Links a la Mode: The IFB Weekly Roundup

It’s always a thrill being selected for IFB’s Links à la Mode! Each week, Independent Fashion Bloggers compiles 20 blog posts from members of its site surrounding a particular theme. It seems that plenty of other bloggers are, too, faced with September transitions, which I recently addressed on the blog.

This week’s roundup is packed with transitional tips (day to night, summer to fall, 19th to 20th century). I particularly loved See Lark!‘s DIY splatter/graffiti dress tutorial and Fleur d’Elise‘s 6 Un-Boring Coats forFall! Check out the full roundup below and let me know which post is your favorite!lalam0912


September is always weird. The leaves start changing colors, the sweaters and coats are in the stores, we’re back to school, summer’s over… but it’s still stupidly hot! I’ve always been so excited about fall, I’d be sweating in my boots, and wearing sweaters anyway. What a girl does for fashion, right? Well, this week, we have all kinds of transitional posts. Transitioning from teenager to adult, summer to fall, day to night, and the call for fashion week to transition to the next level. We also have a hilarious post about 20th century fashion as predicted in the 19th century, it’s so spot on–not. Either way, pull up a tall iced-tea (remember, it’s hot out!) and take a look through these links.
