Blogger Sketch Sunday [Brooklyn Blonde]

Hello bloggers! Its the Thirty-eighth edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday! This week's edition features Helena of Brooklyn Blonde, whose blog as you can guess from its name, is located in Brooklyn, New York. 

3 Reasons I love this blog:

-Helena's style is urban edgy chic. Her wardrobe is the combination of downtown attitude meets rockstar glam meets flawless fashionista. She pairs fearless black leather leggings with a classic trench. A motorcycle jacket with a light sundress. And a rough cargo jacket with soft pastel-colored skinnies. This girl knows how to mix and match trends and still maintain the perfect balance.
-This blogger's style staples are her endless collection of sleek blazers, her Balenciaga moto-handbags in a range of colors, and those gorgeous nude pointed-toe Christian Louboutins. Everyone has their go-to fashion fixes and Helena's make for a chic combination. I hope to have a set of dependable staples of my own in my closet someday. Currently I'm stuck with over ten leather jackets and more random jewelry than a street vendor.
-While she does have her staples, Helena doesn't stick to one trend alone. I like bloggers who know how to vary their look up from time to time. She will go pretty in pastels on day, all nautical the next, and back to glam rocker the day after. Her wardrobe has those power punch pieces like her bold fur vest, bright neon pink or yellow blazers, and a pair of gorgeous red leather gloves. Its all about the simple single pieces that bring her wardrobe to the next level.

If you've never come across her blog, you need to go check it out. I've placed the link where I first named her blog above.

Blogger Sketch Sunday [Thrill of the Heel]

Hello there, its the Thirty-seventh edition of Blogger Sketch Sunday! This post features Andreea of Thrill of the Heel whose blog is located in Romania.

3 Reasons I love this blog:

-Andreea has a very unique sense of style. I've never seen another blogger with quite the same look. If I had to describe it, I'd say its a bit of quirky lady-like charm meets vintage flair. She's got a closet full of  off-kilter hats, proper skirts, menswear blazers, and perfectly polished heels.
-Is it just me, or does Andreea resemble the actress Ginnifer Goodwin to you? Think Big Love and He's Just Not That Into You. I'm pretty sure its the face shape and pretty red-ish auburn hair that look similar.
-All of the colors in Andreea's wardrobe seem to be deep beautiful jewel tones or bold graphic shades. There are rich purples, greens, and teals, but then she also has many graphic red, black, and white pieces.

If you've never come across her blog, you need to go check it out! I've placed the link to it where I first named her blog above.

I must apologize again for the long blogging hiatus. I've been caught up in moving back home to America after studying in Germany for 4 months. But now I'm home and settled in. And its summer. Which means my blogging will be back and in full steam. Looking forward to many new posts and a summer of blogging!

Some Time Ago

So these pictures are from almost two years ago when I first started my blog. These are outfit outtakes so old I completely forgot about them. Do you ever get that feeling when you look back at a photo of yourself, that you have absolutely no idea who that person is anymore? My high school art teacher used to always tell us that so many things could happen in a calendar year and even though I thought I completely understood what he meant then, I now see that 4 years ago I had absolutely no idea.

A lot of bloggers do their year recap posts in January when the new year actually starts. And they chart their blog's success and the amount of publicity and notorality they have received since first starting their blog. Well I am a simple average person, so the changes in my life in the past year have nothing to do with my blog. I am not a very open person so this is probably one of the most personal posts you will ever see from me. While I can't express details, I'm sure all of you can relate.

Its just that you get to a time in your life when you look back and wonder, what were you really doing this entire time? Why were trivial things so important to you then? Why did you put yourself through things that weren't necessary? And why did earlier times seem so much more simple than the present? I look back and remember when I was so much happier and I didn't even realize it. I've come to a point where I know I'm not the girl in these pictures anymore, but I don't know who I am now either.
