15 Stylish Sites That Continue to Blow My Mind

TAKE A BOW! (applause)

Lucky Style Spotter -- Want to see how other stylistas wear their jeans? Care to share your thoughts in a fabulous forum with tons of fashion topics? Brought to you by the one and only Lucky Magazine, this site gives me daily fixes of all that makes my world go 'round.

Chic Galleria -- Can't we all just get along? Working alongside the most amazing entrepeneurs, designers, and health experts; on Chic Galleria, I can proudly shout "Yes we can." Women's Fashion, Men's Fashion, Parenting, Gourmet, Wellness, and Fitness are just some of the areas that make up this "Go-to Magazine for all personal care, beauty, and fashion-related must-haves!"

iCiNG -- When Gala Darling shares her thoughts with you, she makes you feel like her best friend. Unique tips, insight, event coverages, interviews, goal setting, and sincerity is what you get when the this tattooed beauty blogs away.

My Fashion Frenzy -- Turn up your speakers when you arrive at writer and editor Nikki Maria's style blog. If you follow the trends of Beyonce, are addicted to America's Next Top Model, get psyched to see which celebrity is displaying the most cutting edge in fashion -- My Fashion Frenzy will do just that. Get you all crazy and stuff.

Join the Gossip -- Dig those hair accessories that Kenley of Project Runway Season 5 wore? Leeann Morrissey of Join the Gossip is one of those bloggers who doesn't just tell you about a new trend, she shows you! From pics of her new feather headbands to before and after pictures of her going from blonde to dark brown, this is an up close and personal look into the life of a journalist with style.

Ideeli -- A "members-only shopping community for trendsetting women" is exploding with couture designer giveaways and deals at a rapid rate. A small fare even gets you front row! Want an invitation? Contact me and I would be happy to send you a code to get in.

Ash Magazine -- Because she's good enough, she's smart enough, and doggonnit, people like her. Ashley-Nicole is endearing, up on the fashion trends, and totally in tune to what is going on the world. I heart Ash Magazine.

Shop It To Me -- I am among the "Trendsetters" listed on Shop It To Me - a site that offers you virtual personal shopping assistance, with a blog that is dy-no-mite! Natalie and Tamra keep the comments coming, while spotlighting their Trendsetters, shopping events, and what's hot in the world of runway.

Chic Kiddie Boutique -- What are the kids wearing these days? Accordng to the cute giggly Monique Frausto, the options of dressing tykes in the latest fashion apparel is massive! This is one U.S. Army vet-gone-blogger who keeps it real.

Fashion, Love & Martinits -- Oh, how do I love thee? Mandy Applebum redefines what it means to be yourself. A self-proclaimed "fabulous and fat female trying to lose the love handles and make it in the fashion industry" is making it my new BFF list.

Shoe Smitten -- What do you get when you combine shoes, a budget-concious shopping flowchart, a college student....and more shoes? Her name is Anna Basham, and loves to pour her heart out in blog posts that touch upon her love of all that is footwear.

Agenda Magazine -- My "Talking Chic" column has graciously been a part of this online fashion publication for nearly five years. Thanks to Kaylene Peoples, my eyes have been exposed to some of the most amazing runway shows in LA. Want to read, watch, AND listen to her interviews with local designers? Agenda Magazine has your back.

Luxe Tips -- From one fashion junkie to the next, I tell ya that Luxe Tips is a lifestyle site for everyone. Because my interests revolve around more than leggings, heels, and cute jackets (What? They do!), this site gives me what I need. I first learned of this sitewhen I stumbled upon the blogger's post on Gwen's L.A.M.B. perfume. Enough said.

Beauty Chat -- Familiar with this blog? Yup, it's one of my babies that I don't think I can ever part with. Amazing contributors and a fabulous designer keep this site running and attracting fellow "Beauty Chatters." From plastic surgery and skincare to fashion and self-help tips, you gotta give it to Beauty Chat for having a diverse appeal.

Eye 4 Style -- "Deals & Steals" is just some of what you will get when you take part in the Eye 4 Style experience. A recent favorite post of mine is on the blogger's rundown of the Lucky Shops event in NY. Was I jealous? That was only the half of it.
