For those that missed the #TheBlondeSaladGoesToHarvard hashtag, it really happened: fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni and The Blonde Salad crew were selected to participate in a Harvard Business case study. WWD reports that this is the first time Harvard has studied a blogger, and Ferragni openly admitted that she considered it her highest achievement so far. The case study unfolded over months of interviews and analysis into all aspects of Ferragni's business, which is projected to reach $9 million in revenue this year.

The entire study is now available on the Harvard Business Review website for $14 and Ferragni gave her readers a link to buy along with a heavy dose of gratitude this morning. "Thank you for making this happen guys," Ferragni writes. "It's probably the achievement I'm most proud of (sharing a happiness tear right now)."
