In an article entitled “DIY fashion blogs encourage personal style,” the bloggers note that DIY encourages individual style and fosters a community of sharing, creating a sense of pride in what one has been able to create oneself. From the article:
“People love taking something normal and making it more chic,” [Chic Steals‘ Carly J.] Cais said. “There’s an emergence of an interest in creating current fashion with what you have in your closet and re-interpreting the runways to your own personal taste.”
Though I was a little surprised I didn’t see such mainstay DIY blogs as …love, Maegan or Outsapop included in the roundup – I’m so happy that such a respected news source as CNN recognized this growing crafty community and is helping to further interest in DIY…even including my own little blog in the article!
Thanks so much to Ashley and the whole team at CNN Living for making this possible – I’m in the presence of such amazing bloggers and am so thrilled to have been featured!
