Friday Five.

Happy International Women's Day! In honor of this day, I want to start a new feature here at Style Is Style. Okay, it's more or less just because the idea struck me this AM, and not just because of International Women's Day.

Even when I write/post less, I am consistently reading many, many blogs. So now, I want to start featuring posts that I really enjoyed from the week(s). I love the community aspects of blogging, and sharing some of my favorite bloggers feels like a natural way to discuss and appreciate the many wonderful women (and men) of the Web.

I read Celia's article about personal style for The Regis this week, and it deeply resonated with me. Style should always mean falling more in love with oneself.

Christina's blog is a wealth of unconventional style and witty commentary, and this post about Viva Vena's "Fashion Film" was a perfect example of why. Hilarious, on point, and highlighting a wonderful design house as well.

I'm lucky to be working in a creative environment with a lax dress code (read: no dress code!). But my job requires some means of function from my wardrobe, which means that these days I am always on the lookout for clothes that allow for ease and comfort, without sacrificing personal style and expression. I can see several pieces from Calivintage's feature on Dusen Dusen's Fall 2013 which could seamlessly make their way into my wardrobe.

This isn't a new post, but The Closet Feminist's post about why fashion bloggers are revolutionary in my opinion, is a must read.

This outfit post is further proof that Bianca is the master of boyish vintage charm. She makes a pant-hater consider wearing trousers every day.

BONUS: An article for those of us who have been feeling discouraged lately (I definitely have) : Refinery29 touches on how to make your dreams come true, without being corny or cheesy.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, let me know what you guys think of this feature, and if you enjoy the articles!

Thank you Lydia! What a sweet, cool idea.... please don't hate me because I hate cats. I'm allergic! My dad left our family for another cat! A cat stood me up at the prom!

Hi There, I just spent a little time reading through your posts, which I found entirely by mistake whilst researching one of my projects. Please continue to write more because it’s unusual that someone has something interesting to say about this. Will be waiting for more!
