Welcome

This blog is where I share a lot of style inspiration and all the tricks I learned from 17-years of working in retail. Shopping is my comfort zone and style is my art. I am refining my style and curating a more cohesive and cultivated closet. I am buying classic, timeless pieces to wear on repeat. I understand that not everyone wants to invest in a pair of shoes (this is what I tell myself when I put it on my Amex, just go with it). Because of my 984,000 hours working in retail, I have the ability to find most items on sale or a dupe for the newest “it” bag.

 

I also share everything I have learned on my path of figuring out what does and does not work for my life in the form of Real Life stories because if it can happen, it’s happened to me; seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.  Feel free to use my “experiments” on your path to being who you were meant to be (that’s whoever you want to be, btw). Like all us, country folks say, “Don’t try this at home.” {ha}

Now I'm Here, Wherever That Is
My greatest ability in life is to find the humor in any situation. If I didn’t have the ability to laugh at my life, I would be in the corner crying 24/7, 365. When the Universe has thrown adversity in my face I have stood by the advice my mother gave me, “Just spit on it.” Great advice for most  “situations.”
I don’t have all the answers but I do know two things. Life will continue to knock me down and each and every time I will get up, laugh, and tell life that she hits like a b*tch (I  totally stole that from Pinterest). I invite you to follow along and laugh with me as I am self-actualizing and realizing that it’s not as easy as it looks on the TV. These are my stories (cue the Law & Order theme). 
And if you’re having one of those days when you can’t laugh (because we all do) then come on over here and laugh at mine.
