Those of you who read CF regularly probably know that I was looking for new writers a few months ago. After combing through over 200 applications (!!), I've finally narrowed it down to ten fabulous girls who are going to be contributing their thoughts on fashion this fall semester.
What's Changing at CF?
If you're worried that new writers mean everything will change around here, don't be! Nothing is going to change drastically - the CF you know and love will still be here, and I'll still be writing lots of articles as always. Things are only going to get more fabulous, promise!
Here's what you can expect to see here over the next few months: more frequent updates with even more fresh new articles and fashion tips, up-to-the minute fashion news and trend information, New York Fashion Week coverage (less than 2 weeks away), a more national perspective on fashion (no more New England-centric fashion posts), and much more! I also have a few BIG secret projects in the works that I know you guys are going to love. (More on those soon!)
Without further ado, here's some info about the new CF writers, listed in alphabetical order..
