Who Wrote the Book of B’love?

Why, it’s Audi! If you’re not already addicted to her effortless pattern mixing, fabulous frocks, enviable shoe collection, and winning smile, get ye to Fashion for Nerds this instant.

Audi kindly bestowed upon me the Arte y Pico award – my second this week! I am blushing from all the wonderful b’love you fabulous femmes have doled out. I feel so supported and loved by our little community, and I am learning so much from you all. Thanks for letting me play in the sandbox witcha.

Rulez as followez:
The rules of Arte Y Pico are – you must pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting content, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language! Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to their blog. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself. The award winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of the Arte Y Pico blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

Now that you’ve got the background, let’s hear it for:

Michael McGraw Photography: Yes nepotism is alive and well in this little heart o’ mine. But if we’re talking ARTE here, my hubs is your man. In fact, he already won an award this week, too: A photo he’d placed in a juried exhibit won him a cash prize. SO proud. Take a peek at his gorgeous new(ish) series of tree photos.

Melissa Loves: An offshoot of the glorious Creature Comforts, Miss Meliss has style to spare and a totally loving and welcoming ‘tude to boot.

Angie at You Look Fab is a blogging hero of mine. Love her style, love her writing, love the supremely practical advice she gives, and love her attitude that everyone could and should dress their best to FEEL their best. (That last is, obviously, a sentiment we share.) Oh, and her site is so gorgeously designed, I frequently drool with envy.

Casey’s Musings is one of those blogs that gives me a little burst of happy every single day. Casey is just as clever and kind and gorgeous as she can be, and provides gobs of vintage inspiration, tutorials, and amazing photos with pleasing regularity. Another site so lush as to inspire fits of jealousy.

The universally beloved Lady Smaggle of Smaggle Style is SUCH an amazing wordsmith that I feel like I was right there with her for half the experiences she describes. This girl’s got the funk, and is bold in ways that I admire and aspire to emulate. Someday, she’s gonna teach me how to make my hair look just like hers, too.

Spread the b’love, por favor, mis amigas! Oh, and mi esposo!

Suggestion Box

My beloved and faithful Sunday readers: Any suggestions for advice-y, how-to, tutorial type things you’d like to see me blather about?

I feel like I have no shortage of standard-issue rambly thinkings, but want to up my quotient of useful stylistic info. And I’d love to know what you’re most interested in. If you’ve got a topic that I can’t spout about off the top of my head, I’d love to dig into some research. So lay those suggestions on me.

I Just Called to Say I B’love You

The delightful Songy of Style Discovery gave me this bit o’ b’love and I’m just tickled! My charge is quite simple: Provide a list of 7 blogs that I adore to you lovelies. Narrowing it down is always so tricky, I tell ya … but I’ll give it a whirl.

Cheap JAP is hilarious, candid, stylish, and fast becoming a new fave. Plus, you know, she’s a M.O.T., and I loves me a proud Jew.

I’m fairly sure that if Andrea and I lived on the same continent, we’d be such buds. Her blog, A Cat of Impossible Colour, is a real joy: Fresh and honest and fun.

Beth and Mimi at Daily Outfitting undoubtedly think I’m a creepy stalker, as I am often the only one posting comments. But since my comments are typically something along the lines of, “I MUST HAVE THIS ENTIRE OUTFIT IMMEDIATELY,” I’m not fussed. These girls live inside my brain, and somehow find the duds of my dreams on a daily basis.

Hammie is the bravest person I know, and reading about her life is inspiring. You should really be reading about her life, too.

e used to have a far more fashion-y blog, Letters to Marc Jacobs, but I actually prefer her newish Letters From the End Consumer. Her offbeat humor and wry observations make me deeply happy.

I feel like I’ve professed my love of Ambika’s (Into) The Fray before … but never enough b’love for this girl. Smart, skilled, sweet, and supportive. Love her, love what she writes … and hope she’ll pick this up so I can start loving the blogs she reads.

And for the I-do-like-non-shoe-related-readings pick, we have the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee. I cannot look at this blog without melting into a little pool of kitteny bliss.
