Needless to say, I was pretty floored when I found out my Dark Ballerina was picked as the “Look of the Day” by FabSugar! There was a lot of silent screaming and a lot more of “OMG” messages to my friends. It’s not often that I would think one person’s voice would matter that much to me, but on Friday, August 27, it did. Thank you to the fabulous editor at FabSugar for picking my look! You’ve given me the validation that it’s worth all the sweat and tears (and the uncomfortable part of letting my face be searchable by Google)!
Like so many girly girls out there, I've often identified myself in many ways with the iconic Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Like Holly, I watched my dreams flash in front of me like the sparkling marquise-cut diamond clusters necklace, but never reachable. I was just an average girl like most of my readers out there, trapped in a not-so-creative corporate job and beaten down by an ugly commute. But my hope for something more fantastic kept me alive and motivated; hence, FrillsandRuffles was born! The feature on FabSugar at this early stage in my blog career is probably as good to me as Holly realizing her true love is a poor young writer named Paul instead of the boring millionaire!
So, this post is for all the readers of FrillsandRuffles, thank you for spending a few minutes of your time each day to be with me. Thank you for cheering me on so I can happily continue to pursue my own version of a 195 carat blue sapphire necklace.
