I suppose it's been a long time coming for me to start writing on this thing, but now that I have gotten the GRE out of the way, I can devote more time to sartorial-izing than to studying. So, here goes: I'm JoAnn, sister to Nikki. I live near Atlanta and just recently (well, as of May) got married to my high school (and college) sweetheart. I'm a lover of many things: news, fashion blogs, candy (you bet I'm excited about Halloween coming up), Mad Men, old movies and musicals.
I'm sure there will plenty of time to get to know each other as the months go on.
A little bit of background: I have been inspired to start writing a fashion blog for a while, but had just never found the time in my schedule (it's been a busy couple of years). I've been reading sites like What I Wore, Kansas Couture, The Clothes Horse, This Time Tomorrow, Academichic – and have been constantly amazed and surprised by the creativity of their fashion choices. I like that fashion has in a way become democratized and that there is no longer one single source declaring what's 'in.'
Nik said she wanted to do a sister fashion blog, and I think this wil be a fun adventure for us both. We're both at very different stages --- she in school, me in the professional world --- and while you'll see some differences, I think you could say that our tastes sometimes influence each other.
Either way, hope you enjoy!
Outfit of the day:
Brown sweater: Mossimo, Target
Blue silk sleeveless bow-tie top: Banana Republic, sale
Brown wool skirt: Ralph Lauren, thrifted
Brown wedges (the most comfortable shoes ever): Zigi Soho, Off-Broadway, sale
White trenchcoat: Banana Republic, gift from mommy
Why: My office is business professional, so it's important to look conservative but chic at the same time. It's been getting chillier in Atlanta, but not so chilly that I can still get away with bare legs.
I apologize for the lack of awesome-picture-taking skills that Nikki seems to possess with her camera; taking photos in an apartment with a point and shoot camera sometimes don't garner the best results. Oh well, it'll be a learning process!
