I am proud today to feature my friend Vanessa.
(you can visit her at her blog also)
She is truly amazing, and I always want to be more like her.
She is stylish, a new mommy, talented, and most of all kind.
Her daughter Olive is the sweetest, most chubbalicious baby you'll ever encounter....
1. I tend to love other's fashion and style. Where does yours come from?
My husband. I used to wear really plain, neutral, conservative, blah clothing. And I used to turn up my nose at his recommendations--they were a little too "unsafe" for me. One day he convinced me to buy a pair of heels with the pointy toes. I had hated the look of them initially, but grew to love them over time. Now I can't get enough of the dang things. I found that I was getting A LOT of compliments when I wore the clothes he had selected. So I changed my way of thinking and tried to ask myself, "WWKC," or "What Would Kevin Choose?" But just to be sure, I still have him go shopping with me.
2. You have UH MAY ZING quilting skills. The color's and patterns you pick always seem to be flawless, do you think that skill helps when you are dressing yourself?
I think it is actually the opposite. I think because my eyes have been opened to more bold patterns and colors in my wardrobe, I love taking risks on the color palettes I choose in my quilts. I don't think I have made a pastel baby quilt in a long time.
3. What is your favorite article of clothing? What do you tend to buy the most of?
My favorite article of clothing would have to be my gray skinny jeans. Thank heavens they fit again! (I just had a baby). There always seems to be room for another pair of shoes in my closet. I think I love shoes so much because they can spruce up the plainest outfit. And I especially love sassy pairs of shoes like ones with animal prints or skins.
4. Where is your favorite place to shop?
I am addicted to H&M. And Forever 21. And Victoria's Secret when I can afford it. I have a really cute plaid ruffle top from there that is several years old but I still wear frequently.
5. Do you think being a new mommy has cramped your style? I mean as far as clothing...
I don't think motherhood should be an excuse to cramp your style. In the final month of pregnancy, I ACHED to be able to fit in my clothes again. So I'm not taking that for granted now. And even though I may be home with the baby all day, I still like to look hot for my husband
