It's funny to see how we all read pretty much the same blogs. DearGolden is pretty much a given :)

I like

http://zuburbia.com/blog/?bloggerURL=/

She covers all era's some jewelry as well. Also she list her favorite finds from e-bay (which is a website that i can't seem to get a handle on?) and etsy. She also relates vintage to what is hot right now in fashion...I find it helpful when trying to find something to wear! A perfect blend of yesterday and today.

and also http://thechurchofvintage.blogspot.com/

Because of Polly, I now carry a tide stain stick in my purse to check the stubbornness of vintage stains while I am thrifting! Smart girl!

Really though I check you here for each post. I have learned so much about vintage jewelry from you and that is what I look for in a vintage blog!

Cheers

One that I was going to mention is Dear Golden, but then I remembered that you guys are already friends!

So here are some of the ones I've found recently:

I'll add two more, but I have to say I really like your blog because it focuses on vintage jewelry. There are way more vintage clothing than vintage jewelry blogs. I hope you share with us some of the knowledge you're gleaning!

So here they are (I don't have to check them everyday because they are in my blog reader, for which I heartily recommend bloglovin'):

Oooh! This is a great idea!

Oh man, I have so many blogs on my list it's so hard to choose.

Firstly, I second: http://thesnailandthecyclops.blogspot.com
Francesca is just too perfect!

I am so obsessed with:
http://teenangster.net/
Alison is funny & unique and she is on the pulse! She finds the best stuff in fashion, art, culture, food ...

Good luck, miss! You are bound to succeed! Your shop makes me want to buy jewelry, and I don't even wear any!

E. Driscoll said...

Oh fantastic for you Duff! What a brilliant idea! I know it will be a great success!

Obviously, as many people said above, Dear Golden is about the first blog I check everyday....

It's hard to pick two ( I check about ten to twelve or so a day) however I'll suggest two Australian blogs which might be a bit different to the American blogs in terms of style....

www.ladymelbourne.com.au
www.superkawaiimama.com.au

Jacqueline said...

Congrats and best of luck, dear friend.

Some blogs I enjoy:

http://www.designspongeonline.com/

and

http://www.re-nest.com/

More design/diy/ than fashion-y, but perhaps good for ideas..

I also recently started following this - http://www.thebudgetfashionista.com/ - perhaps more in your vein, but I don't yet love it like I do the other two.

Andrea said...

first, what a darling post! Two blogs I read everyday (sometimes I check back every couple hours, its bad) are:

A beautiful mess by Elsie www.elsiecake.com
&
Ruffled www.ruffledblog.com

elsie just bought a vintage shop in her city filled with stock that she and her sis are turning into a vintage/handmade/cupcake shop!

Ruffled is all about vintage inspired weddings, some of the weddings she posts are really too lovely in detail to describe. Do check out both!

Em said...

There are a lot of great ones already listed--I love teenangster and vixenvintage, as well as several others. There are a lot of very popular ones out there like lululetty (love this one), sallyjanevintage, and theglamourai.com (she makes jewelry from vintage pieces and has great personal style). But the two I will list are:

dearbeatrice.blogspot.com (after her clothes pictures she has a cute feature called details that shows the jewelry/accessories she used to style her outfits).

thecatspajamasblog.blogspot.com (her blog is very sweet and organic; noncommercial; she's a true collector; I always like the vintage jewelry she selects).

Karen/Small Earth Vintage said...

You have small and very *neat* handwriting! Here are two of (many!) favorites:

Fuzzylizzie's The Vintage Traveler is always chock-full of great information about vintage clothing:

http://fuzzylizzie.bravejournal.com/index.php

Eartha Kitsch's blog always makes me laugh, and her home inspires me (mostly vintage decor and funny stuff):

I love visiting your site! I know you asked for blogs, but as it seems like we're all reading the same ones, instead I am giving the title of a book I enjoy:

"I Love Your Style" by Amanda Brooks -- it has something for everyone -- vintage, fashion, style and super photos!!

I hope you enjoy it -- it's one of my favourites!

alexkeller said...

i already read a lot of the blogs posted, but there are some that i'll have to go check out! i was actually going to suggest Karen at Small Earth Vintage :) but since she's already commented.....
how about http://sfgirlbybay.com/ and
http://www.creaturecomfortsblog.com/

Megan said...

Not sure this is exactly what you are looking for, but I would say check out The Satorialist, (if you haven't already) http://thesartorialist.blogspot.com. Not exclusively vintage, but still beautiful people putting together beautiful outfits.

Deidre said...

I always check Clever Nettle (www.clevernettle.com) because Anja's photographs are really inspiring. And definitely Huzzah Vintage (www.huzzahvintage.com) because Gina always makes me laugh.

Dip-tea said...

I seem to be adding more and more blogs to my list. A lot a visit are already listed here (and I'm eager to check out the ones I haven't read yet, too). Here are two I visit often.

Late Afternoon (http://popcultureafternoon.blogspot.com)
This is mainly a fashion/personal style blog of Liz from San Francisco. She mixes vintage pieces with new ones in interesting ways. She also loves jewelry, especially rings.

Casey's Elegant Musings (http://blog.caseybrowndesigns.com/)
Casey loves vintage clothes and style. She sews a lot, too. Many of her outfits are based on vintage patterns.
