We've only been around for four months, but The Penny Rose is thriving. We have five strong regular contributors to the site and two excellent guest contributors. We bring a fashion stylist, a hair stylist, a fashion industry insider, a fashion designer, a publicist and three professional journalists to the mix. Five days a week we write musings on fashion, beauty and design. And, we've joined Independent Fashion Bloggers (a blogging industry insider resource), where we've been kindly recognized twice in the last month for our achievements. The first was an interview that founder Christa Martin did with costume designer Hala Bahmet, who styled clothing for Milla Jovovich in the upcoming movie, "Bringing Up Bobby." Our second shout out was for a recent blog post by Sera Michael who wrote a summertime article on how to wear bright lipstick this season. Read her tips here. You can check out the kind inclusion of The Penny Rose at the Independent Fashion Bloggers website both here and here.
