Style Sessions Link Up + Introducing Bloggers Closet


I have been looking forward to this edition of Style Sessions for as long as I can remember. Over the last few months, you may recall I’ve mentioned a big project I have been working on. In early 2013, I took a leap of faith and began a journey inspired by you… today is the launch and words can’t really describe my excitement.

When I started Style Elixir, I instantly became so passionate about blogging. Our community and the people within it are amazing; the inspiration, creativity, enthusiasm, friendship and culture… there is nothing else quite like it! Of course, I also fell head-over-heels in love with all the gorgeous fashion! I noticed so many fellow bloggers with beautiful clothes, shoes, accessories and jewels. It made me think, their closets must be incredible – and also overflowing!

Have you ever wanted to go inside and shop your favorite bloggers closet? Or are you a blogger with an over-flowing closet?

STYLE Q&A WITH VALE…

What is your go-to look?  I’ll wear almost anything as I love to experiment and to change. Anyway, my go-to look involves jeans that I can easily accessorize with high heels and a statement piece, for example a sequin sweater or nice jacket. I never forget a beautiful bag that stands out and often a statement necklace.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  After a real tartan galore, one of my favorite fall/winter trends so far, I am currently totally hooked by the pink coat trend and from faux fur jackets. I’ve been buying many outerwear pieces lately. I also have a growing fedora hats collection.

What inspired you to start your blog?  I started my blog about 3 years ago because I wanted to share my everyday outfits, my finds and my wishlist with people from all over the world. I totally love blogging and I am thankful for all the feedback and for the people I get to know thanks to it!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  My foundation – Guerlain’s “Lingerie de Peau”, Benefit “That gal”, a silky pink primer and black Make Up Forever “Aqua smoky lash” mascara.

How would you describe your style?  My stile is eclectic, I love both casual and elegant outfits. I like to follow trends but I always try to give my looks the personal touch. I am fascinated by the way what we wear can help us to build self-confidence and find our true self.

  41. Congrats, Lauren! Looking forward to checking it out , sounds amazing and am very excited for you :)

  42. Hey Lauren – I have been out of the blogging loop for a few months (found out I was pregnant early Nov. and just got lazy). I miss linking up for style sessions but so glad to see that you are still going strong and look absolutely amazing as usual. I LOVE the Bloggers Closet website, it’s so perfectly put together and organized and such a great idea. Congrats!!

  43. Bloggers Closet looks terrific! Congratulations on the launch. I will start shopping there right away! It’s a great collection of pieces.

  44. Congrats Lauren! This is such an exciting endeavor you’ve started!
    I can’t wait to look through all of the closets and your website itself! Way to go :)

    xo, Paige

  45. Congratulations, Lauren!!! Wow. I am super impressed. This is great. I always wondered why there wasn’t one place for bloggers closets and I always wondered the same thing – do bloggers sell their items? P.S. I was wondering when we were going to see the blonder hair on your blog :-)

  46. Good luck with your new adventure! x

  50. Lauren, you are amazing. When I worked with you just a month ago, I had no idea you were working on something so huge! You were so on top of everything with my sponsorship even while balancing all of this! You’re definitely proof that hard work pays off. Congrats on everything! I’m definitely now a proud member of Bloggers Closet!

  51. LAUREN YOU ARE AMAZING!!!

    Bloggers CLOSET!! WOW. Who would have known that you were planning something so original? Brilliant. I can’t even imagine how many bloggers put themselves in debt to be able to offer the latest looks for their readers, only to be stuck with too many clothes and inadequate outlets like ebay to sell them.

    THIS IS brilliant. This is better than affiliate marketing, this is so forward thinking.

    Honestly, I’m impressed and I think your site will have a huge impact. I will be creating my closet to sell my HUGE collection of alligator and python belts that can’t be found anywhere online because they are all from small artisans in the area of Italy where I live.

    Thank you for this idea, for investing your money and time to create it and I’m so happy to be able to participate.

    It will be a huge success.
