Introducing Myself

Hi! I'm Kimmie. I love reading fashion blogs (and craft blogs, and cooking blogs, and baby blogs... and I guess any type of blog actually) and have always felt like reading blogs was a one-way conversation, since I wasn't part of the "blogging community." I maintain a baby blog for my son (who is 18 months old and the cutest baby EVAR), but that doesn't count, since frankly, it was meant more for family and friends, and I get weirded out when random people find it. SO, I started this spiffy little blog, not because I'm out for world domination, or gaining a million followers. I just want to put myself out there in case you are interested, so you can find out a little more about me!

I've never considered myself stylish at all, so starting a fashion blog is a bit strange (and my friends IRL would probably find it strange too), so please bear with me. I pride myself on my superb bargain-hunting skills, and just need an outlet to talk about my clothes, since my husband doesn't care about womens fashion... unless it pertains to me going over my allotted clothing budget. Which, by the way, is $600 for the year. I'm down to $31.62 for the rest of the year, and this is AFTER my birthday money and my cash back bonuses from my credit card and Bing (lame-o).

I was introduced to fashion blogging in 2008 by Tiffany, who seriously has the most amazing wardrobe in the world. I've known her since college (we did go to the same high school too, but she was part of the popular clique and could probably care less about some nerdy underclassman) when we were in the same sorority (she's actually my great-grand-sis), and I always felt so awkward and unstylish next to her fabulousness. So with her being my sole glimpse into fashion blogging, I thought for the longest time that fashion bloggers must have the latest fashions, designer shoes, and expensive labels. After awhile, I found bloggers like Kendi, Tania, and Steph, who prove that being fashionable doesn't always mean spending big bucks, and that thrifting isn't as lame as I thought it to be.

I have always been a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but lately, I've been inspired to branch out and try new things. Skinny jeans! Blazers! Tucked-in shirts! Things, that, a year ago, would have never crossed my mind. I used to live in t-shirts, hoodies (I had one in every single color), designer jeans, and flip flops or Chucks. In the beginning of 2010, my new years resolution was to cut out hoodies and flip flops from my work wardrobe, and I've been successful so far.

So there you have it. Hope you can stick around! :)
