Inspirations are Inspirations for a Reason...

So, one of my favorite bloggers is Jessica from What I Wore. I like Jessica because she's a normal girl (well, very pretty, but normal other than that). She's not super wealthy and finds amazing ways to style affordable clothes. Plus she's an alum from the school my little brother goes to (and I'm hoping to go there for Grad school...) so that's always a plus.

I started a personal blog a few months ago to document my adventures with lymphoma (I got tired of telling the same stories over and over again) and soon got tired of posting ONLY about the hospital, etc. so I started posting little bits about fashion. I kind of realized that cancer and fashion don't always go together so well, and lots of times my immune system is too low for me to go out with my friends (even though mostly I feel fine). I still dress up a LOT for class or to hang around the house, so I made the executive decision to start a fashion blog. I started reading LOTS of them for inspiration, and kind of got an idea of what I wanted to do.

Anyway, Jessica posted an entry about starting a fashion blog, and I'm so happy to have the advice! I'm hoping to start posting better pictures soon and see where everything goes. But in the meantime, thanks to Jessica (among many, many others) for inspiring me to start posting on my own!


  1. Hello lovely! Thanks so much for commenting on our blog. I'll be checking out your entries from here on out. I love that your learning the piano! I tried when I was little but had a mean teacher so stopped (he told one of my friends that we parted way because of 'musical differences', which I'm actually quite proud of being like 7 years old at the time! Take care, Corinne x

  2. I love What I Wore! Jessica inspired me to start fashion blogging as well. She's fabulous! And thank you so much for the comment!!

  3. I'm excited to see your blog as it blossoms :)
