I was stumped about what I would talk about on my next post after my horrific experience posting on Monday. However I was on Facebook and saw a post stating a fashion blogger just got arrested for being a real life "Joanne the Scammer".I saw it on a gossip site, so I quickly did my research.I don't want to be talking about some lies and being messy.Get ready for the mess,yesssss let's...
It's Aprill,truly the most wonderful time of the years ('cept the pollen).The ground has softened, the birds are singing, my birthday is around the corner (April 15th gifts are being readily accepted lol), and of course people are procreating. Those cold winters really help with that though .
I love fashion! You know what I love even more? A good fashion scam...honestly, truly.If you don't get the reference(google Joanne the Scammer) I am not sure I can be your friend lol.Why pay full price when I don't have to? Continue reading to get the deets on my latest fashion scam.Note: this post only works if you read this in the voice of Joanne the Scammer
This is the last day of the work week for me and I am ecstatic! So ecstatic that I will not be doing much in the office today (praying my supervisor doesn't follow my blog...lol).
Coco Chanel is known as one of the best to ever do it in the fashion world. By 'it' I mean exude confidence, set the trends, all during the turn of the century when women were preferred to be seen rather than heard. I initially planned on just starting this post with one of her famous quotes, however I was swept up in her back story and decided to share with my readers. Born into poverty, Gabrielle Bonhuer ('Coco') Chanel, was given up by her father once her mother passed to be raised in a orphanage.From shop girl, cafe' singer, and mingler with the well-to-do, she received financial backing to open her first shop.Initially selling sportswear 1913, she made luxury her niche. Deviating from the petticoats and corsets of the time, she revolutionized women's wear with such items as the woman's 'suit' and the LBD(little black dress) .Her story really resonated with me for some reason. I think...wait I know it is her humble beginnings that make her that more relatable to a poor woman like me lol. She didn't just take the hand she was dealt by life, she shuffled the deck and made it work to her advantage. "My life didn't please me, so I created my life"--one of her most famous quotes and testament to her life.Her rags to expensive rags and riches life serves as an inspiration to many. Coco Chanel, I salute you!
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
