I’ll save you some time weeding through the Internet for this week’s best posts, so here’s a look at some links from around the Blogads network that I’ve found particularly entertaining this week:

Immaculate Infatuation’s favorite Busboys review Catch:

Reviewing a seafood restaurant from a dirty bath tub is just so on point.

WSWCM capture how the Busboys may have felt after their Catch meal:

Tomorrow is another day.

Betches Love This spotlights “Lena Dunham Auditions for Zero Dark Thirty” as the video of the day:

To be fair, I’d ask to take the cupcake, too. Otherwise, that’s just wasteful.

Tom and Lorenzo give a rundown of the Oscars’ red carpet fashion:

There’s plenty more Oscar/after-party coverage on the site, too. My favorite highlight went to J.Law’s after-party dress.

GalaDarling shares a few of her favorite February things:

I can definitely vouch for her manicuring rec. Looking forward to more from this column!

#SMW13 Recap: The Democratization of Fashion: Are Consumers Haute Or Not?

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Last week, I had the pleasure of chatting with Eugenia Chien of Polyvore, Stefan Loble of bluffworks.co, and Carrie Hammer of CarrieHammer.com about a shift we’re seeing in today’s fashion industry. Historically, the industry has had a top-down approach to fashion; trends were decided months before designs were produced or shared on the runway. Rather than asking fashionistas what they liked, brands told them what was “haute” and dictated where fashion was going.

Now, platforms like Kickstarter, Polyvore, Pinterest, Etsy, Storenvy (and the list goes on) allow consumers to put the power back in the hands of the people. Rather than just following trends, consumers are revolutionizing the industry. They can’t find what they want from the big brands, so tastemakers are creating what they (and their friends) want.

Check out this great recap of our convo below!

Like looking into a mirror.

No one’s tying that girl down.

Immaculate Infatuation always knows the best places to go eat your emotions:

I’ll take a deep-fried sweet potato for one, please.

In honor of Beyonce’s killer showing of hardwork and excellence at Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, let’s go ahead and celebrate her in addition to some other fierce ladies around the Blogads network:

First, The White Sade reminds us why we’re meant to be the fourth member of Destiny’s Child:

I’d like to know where I can get a puppy purse like that.

IMBOYCRAZY always gives the most entertaining “blind leading the blind” advice:

I appreciate the confirmation that sleeping with your makeup still on is the mark of an exciting life rather than just being lazy.

Apocalypstick unleashes “the battle cry of the female blogger:”

Hypothetical winky faces are the worst.

Raise your blood orange mimosas, and cheers to all of the above with thanks to The Forest Feast’s recipe:

It’s always the right time for mimosas. Brunch be damned.
