I never thought of posting about another blogger but here I am, devoting a post to one of my favourite fashion blogs I follow religiously (and you should too), Andy T aka. Style Scrapbook. As soon as I saw this look I fell head over heels in love. Perhaps it's that it's photographed so well, especially with the natural sunlight and lens flare or maybe it's the Topshop maxi that looks so ethereal blowing in the wind. I absolutely love the contrasting textures of the accordion pleat maxi and the 3D flower mesh jumper from American Apparel (which I know has done the rounds on lookbook.nu for quite a while). I've wanted to give that jumper a go for ages now but time and time have been stopped by my friend who says it's been worn out and a little impractical. It looks amazing on Andy, adding to the femininity and dreamy-ness of the outfit. Especially in the first picture, the maxi in the sunlight looks almost galaxy print (even though it's more subtle water colour) and instantly reminded me of my Black Milk leggings.
I've always loved Andy's looks, it's really wearable - simple basic outfit combos and yet still super stylish. Lately I've really enjoyed her style where she incorporates that pop of colour in her outfit whether it be an aqua jacket or pink cropped skinnies.
I've long been interested in the appeal of the fashion blogger (I even wrote an article about it for uni) especially someone with as much popularity and hype as Style Scrapbook. Is it because they're regular girls with fairly wardrobes (although not always affordable...)? Or do we just fall in love with their style because it photographs so well? Or because perhaps we can re-create their looks? Popular fashion blogs barely have any writing, it's all pictures. I've always hoped that one day this blog would end up somewhat readable or that at least people would actually take in interest in my looks and what I have to say. Girls like Andy T (stylescrapbook), Nicole Warne (garypeppervintage), Emma (spindizzyfall) and Ashley Madekwe (ringmybell) inspired me to start blogging in the first place and I'm constantly checking their blogs daily for new looks to admire and try.
