Swide This

Swidefeather >>I will come back and add further words to my thoughts on Dolce & Gabbana-produced and branded website Swide.com because it's an interesting development in that luxury brands are now tentatively branching out into content production that isn't banal and chokingly cheesy. 

For now though because I'm about to shoot off, I'll just bung this up and say that Swide have done a very cute interview with me where they asked me to take 'backstage' shots of my blogging environment… aka my messy apartment… I took the opportunity to give the feather headdress, which I randomly bought at Casa Mexico in Hackney, a visual mention.

    Well… I am a little in love with all your little “trinkets”. The little picture was really cute! Your apartment looks so creative

    I love your picture – should have known your apartment would be that stylish! The little ‘think’ sculpture is amazing. I was thinking of making something like that out of cardboard that says READ: got a feeling it wouldn’t look quite so good, though!

    I’M GAGGING AT THE AMOUNT OF MAGAZINES YOU HAVE!!! Although I’m young and you know into the online scene and everything in fashion I would really like for The Magazine and also the fashion show to stay alive!!!!! Maybe I’m vintage or something, but I really like those two aspects and hope they don’t get phased out!

    Great interview. It is fun to read someone who has a smart, strong opinion about being a journalist (something I went to school for). I love how you put emphasis on liking context rather then a bunch of pretty pictures when it comes to good fashion blogs. I think it is something a lot of girls and guys are missing when it comes to a good post (fashion kids have brains to, right?) I definitely agree that Luxirare is a favorite.
    Always a fun.

    I love this, seeing behind the scenes into somebody’s workspace is a treat. Congrats on the interview as well.
    I’m with Seline regarding content and brains in the fashion community. We actually just wrote a post about it and you are a wonderful example of intelligence within the fashion blogesphere!

    I’m glad you got the “Wear children’s headdress when posting pics of your blogging enviro” memo. (http://dresseduplikealady.blogspot.com/2009/06/end-of-era-dawn-of-age.html)
    Just kidding. And self-promoting. Okay, mostly self-promoting.

    I’ve got your blog yesterday from “swide”, i am just graduate from universuty and work in a fashion design company although i was not learing “fashion design” in university. And your blog gives me some confidence and desire about the work I engaged in. I really appreciate what you have done and and I want to say thanks to you.

    I think I love your room. I like that klind of messy rooms which are actualy not messy, you just happen to own too much (in some peoples opinion) stuff. And ofcource you need it all. C:
    I love your shoe collection also.

    I loved your photos, and am a bit gutted that I cldn’t provide any lovely interior shots for my Swide Meet The Bloggers interview. I’ve moved house three times this year, everything I own is in storage and I’ve been living in hotel rooms. They just got somewhat dodgy shotsof me in random locations! LLGxx

    love your ‘blogging environment’ – nothing better than seeing someone’s hectic creative space.
    and also, thank you so much Susie, I am so flattered… I was thinking about giving up my blog (wahhh I sound like such a sook) but um, now I just can’t.. you’re like my blogging hero and you mentioning my blog was an ENORMOUS compliment – and not just on blog terms, but in general fashion terms, I really do hold you in very high regard (don’t mean to sound like a crazy obsessed stalker but i’m just stoked!!! haha)
