I’ve put together a list of 7 fashion bloggers who use WordPress with details about their theme, host and plugins they use.

I’m a big fan of fashion bloggers. A Sunday morning in bed with my iPad browsing fashion blogs and doing a bit of online shopping is the best thing. Well, today, I got inspiration to round up some of my favourites and show you a little “behind the scenes” with how they are using WordPress to run their beautiful fashion blogs.

Note that all the sites listed are using a self hosted WordPress site (not WordPress.com)

 

1. Happily Grey

Happily Grey WordPress Fashion Blog

Mary is using the Simple Mag WordPress theme for her Fashion Blog and hosts with Linode. For WordPress plugins, this is simple, only: Pinterest Pin it Button for images and the JetPack’s Subscription Module

On the sidebar, collage pages and shop page there are widgets from Reward Style (including LiketoKnow.it) where she will earn some affiliate income if they result in a purchase.

  5. Hi Mel, great roundup! I had a question, this may be silly but, how do you add the widget code for RewardSTyle? I’m a part of the affiliate (newbie) and can get to the code, to copy, but then cna’t figure out where to paste.. do I need a rewardstyle plug in first.. and then I can paste the code? I tried pasting the code into a post I did yesterday but that didn’t work, it just showed the code! Any insight would be great!

  14. Without no doubt WordPress is the best choice for any blogger, independent of the niche/theme.
    It will be also nice to hear something about monetization and income of their blogs.
