One of my biggest inspirations right now (as far as fashion bloggers go) is Chiara Ferragani. If the name Chaira Ferragani does not sound familiar to you, you may also know her as The Blonde Salad. The Blonde Salad started out in 2009, before the bloggisphere took off and became the playing field it is today.
Chiara is so much more than a blogger, she is a published author, designer and has been a spokes person and model for Guess. The things that Chiara has accomplished are things that I have only dreamed of! Since starting her blog she has been named blogger of the moment by Teen Vogue back in 2011, while she was still studying law. By 2011 she had already reached 1 million visitors. She has also collaborated with with Dior, Louis Vuitton and Chanel to name a Few.
Her shoe collection (Chiara Ferragani Collection) has a distinct look to it, that almost reminds me of this seasons Fendi. Known for what I like to call the “winking shoes” (the real name being the “Flirting”). Her shoes have are known for their often glittered base and animated expressions, images and words. From Kissing lips to literal winking eyes, her shoes are quirky and fun and are almost toy like.
I’ve always known about the Poppy ,and the Flirting style, but one of the things I love about her brand is the name that she comes up with for her patterns on her shoes. My absolute favourites (apart from Poppy) are the
and of course “Poppy”
Although the brand is mostly known for its iconic shoes, you can to take the well known wink from your slippers to your phone, with her Capsule Collection.
I hope some day to have a blog as successful as hers. Her blog is about more than an outfit of the day. She covers beauty, travel, life styles and is almost like a vision board for any blogger.
