One of the BEST things about blogging is meeting all the creative type peeps in these last 18 months. Some from the design world, most from the fashion world, and every once in a while a style blog pops up on my radar that I instantly HAVE to bookmark and put on blast for the world to know! Meet Ms. Rachel Hall, founder of Studio Swag, currently from NOLA (New Orleans my birthplace HOLLA!), a designer/architect/fashion junkie...basically a gal after my own heart. Rachel's blog features everything from runway looks, to burgeoning designers, art/design/architecture vignettes seen through her eyes, and most importantly, her daily looks! Duh! Seriously, if she done did away with A-Z and all we saw was that GORGEOUS visage, I'd still be a loyal follower. Throw in some notable NOLA food porn and watch that traffic meter shoot through the roof!
Rachel recently hosted this awesome giveaway from the peeps at Shabby Apple and guess who won?? Yup, yours truly! After all the hip hip hooraying and the hootin'-and-a-hollerin', I received the dress (pic below) only to discover I couldn't fit into the bodice....ARGghhHH!! XS every else except the boobies...does anyone else have that problem? (Anyone other than Bolsa chicks? hahhaa)
Moral of the story? It's November y'all! The time for SCREAMING thanks as opposed to daily gratitude given throughout the other 11 months of the year. Just wanted to send a quick shout out to Shabby Apple for stocking some amazing vintage-inspired inventory reminiscent of those Mad Men days gone by (I LOVE this and this, make sure to check out these for stocking stuffers come Xmas, the packaging is too too cute!!), and I also wanted to send a huge THANKS to Rachel, my designer blogger buddy for keepin' design alive and good vibes aplenty. Kisses Rach!! You da bomb.com girrrrrrl and now my readers will know it too!!! Visit Studio Swag HERE!
Happy first day of November y'all! Attitude of gratitude in full effect!
How have you given thanks today?
