Welcome, Wall Street Journal Readers!

December 8th, 2008

Wall Street JournalGreetings, Wall Street Journal readers!  I’m honored to report that Omiru was featured in the WSJ’s Blog Watch.  Here’s what Nikki Waller, an editor at the Wall Street Journal Online, says about us:

"Fashion-school graduate Trisha Okubo started Omiru in 2005 to deliver what she calls "real style for real people."  Omiru’s writers answer readers’ questions — including one recently on what to wear to a creative-industry job interview — with tips and examples of garments and accessories from major retailers, such as Banana Republic, Gap and Forever 21. Keeping with Ms. Okubo’s mission of democratizing style, most pieces spotlighted on the site cost less than $100…Readers weary of unrealistic fashion advice in magazines will welcome tips more focused on their lives — looking work-appropriate is a frequent topic — and budgets."

Welcome to Omiru, where you’ll find inspiration and advice that’s as stylish as it is practical.  Here’s a sampling of our favorite posts to get you started:

    YAAAAY! I first read about this site in Lucky Magazine Best Fashion Blogs and have been a faithful follower ever since! I love what your team does.

    Keep up the great work!

    Thanks for the love, Mimi and Jess! Omiru wouldn’t be what it is today without faithful readers like you :)

    Congrats you guys! To say you deserve the good press is an understatement, and I totally agree with their note that this site is “real style for real people”.

    This is pretty much the only clothing site I visit on a regular basis. Great job!

    Congratulations! It is really difficult to create a smart and popular web portal. And you cope well. Thanks for your great job!

    You’re so sweet, Inna. Thank you!

    Hey Trisha, congrats! I’m also impressed with the post roundup – that was a stroke of brilliance. I’m surprised that other blogs haven’t made such an effort to entice readers when they receive write-ups in major publications.

    Thanks, Raf! Yeah, blog navigation isn’t the best, so I tried to make it a little easier on our new readers.

    Congrats to the whole Omiru team. I really love this site. I made a New Years resolution about a year ago to learn more about style and improve my wardrobe, and lucky me — I stumbled on Omiru.com basically the next day, and I haven’t stopped reading since. Thanks for all your good work, we love it.
