My BFF, Kim, from The Stylish Life
My friend, Erma
But I now would like to add two to that mix. Two ladies, I've been stalking, uh, I mean following for a little while now. In my blog reading adventures, I stumbled upon them and instantly connected with their blogs. But I knew their readership was so vast that they wouldn't recognize a country girl from North Carolina.
God's Favorite Shoes (see picture above), commented on one of my blog posts, I nearly PASSED THE HECK OUT! This woman's shoe game is tight, but I actually admire her style more. She has well-earned the title of "Thrifting Beast" and I love the way she mixes prints, textures and fabrics. If you watched my YouTube video, I don't really take that many risks :). But there are several looks that I plan to duplicate...
So last night I receive notification that someone else commented on my blog. When I saw the name, I said to myself, "Self!" my self said, "huh?" LOL (I'm a little off center like that) "I know this ain't the Juanette I think it is..." So I looked and sure enough, Juanette from Fashion Nette-work commented not once, but 3 times on my blog posts.
If you do not follow either of these blogs, shame on you! If you want style inspiration and ways to mix purchases (designer and thrift), these are the two ladies to follow!
I imagine my girlfriends and I having a standing monthly Saturday thrifting excursion where we hagle and vow to borrow the latest find the other has just purchased. On Sundays, we meet for brunch after church and discuss love, family, friends and fashion (duh!). Then once a year, we have an exotic Girls Get-Away. Next year, it will be the Bahamas. Yeah, I've pretty much plotted this whole thing out....I daydream a lot :)
So now that you've met my crew (some in real life and some in my mind), back to regular programming.
