On This Day in Fashion

Another great website that I've stumbled across:


This is such a fun website.  On This Day in Fashion is an "online blogazine that offers daily doses of fashion happenings from both today and the past".  There's a daily post that tells you who's who in the fashion world that is getting another year older and celebrating a birthday.

Here's an example from last week:
Fabulous Fashion Birthdays for June 13
People in fashion born on June 13:
Lucy Christiana, Lady Duff Gordon, British designer, 1863
Mary Kate Olsen, American actress and designer; 1986
Ashley Olsen, American actress and designer; 1986 Read More »
(I have to admit...I like those girls~)
My favourites are the loads and loads of posts on movie style (cinemode) and the wonderful stories behind the fashion.

For example, when you click on the link about Audrey Hepburn's little black dress in Breakfast at Tiffany's ...

...what you're really going to read about is the fascinating relationship between Givenchy and Edith Head and how this movie changed the reigning Dior "New Look" silhouette that was so popular to something much more sleek and gamine.

In the stories section I can't even decide which story to feature because they're all so fascinating!  There's everything from little known facts about famous designers, models, and photographers to those whose names we've unfortunately forgotten.


You will get lost in this website.  My goal is to read one article a day but I guarantee you, once you start, it's hard to stop~
