I'm just finally recovering from my long weekend, which has enabled me to share with you all that today is officially my HUNDREDTH POST! Crazy, right? I started this blog last fall, sort of fell away from it, then buckled down and really started regularly posting in January.
When I started, I pretty much had no particular goal. I had gotten obsessed with several bloggers (as you can see by my ever expanding blog roll) through weardrobe, and then one day decided I wanted to give blogging a shot. My degree is in journalism so I figured it would be a good writing exercise for me, if nothing else, and I'd potentially get feedback from others about my style.
Having completed 100 posts, I think I may be in love with this blogging business. I'm obviously not in this for fortune or fame, but I feel like blogging has helped me grow fashion-wise as well as socially. In my real day-to-day life, I'm generally wary of strangers (ok, perhaps the correct term is terrified) and it takes a while for someone to draw me out to the point where I'm comfortable speaking my mind. But connecting with strangers through this blog has definitely translated into me being more outgoing in the real world. What about you guys? Has blogging changed your personality for the better?
Anyway, that's enough introspection for today. In an effort to thank you few but faithful readers of my blog, I am having my first giveaway and literally offering you the clothes of my back! I am giving away an item from my closet: this lovely vintage shift dress with button detailing.
I've worn it twice, but it is still in excellent condition. I've been wanting to do some sort of giveaway for a while, but couldn't really decide what would really be nice enough. I love this dress, but it is a little bit shorter than I would like, so I'm hoping one of you will be able to give it a new home. I have yet to measure the dimensions of it, but I'm typically a true size 6 and it fits me perfectly, hitting just above the knee.
To enter the giveaway, simply follow my blog and then leave a comment letting me know where I can contact you if you win (sorry to any international readers, but this is only for U.S. residents). If you're already a follower, still leave a comment so I remember to include you. I will select a winner at random and announce it on Thursday, June 10. And remember, the odds are in your favor so make sure to leave a comment. Here's to a hundred more posts!
