Gala Darling did a great post on what it means to be beautiful in fashion blogging, and followed it up with another great post on other bloggers' takes on beauty in fashion blogging. Really interesting stuff!

ELLE UK did a great feature called ELLE's Working Wardrobe, where they break down the clothes ELLE staffers wear to the office. Great if you want some inspiration for your career wardrobe.

Speaking of ELLE, if you're interested in a career in fashion journalism, you need to enter Nokia and ELLE's contest, Search for the Next Style Correspondant! You could win the chance to cover New York Fashion Week and have your work featured in ELLE - pretty cool, huh? Also, on a personal note, I'm one of the contest judges! You guys have a few more days to enter, so get your entries in soon if you're interested!
