The blogosphere world never ceases to amaze me. I have had the opportunity to meet many interesting, educated, talented people from all over the world. Speaking of talent, one of my favorite fashion blogs is WEARITMYWAY; these girls understand style, in an effortless/hippie chic/original way. They also happen to maintain a rockin’ figure amongst their busy lives as stylists. Cha, cha, check it out:

+ Hi ladies: introduce yourselves & the blog:

WEARITMYWAY Girls: Isabelle Banham & Ali Dariotis- we’re LA based stylists & the founders of the lifestyle and fashion blog, WEARITMYWAY. The blog was started in September 2010; it is frequently updated with editorial shoots we have styled, exclusive behind the scenes images, and photography & art we draw inspiration from.

+ If you’re going to flaunt, what body part is most flattering in a LBD?

WIMWG: Definitely the back.

+ Go-to piece for the spring to summer transitional season?

WIMWG: We have both been obsessed with our Isabel Marant Bekett high-tops [ cheaper similar version found here ]. We’ve been wearing them for months and even switch back-and-forth!

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and
    without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this during my hunt for something concerning this.
