West Coast vintage/modern fashion blogs

20 03 2011

For those of you who are into the blog scene, I thought I’d recommend two West Coast blogs that focus on vintage and alternative fashion.

The first is a blog called, ‘Calivintage‘ which is a personal style blog compiled by Erin from California. Each day, you can find outfit posts along with fashion inspiration, from antique jewelry finds to high-end fashion shoots and ad campaigns. Erin is also a writer for ModCloth and keeps a Tumblr, which is perfect for a quick, fashion fix during the day. Here is a posting Erin did as a guest blogger for Rebecca Minkoff’s blog, Minkette. The model is Erin, and the clothes are all hers.

The other blog is called, ‘Clever Nettle,’ which is the product of anja louise verdugo, a Canadian living in Portland, Oregon. The blog includes interviews with local fashionistas, adorable spreads by anja herself, and photo shoots. Anja also  sells vintage clothing and art in her Etsy store. Her Tumblr can be found here. This is a spread anja made for her blog in celebration of the supermoon last night. She also compiled a gorgeous layout for an amber-hued supermoon.

I just love the flair of both of these gal’s blogs. Each blog is a perfect mix of modern and vintage fashion inspiration. And the fact they are both creating their own spreads and content is exciting. Check them out, and maybe, your daily get-up will become a bit funkier! Calivintage and Clever Nettle; spreading fierce fashion to everyday women.
