The Fashion Bomb Reader Satisfaction Survey
By Claire

No blog is an island–especially not the Fashion Bomb!
We take a lot of cues from you guys when it comes to content, and love to check in every year to see what works, what doesn’t, what’s the bomb, and what could be better!

Please take a moment to fill out the survey questions below and leave a comment if you have anything else you’d like to add.

Bonus points if you can also divulge what other sites you love to visit, what feature you enjoy most (and least!), and what you would like to see more of.

    I wish we could have selected more than one option for what drives us to visit the site! It was hard to choose just one.

    Anyhoo, other sites I regularly subscribe to and visit daily:
    Necole Bitchie
    Music Fashionland
    Talking With Tami
    The Jasmine Brand
    The YBF
    Straight From the A
    House of Chapple Blog
    The Fashion Fiend

  2. Pari says:

    Most of the other sites I visit are real style blogs — where people show their OOTD. Most of which are former Fashion Bombshells :-)

    I enjoy the What to Wear features the most, and the articles where you show the fashion spreads the least.

  3. Cherie in the D says:

    I love the FBD site, I am inspired by the site daily. The other site I frequent is

    I love love love the what to wear style inspiration piece and would love to see more of it! I love the fashion bomb daily as well.

    Good Job FBD, good job!

  4. mamareese says:

    Claire, honestly….you guys have a life outside this blog and it’s understandable if there is not a new post or update every hour on the hour. I think you guys do a WONDERFUL job and keep it cutting edge.

  5. Jeda says:

    I cosign with mamareese

    You guys are doing a great job! I love the posts, the celebrity styles, the what to wear, the news…its all good.


  6. SomeSay says:

    I love the site but I think it is time for a site redesign a fresher more
    attractive look.

    Looks dated and collage-ish.

  7. Fenise says:

    I love this site I spend a lot of time on it gathering up ideas and thank you guys I dont know any other site doing it like this!! A++

  8. T says:

    I visit Refinery29, whowhatwear, Fashionista, and Elle with the most frequency. I enjoy the Fashion Ispiration pieces and would like to see more industry interviews not only with established industry veterans but with up and coming people in various facets of the fashion industry. Also some street style that isn’t so contrived would be nice.

  9. Nashea says:

    I agree with mamareese as well, you guys do a WONDERFUL job. The only thing I would love to see more of is street style and style inspirations. Not that I don’t love celebrity style but, lets be honest here, there aren’t that many of us that can actually afford our favorite celebs clothing (or willing to spend it all just to get the look), but speaking for myself, I would like to see options for more affordable looks that are similar to those celeb looks I know we all adore. IMO.

  10. mamareese says:

    Ok, @Nashea is right….I love it but more affordable style inspirations would be great. You know for the fashionista on a budget and erthang….Oh and spell check LOL!

  11. Dobe says:

    Truthfully, I think you guys do an amazing job when it comes to posting several times a day, and keeping the material up-to-date and fresh. I agree with mamareese; there is only so much you can do in one day.

    I have noticed that there have been a few posts here and there that seem like they weren’t really necessary (i.e. Rihanna in the most casual wear ever, lol), but other than that I would say most of the content is great.

    Other sites I visit are personal style and beauty blogs, WhoWhatWear, Refinery29. FBD is the first site I check everyday, and several times a day. I enjoy the “Real Style” features (including “Bombshell of the Day”), as well as the “Celebrity Style”. Overall, I commend you and your team, Claire, for doing such an awesome job. I love the growth of this site!

  12. Cherie in the D says:

    Wanted to add that I often wish that was a function that allowed us to go back to the our orginal post to make corrections or add to instead of typing a whole new post and that way I could spell check when i have time to because yall know I am at work working but I have to always check in to see what is going on in the fashion world and FBD keeps me up to date!

  13. Anonymous says:

    I love the site…. I just don’t really like the personal opinions. Like when you say things like “who is black chyna again” I think that’s being sarcastic. And if you aren’t being sarcastic and really don’t know you should have a celebrity fashion blog….

  14. Keesh says:

    I visit FBD everyday… My favorite part is when Claire does “Cool Online Finds”. I enjoy taking inspiration from other blogs where people showcase their every day style. I also would love to see some more features on affordable fashion choices. I will drop some bread on shoes or a bag, but that is not on the regular! The other sites I frequent are,, and

  15. Sade says:

    I really, really miss the beauty posts! I loved the posts on how to achieve a certain celebs make-up look, the make-up tips, and the weekend beauty inspiration posts. It would be awesome if you brought that back, it’s what got me addicted to FBD in the first place! Other than that the site is great! Kudos!

  16. Really Bella says:

    Claire you’re awesome and I really enjoy the staff. Something is wrong with Jihan she might need medication lol. This is by far my favorite site and I just got some other sites to visit by reading these comments. My IT department is gonna kill me. lol

  17. aries says:

    when i see someone on tv, with an outfit and i am wondering about it, sometime the same day or the next, it’s here, the price and where to get it or something like it. i also like when u show a designers’ new line, cause i don’t always look at Vogue, Elle, etc. ur doing a good job. love the site.

  18. Marthe says:

    Fashion Bomb Daily, all I’ve got to say is; continue like you’re doing now, you’re all doing great! I just cannot spend a day without checking this blog! bisous x

  19. Cheri V says:

    I absolutely adore this site. It is by far one of my favourite websites. I also think you guys do an awesome job with having multiple posts per day. My one gripe is that you tend to see the same people on here everyday. I dont think there has been a day (let alone a week) without Rihanna. It can be slightly disappointing to see endless posts on her sometimes very lackluster style. I LOVE that you guys have been giving us more posts on Asian fashion (like Fan BingBing etc) if we could have more in that arena or maybe African fashion (like Nollywood fashionistas) or even South/Central American fashion I personally would greatly appreciate it. I also really miss Danielle’s beauty posts. Sorry for the long post and I think you guys are doing an incredible job.

  20. HowISeeIt says:

    I also visit The YBF, Refinery 29, and Elle. This is my favorite site. I do wish for the poll we could have selected more than one option. I feel as if you all do a really good job of providing a little bit for everyone. One thing I would like to see more of is affordable options. I am a struggling student! I love fashion, but definitely can’t afford the full ticket.

  21. EatStylePlay says:

    I visit more style blogs than anything, I don’t visit too many gossip blogs except Nicole Bitchie, she is the classiest with her news.

  22. Ms.Missy says:

    I love this site…I like that its stricky abt FASHION and not Celebrity Gossip mixed in….and I know you guys cant PLEASE errbody, but I would like to see more of …
    -up coming designers=interviews, or there work, or just a simple shout-out.
    -I love Essence online, random street styles/trends…its nice to see what ppl are actually wearing on the streets/events ….not w/comment though, ppl can go really hard abt somebody shoes are something,lol.

  23. JO says:

    Love the site, really really REALLY would love to have Danielle’s beauty posts back. I think it added another facet to FB and I learned so much. Keep up the good work, it’s so great to see how much the site has blossomed over the years.

  24. I love the site! I visit daily for style inspiration, bombshell of the day and celebrity style. I would love more daily posts, but I know you all have lives outside of FBD :) Keep up the good work!

  25. JT says:

    The site is great. I think you could improve by decreasing the amount of posts on Rihanna and Kim K. It’s enough already. If you would feature more other fashionable ladies it would be refreshing.

  26. lola says:

    I think Claire and her team are doing a fabulous job.

    My only complaint is the array of stars featured on this site. I understand that you have to feature the big stars regularly to satisfy the masses and to attract traffic. However, I wish you would feature an eclectic mix of black celebrities of personalities. I mean people like Oroma Elewa and Shingai Shoniwa are doing very interesting things with fashion but they never get any attention. Instead, we get an onslaught of the regular Rihanna posts every single minute. Diversify a bit is all I’m saying.

  27. Ramona says:

    I really miss the beauty posts! Makeup makes the outfit complete right? Besides that keep up the great work! I can’t get my Beyonce fix as much as I can get it here ;)

  28. AzizMom says:

    Thanks for the survey. I would like for more obvious and apparent buttons to move back or forward to the next post. The YBF does a good job at this. My other go-to sites or blogs include Shop Style, Ideeli, Rue La La, Witches’ Brew Online and several natural hair sites (too many to name). Keep up the good work ladies!

  29. Yeahhh.. hey what happened to the Beauty Posts!? I have zero complaints about this site! Been here everyday since.. I don’t remember. lol! At least ’09.

    If I hAD to say something, I’d say I could do without the fashion news and show reviews. Maybe one or two shows but not every one, every season. Love love love the what to wear posts. And I heart Claire! :)

  30. Brittany says:

    Other sites I visit daily are,,,,,,,,,

  31. Claire says:

    Thanks for the feedback guys, we heart you!! No, really. I’m gonna see if I can crank a Style Inspiration out today. If not, will see about this wknd. xoxo, Claire

  32. Jennifer says:

    • content
    • speed of coverage
    • Style Inspirations
    • look for less

    • grammatical errors
    • site design
    • some of the “celebs” featured
    • lackluster bombshells

    • trend watches: I emailed earlier this year about nude shoes and was redirected to a post from…2009. All the suggestions were gone. It’d be nice to just update them.
    • Inspired Style: instead of doing a million posts on Emily B’s godawful bodycon affliction, why not just do ONE post on her style & some suggested pieces.
    • Blog Watch: some amazing bloggers don’t know that FBD exists. Why not seek them out & profile them?

    As for style blogs, I only keep up with The Glamourai, Atlantic-Pacific & Nu Sophisticate.

  33. Ayana says:

    I love the Cool online find, the street style post, What to wear, Bombshell of Day, Wardrobe inquiry (most times) beauty post, and When when u share different spots to shop, party, or visit.. I think those are my Most favorite. I notice the same celebs are always featured But, I guess there ALL over the place u can’t help it.. You guys ARE awesome, Love the site. Daily reader!!!!! :)

  34. B says:

    MAIL BOMBS…MORE MAIL BOMBS… Or tleat put them up and let the readers comment. I find those to be most informative!!!!

  35. Anonymous says:

    I love that FBD is reliable and DAILY has new articles/posts/fashion to inspire! The feature I enjoy most is “What to Wear/Style Inspiration” (LOVE your selections, Claire!) and the feature that I like the least is the Fashion Celeb Tweets (they are sometimes informative but the photography (cell pics) often doesn’t match up with the quality of this site and if I want to check someone’s tweets, I head to twitter *shrug*). Still overall LOVE Fashionbombdaily though – visit this site the MOST. :)

    The other fashion sites I love to visit daily are:
    * (the British edgy style is inspiring)
    * (Wendy has impeccable style and great photography on her site)
    * (love her style as well)
    would like to see more of.


  36. Anonymous says:

    Ooops I’d like to see more of… style inspirations & maybe diversify a little with different international styles (it was great during the Olympics to see what celebs were wearing while in the UK and how they were inspired…). But overall you guys do an EXCELLENT job!!!

  37. bella says:

    i miss the beauty posts. they were great and i referred back to them a lot.

  38. Debra says:

    I love the tone of the sight. Positive and fun. I would like to see some seasonal posts like the ten must have shoes or outfits. I often see stuff on sale that I would have loved to own if I knew about it before it sold out. Also, the look of the site can be crisper. Cleaner and more sharper images. I like what you’re doing so keep it up. Also, please set up comp links bc I often buy items that I see on your site

  39. Jazz says:

    I love the FBD, I have been reading for a couple of years now. I do wish the styling options could be more a bit more affordable since alot of readers are either college aged or young professionals.

    Also sometimes the celeb style posts can be a bit redundant. For example, there will be Kim K posts back to back to BACK, Emily B posts back to BACK, or Lala posts back to back. I also think featuring more up and coming designers, stylists, or even models would be a good addition. I really like interesting in hearing success stories. More street style would be great too.

    Other than that, this is my go to site for all the fashion news. You guys are doing a great job.

  40. Dom says:

    I love the site as is, I dont think you need any more posts than you already have. I like the idea of thenew twitter section though, and I also liked the posts you did months back in Feb on historical fashion photos. I have noticed that I can no longer access the voting widget from either my pc at work or my mac though since you chnged the site that feeds through.

    keep up the good work!

  41. Anonymous says:

    As well as seeing more plus style featured, I would really like to see more style from celebrities that we don’t hear about on a regular basis.

  42. soon2Bmrs says:

    Love the site, visit daily – Claire, you & the girls are doing an amazing job! Love Jihan’s humor on her posts.

    I miss the beauty posts from Danielle. And more everyday, street style would be nice.

  43. Sky Demeanor says:

    We would love for their to be less pop-up ads. That sometimes gets in the way of the natural flow of the blog.

  44. Rio says:

    I love this site and I come to it a few times a day. I love the “What to wear” posts and often browse through them for inspiration. However, I would like to see those “What to wear” posts organised within some framework, e.g. school, work, by date, to make browsing easier.

    Other (fashion) sites that I visit are: (I’m loving her new layout!)

    Good job fashionbomb team!

  45. Taryn Nicole says:

    For the most part, I love the site. The only thing I will say is that there are so many urban celebrities, you don’t have to go to the same ones every day. Sometimes it’s not even blog worthy but I feel like you guys put them on here just to fill content. I prefer quality over quantity. Some overdone/overused celebs are Lala Anthony and Rihanna. Not everything they wear is incredible. I trust your staff’s opinions and would love to see more celebs who may not be mentioned as much. I bet their style is different from the expected.

  46. Kahalia says:

    We need more Beauty posts. People saying more daily post just put that because nothing else on the list was needed and they just wanted to choose something. You have enough posts daily.

    Can I also say I LOVE the Claire’s life articles? And also Fashion news. I go no where else for fashion news. You told me YSL was changing their logo! lol Not that I buy them, but I need to know that. I love that aspect of all fashion, including the news.

    I check for celeb styles as well as, and some on occasion. But ya’ll, I check EVERYDAY! Love it.

  47. kiki says:

    love the site, what drew me to this site was the fashionbombshell of the day, however some of the people featured here leave me shacking my head and it kind of undermines your credibility as a fashion blogger to feature un fashion worthy bombshells on your site also the tone and personal opinions on the bombshell simply turn me off.

  48. Ms.TB says:

    Love the site…wasn’t an option but I’d like to see the site and it’s fashion features back to a more sophiscated or fashionable look. It seems like a lot of the wardrobe queries/mail bombs are clothes chickenheads would wear.

    Like seriously, over time this site predominantly features the likes of Emily B, nicki minaj, and draya…i guess that’s fashion, but it’s skewing the audience to be a bit cheaper (not affordable, but actually cheap looking), like now it seems maybe the majority of the viewers might shop at wet seal, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  49. Brenda says:

    I look forward to Claire’s Life, What to Wear To/Style Inspiration posts. I also miss Danielle’s beauty posts. Need more affordable style choices
    Other sites I,,,,,,,,

  50. Siyam says:

    My favorite feature is the interviews. I’m still toying with the idea of doing something fashion-related when it comes to my grad school aspirations, and having real-life interviews with people who do what I want to do. I think maybe banning comments on certain celebs and just letting people vote would make it less confrontational on the site. I mean, each time Emily B is featured, somebody clowns about her weight, face, lifestyle etc and it takes away from what she’s wearing ( which I do believe is the main point of featuring her anyway?) BTW, saw your retweet of her comment about us not liking her…DIED laughing. The girl has great self-esteem ^_^

    I also love the fashion news segments! Keep those coming.

    I keep up with you guys and GirlsOffFifth for my fashion info.
