Where have all the fashion bloggers gone?

In answer to my own question, they have moved over to Instagram. Have to admit I was one of the holdouts.  I am on IG now too (as tamaschen) but have stopped posting full length images of myself. I so love the blogging format and it isn't as restrictive as Instagram, such as not being able to post a link in comments and the image needs to originate from your phone (I still utilize my digital camera for some photo shoots). My work around for the latter is to go to my blog, save the image to my phone and then post on IG. It makes sense for the fashion bloggers to utilize Instagram. They can post the OOTD (outfit of the day).
The fashion behind the getting ready image is a $3 JonesWear plaid summer suit (with coat length jacket) purchased at Thrift Town for the 50% off clothing day.  With a different pair of heels, this will be my go-to interview suit.  

For those interested in my thrift shop finds, read on:

Sutter Creek's Interfaith Great Finds was my go-to thrifting spot during the latest heat wave. I purchased the bright orange woven piece and a $1 mystery bag of fabric along with a quilting book, two necklaces, a yellow frame and flower magnets totaling less than $9.
Contents of the mystery bag of fabric were varied and colorful. I popped them all in a washable lingerie bag so they would be freshened up and fray less as they washed. Too bad I didn't think of that sooner - there was a lot less fraying.

Pattern of the Day is a sassy Simplicity from 1969.

Do you post on Instagram? Have you noticed more people moving over to that site?


  1. I love that first photo! Yes, I have joined the Instagram crowd after MUCH protesting. But now I'm there I like it. That said, nothing, nothing can beat this blogging community, which I love so much. Great thrifting finds!

  2. I've only been blogging for a couple of months, and don't mean to stop now, as I love it so much. I'm not on Instagram, but then again I don't have a smartphone. Yet! When I do I might branch out to Instagram like you did. I'm loving your thrifting finds and the Simplicity pattern! xxx

  3. nope. If you need a smart phone to do that, it's not going to happen. I don't have a smart phone, my phone is attached to the wall.
