There are a gazillion fashion blogs. I enjoy a lot of them, and I admire the bloggers’ bravery for posting pictures of themselves for public consumption/possible criticism. I’ve posted about a couple of my favorites here and here, but I haven’t posted any other fashion blogs for a while because I find them difficult to blog about. I don’t have the necessary repertoire of fashion adjectives to describe their specific styles, and I can reblog their pictures, but it’s not that fun for me (which duh, is the main reason I write this ol thing).
This chick is different! Lauren Friedman, 24, lives in Washington DC, and she blogs on My Closet in Sketches. Friedman started her blog as a release from the monotony of her 9-5 (I’m beginning to sense a theme…), and it became so popular that she quit her dreary job and now trades on her site and sketches. Instead of taking pictures of herself, Friedman draws pictures of her outfits and writes in her commentary/explanation for each piece. Thankfully, she’s already identified her style as “boy-meets-girl prep with major swag” so I don’t have to try to describe her look myself.
My Closet in Sketches is unlike any other fashion blogs I’ve seen, Friedman shows a lot of talent (I wonder how much time each drawing takes her?), I love all the DC references, and her scrawling commentary is well-written/funny. Hope you like her!
