Style Scrounge-Up

Disclaimer: What you are about to read/see is a very pathetic attempt to join the elite club
that is the fashion blogging world.
From a Kentucky girl.
With no money.
And no fancy camera.
Sit down, everyone. I know you're excited.

Actually what happened is...............
I was Facebook stalking myself (what? you don't do that?) and started to feel super lame that most of the pictures of me suck so I was determined to find a few diamonds in the rough. Surely I looked twice since 2010 right?
By the way...are the rest of you working for Facebook as models?
You with your gorgeous smiles and sassy hair and fantastic lighting and clear un-filtered photos?
Where's the tutorial on this?
Until one of you shares your secrets...this is what you get.

A quick look at some of my favorite outfits over the past few years.
Hold your horses.

So there. That's my attempt at playing catch up as a fashion blog.
Do I get to join your club now?
Well...once I master the selfie...that no-teeth-showing smile, sparkling off-to-the-side eyes, carefree leg cross, and cutesy head'll want me fashion bloggers. You'll want a piece of this.

In the meantime let's do a little roundup of these photos:
1. Somebody loves black and white
2. Somebody loves their gold bracelet
3. Somebody always poses with one hand on hip (also known as...somebody thinks this makes their arms look skinnier)
4. Somebody loves dresses
5. Somebody (okay, it's me) was either already drinking or on her way to drink in every. single. picture.

And on that note...I'll bid you...CHEERS!
It might be 10:45 am but it's Friday and if Kathie Lee and Hoda have taught me's that drinking in the morning is the best way to start your day.


  1. I love this post! So funny. And I feel like all I own is black, brown, or white clothes. I love love the dress from the wedding!

    1. Thank you mucho! Glad to know I'm not the only drab darlin on the block. At least it makes it easy to coordinate, right?
