"YOU CAN NEVER BE OVER-DRESSED OR OVER-EDUCATED"- OSCAR WILDE
HEY EVERYONE! My name is Courtney and welcome to my fashion blog!
I created this blog on May 1st, 2012 and have fallen in love
with experimenting with different styles and taking fashion risks. Located in
Houston, TX/originally from Beaumont, TX (Yay for southern girls lol), I get
inspired everyday by street style, style blogs, magazines, photography, vintage shops,
and anything else fashion related. My main goal in creating this blog is to show
that you don't have to "break the bank" to look super chic. I love pairing designer, high-end pieces with more affordable ones for an unexpected but still put together look.
FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
*HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
The thing that is so great about fashion/style is that it does not have to be
defined by one word or be grouped into a specific category. My style is always
changing and developing and I've definitely become more bold with my fashion
choices while also taking risks. One day I might feel like being super preppy while
the next day I might want to wear an outfit that is more urban chic or bohemian.
However, if I had to narrow my style down to just three words it would definitely
be: bold, feminine, and chic.
*WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ITEM IN YOUR CLOSET?
For shoes I would have to say my black Tory Burch wedges because they are
so chic and classic looking and literally go with everything. For purses it would
be my Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 that I purchased when I was 18 with my
first set of paychecks. It reminds me everyday that if you want something bad
enough and work hard for it, you can eventually get it. For clothing it would be a
gorgeous faux fur leopard coat that i purchased from Forever 21 a year ago on sale
for only $30 (such a steal)!
*DO YOU HAVE A GUILTY FASHION PLEASURE?
I absolutely love thrifting and started back in 2011. I can not tell you how many times I
have walked through upscale stores like Nordstrom or Neiman's and gotten
countless compliments on a silk blouse I secretly thrifted for only $2.
*WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO, NO FAIL FASHION OUTFIT?
I believe that you can never go wrong with a structured blazer, dark wash skinny
jeans, a chic top, pointed toe pumps, and statement jewelry: Instant glam outfit!
*WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY OBSESSED WITH?
I tend to gravitate toward items that are classic and will not go "out of style" like
black blazers, all things leopard print, faux fur, and pointed toe pumps.
