Literature. She is also a great friend and sorority sister of mine. You should follow her because:
  1. Professional Photographer: Her blog is a showcase of beautiful photography. She has an eye for detailed shots and often abstracts objects from their function to make a statement. Her work speaks.
  2. Healthy + Affordable Bites: Who does not love looking at images of food? She has been posting recipes that focus on small, heathy portions while remaining quick and affordable.
  3. She Writes Well: I can't deal with repetitive grammar mistakes. Fear not, Cait understands the difference between You're & Your and Than & Then. She has an energetic tone/voice in her writing which is hard to accomplish at a young age. Props. 

Katherine of La Petite Marmoset

I had the pleasure of meeting Katherine on Monday night at a CapFabb event. She is the owner of  LPMVintage, a company that sells reconstructed vintage pieces. Aside from being adorably charming, you should follow her because:
  1. Vintage Store is a Gold Mine: Her online vintage store has unique pieces for very affordable prices. Why wear something that is mass produced when you can wear something that is one of a kind? I'd rather pay $60-$150 for a dress that is customized than $60-$150 on a dress that other people will have. Duh!
  2. Great Photographs: She has a ton of stunningly beautiful looks on her blog. That girl is always switching her shoot locations up and pushing her work to the next level.
  3. One-of-a-Kind Style: All of her looks make a statement. She has a unique look and wardrobe to accompany it. 
Juley of SwankHeights

I had to include my favorite Nola blogger. In most of her posts, I can tell you where she took the pictures and it makes me super home sick. Love that city... You should follower Juley because:
  1. Approachable Style: She is stylish while remaining realistic. She knows how to pair statement pieces without going over the top. 
  2. Clean Layout/Quality Work: This is a no brainer but the more I delve into the blogger, the more I appreciate quality blogs. Her outfit post have quality pictures, good links, and a clean layout. Sold!
  3. Alma Mater: I have to give a shout to a Loyola University grad <3
Yola of YolaThorp.com
{Image c/o YolaThorp.com}
You should follow her because:
  1. Pro Quality Photographs: I definitely appreciate a blogger who knows how to compose a good photograph. 
  2. Killer Style: Loving her hat selection, sequins, and jazzy flats! I really wish I could pull said off like she can. She looks adorable in every post. 
  3. She is absolutely beautiful: She can't look bad in anything so every post is great. What more can you ask for?

I hope you check out these fabulous bloggers. Does anyone else have any suggestions of blogs I should follow? Have a fab Friday!
xo,
Abbey

Just Purchased: Ideeli Leather Pants + Coat

7 For All Man Kind "Super Flare"

So I just purchased these fabulous black leather pants from Ideeli ($39.99 orignal & $33.99 with 15% off discount). They are available in Black and Moca. I love the flare leg and of course the leather-ish feel. I am definitely pairing these with feminine/flowy fabrics, chunky booties, massive sunnies, and maybe a white or tan blazer. I also have an all black look in mind that is pretty fierce...

I found this adorable ivory jacket ($29.99 original $25.49 after 15% off discount).
So lady-like.

JACK "Lawrence Coat"

I would like to note that my order was an additional 15% off (it was automatically added/no code). I think they are running this through Friday.

Love getting a good deal. This is my second purchase from Ideeli. Do you shop there? What did you think of your purchases?
