What is your shopping IQ? Mine is abysmal.
A while back, I attended a blogger meet-up. Since then I have been following some of the bloggers I met. I read Budding Fashionista because she’s local and as a glimpse into an alien landscape. I am as likely to go clothes shopping for pleasure as I am to sell everything and move to Paris. But I like to read about people who engage in these unlikely activities.
I have nothing against the fashion industry. Surrounding one’s self with beauty is a noble aim. I’m sure Budding Fashionista spends less on her clothes than I do on horse shows.
Recently, she posted a Denim Guide. She talks about boot fit versus skinny, distressed versus color. She talks about how to style the jeans. She talks about balance. And fun. And color-blocking.
I have two types of jeans. Ones I wear to the around the barn and ones that are suitable for the general public. This is how I tell the difference:
A fashionista I am not, neither budding nor otherwise.
BTW, the site referenced above has a jeans giveway that ends
tomorrow tonight at midnight. Definitely not barn jeans.
Failed attempt at this week’s art photo.
Great colors. Good shapes. The whole is less than a sum of its parts. Reveal on Monday.
Show tomorrow. One-day, there and back again. Perhaps packing tweets later today.
