Talk about inspiration... I'm happy to see many of my favourite fashion/style bloggers have been included in fashion social network weardrobe's 100 best of 2009 list, namely
The Clothes Horse
Le Blog de Betty
The Cherry Blossom Girl
Le monde de Tokyobanhbao
Sally Jane Vintage
Hot Chocolate and Mint
Lulu and your mom
Style Rookie (her link on the list doesn't work)
Song of Style
It's her factory
The about reads:
We at weardrobe have been truly inspired by the creative and amazing styles of fashion blogger in the community. So much so that we decided to create the weardrobe 100 - the best of 2009 street style from the top fashion blogs online. What you see here is a compilation of the top 100 personal style shots of the year from all over the web. Each photo was selected to represent each fashion blogger's unique style. From London to Stockholm, Brooklyn to San Francisco, we'd all better keep an eye on these girls in 2010.My big question however is this:
Where the f@ck is Queen Michelle?
After all, Kingdom of Style is a personal style blog bursting with high-quality outfit pictures like the one above, has had a huge following for years now and was ranked #37 on the last Signature 9 99 Most Influential Fashion & Beauty Blogs list, where it was competing along with many professional, non-personal-style blogs, like street style photography heavyweights The Sartorialist and Garance Doré, fashion portals like FabSugar and fashion news pros like The Cut and Fashionologie. Unless Queen Michelle herself was the one who asked not to be included, I find that quite unacceptable.
Other than that, I find the whole project beautifully executed and immensely inspirational. In fact, I hope they soon get a book deal, cause I'd love to have it in print!

UPDATE: I contacted Her Majesty through e-mail and she was kind enough to answer back stating that she wasn't aware of that list. That means no opt-out from her side.
I say, their loss!
