Here are our most frequently asked questions.
1. Does the internet need another fashion blog?
If it didn’t, would we even be doing this? Don’t answer that… we just both like fashion and wanted a place to brain dump all of the pieces we lust after. Even if we can’t afford them even in a dreamland.
2. Biggest fashion no-nos?
Chelsea: Corporate fashion faux pas really get under my skin. I’ve worked for both uber-conservative companies and super lax startups, so I’ve seen work attire all over the place. Though, stirrups and pumps should never been exposed in the office, no matter the culture (95% of the time.) It just screams stripper and 80′s trash! Save it for the theme parties, please!
3. Favorite fashion icon
Chelsea: One could write a whole novel on this question, so I’ll just leave it to an old school and contemporary favorite: Grace Kelly & Michelle Obama. Honorary mention: Jackie O & Natalie Portman.
Mallory: This is a tough one for sure, I would start with Coco Chanel as top of the list, and move from there to Christophe Decarnin, Rachel Zoe, Elizabeth Olsen, and Audrey Hepburn.
4. How should I get started blogging?
Chelsea: Quick answer – get on WordPress and start tinkering around. Long answer – start writing for you. Once you start doing that, an audience will come. You might have to do a little outreach, but consistent and quality content trumps all. I don’t have a huge following anywhere, and I have corporate, personal, professional, humor, and fashion (this one) blogs I contribute to. I continue to do it because it makes me happy.
Mallory: If you are going to start a blog, my biggest piece of advice would be to go at it with a vision. If you are just going to start an outfit of the day blog, or try to appeal to a certain audience by writing about what you think they’ll like – it won’t work. There are a zillion fashion blogs out there, the only thing that will make yours stand out is your voice. There is only one of you on this planet, and people want to hear what you think!
