Cityblis Summer Picks


I was recently contacted by Cityblis and offered media access. I am so glad that Cityblis reached out to me because their website is glorious!

Cityblis is a website which seeks to lift talented designers into larger markets.

They have been described as a cross between Polyvore, a lovely spot where you can curate outfits, accessories, and other pieces to publish online, and Lookbook, an e-place where style savants can show case their style.

I love that, with Cityblis, new designers, by the sheer will of their fans and buyers, can raise their profile in the fashion industry.

My own style weakness, aside from bags, rings, and earrings, is dresses. I like skater dresses, bandage dresses, and long maxi dresses when they come in at the right spots!  Anything super feminine, fitted, and flattering to my curves is alright with me.

Cityblis, much to my delight, features a lot of European designers. I like European designers because they tend to delight in dressing curves.

This is also probably why I tend to reach for vintage dresses…

I spent a lot of time, while browsing through Cityblis designers page, being close to tears as I drank in all the glorious dresses, skirts, and feminine blouses.

So please cry with me now…
