Very happy to meet Rumi Neely of FashionToast blog. I discovered Rumi’s blog right after I started STYLE DU MONDE back in 2008. Watching the growth of FashionToast has been a true joy. From her first feature in Korean Vogue Girl, her invitation to major shows as a personal style blogger (which was something new in 2008) to her jewelry collaboration with Dannijo and her campaign for Forever 21. Rumi opened many doors for other bloggers and served as a muse to designers. After all these years and a legion of personal style copycats, she’s still the best!
