Jewelry Fashion Coming of Age On-Line

26 Jan


Accessories have historically taken the back seat when it comes to their inclusion in the world of fashion. However, I believe this is starting to change. More and more attention has begun to evolve around jewelry, hand bags, shoes, and other accessories, and much of this new sway in fashion reporting is due to the Internet.

Fashion aficionados abound on line and as a result accessories – those "little Extras" that can make or break an outfit – are beginning to get equal billing when it comes to documenting fashion trends. Along with my own Jewelry Weblog here at Creative Weblogging, where I report on jewelry fashion, there is a wide circle of knowledge currently forming in the on-line fashion world. Just a tip of the fashion accessory iceberg:

  • The Manolo Shoe Blog
  • The Purse Blog
  • The Bag Lady
  • Shiny Shiny
  • Cosmopolitan Accessories
  • A Clean Pair of Heels
  • I'm throwing a few examples out there because there are so many great accessories blogs these days, but I think you get the picture. (In fact, feel free to post the URL of other accessory jewelry blogs in the comments for this post.)

    As an accessories lover, especially when it comes to jewelry of course, I'm excited to see this new trend in fashion reporting, but I'm still not satisfied. In fact, I think it is way past time for the off-line media to catch up to us. For example, I'd love to see a magazine about accessories for the masses instead of only industry periodicals for those who are "in the business," as they say. Another neat idea would be Project Runway type show for jewelry designers or hand bags designers.

    What about you? What do you think it will take for off-line media to catch up to the rest of us?
