The Charming Owner of Charm & Chain: Ali Galgano

As Ali Galgano searches through her bright Celine tote for her tortoise shell sunglasses, she reviews the tentative details of a holiday project with her publicist. Dressed in a laser-cut Milly dress and Valentino heels, Galgano’s personal style is as bright and unexpected as the opulent baubles that she offers on her site.

      Iconic Price & Style: D'Orsay Flats

      Right after Fashion Week in February I met with the Lyst team at Soho House in West Hollywood. One of the directors had a bag from Satine—the fashion emporium in Los Angeles— in her hands. Inside were a pair of D’Orsay flats from Jenni Kayne.

          Fashionably Saved: How I Save Money & Time by Shopping Smart

          It’s no secret that us fashion bloggers like to shop. We got into the business because of our passion for clothes, accessories and of course, shoes. However, the bigger our blogs get the more pressure we can feel to have the latest fashion gadget (read: hottest bag), and the more our readers look to us as style guides.

          Luckily, the more popular a blogger gets the more gifts we also receive from our favorite brands. However, while we may get the newest denim or jewelry, for most of us, Chanel and Celine are not sending us gifts daily. For me the balance between shopping smart and investing in key and classic pieces rather than on-trend fashion is paramount to my business and bank account.
