I remember when I bought my first high fashion magazine. I was twelve and it was the September issue of Elle UK with Lindsay Lohan as the cover girl (back when the world was beginning to see the more out-of-hand Lindsay). One thing that stuck with me about that edition apart from the free Illamasqua Makeup offer with buying a subscription was the “Closet Confidential” of fashion blogger Susie Bubble. I would constantly see her cropping up everywhere from magazines to street style websites to fashion week commentaries and the likes, but I hadn’t actually read her blog properly until now. The “Closet Confidential” in Elle was a mass of colour and there was something very “kawaii” about her style (as the Japanese and Gwen Stefani would put it). Yes, it was cute, but unmistakeably powerful. The type of powerful that would make you stop in the street if you saw her and want to follow her into whatever fantastic world she’s living in. Patterns and unique shapes are never lacking in the London based fashion blogger’s wardrobe; despite being a quiet person as she puts it, her style and ability to mix…anything and everything tastefully speaks volumes. Shouts in fact. What puts Susie Bubble in that category of an “amazing fashion blogger” rather than just an “amazing stylist” is the written detail she includes. If you want to know the story behind her velvet skirt printed with Queen Elizabeth’s portrait, then you need not travel beyond stylebubble.co.uk …unless it’s to actually buy the skirt. Usually with a fashion blog, the idea of it allows the blogger to contribute to the fashion community, and what Susie Bubble contributes is something no one has done before. If you want to find designers that not even Karl Lagerfeld has heard of, or the craziest pieces in the world of innovative fashion, then Susie can give you that. And some wacky outfits to compliment it.
