While you're spring cleaning, you should also be thinking about tidying up all your online spaces, too. Let's be serious--you're about to declare RSS bankruptcy because you can't stand seeing that you have 1,000+ Unreads on your Google Reader. It's time to re-evaluate and edit down to only the sites whose content you consistently need and, most importantly, want to read. After you've re-added Refinery29 ;-), make sure to borrow inspiration from our ultimate blogroll. Got a site or blog we didn't include? We want to know--just tell us in the comments!


Columnists

Cintra Wilson, Critical Shopper--Cintra's biting store reviews change the way we think about some of our favorite (and not-so-favorite) shops. We miss her already.

Cathy Horyn, On The Runway--We love Horyn's no-bullshit collection reviews and her ability to put what's on the runways into real context.

Hilary Alexander--Between her interviews, show reviews, and on-point trend reports, Hilary's Fashion Week coverage is one we obsessively follow.
