Links à la Mode : April 15th

Fashion is Booming

Edited by Fashion Pulse Daily

Style cares not about the economy, so we continue on, falling in love with a fabulous pairs of shoes, lbd, and the perfect little cardie. New boutiques, designers, ideas, and innovative, avant garde concepts continue to emerge, and we can’t help but start a new love story with our latest DIY project, amazing vintage find, department store score, or simply a fabulous floral umbrella. And so, as the title suggests, fashion is booming, creativity is soaring, and we can take a big exhale and shove our worries aside – it’s time to allow ourselves to get excited about wearing some new or all-time favorite spring-weather garments and accessories.

As expected, there was a fabulous round-up of links in the forum as well, all worthy of your eyeballs!

[Note from Jennine] Oh, and if you’re looking for something to do this summer… IFB is looking for interns!

To enter the contest, did you have to enter "Links a la mode" into title before the April 15th deadline? I'm wondering if that's why my submission never made the cut. Or does IFB contact you about making the finals list and THEN you post the Links a la mode title?

I think that you have to post your link on the IFB page by the Tuesday. Each week there is a different editor who chooses the posts on the Thursday. If you are included I think you then have until the following Monday to post the while list on your blog (no one contacts yo, you just check to see if you were included).
