Complementary colors. The kind of stuff we learned in kindergarten. Cobalt blue and apple red are 2 colors that look amazing together and in any outfit; plus the Fall palette can be so muted, I crave something fresh and eye-catching that’ll distract me from the early sunsets.

vancouver fashion blog,

Time to spill my secrets.. again.

A few weeks ago I wrote an article that discussed 5 Tips For Beginner Fashion Bloggers, which made me realize I have so much more to share, so it’s time for another edition and this time it’s sharing the best programs that I know of, that are operating to benefit the blogger and come with a personal recommendation.

•     •     •

  • Etail PR. This is one of the first programs I was ever involved in. After you’ve signed up, you can apply for brand campaigns and if you’re approved, you can choose 3 samples a month, 1 of which will be sent right to your doorstep. Although getting free product can give you experience working with brands, you do have to pay attention to the timeframe as they do require you to post within 30 days of receiving product. Sign up here.

  • Lookbook & Chictopia. 2 of the top fashion community websites that allow you to connect with fashionistas around the world and post your own lookbook photos. They also include forums on a variety of topics that offer the opportunity for site-wide interaction. Sign up for Lookbook & Chictopia here.

  • Verlico. A local social platform that recently started edging into the spotlight, Verlico is a developing fashion community with a lot to offer; your looks are sorted into albums followers can ‘like’ and ‘shop’ your photo in a matter of clicks straight from the website or from your blog. My favorite part about Verlico is that you can upload & tag your looks straight from your website and when you’re juggling a handful of social media platforms, the all-in-one option is very handy. Plus, every tagged look strengthens your SEO rank. Need I say more? Sign up here.

  • Reward Style. Everyone’s heard of Reward Style and if you think not, you will next time you see a liketoknowit.com/uh42 link on someones Instagram post. Reward Style is simply a way to get paid for all the brand promotion you do. Sign up, get approved and start hyperlinking your posts with affiliate links to the products your wearing and every sale made through your link earns you a little bit of extra cash. Sign up here.

  • Bloglovin’. Google friend connect is dead and Bloglovin’ is the newest platform for bloggers and blog readers to cross-post and follow along in one handy spot. Once you’ve followed a few blogs, they’re sorted from newest to oldest and the website boasts many extra features, such as exploring other categorized blogs, your ranking within the website and getting the chance to vote for best photography/food/beauty/fashion blog in an annual awards contest! Sign up here. Follow me here.

•     •     •

The key to a successful blog is quality content and networking. A combination of using the above websites offers the chance to gain marketing experience, build brand relationships and make connections all over the world with people who share your passions. You’re welcome.

I’ve been lusting over capes for far too long so I finally scooped one up from Style Moi and it was everything I could ask for and more.

It’s like a drop of magic, everything this cape touches can turn any outfit into a sort of modern superwoman look, especially with these sharp shoulders and clean lines and who doesn’t want to strut around feeling like a mega babe all day?

Oooh, and this post features a special little art piece from a collaboration I did with a New York fashion illustrator. The splash of pink is my favorite part!

Dress-wearing days are pretty numbered here in Vancouver, so if I’m going to risk freezing my legs off, it’ll be for a dress that reminds me of summer and the sweet, sweet sunshine.

A bit of news! I recently got a new job and my plate has been so full every day between (now) 2 jobs and full-time at school, I’ve been feeling so grateful to have my blog as my separate space to unwind. The busier life gets, the more creative I feel and it all gets poured into this website. Judging by this outfit, it’s pretty clear how hectic I’ve been feeling lately. 2manyprints2handle.
