Oh what a day! We started the morning with puppies. Yep, my Bro-in-law has two new pups that we're
apparently dog sitting. I love puppies, well the idea of puppies. But I have some dog allergies and a hyper sensitive nose to 'dog smell' - so I'm alternatively like yayy puppies! boo itchy watery eyes and sneezy nose! Did I mention there's puppy pee?
Rounding out the afternoon, I got dressed up to have lunch with my MIL and go thrifting. Yes! I know! The ban. But I got one blouse that I had originally found while just window shopping. It's long sleeved so it's winter-wear. My MIL also sprung for enough ties for five more belts. I hadn't planned to make any more unless requested, but who am I to deny donation! I'll have them up on the shop by Sunday.
Speaking of obis I wanted to give this super long belt a spin. It wraps around me twice! After looking back through my archives, I've only worn this dress a handful of times. It's such a statement piece I feel like I need to space out wearing it. I'll probably be wearing it more often because it drew up the last time I washed it making it above knee length/fit better.
Here's some FF questions I snagged from Elegance Personified who kindly gave me a shout-out on her blog today.
Definitely, my style has gone through some major evolutions. Sometimes distorting out of what I even like. However I feel like I'm finally hitting my stride, learning not to care about brands, but using the power of branding as starting point for sizing/style types. My life changes frequently - school, summer, different jobs. These demand different functional outfits so thus my style changes.2. Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from your family and friends? Do they comment on that?
Absolutely and absolutely. I often get criticism for not wearing the same stuff as everyone else. I occasionally get side-eyed or snide remarks, but generally everyone is supportive.3. What’s the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you aren’t bold enough to wear it?
Pretty sure there's nothing I'm too scared to wear. I like a lot of things I don't actually wear, but I dress for physical comfort first, then fashion second, so a lot of trends go by the wayside for that. As for weird things - I wear harnesses, wild shoes, weird prints, ties as belts, and the loudest colors I can find. I'm pretty weird.4. Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to build up the courage to do?
Admittedly, I had to go look up what's "trendy"... I'm pretty sure I own something of everything that could be trendy in someway shape or form. The thing I've learned from blogging - don't be afraid of your clothes. Even if you wind up hating what you're wearing, change! You don't have to keep an outfit, you can simply change out of it and get rid of it!5. Toot someone’s horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you with her bold fashion choices?
Just check my blogroll. I keep it as updated and fresh as I can. I remove non-updating blogs after 3-6 months, re-add if they return, but my blog roll reflects the blogs I read every time they post. I do add anywhere from 10-20 additional blogs a day, so if you're a comment reader - pop over to some of my readers and say hello! Community is a wonderful thing.
