This is my first entry for my fashion blog. I live in Texas. Well, Dallas to be more exact. I also visit Austin a lot because I consider that home. I decided to do my OWN fashion blog b/c I feel as though fashion is not well represented in Texas. I mean I live in Dallas. Where Neiman Marcus was born! One of the most elite high fashion department stores in the world! Believe me, Texas knows a thing or two about fashion.
I may not have been born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could
I do consider myself an Austinite. Therefore, I will have a quirky since when it comes to fashion. Since I was little I was always mixing it up. I NEVER wanted to be like everyone else. I experimented with color, I also wore miss matched socks, I was cutting up my mom old levis before it even became cool. I was being me. A leader not a follower.
When I do these fashion tid bits, these are things I PERSONALLY LIKE. I don’t keep up with “trends” per se, I do my own thing. I say this because you may like my opinions, you may not. But you will like that I will keep an open mind to all things… well, most of the time… I’m not really feeling the knee high boots things. I mean I am, but I’m not going to be wearing them.
I consider myself a “Baller on a Budget”
I buy a LOT of clothes, but I FIRMLY believe in buying on sale and out of season. When you buy things out of season you should buy traditional clothes and colors that will NEVER go out of style. For example, a scarf. I was once in Agaci and I bought four or five scarves because they were
one sale for $1 each in the middle of July. I purchased the scarves in white, black, neutral, and one with rhinestones on it for flare. This is just a small example of buying out of seson
I am also a self professed Shoe Whore
I LOVE SHOES! And the word LOVE is an understatement. My good friend and soror sister Danielle said it best to me the other day about some black and red Jordans she wanted. “I saw these shoes and they spoke to my heart and soul.” This is how I feel about shoes. Ironically though, if you saw me in the streets you wld always see me in my same old raggedy patch work Rocket Dog shoes. I love those things. I bought two different pairs for $7 each in Austin a couple of years back. Believe me when I tell you, those shoes where an investment!

I feel as though weight is a VERY important battle in our American society. So I’m also gng to be doing a blog on my loss. Actually, I’m nowhere near fat or over weight. In fact I’m 5’7 and weigh 135lbs. However, I do want to get down to 125lbs-122lbs so I’m gng to be running and doing all sorts of cool stuff to get down to that size. I will be doing weekly updates on this site as well. Every Sunday I will put up a post.
I will try and post as often as I can. I hope you love this site! Email me or leave comments with suggestions!
