Kelsi Smith- Dedicated Follower of Fashion
PHOTO LOCATION: Los Angeles, California

My name is Kelsi Smith and I am the Editor and Founder of Dedicated Follower of Fashion and I’m here in sunny and fabulous Downtown Los Angeles. Peeking out of my background there is the Walt Disney Concert Hall, a beautiful landmark in this fabulous city designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry. Now it may seem that I’m just standing in an ordinary parking lot – for the view perhaps? Nope, this ordinary little parking lot will be, in 6 months from now, a Downtown Los Angeles landmark in itself as the new home of Los Angeles Fashion Week thanks to Fashion Los Angeles ( and architect Marmol Radziner. Exciting stuff happening in my amazing city!

As for what I’m wearing (which is what this is all about right?!) the second I slipped this Ann Taylor dress on I felt sexy, to amp up the sex appeal I cinched the waist further with a vintage belt, slipped on my pencil thin stilettos and vamped up with a vintage silk scarf. Ultimate pin-up chic complete with bright lips, thick bangs and winged eyes.


Dress: The universally flattering dress from Ann Taylor.
Belt: Vintage, my absolute favourite belt, gorgeous colour with just the right amount of wear.
Shoes: These Vicini heels are crazy, super thin and super high they ooze sex appeal…and they match my favourite belt perfectly.
Scarf: My Mum gave me this beautiful vintage silk scarf for Christmas a few years ago, it has a gorgeous muted palette of pinks and blues and is covered in illustrations of fashionable ladies of the twenties – it’s a treasured possession.

BLOGGER BIO: Kelsi Smith moved to the US from the UK almost 5 years ago to pursue a career in acting, upon realising she wasn’t the only one with this epic dream she decided to add a few other long shots to her career wish list, including accessories designer, fashion photographer and fashion journalist. Fashion journalism stuck and her site, Dedicated Follower of Fashion, now 18 months old, is a success, opening doors all over the fashion community. Kelsi recently launched Two Point Oh LA, a Los Angeles based organization for fashion, style and beauty bloggers, building and uniting the blogging community in Los Angeles. Additionally, she will be working Fashion Los Angeles furthuring the connection between bloggers and the Los Angeles fashion community at large.
