This Is The Ultimate Fash Pack
Who's who in the fashion blogosphere? Who's got the best insta-feed? Who's the ultimate style inspo? Are these the Qs you find yourself asking? Then you've come to the right place. In a world where we've got more fashion bloggers than hot dinners, we've rounded up the creme de la creme of the fashpack, so you needn't look any further...
Man Repeller: Leandra Medine
Leandra Medine, started her infamous blog, Man Repeller, back in 2010. She coined the phrase, Man Repeller, as 'someone who wears "sartorially offensive" outfits that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex'. She describes her website as 'a humorous site about serious fashion. A microphone for women by women. A celebration of intellect and sartorialisms.' It began as a style blog and has since evolved into a destination for anything from Tinder dating, to Instagram etiquette, to witty takes on catwalk shows. Her humourous tone, unique style and different perspective on everything and anything make it hard to not love her. We challenge you to make it through the first line of any of Leandra's articles without laughing out loud!
Style Bubble: Susie Lau
Susie Lau, aka, Style Bubble, started her blog in March, 2006.

She has a self-proclaimed 'disturbing weakness for period dramas – especially BBC ones!'
As for the name: 'Susie Bubble wasn’t made up by myself, it was my friend Sarah Hill at primary school that gave it to me. Then the whole class started calling me that – it’s because I always looked like I was in a world of my own, in a BUBBLE! I have not really grown out of this – you will often see me staring into space, fixated at nothing in particular or listening to my iPod oblivious to many things.'
