Welcome to this week's edition of Friend Fridays, sponsored by ModlyChic.
I missed the questions from June 24, so I thought I would take the opportunity to answer them now.
1. Since you began blogging do you notice a change in the types of
things you gravitate towards while shopping?
I definitely buy more dresses and skirts than I used to. I am more willing to try different things and things that I assume won't be flattering on the off-chance that they are. I have rediscovered my long-lost love of thrifting. I have been pulling more pattern and color into my wardrobe. I have also discovered a slew of stores (both online and brick + mortar) that I wouldn't have known about or considered had I not seen their clothing on other bloggers.
2. Do you find, as a fashion blogger, that you dress differently from
your family and friends? Do they comment on that?
Like everyone else, I think I kinda of always dressed differently -- for better or for worse! Nowadays, I am a little more fashion-forward than most of the people I see on a regular basis (but I am only speaking relatively here -- I don't think of myself as being very fashion-forward at all!).
There is a set of ladies who work in my office who comment every day on my outfits -- they think it's awesome that I have a blog (they are some of the only people I know who know I have a blog) and every day they comment on how "cute" I look. I must admit, it's a really nice ego-boost. ;)
3. What's the weirdest fashion that you secretly like, even if you
aren’t bold enough to wear it?
Nothing specific comes to mind. It's not "weird" but for the longest time, I was afraid to try leggings/jeggings because I thought they wouldn't work with my plus-sized body. Now I own 2 pairs of jeggings and leggings are on my must-have shopping list.
4. Looking at current trends – what would you like to try but need to
build up the courage to do?
Again, nothing specific comes to mind.
I did just build up the courage to make yet another drastic change to my hair. If you're my friend on Facebook, then you already know what it is, but if not, you will have to wait a little while for photos.
(Nothing like a juicy teaser to keep people coming back!) ;)
5. Toot someone's horn – what fashion blogger out there inspires you
with her bold fashion choices?
Audi, Christine, Suze, Terra, and Erin, just to name a few!
