#4 - Understanding a fashion blog!

Since I'm new to the whole "fashion blogging" world, I thought "hey maybe some of my readers are new too!" Because of that I thought it'd be nice if we dissected a fashion blog to really get an understanding of how much fashion lingo is used throughout one entry. This competitive and creative industry basically has it's own language and for one to get ahead in the world of fashion- you need to notice and use it! One of the most prominent fashion blogs out there is, The New York Time's "On the Runway". Cathy Horyn, the largest contributor to the blog, never fails to leave her readers entertained and enlightened. She tackles the latest runway shows, trends, award shows, etc. and keeps her readers up to date!
