If you didn’t know about tumblr, you might not have a choice soon. Its so easy to use that anybody with anything to share will find it undeniable. I am not going to run down every tumblr account in Richmond; there are literary thousands by now, but here are a few based around the fashionable you should check out.

Dirty Richmond
If you are wondering what people are wearing right now around town, then you need look no further than Dirty Richmond. Almost daily updates on the fashionable (or fashion disasters).

The Blaaahg
A local tumblr that reps Richmond and promotes bikes, skateboards, design, photo, art, beautiful women, classy men.

The girls over there at Rumors have a lock on local fashion chatter and are involved within their community more than almost anyone I know. They’ve been on tumblr for quite a while.

Weave All About It
Just to give you the scope of how specific a blog can be, WeaveAllAboutIt is about finding weaves. Not just the extensions to your hair, but bundles of tangled fur or whatever found on the ground anywhere. This one is a little strange, but if you imagine it – you can blog about it.

Novelty Shoes
Picture of shoes on your feet or as they explain it.
Novelty Shoes started from nothing more than a pair of shoes on some feet. Shoes have their own character and a story to tell, some of which remain untold. Novels tell stories, which are typically defined as a series of events described in a sequence. Novelty refers to something which is striking, original or unusual.

Printed a lot of magazines. Met so many fantastic people in the process. Professional work:
