Blogger Style Icon: V, of Grit and Glamour

This week I am so excited to showcase the fabulously stylish V, of Grit and Glamour (a hugely successful and informative blog) in the popular Blogger Style Icon series.

V’s style isn’t just glamorous and chic, it is wearable too, which is exactly what makes bloggers so appealing as Style Icons and inspiration for the women who read their blogs.

I asked V:

What influences your style choices?

Magazines, bloggers, celebrities. I’m a very visual person, so the strongest influence probably comes from fashion magazines.

KEEPING IT REAL: V shows us how to look good, even in the snow!

Where do you mainly shop for new pieces for your wardrobe?

That’s a hard question to answer. I’d say 75% of my wardrobe is procured in person. The rest is ordered online. My favorite local stores are BCBG, Nordstrom, Tory Burch (for accessories), Ann Taylor, and Neiman Marcus. Online, I like Shopbop, AllSaints, Topshop, Saks. I’m sure if there were a Zara in my city, it would be at the top of my list. But alas, there is no Zara. Boo.

Who is your style icon?

I have many. Victoria Beckham, Christine Centenera, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton of Sass & Bide, Tom Ford, the list goes on. 

Which blogger is your style icon?

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Karla of Karla’s Closet. She’s got an incredible eye, mixes vintage and modern extremely well, and I love that she is a west coast blogger who is truly unique and marches to the beat of her own drum. There is this ubiquitous over-accessorized, over-layered look that many west coast bloggers are doing; I love that Karla not only isn’t influenced by that, but that she has short hair, and a curvy body. She is the J.Lo equivalent in blogging. She dresses so beautifully for her body, and she is a showstopper, but not in a LOOK AT ME kind of way. Karla’s style is quiet, but unforgettable.


What do you think of V’s style? Which blogger is your style icon? Which blogs to you go to when you need style inspiration?

If you know someone who you think should be included in this series, leave a comment on this post, or send me an email. If you would like to write a guest post for Sugar and Spice about who your blogger style icon is, or any other topic, you can find all of the information you need here.

PS. I have added a little poll in the top of the right hand column, if you have a spare second – please choose your response. Thank you.
