Cue the DIY Revolution: This Group of NY Girls' New Site Should Have Them Ditching Their Day Jobs in No Time


holy crap! if there's anyone that has ever made me feel like a total slacker for not being able to manage a blog on top of a ten hour a day 9 to 5, a just-put-a-ring-on-my-finger fiancè slash roommate, and a social calendar (with a built in live music schedule) that's completely impossible not to become a total slave to....it's THE ALIOMI CHICKS. not only are these babes running a full-fledged ecommerce site and social media presence, complete with a blog, regular email blasts, photoshoots and video, but it looks like none of them have yet to devote their sunlight hours to the project. day job on top of a massive, totally rad diy sampling of apparel and accessories? beyond impressive.

aliomi chicks, if you're reading this, i give you major, major props. new fan, for sure. xx
