The Penny Rose Recognition

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

International Love

Note: The Penny Rose is a part of Independent Fashion Bloggers, an international community of style movers and shakers putting their spin on fashion into the blogosphere. This week, Christa Martin, founder and a writer at The Penny Rose, submitted her blog, "Dressing Milla Jovovich" to a weekly contest that IFB hosts. Below is info on the contest, originally found on the IFB website. Cheers!

Perhaps the greatest thing about the IFB community is our diversity. We bring together bloggers from all over the globe, who want to come together and share and learn and talk about fashion! This week's Links a la Mode selections represent a slice of just how far and wide our bloggers stretch across the world. We have a trend report from Japan, online law and legislation from the UK, a Finnish brand debut in Hong Kong, and more. From the Olympics to the Jubilee, and 3 interviews with stylists and costumers - this really is a stellar collection of links for the week. Enjoy!
