I got a very pleasant surprise today.
I logged on to Chictopia to see what my favorite bloggers were wearing and to possibly find some inspiration for my future outfits. A small yellow box in the right hand corner of my screen alerted me that there were some new comments on my posts. Sweet, I thought to myself. People are actually looking at my stuff!
But not just ANYONE was looking at my posts.
The lovely Miss Anna from melodicthriftychic.com commented on my post!
Her blog was one of the first fashion blogs that I've ever followed and she has been one of my inspirations from the get-go. Watching her as a powerful, educated, black woman who broke the mold of conformity with her outfits completely changed my life. I can honestly say that her love of color and patterns fueled my love of fashion.
I'm just... blown away. It is truly something special when your idols notice you.
Maybe this is a sign that I'm on the right track.
