Links a la Mode

Just to recap for those of you who don't know, Links a la Mode is a group on Independent Fashion Bloggers Network. People submit a link and the editors pick 20 links - everyone who is part of this group posts the links to their blogs.

A few of you have commented on the choices in the links list before so I'm just letting you know I didn't pick them out myself, but (while I read them all) I am bolding the ones I find most interesting!

Behind the clothes

Edited by: Florrie Clarke of Intrinsically Florrie

It's war of the underwear this week! What can lingerie do for our figures, what does body shaping underwear say about our feminist principles and how does our choice actually affect our health?

The post that will stay with me this week is The Button Owl's, which broke my heart. Fashion isn't just about vanity, but how we present ourselves to the world and this is all the more important when you have troubles to hide.
