If your hair is done properly and you’re wearing good shoes you can get away with anything.
-Iris Apfel

Ever since I can remember I have always loved three things, shopping, dogs, and seafood (I'm, a bayou baby).Many things have changed about me through the years, but those things have stayed the same. I can still remember going to my favorite dress shop as a little girl called Monday's child and standing on the platform for my dress fittings(still makes me smile) I remember  I would cry to leave. Some things never change because I still cry to leave my favorite stores, especially when I have to leave without what I can't afford(don't judge me). Those childhood fittings and shopping days still brings back the best memories of my childhood. I know many people say that it's who you are on the inside that counts, but those people have never shopped at Monday's Child. Standing on that platform with my beautiful dress instilled a love for beautiful things in my life, and it also instilled an amazing work ethic because I saw how hard my mom worked to provide me such beautiful things, I learned that if you don’t work, you don’t shop (unless you marry a millionaire or receive an inheritance from a rich family member).

I am a self-professed junkie when it comes to fashion and shopping, but I also don't believe in paying anything a ridiculous amount of money (unless someone else is paying) or full price. If there is something really expensive that I love there are always three options wait for it to go on sale (not wait to steal it), dupe it, or EBay. I don't believe that you should have to break the bank to look and feel beautiful. I love thrift stores (maybe too much) and whenever there is a new trend that I want to incorporate into my style I always head to the thrift store first, I’ve learned in fashion there is nothing new under the sun, and I know at some point in the past someone has worn that trend and given it away, and usually 9 times out of 10 I'm successful.

My style is very classic, glam, minimalist, hobo, boho,(basically however I feel when I wake up). I love black and I love bright colors. Usually whatever makes me feel good works ,and I'm not one to "plan" a look, that never works for me, Most of my favorite looks come together five minutes after I'm supposed to be in the car on my way to where I'm going. My fashion inspiration always usually comes from an random idea in my head, everyday street style fashionistas(I love to style watch)and of course style blogs. I decided to start my own blog because it's something I've always wanted to do, but never had the guts to do it. I really do hope that my blogs inspires you in some way, and that you enjoy it. I also hope that after reading this you have a small sense of who I am. Don't be a stranger, and if you have any comments, suggestions or just a quick hello,please drop a line or two below.
