In a couple of days I will be leaving London for two weeks. Destination: South of France. I’m going to let the warm wave of the sun embrace me and probably won’t be delivering many fashion commentaries during that time. I will update with the occasional picture but will probably find it hard to think about fashion while I’m enjoying the beautiful scenery of Cassis. Bliss. Until I come back to London and serious blogging I will be using the Twitter formula: 140 words, short epistles live from the South of France! If you’re on Twitter and want to follow me, you can find me under julystars.
In the meantime, I thought I would introduce you to my much-loved selection of bloggers I check out every day. They’re firmly on the same wavelength as me and feature high up on the ladder of hugely productive and interesting fashion bloggers. Perhaps not as well-known as my favourite established bloggers, who already dominate the blogosphere (see list on the right-hand side of this page), they’re a good read, provide fascinating fashion details and haven’t succumbed to the worthless vanity which somehow envelops so many other fashion bloggers.
Internet blockbusters in the making!

Joanna’s blog is a real showstopper. Her taste, influences and aesthetics have emotional depth and are thrillingly exciting, always capturing the best of fashion in terms of images, brands, music, interiors and occasionally cinematography. Her blog is an enriching experience, especially if you’re interested in thoughtful and intelligent trend commentaries. There are clear traces of a bohemian legacy in her cultural world, which is her real strength. She lives in LA but cultivates an enduring passion for Buenos Aires.
Decade Diary can only be viewed as fresh and enthusiastic. It’s an online mixed show of illustrations created by Bernadette and her favourite fashion images. Nowhere else can such diversity and richness be found. Elegant and ravishing fashion fantasies.
Maya has no trouble capturing the pace and rhythm of street style photography. Her portraits are interesting and brilliant versions of the boys and girls she stumbles upon in New York and LA. She has a beguiling magic touch and should be recognised for the quality of her work and her eye for the ravishing and cool (her singular talent stands out from all the other street style photographers who all fight for the same space and attention).
And if you speak French fluently, Garance Doré, Café Mode and Sale Gamine are three of the best voices coming from Paris and Brussels. They stand out from the crowd with their wholesome, sharp and distinctive comments on the world of fashion. I have a soft spot for Sale Gamine’s blog. Not only does it reflect on the fashion industry but it is also a self-portrait infused with funny moments and intense personal energy.
