In Lieu of an outfit pic, I wanted to devote this post to congratulating our new president and his beautiful wife!! I am so incredibly excited, and cannot wait to tell my kids that I got to watch history unfold before my very eyes....this is amazing!! I would also like to salute our new First Lady on her sassy, yet classic style. Here are a few of my favorite looks:

I literally just fell into these boots. A friend of mine was telling me that she was going to return some boots that she had gotten at target, she got to talking about them, and I asked what size they were- my size!! At any rate I bought them off her for the price she paid! The best part is that I've been looking for a pair of rain boots (but I'm cheap so haven't found any "good" enough for me) and tada they're mine!

Just having some fun!!
I can't believe I actually found these gems at the thrift store, I mean I've found clothes and such and occasionally look at the shoes, but haven't found any until now! I love the knotted detail at the toe! Oh, I found another pair of heels a lot like these but with a closed toe and a little sleeker, assuming someone donated both pairs.
Oh, and I was trying to explain why my pics may look a little crooked, it's because this is my very high tech setup. That little thing on top of the bucket is actually my tripod, cute isn't it?! It's just not wanting to support the weight of the camera completely, can you blame it, it's so tiny!!

A close up of my necklace (also wearing earrings to match), I really like this necklace, but am never sure of what to wear it with. I feels very summery, so maybe shouldn't wear it until then..
A close up of my boots, I love these things!! Had them for forever.

Alright!! I'm totally stoked to start this blog!! I have been perusing quite a few blogs for several months now and have been saying that I need to start one too! Why, do you ask, well I'll tell you why....
For several reasons:
1. To build up my confidence.....it's not that I'm lacking in confidence, but I want it to translate through my clothing that I know who I am and that I may just rock your world. I want to be able to enter a room and have people think "man that girl must know what she's doing"....at any rate I want to be able to hold my head higher because I know that I look good.
2. To get to know my body better.......by this I don't mean that I don't know the way my body looks, I do, I just want to find out how to better compliment my body through clothing. I have a very womanly body, which I love, I have a large bust and "child birthing hips," very curvy...I don't want to lose my silhouette I want to accentuate my form.
3. To take risks......I want to reach out of my comfort zone a little bit and dabble in different things, I like to keep it fresh and new and leave them guessing "what next?"
So that's why in a nutshell. In addition to these reasons, I am currently working on my masters degree and am a firm believer in dressing for the job I want, not necessarily the job I have, because I'm otherwise a waitress (not the most glamorous wardrobe). I believe that a first impression is a lasting impression, so when I'm not waiting tables I try to look my best. That being said, I will probably not post on the weekend, as I have a tendency to work all day on the weekends, but I should have a fair number of posts a week.
Whew....gosh I swear I'm going to stop talking soon....finally, I was hoping that anyone viewing this blog would offer me some constructive criticism, thoughts, views, opinions, etc... It would be greatly appreciated!!
