In lieu of an ECIG this week, I’m going to throw these links from Independent Fashion Bloggers up, because the bounty of independent works is probably a lot higher in these blogs than would be in the one little post I would have done today.
Also, I’m really busy, and my MOMMY and SISTER are coming to visit me this weekend, and I haven’t seen them in 6+ months! So I’ve got a big week ahead, and an even bigger weekend!

Hello and welcome to Links á la Mode!
This week I’ve noticed a few posts on the theme of body size issues, with 39th & Broadway asking whether the Fashion Industry is to blame for our skinny bitch obsession, The Curvy Fashionista interviewing the brains behind Full Figure Fashion Week and Dramatis Personae introducing us to plus size fashion line B &Lu.
Also in this week’s selection you’ll find some great DIY ideas, a Competition from The Coveted, tips on keeping to your shopping budget from Work Chic and vintage shopping hints from The Style PA and Culturistas.
There’s the full version of Links á la Mode here in the forums… there’s a lot of great posts there too.
