Blogs I like: Qqueen of Hearts
A lot of people think that all I do is sit around my computer hating fashion bloggers, but I don’t. Sometimes I stumble upon a fashion or fashion related blog that I really like, and Qqueen of Hearts is one of those. (I don’t understand the double Q though… why is it there?)
The girl behind this blog is named Zoë Badley and she is a journalism student and works as an intern in Trend Hunter.
She doesn’t update frequently, but that’s maybe because she studies and has a job, so I don’t think she has the time to play dress-up with mom and then sit in the computer for 3 hours editing the photos…
So, why do I like this blog?
Look at her. She’s so pretty. She looks like Amy Winehouse without the god awful,excessive make up and the drugs.
First of all, she dresses nice and doesn’t brag about the labels of her clothes. If you read her blog, you’ll notice that she doesn’t always writes what she’s wearing. Also, it’s refreshing to see a girl wearing clothes that most people can actually afford. It’s not necessary to wear over $2000 in clothes and shoes to look pretty and fashionable.
I think she dresses way better than the girl from The Blonde Salad, who’s always wearing designer stuff and ends up looking … well… kind of boring. It’s refreshing to see a fashion blogger that’s not a label whore.
Second, she combines her journalism work with her blog, and I like that because her blog is not a shrine to herself. She’s one of the few who actually writes something more than “oooo!! This collection is amazing and I love the details!!” or “OMG! LOOK AT THIS!! Is this insanely rad or what?!” You know what I’m talking about.
I also love the way she does her hair, it’s a good way to catch attention without looking ridiculous. Hate the rapist glasses though…
Of course, this blog has it’s downsides, like this:
“Oh and let’s not forget those caged high heels ! All I know is that my feet are literally missing out on passion and it isn’t fair.”
Yeah… well, hunny, feet can’t literally miss anything. They are feet! Maybe you can miss out on passion, or maybe your feet can figuratively miss out on passion, but not literally, because feet don’t have minds of their own. They are feet. But, ok, I’ll let that one pass.
Rapist glasses. Why?? God…I hate rapist glasses. I hope she needs the glasses, because if she’s wearing them only for styling purposes, well, that would be dumb.
Anyway, I invite you to read her blog, It’s worth knowing. I don’t usually like girly girls, but I love her. I’m middle class, full-time advertising student, so it’s nice to see a girl I can relate to.
