Is it possible to not love a blog that you feel was tailored exactly to your style needs? We didn’t think so either. The Fashionista Next Door is just that kind of blog. We’re almost certain that the special feeling of excitement we get while on the blog is courtesy of the blogger herself, Eboni Ife. On the about page Eboni explains that this blog is dedicated to The Fashionista Next Door. “This blog is dedicated to The Fashionista Next Door – you know her when you see her. She works full time, manages a family, attends school at night…there’s nothing she can’t do, and she does it all with so much poise and style… and on a budget! And we all secretly want to be her! Why? because we can’t seem to figure out how she does it all, while looking so fabulous, and all the while making it look so effortless!” Seriously, that right there is just one of the many reasons we love this blog. If we had to tell you all of them, we would be spending too much time typing more words than you may be interested in reading, so after a lot of review and careful consideration we’ve decided to share with you three reasons why we love The Fashionista Next Door.
#1: Versatile Style
Everyone’s seen those style bloggers who seem to always be dressed up, and we’ve seen the other extreme where the bloggers continually reinvent the same type of look or play off of their signature style. Thankfully that is not the case with Eboni. Her style is very versatile, and what she wears depends on where she’s going and/or how she’s feeling that day. If you review her posts from the last two weeks you’ll see that Eboni wore a simple classy look in The Simple Life, a laid back look in Inspired by Kim Kardashian, and a beautiful resort look in Feeling Blue.
There’s nothing we appreciate more than a style blogger with a great take on shoes, and Eboni just might have one of the best shoe choices. We love how she not only tells us where her shoes are from in her outfit posts, but we also enjoy how she shows us her shoe finds. We can’t forget how much fun it is to go on her shoe journeys with her. No worries, if you missed those trips check out these posts, Fab Finds at Off Broadway Shoes! and Fun Times at Baker Shoes, Lenox Square!
#3: Event Access
Eboni gives us a sneak peek in to her fabulous life by grantng us access to events that we aren’t able to attend, but would love to know about. Who doesn’t love a good sneak peak? Just this past weekend she attended the Nene Leakes + ShoeDazzle Shoe Launch Party (and wore a fabulous ensemble). A few weeks ago she was a guest at the Lafeyette 148 Fall 2012 Preview at Saks Atlanta. Stay tuned to the Fashionista Next Door for access to more fabulous fashion events.
Truth be told, we’re “her”. All of us are the fashionista next door. Whether you’re looking to change up your style, find some inspiration or simply enjoy a good style read, The Fashionista Next Door has something just for you.
