Fashion Blogging Is As Expensive As The Clothes The Writers Wear

Ah, the life of a fashion blogger. Front-row seats at shows, pretty gifts, and shiny bright things — sounds like a dream, or, in the words of Miranda Priestly, the job "a million girls would kill for."

Sure, fashion blogging is glamorous, but the cost of being one leaves a dent in the wallet deeper than most walk-in closets. The profession of blogging isn't all glitz and games (though that's certainly part of the fun). There are assistants to pay, hotel rooms to book, and a wardrobe to fill with the season's latest and greatest. According to veteran blogger Bryanboy, most of his earnings go back into his business. "The notion that bloggers are being flown left and right, all expenses paid, by brands during fashion week is simply not true for everyone," he explained to Fashionista before launching into an anecdote of splitting costs with fellow bloggers.
At the end of the day, a blogger who makes $10,000 will only pocket $2,400. The rest of the earnings goes to the government, team members, and living expenses. "I had to buy a new laptop because my trolley case fell on an empty escalator after a long, sleepless flight," Bryanboy continued. But, at the end of the day, these costs are funding their passions, which is the most important thing. Let's hope the doors of Lincoln Center will make those hard-earned dollars worthwhile this season. (Fashionista)
