Your Style Girlfriend

    Introducing: The Style Girlfriend Reader Forum!

    8th April 2013
    Big news today…



    This has been a long time coming, and I’m excited to announce the launch of the Style Girlfriend Forum!

    In the past year, I’ve been overwhelmed (in a very, very good way) by how engaged you guys are here on the site. From comments on posts (not to mention replies to those comments…and replies to those replies to those comments) to the tweets, emails, and Facebook messages I get from you, you guys are one talkative bunch.

    And I love it.

    But as you know, I’m just one girl (well, two, counting Intern Gabi, and who doesn’t?), and I haven’t always been able to get back to you in a timely manner. And it’s not just that.

    Some of your questions simply go above my paygrade – most notably, your questions about how a certain brand fits a certain body type, which set me off on a Google spree, because, well, what do I really know about shirts good for broad shoulders, or pants made for short legs. (if you want to know how certain denim brands fit a skinny girl with a big butt, though, get at me).

    That’s why this seemed like a good time to hand over some power to the people.


    Head to the SG Forum – found in the navigation bar at the top on the right – to open up your question to the crowds.

    Want to know how Dockers’ new chinos fit? Just ask. If you want to find out what girls think of dudes wearing seersucker shorts, throw that out there, too. I’m hoping that my male AND female readers will get involved because both perspectives are important to making this forum a success. On the female side of things, it’s good for you to get more than just me and Intern Gabi’s opinions about what ladies want to see you wearing (though, I mean, obviously, ours should be the loudest voices in your head as you get dressed each morning…kidding! sort of!).

    Please let me know what works for you, what doesn’t, and if you spot any glitches in the system. A huge shout out and thank you to my good friend Mike Janke for building this forum with his bare hands and brute strength. While I’m cobbling together some coding knowledge (not to brag, but I’m pret-t-t-t-y great at line breaks), I could not have gotten this together without his know-how. Note to self: Enroll future children in Ruby on Rails pre-k classes.

    Now, what are you waiting for? Head over to the SG Forum and get to conversatin’!
