This has to be my bagillionth time attempting a blog. I’ve tried the “professional” blog, the “mom” blog, the “military spouse” blog and I have failed at them all. Which reminds me, I need to go shut those ramblings down…
I do know that I have one gift or purpose and that’s dressing people. I love clothes. I love accessorizing. I love things that are beautiful. I wasn’t blessed with a trust fund, or the chance to go to fashion school. With the lack of funds and privilege, I am often asked where I get things or how I came up with that combination and my response is always the same, “I just do.”
I love thrifting and hand-me-downs. I guess it comes from being from a rather large family. I was lucky to be the only girl with no close girl cousins, but that didn’t make me too good to hit up a second hand store from time to time. My best friends mom will always have items for me (if I want them). Her shoes are usually amazing and her purses are always ones I admire. She’ll slip me the nicer items without her daughter knowing from time to time.
I guess this will be a place to check out outfits and how I take looks in all the major magazines and adapt them to a person who can’t go shopping every week or spend $100 on a pair of jeans. You’ll find me painting the bottoms of my heels red before I own a pair of Louboutins!
Keep coming back for my rantings and ravings and I’ll try to keep this as fashion forward as possible, but with a title such as “Justine-Isms” it’s bound to get of topic from time to time.
