Class Project: You

Hey! I wanted to give you all an update!

Remember in August when I posted about possibly doing a research project on fashion blogs? Well, the dream is coming to fruition.

So, for the next phase of the project, I am hoping to talk with people who:
  • keep a blog and
  • post pictures of their outfits on their blogs
I am considering either having these conversations by phone, or by instant message. I anticipate them being approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour long.

That means you! Ela, Annie, Lar, Cath, Christen, Megan, Esme, Christine, Katy, Krystal, Jessica, Robyn, Heshka, Jenni: you are the project inspiration. You're doing something unique, and I'd like to talk to you about it, and analyze it a little bit within the sociological framework, based on information you can provide. I know you're not the only women doing this, so if you don't want to participate, but you know someone who might, that would be great as well.

Also: Bijou Living: I know you don't fit within my qualifications, but you have had a really interesting take on this project, and I would love to interview you as well.

If you're interested, let me know. You can leave a comment or email me at
