i’m fashion blogger famous!

21 12 2010

i promised a long long time ago, that i was going to add a budget fashion feature to the ole broke207. well, i lied! totally! i’ve been trying all year to figure out how to get it going, and i just couldn’t figure it out. i would start and stop and reconfigure, but the post just never… posted. well, a few weeks ago, i had an actual revelation! perusing a guest post on the goodwill of northern new england blog, i realized that maybe the fashion post didn’t belong on broke207, and that’s why i was having such a hard time writing it.

well, i decided to nut up and contact goodwill, and see if they were interested in a potential weekly fashion feature. you never know unless you ask, right? well, they received my idea very very kindly (thanks for being awesome michelle!), and my very first post is up today! if they like it, it will be a continuing thing. if they don’t, at least i got a totally sweet outfit for $10.49. it’s a win win!

so anyway, go and check me out, and maybe even leave a little comment love so they let me do it again. and if you’re really lucky, i can talk some of my favorite local fashion bloggers into doing it with me.

that is a good coupon- IF you’re willing to venture out to the mall. maine only has 2.5 malls- all of which are crazy mobbed all xmas shopping season long. i actually had to send the poor boyfriend to sephora on xmas eve to buy a present for my mom. he’s kind of a saint.

ahhh, our Ultas are generally in strip malls, rather than regular malls. a little less crazy.

okay, on topic now. did you ever see the “New Dress A Day” project? it’s over now, but you can read through her archives. she gave herself 1 year and a dollar a day to create a new outfit every day. it’s so fascinating!

i LOVE the new dress a day project. i read about it first on shoestring magazine. although, does she not have a job? i wish i had that kind of free time!

she didn’t have a job when it started. the “about” section explains how it grew out of her job loss and a need to focus on something. she does have a job now and talks about having to sew REALLY early in the morning or late at night.

i’m always too lazy to read the “about” section! although she’s certainly making unemployment look attractive… i wonder what she’s doing now (could google, but again, too lazy)?
