After a year's worth of partnerships with a handful of local brands (Lovers + Friends, GUESS and Current/Elliott, to name a few), Italian fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad is finally taking her Cali crush to the next level. During a recent meet-and-greet at WeHo eatery Cecconi's, the in-demand jetsetter with more than two million Instagram followers revealed to fans that her future plans include finding an LA abode.
"I'm looking for a place now!" 27-year-old Ferragni told Pret-a-Reporter. "I think [Los Angeles is] a beautiful city and the only place where you can work hard but at the same time relax." The recent Steve Madden collaborator and Simpsons subject goes on to explain that she's currently in town taking "commercial classes" and looks forward to "having a beautiful garden, walking the dog, running and, of course, hiking" when she becomes an official Angeleno.
With Ferragni joining our already abundant roster of local blogstars, it's safe to say that LA is officially the fashion blogger capital of the world.
