Some blogs I love

Picnic Perfect

I am prompted to do this post by the discovery of Big Girl Small Budget. Tiny Town. I really love this woman's fearless style, self-imposed challenges, and fierce accessory choices. I could learn a thing or two about necklaces from her.

Of course I am a religious follower of my friend Samira's blog, M. O. D. Style, which showcases many of her spot-on, Cali-casual with a few punk, luxe twists outfits, as well as occasional spotlights on designers, style blogs, and looks she loves. All from the perspective of a mother of two.
I totally dig the DIY, slightly nerdy chic of Rebecca over at We Are Large, People. Not only does she have great style, she always goes the extra mile to show you how you can make or buy the look. Bloomie at 30 Dresses in 30 Days is always fearless and fabulous, Deena at Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes, Too brings a British punk sensibility to her looks, and she always seems to know the big stories before anyone else (like when Marc Jacobs announced he would be designing a plus-size line!!!). And of course Xtina at Musings of a Fatshionista always keeps it high fashion and editorial. And I frequently discover more obscure plus-size vendors through her.

There are several more, but none of them are updating much lately. But stick 'em in your RSS anyway (heh, never noticed how that could be punny until now):

What else should I be reading?
