Been there, done that

I eat, sleep and breathe fashion. And although I don't have the money to jet set across the world to all the fashion shows or buy the latest designer styles, I really do pride myself on being fashion forward and fashion knowledgeable. As the author of a small fashion blog, I get little recognition of my talents, I mean you guys love me, but in the grands scheme of the fashion industry, no one knows my name.

That's why it's so nice to get validation sometimes. Today, my validation came from a Lane Bryant ad in People Style Watch's September issue (pg. 102). As I was flipping through the pages, I saw an ad that was so similar to an outfit post I published over a year ago!! February 23, 2011 to be exact!! I'm not claiming they poached my idea, but it would be nice if they sent me some of their ad budget :D

In all seriousness, it was really cool to see that a professional stylist put together a look for a photo shoot, that I had already thought about way before they did! Such validation for this little ol' fashion blogger!!

Can you see the uncanny resemblance? I'd still love to have that hounds tooth cape though :D

P.S. If you ever seen any of the looks I put together in a magazine or on TV, please let me know, it will make my day!!
