A Study In Streetstyle.

In the fashion and social media community, we are at a major crossroads.  Though it has been years in the making, it has seems as if out of nowhere, bloggers and streetstyle icons have begun to be the voice of the fashion industry.  They aren't running it, I want to make that clear.  Or at least in my mind, they aren't running it.  But they have begun an accidental revolution of sorts that has them sitting front row at shows, being paid to collaborate with some of the biggest designers out there and have forced the already delicate world of print media to go digital. Something has happened in the last season that has us all questioning this influence yet again.  Bloggers are bored.  Readers are bored looking at the same content over and over again as delivered by said bored bloggers.  And the fashion industry is questioning how long these kids are going to keep nosing into their world.  This is all a generalization but one that has us all wondering where it is all going.  Susie Bubble, along with the incredible Tim Blanks and more, have just published this great 'mini documentary' on the entire situation and it's brilliant.  Now I want the full-feature version.  So, Susie, make that exist please.

Elke Kramer Gorgeousness.

While catching up on one of my favorite blogs, Style Bubble, I was really struck by one post that featured the delight of great things that come in small packages.  One of the highlights of the post were a collection of gorgeous little rings that Miss Susie Bubble styles so well, and which also drew me to explore more on Elke Kramer jewelry.  Now I'm obsessed. There is something very medieval and mystical about the jewelry while also maintaining the right amount of femininity.  So I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from the current collections which are gorgeous and, very surprisingly, really affordable for such special items.

Precious Susie Bubble.

So if you don't have Style Bubble bookmarked on your computer, you totally should.  I have been a fan for some time now of Susie and her blog but when I saw this video she did for Bluefly, I actually just want to hug her and ask if she needs a new best friend.  Cause I'm totally up for it.
