One of these categories I call "Style Profile".
Everyone has his/her own taste, which is awesome! I love seeing how other people call attention to themselves. It's quite telling. I also LOVE to people watch. But, I don't often let my opinions on other people's style (or lack thereof) leave my head, though according to my siblings and closest friends, that doesn't matter, because everything I think is apparently written all over my face. Though, I thoroughly enjoy people who do.
This category will be solely devoted to profiling the likes and dislikes within the realm of individual style.
Be forewarned, it may get ugly.
Today, my style profile is from Jackie, my great friend, awesome co-worker and photographer extraordinaire (who refuses to be photographed herself). This was her take on the stylings of Kat Von D...
"That girl is a giant doodle pad, and she talks like a man".
Oh, I love that Jackie.

Not to brag or anything, but sometimes I buy things that are RIDICULOUSLY cheap (and sometimes not). But, I am only going to brag about the great finds I incorporated in my outfits, not so much the other more expensive treasures.
Monday - Skirt from Macy's - Around $18.
Tuesday - Plaid shirt from Nordstroms Rack - Around $14
Wednesday - Dress from the Loft - $10!
Thursday (and Friday) - Sandals - I LOVE LOVE these sandals from Target - $5!
Friday - Skirt from Anthropologie - $20

Hair thingy and necklac - Anthro (circa 2009)
T-shirt - French Connection (6 months old)
Belt - J Crew (3 months old)
Jeans - People's Liberation (2008ish - woot woot!)
Shoes - seychelles (2 months old)
Side note #1: I originally just took a photo of the clothes on the floor because I refuse to take a photo of myself. However, Jackie said she'd take photos of me each day. So, some days I will post photos. Some days I will just take pictures of the clothes on the floor. And, hopefully, some days I will actually be doing something and then I will just post those.
Side note #2: On my way out of the office today my co-worker Chris said "try not to buy anything on the way home."
Side note #3: My other co-worker told me that if I could pull off this one year challenge I would at have enough extra money to at least buy my own ant farm. Please bless! I would be so excited.

Not that I intentionally called myself a clothes whore, clearly, I just got confused with the colloquialism. But, if I am being totally honest, clothes whore IS probably more accurate.
You see, a clotheshorse by definition is someone who is excessively concerned with dress. This depiction of myself would not be completely accurate... probably not even close, given my desire to hang out in my pajamas or running clothes and often wearing whatever is on my floor, without even an afterthought of accessorizing (or sometimes even matching).
But, a clothes whore... well, I can only assume that would be one whose clothes are worn far more by others than by myself. This would be VERY accurate, actually. I have clothes all over the globe. People are always wearing my clothes. I chalk it up to sharing my talents. Since, I SO love to shop. The wearing of the clothes is less appealing then the actually buying of them.
However, every single time I go through my closets in an effort to downsize (a.k.a. keep the closet rods from breaking in two), I determine that I actually like most of my clothes. I already paid for them, so why don't I just keep them.
Well, it's high time I actually start wearing them. And, so for this clothes whore, I am embarking on a new challenge - I am going to wear the clothes, shoes and accessories that I already own, only buying something new occasionally to whet my fashion palette.
Wish me luck!
