Key Item: The Biker Jacket

One of the staples of women's closet is a biker, it's such a powerful and edgy attire that goes strangely well with everything. I don't imagine anymore my wardrobe without this essential piece, because it saved me many times, when I didn't know how to pair my printed maxi dress or what to add to my knit sweater. It's the easiest way to add some personality to my daily looks.

From Marlon Brando to your stylish neighbor, strolling the international streets or walking the runways, it's the number one choice for an outerwear. So what's new for spring/summer 2013? The biker is having some change of heart, it's not necessarily in leather or with a bold cut, but rather feminine with light materials and sometimes over-sized with a futuristic silhouette.


To blog or not to blog, that's the question!

Broke, a scarce wardrobe, no digital camera, poor English writing skills, living in an exiled city like Tangier (far from the fashion industry) and yet fighting for a spot in the blogosphere. We must be foolish to create a blog under these circumstances, but if we waited for the right time we probably would never started this blog.

Oh the Places We'll Go...

This week we had a lot of thoughtful submissions, with it being Women's History Month, and International Women's day, we had excellent homage's to our female heroes. Traveling seemed to be a big theme with Spring Break coming up, and the weather looking much better these days (in the Northern Hemisphere anyway). And we also had some wonderful tips and tricks for bloggers from the community, which is always nice to see how everyone approached blogging differently. How exactly do you be authentic online? It could be an easier journey than you think.

Trending this spring summer 2013: STRIPES

I don't think I have to remind you that one of the principal trends for the next season is: Stripes.
Why stripes? well because it's a timeless print, that makes a come back every season since the 1800's. It is also a casual and chic appearance that looks fabulous in the street aswell as in the red carpet.
This season, spring summer 2013, many designers included basic items in their collections (like pants, blouses, tshirts,...), giving them a new air with multicolored stripes. Even in the street the fashionistas showed how easy and refined this style could be.

 A Stylish Salad

Edited by: Jess of Fresh Jess

This is my last turn as editor for Links a la Mode, and what a treat it’s been! I’ve read hundreds of blog posts and discovered some wonderful reads I would never have found otherwise. The IFB community is a true gem on the interwebz. There’s a salad in this week’s picks that reflect the entire IFB palate: thoughtful perspectives to incite dialogue, a peek into some of fashion’s biggest events, helpful tips to better your blogging or style, and outfit posts that truly reflect personal style. Some posts are fun and cheeky, not taking fashion seriously. Others are passionate and conversational. All of them reflect IFB as a community. IFB is an invaluable resource for networking and furthering our skills as bloggers, and I’m glad to be here. I’m glad you are too.
