Against the wall

So many bloggers can pull of that fierce/serious face. Mostly I just look annoyed.

I have to admit it, guys, I've been feeling pretty frustrated this week. Jobless, with bills coming due. Trying to work hard on my blog, but feeling like the progress is soooooo slow. And my battle with trying to find good lighting wages on. It's been a bit wearying trying to dress in the morning, cause mostly I just feel like grabbing some jeans and calling it a day. 

There is some good news, though. I've opened up an etsy store! Only a few items are in so far, but I've got more to add, so keep an eye out. And if you like the houndstooth blouse I'm wearing today, you're in luck! It's available for purchase. I bought it with the sole intention of putting it in the store, but I had to wear it at least once, cause it's amazing. Click over to my store if you want to check it out. I've also got accessories and housewares. Yay! I want to go to the store!

  A lot of people cringe at the idea of thrifting, though in the fashion/style blogging world it's pretty common. And a lot of other people like it in theory, but they feel overwhelmed once they get to the store. I, for one, love it. Stick me in Value Village, I'm happy for hours. Maybe it's because the men in my family are hunters, and I got some of that in my blood, but instead of shooting deer or bears, I hunt for style. Clothes, shoes, plates, scarves, whatever, I go after all of it. But I don't have the room or the desire to keep everything I find, not to mention most of the best clothes don't fit me. So this is my chance to share my passion for thrifting with others who love vintage and secondhand, but can't or won't shop for it on their own. I know I won't be able to make a living off of it, at least not for awhile, but it's more about doing something I love and taking steps toward doing what I really want in life. I hope you'll think about supporting me, even if just in encouragement. Thanks!

  1. That blouse is adorable! I can't pull off the fierce face, either. I feel too self-conscious, or maybe it just doesn't go with my woodpile background!

    Good luck with the shop.
