Caitlin was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her fun, suitcase travel lifestyle and fresh southern style.With a figure that nearly looks as though her long, bouncy locks will topple her over, everything she puts on looks more darling than the last.

Who says high fashion is only in the big cities? Greenville fashionista Jenny Hall runs Boho Style File and we dare you to compare her to her metropolitan colleagues. As its title would suggest, Hall’s style has a bohemian feel, with tons of prints, textures, layers and color.
Hall regularly features pieces from Upstate boutiques and businesses, creatively mixing fashion with food, florals and fun with a local flair that makes her looks both accessible, relatable and inspiring. It’s added fun to figure out which cool Greenville walls, gates and cityscapes make it into her photos.

While we are far from petite, we still love Jean from Extra Petite’s preppy New England style. Standing just under 5 feet tall, she offers great insights for small-statured girls but showcases looks that translate just as well to Amazonian women and everyone in between. And while we’re not quite sure where it all goes, Jean’s Instagram features drool-inducing food and drink with flair.

It’s a true lifestyle blog; Kerr also posts about interiors, entertainment and beauty.

Fashion blogs become popular through the influence of celebrities as these celebrities are considered to be most knowledgeable in fashion styling. Fashion blogs are also a forum where one can discover where a certain celebrity purchased their item of clothing from. Overall, it gives advice to an individual on the biggest styles and trends for a specific season.
Celebrity orientated blogs are always popular with the general masses. 'Frugal Fashionista' is a blog that utilises a celebrity look. The actress, Gwyneth Paltrow puts a focal point on fashion consciousness and provides any reader with the essential information on the traditional origins of fashion.
Other fashion blogs are rated highly as the writers of the blog are held to have a passion for fashion through their unique take on the fashion industry. 'The Cherry Blossom Girl' which is written by a French designer prefers to give an artist's view of fashion through the photographs of the French writer/designer Alix and uses him as a fashion model. It provides a creative, unheard look on fashion from someone who clearly loves what practice.
Writers of other fashion blogs are held to have a passion for fashion for a different take on the fashion industry. 'The Cherry Blossom Girl' which is written by a French designer gives an artist's view of fashion through the pictures taken by French writer/designer Alix who she uses as a fashion model. It provides a creative, unseen take on fashion from an individual who clearly adores what they practice. 'The Satorialist' is a blog of the fashion buyer Scott Schuman who uses his photography taken in New York to tell a story about fashion.
A Fashion blog can also be popular if the reader can associate themselves with the writer and enjoy their writing. 'GoFugYourself' is a blog with a comedic element from two girls who have covered fashion week in New York and comment on celebrity styles in a way that makes the reader listen. 'Fashion Toast' hosts a readership from those in their twenties but is also appropriate for an older group for that source of inspiration.
The fashion blog is not only about style. It also has a degree of emotional connect. Life experiences are cleverly leveraged by the most proficient bloggers without detracting from style and fashion. This makes their blogs imminently readable and draws the reader in. Bloggers draw in their audiences with interesting sections like 'again and again", "faceoff" "caption this" and much more. They have a fun and informative style of writing which makes for the extraordinary success of fashion blogs.
