I scored this dress at Kholes a few weeks back. I loved the draping in the front so much that I put aside the fact that the print didn't really speak to me. I love that it is a jersey kind of fabric which makes it super comfy. From day one I have been a fan of the Simply Vera line at Kholes! I love the fact that She did more than a limited capsule collection. Vera committed her brand to making an affordable line. That speaks volumes about her as a person.
It reminds me of what ticks me off about the blog world..
Some bloggers are so busy shoving name brands in our faces that the true art of style is lost. I sometimes question why I got into blogging. At times it feels very vain and self absorbed. Then someone who loves me, pulls me aside and reminds me; through thought provoking questions, why I started blogging.
The questions are:
- What made you start?
- Who do you blog for?
- What is the purpose of your blog?
The answers are:
What made me start..
I started when in 2007 when a friend of mine from London told me all the cool kids there had a blog!
I let it die down for a few years and picked it up again in 2010. I started after being inspired by a co-worker that was an avid fashion blog follower. She loved my personal style and encouraged me to give it a shot. I was frequently called on to dress most of my family and friends for important events. So it was only natural to dub myself a "stylist".
Who do I blog for..
Women of all ages and income levels.
Women who are looking for a different twist on current trends.
What is the purpose of my blog..
The purpose is to help everyday women who come to a creative road block when getting dressed.
To show people how to wear one item multiple ways.
Matthew 6: 33
But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
