Happy news everyone! This Monday just got a bit better! With great excitement I present to you........ drum roll, please..... Sarah from Powder Blue with Polka Dots!

But you know what? I find blogs help me heal. There are super cool, fabulous women of all shapes and sizes rocking the hell out of all different sorts of looks. Polka dots! Short shorts! Vintage ridiculousness! Jumpsuits! (Can we talk about jumpsuits? I am both drawn to them and repelled by them. I think I need one. It's a thrifting goal for 2012.) Not only do the women look like real (albeit super awesome) people, they also have real budgets. They thrift! They wear the same thing more than once! AND they have personalities and lives. They post pictures of their pets and the music they like and the dinners they just ate. They post pictures of things that inspire them. Sometimes these pictures are typical "fashion" images of models in gorgeous clothes, but often bloggers are inspired by classic movie stars, rockers from the '70s, Mary Poppins, anything really.
Blogs take fashion and make it fun. Fashion shouldn't be seriously. Fashion
