A Bit of Housekeeping and My Debut as a Fashion Blogger

First of all, I would just like to inform everyone that now that I have discovered how to schedule posts, they won't always be posted on the day that you are reading them.  I will be writing things as they pertain to me now.  For example, if I say yesterday, I mean the day before I wrote the post, not necessarily the day before you read it. Okay? Good.  And another thing, I decided I don't like page breaks.  They just make my home page look like a massive wall of text.  Now onto the second order of business.

I do not plan to become solely a fashion blogger.  In fact, I emphatically refuse to become solely a fashion blogger.  I have way to many thoughts in my head to do that, and if I don't share them, my head will likely implode.  Nobody wants that to happen.  Besides that, my abilities to be a fashion blogger are severly limited, since my camera totally sucks and I don't have a tripod.  I took a ton of photos at different angles in a mirror, but I like the headless "look at my outfit and not my wonky facial expression" one best.  Also, the flash on my camera didn't like the mirror, so I turned on literally every single light in the apartment for these photos.  I also had to unplug my desk lamp and place it at my feet in the living room/dining room/entryway (those are all the same thing) in order to not be all poorly lit.  So headless outfit shots will become a common feature on my blog now.  Without further ado, here is what I wore today.  I included one photo with my head and my wonky expression, just so you could see my hat and jacket.

The hat was a Christmas gift from my grandma last year.  I got the coat from Goodwill last year for $8.  The brand is Tulle.  I have a different coat, also from Goodwill, that is the same brand and I love them both.  The sweater was my Aunt Katy's.  She died of cancer a few years ago and when I wear it, I feel like she's giving me a hug.  I love it, but G calls it my "grandma sweater".  I haven't told him why I like it so much.  I just try to wear it when I won't be around him.  The belt is from Goodwill. It cost $5 and I wore it to death.  It's torn and I'm still wearing it until I buy another.  I got these jeans at Sears for $10 on sale.  They are my favorites and I wear them constantly, since I only have two pairs of jeans that fit.  These are the brown boots I bought from Goodwill last month for $7.  I have already worn them enough to get my money's worth.  I need to make sure I wear socks with them though, because today I didn't and they rubbed my heels fairly raw.  I wear them instead of rain boots, because they're waterproof and I don't own rainboots.  I found a similar pair online for $400.  I love Goodwill.  So this is my debut into fashion blogging, which will be a semi-regular thing from now on.
