BLOG like you give a damn


I haven't blogged in a while (ok, ok, YEARS.) 

And I also haven't read blogs for that same amount of time, but there are some really cool real life people doing real life cool style stuff, and they've been on it this whole time. 

When I first stumbled onto fashion blogs, the ones that really caught me were ones that I actually could relate to- only they had tremendous personal style- something special. Desiree, Dusk Devi, Vix, and Reva springs to mind- blogs possibly long gone, people still rockin' their style but not necessarily in the venue I "discovered" them. 

I'll tell you what I look for- people with great style but the focus is about expressing their personality not the latest trends. Style over fashion, I say, and bonus points for thrifted, second-hand and vintage shoppers. Extra bonus points if they are over 40 years of age, and good at photography. 

I enjoy photo/image heavy content especially if the photography has good lighting, strong composition and a memorable image. Clever, thoughtful posts are always appreciated. 

Do you blog? 

I'd like to thank a couple of style bloggers who have fun sustainable style and who have been so kind to leave comments here. For some reason, I can't figure out how to reply in the comments- so Sheila, and Ann, thank you for taking the time visit and leave your comments. You give a damn.

What blogs if any, inspire you and your personal style?

Yay, good to see you back - I like the same in my bloggers. My photos are as crap as ever (tee hee), but at least I have a lot of 'em.

Anna's Island Style is good: - she doesn't post too often, but has a backlog. 90% of my current faves are at the top here:

I did read your blog from time to time "way back", before I started blogging myself, but I confess to never leaving comments on any of the blogs I followed. From the old ones you mention, I do think only Vix is still blogging. Not sure if you're following Monica (Mrs. Allnut) at, to name one off the top of my head? xxx

Hi Bella:

Most of the people whose blogs I used to follow when I started blogging back in 2009 have quit blogging, myself included. It got to be more work than fun, and then when the pandemic hit, I felt like I had nothing to post about. Vix and Sheila are still going strong, kudos to them, and it's nice to see you back at it.
