This week the fierce Piper of Cheap & Chic in Chicago is featured.
I recently fell in love with Pipers blog well number one, we are sort of hair twins! :)) Two, for her use of color . And lastly for her fierce shoe game. I loved a pair of Vera Wang Pumps she wore on her blog so much that I went and ordered them!
Check her out!
What prompted you to start your blog?
I was out shopping with a friend, who's a mother on a budget and doesn't spend a lot on herself - her kids come first. I thought it would be nice to show her (and others, as well) that you don't need to spend a lot to look good, and how to go about it. When I first started my blog, I wanted to find budget makeup products that were similar to department store products. I'm still doing that, just not as intensely as I was previously. I was actively seeking out products, even if I didn't need them. Now I'm just looking for replacements as I run out.
After a couple weeks, I finally got the courage to post pictures of myself. The bulk of my blog now is my daily style, which showcases style (at least I think so ;)) on the cheap.
What are your fashion must haves?
Shoes!!! I love having a variety of shoes - I don't like to wear the same pair twice in one week. Shoes can really make or break an outfit. Other must haves - a wide stretch belt, a good bra (foundation is important), a pencil skirt, statement necklace and a pair of nice-fitting, figure flattering (& comfortable) jeans.
How would you describe your style?
Colorful, eclectic, vintage-inspired.
What's the one thing you enjoy most about being a blogger?
The blogging community! There's so much support and positive feedback from other bloggers.
Be sure to check out Piper's blog, I hope you appreciate her style as much as I do.
Happy Friday! Thanks for reading!
