A major perk of blogging is that you get to make new friends in your area of interest. Many of these may be “virtual” friendships, akin to having a penpal. But once in a while, you get to meet in person. This year, I was lucky enough to meet Lizzie Bramlett of The Vintage Traveler in Atlanta and Giselle La Pompe-Moore of Fashioning the Past in New York.
Fashioning the Past is one of my favorite blogs! Giselle pens some amazing articles on historical fashion. She talks about garment construction and history in a way that is easy to understand, while using great images to illustrate her point. Her recent article on the kimono is a perfect example.
I can’t wait to go back to New York and hang out with her! Until then, I’ll just continue reading her blog. If you haven’t been to her site, be sure to read the post on The Queen & Fashion. It’s a favorite of mine.
