Turned Out: My New Favorite Fashion Blog

Emily’s Team Pick:

Probably the reason why I follow so many street fashion blogs is because I’m unfashionable and wish I was fashionable. Which is why I particularly like Turned Out, a fashion blog that seems to focus on young hipster-y looking people. It’s run by a woman named Maya (and I think her sister Greta?) who lives in New York City but has roots in New Zealand (maybe? I kind of just like to look at the pictures), and all her photographs are of women, which is great because I happen to really like women.

Aside from the stylish part of her blog, I also think she’s a good photographer. Call me a hipster, but I really like the grainy/black and white/film-ish aspects of the pictures.

There isn’t a lot of writing, which I like, because again, I just want to look at pictures. In fact, while I was looking through the site trying to find pictures for this post, I got distracted by all the pretty girls and forgot I was supposed to be writing a thing. Turned Out has been around since 2008, but it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite fashion blogs. It’s kind of like Lookbook, but without all the crappy entries.

Emily Choo started as an intern with Autostraddle when she was 18 years old. She's now 10 years older and lives in Toronto with her partner and cat. The defining moment of her career was when Riese said this about her: " I think Emily Choo is a very bright, 'poetically inclined' girl who pays attention to everything and knows almost everything (the point of stuff, how to read, how beautiful things feel, how scary things feel, etc.) but doesn't believe/accept/realize yet that she knows almost everything." She still doesn't believe she knows anything, so, thank you, Riese, for that.

      • I like your tumblr Inklis!! QUESTION for you guys: Where in the world can I find (cheap) clothes like this? Store/online suggestions? Also vintage-looking shoes would be awesome.

        • @TJane: My clothes are a mish-mash of J.Crew Talls (online, on sale), Madewell (on sale), the Target little boys section (for me, size 14-16: shirts are longer in length, not too big in the bust, and less expensive than the women’s dept), thrifting, and vintage pieces. My poly/cotton colored v-necks are from Urban Outfitters (they do the 2 for 25 deals). I get most of my shoes on Zappos.com and at DSW. Hope this helps a little!

          • YES, thank you!! I’m pretty sure that my bust size will prove no hurdle to wearing little boys’ clothes:)

  1. Now I’m off to scan this website for pictures of hot people in sweaters, so that I can continue to maintain the Tumblr I run which is devoted to pictures of hot people in sweaters. I HAVE SO MANY DIVERSE INTERESTS.
