2013 I was extremely blessed with opportunities and a fabulous wardrobe. And that didn’t come without sacrifices not just from me, but mostly on the part of my loving boyfriend. It takes a lot of time, money and especially patience to support a fashion blogger and yet he continues to encourage me to pursue this crazy dream of mine. One of the things I love most about him. Really and truly babe, not a day goes by I don’t count my lucky stars for how lucky I am to call you mine. And the icing on the cake is he knows I’m not a diamond kind of gal but rather I prefer to be showered in shoes. I’ll take a pair of sparkly Louboutins over a pretty ring any day! (Think the Big proposal to Carrie in the shoe closet. My dream come true!)
However, this year I have promised him that I want to focus on pursuing his dreams. That dear loyal readers does not mean I’m not pursuing blogging anymore. I’m finally getting the hang of this thing and miraculously comprehending the efficient use of my camera settings, so I’d like to think the best is yet to come! But the main topic of conversation and disposable income this going to be geared toward making my other half happy. And for him that’s cars. Currently he’s working on adding upgrades to his truck. What that means for me is instead of spending the day browsing the racks at my favorite stores is instead learning the difference between a nut and a bolt at a hardware store.
Being the fashionista that I am, I look at every opportunity as an outfit debut. And in the spirit of tools and perhaps slightly inspired by the only exposure to tools I’ve ever experienced in my twenty something years of life, I guess my outfit was somewhat inspired by none other than “Tool Time’s” favorite bearded host, Al Boreland. Chris get’s new parts and I get to wear a new outfit. Everybody wins, and that ladies and gents is called compromise!
Note to self, next time you’re told your going to a hardware store pack a cute coat! It gets cold in those large warehouses in January!
