For me, it started as a way to pursue a passion of mine as well as preserve my sanity!
The idea of this site had been percolating in my brain for a long time. But marriage and starting a family moved it to the back burner. Then, January of 2009, I had twins. And my oldest was only 17 months old! (Yes, finding out we were pregnant with not just kid #2 that we had planned but also #3 was quite a shock!) The exhaustion was unbelievable, they were born in the winter, so we were pretty much quarantined to the house, and I found myself sitting almost all day, what with all the feedings and snugglings.
My computer was on a corner of the dining table and even holding a baby it was easy to click around, which I enjoyed much more than watching TV. My husband suggested I use the time to get my site up and running. I was afraid I was too tired to dedicate any brain power to it, but I was wrong. Researching how and what to do was energizing. Within a few days I had a HUGE list of ideas for blog posts and different sections. Seeing the site come to life helped me forget that I hadn't showered in a few days. And creating the blog posts let me enjoy the fashion world again vicariously. I may have been scrounging it in newborn-friendly clothes, but I could escape into the blog and feel pretty again. It was something fun when I really needed it.
And as for why THIS particular topic for a blog? Because bad fashion happens way too much and when you look better, you feel better! And heaven knows we can all feel better.
It has to do with my first post
A lot to do with quotable style
And also with Whatever Happened to "Sunday Best?"
Even if most days were like this...
I knew I'd feel more like this...
If I incorporated a little more of this!
Style that is!
Items from my pre-mom wardrobe!
The joy of great fashion!
