El Gusto es Mio


Top: Target, Undershirt: Shade, Necklace: Kohl's, Skirt: Thrifted, Bracelets: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Payless

I thought I would take this time to say hello to my newest follower: Hello, Laura, and welcome! And thank you to the other 12 of you, and those who don't follow but do read and/or comment. It's a pleasure (or el gusto es mio in of the few phrases I remember from my years of study) to have so many non-models conversing in one place.

I admit that I'm always excited to get more followers, but I also admit even if no one followed this blog I would still keep doing it. Why? Because the purpose of this blog was never to win a popularity contest, it was to explore my wardrobe and find what works for me. And it has done that very well so far. So ya know what, Congratulations Blog! Thank you for helping me transition from Not the Modeling Type to Modeling Anyway! Definitely a big step and I couldn't have done it without you...probably.

Question of the day: does my shirt match? I'm not sure that it does, but it was the best I could find that wasn't a sweater. Someday I need to explore the mixing of patterns, like this, but that day is not today. I wouldn't even know where to begin. Any suggestions?

I love that your not the modleing type! Me either! I have absolutly no idea how to pose. I am going to try to follow your lead and try to be more relaxed and not so serious. Thanks for the inspiration!

I love your blog. Because of your bravery, I might step out and "model anyway" someday. For now, my sis-in-law models for me. HA!

I'm you're newest follower, found you through thriftaholics link-up.

Hope you stop by my blog sometime!
