If anyone has noticed the older posts on this blog, I do intend to keep doing what I had started doing months ago. By that, I mean highlighting under-appreciated designers, blogs, and stores as a way to not only search for the most compelling parts of the fashion industry, but also as a platform for my writing.
I don't consider myself very girly by nature, but my style certainly is. If I could live every day in skirts and dresses, I would (I'd get away with it if wasn't for the damn snow in the Midwest). I have a weakness for anything with pleats, collars, polka dots, lace, or an A-line. As a college student, money is naturally an issue for me so a lot of what I buy is thrifted or on sale. Everything I put on here are things I actually wear, meaning you might never see me in pair of heels and the same 4 or 5 bags and pairs of shoes will most like be re-worn throughout. I don't necessarily think my style is much different than what any other blogger is doing, but I plan on pretending I'm oblivious to that fact and writing this blog anyway.
Side note: I still have yet to master the whole "posing for an outfit photo" thing without looking uncomfortable or awkward, so bear with me.
