I started this blog a few months ago (well, November) and after several posts realized I was veering off in a direction that wasn’t really me. My point, my passion is to demonstrating that anyone can look good on almost any budget. We don’t have to have a six figure wardrobe budget to rock a look. We don’t have to have fashion designers on speed dial when we need to dress for a special occasion. I shop everywhere – Nordstrom, Macy’s, Target, downtown boutiques, resale shops, garage sales…Goodwill. And I think I do a pretty good job of putting my finds together and I love the way I look when I walk out the door every day.
But how do I demonstrate my point/passion in this little blog? I put this question to my web designer, Hollie, and she suggested taking photos of my outfits every day, posting them and discussing why I wore what I wore and where I bought them. Brilliant!
So, here goes my re-launch of The New Black. I’ll post photos, tell you where I found what I’m wearing and why I’m wearing it. I’ll also post links to helpful articles and tips. Constructive feedback is welcome and appreciated.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I know I’ll enjoy writing it.
