7 Fashion Bloggers Who Use WordPress

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

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.

  1. 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!

  2. Hello, dear, Thanks for sharing this amazing theme with everyone. I must say, this collection is really amazing and beautiful about fashion theme. I have a fashion blog myself so I always try to find out what else is out there that might work for a better layout

  3. 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.

  4. I’m also interested (and kind of nosy) about wanting to know what other fashion bloggers use as their WordPress themes. I’m kind of surprised and happy to hear that one used the free version fo Twenty Twelve and made it work!

    Thanks for this fabulous post,
    Chanel xoxo
