The internet and social media is constantly evolving, much like the world of fashion. There is always the controversial pressure surrounding fashion, the pressure to look good and be able to afford a huge wardrobe. It always seems that bit far fetched and unattainable…welcome the fashion bloggers.
The fashion blogger is the girl down the road, who may well have gone to your school, the girl you can relate to just like your friends. These are real people with a realistic budget (and physique) that are managing to take the fashion and social media world by storm. Brands are taking notice of these girls; they can even win awards for their blogs! These are girls with a love for clothes who wear the current high street trends in proper sizes and still look amazing.
Here’s a little lowdown on our favourite fashion bloggers:

Patricia Bright– www.patriciabright.co.uk
Patricia is most probably more familiar with YouTube than any one! Her very honest video about how she started a fashion degree but found it so boring she went into finance is proof that anyone can be a blogger!
Her YouTube is full of ‘outfit of the day’ and ‘get ready with me’ videos but also great advice videos on being a student, saving money and how to be happy! Patricia’s blog is really inspiring and her fashion sense is such a mix of tailoring and casual you are bound to find a style that suits you.
Patricia’s husband Mike sometimes makes a cameo and is actually pretty hilarious too, he doesn’t get the recognition he needs!
Victoria Magrath– www.inthefrow.com
Winner of a Company Blogger Award she started her blog to share her ideas and opinions around fashion. Having found reading other peoples blogs a way of chilling out in the evenings Victoria found that she loved reading product reviews and recommendations.
We can’t really mention Victoria Magrath without giving her luscious locks a shout out too! Not many girls can pull of pink or purple hair, especially to work! Being a full time fashion retail lecturer too Victoria’s blog is an integral part of her work. She is able to keep up to date and in the know with everything that is happening in fashion and beauty. Also giving her advice and expertise to the next generation means that they can carry on in her blogging footsteps.
