Shameless Self-Promotion

I participated in High Fashion Girl's style challenge. The winner gets a cool vintage bag, courtesy of Grace herself. Without further ado, here's the bottom line: Vote for me! While I still have an ounce of humility in me, I have to say that all the contestants have created great outfits. I especially love Irina's idea of pinning different flower pins on the dress to emulate a very, very expensive dress.

The style challenge was a great exercise. For those of you who like to follow celeb looks, it's a great way to get a feel for how to pull together "the look" on a low budget. If you're too lazy to indulge in that fun yourself, Frugal Fashionista does that for you on a regular basis. I've been a style advisor of sorts for my roommate on her "I've got nothing to wear" days, but this style challenge is very different from anything I've done before. While I can see what I have to work with in my roommate's closet, I'm flying blind when I do the online challenge. I had to spend a lot of time pulling items from the Ether of Cyberspace, which is vast indeed. Now I can see why stylists get paid so much money...it's not easy to do.

Missed this challenge but want to join the fun? Budget Diva does it weekly.

Hi. Just stumbled across your blog and really like it! Keep up the good work!

BTW, I'd love to hear about the west coast Barney's warehouse sale (just assuming you'd go). The one in NYC starts tomorrow.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

Actually, I didn't plan on going to the Barney's sale. I've heard that it's crazy and chaotic, which scared me off. I'm also low on funds, so walking into a roomful of tempting deals is not a good idea. Maybe I'll go to the next one to see for myself =)
