One of my favorite bloggers, Jessica from Style Obsession, tagged me for the "A Blog with Substance" award yesterday.  Her blog definitely deserves the award, so I'm glad someone gave it to her ;)  Here are the rules:
Here are the award rules:

1. Thank the person who gave it to me.
Thanks Jessica! You rock!! :D :D

2. Sum up my blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience using five words.
Dressing the best for less! (haha...that sounds funny, but it works ;) )

3. Pass it on to 5 other blogs that I feel have real substance.
It is so hard choosing people to pass awards on to! But here we go (two of the people I would have chosen were already picked by Jessica so I don't want to repeat XD):

Flashes of Style - Bonnie has such a great style and I love every single one of her outfits.

page sixxx -  Jamie-Lee is another blogger with awesome style!  She has an awesome wardrobe!

Twitch Vintage - Robyn has such a great eye, every week she adds tons of gorgeous clothes to her online eBay store. Her personal style is wonderful too!

See You In Sweden -  I have only been following her blog for a few weeks but Rebecca has awesome items and always looks very put together and pretty!

Illustrated Moodboard - Another blog I have just started following.  This blog is truly unique, every post is a gorgeous illustration of a fashion blogger, or other fashion item. :)

This is a triple whammy, first Minja, the red zebra and From Skirts to Skillets awarded me with a blog award!  What I have to do is:
1. Post the award on your blog
2. Link the person who has given you the award
3. Pass the award to other 15 blogs you've discovered
4. Let these 15 people know that you've given them an award

My choices in random order: (I tried to pick people I haven't chosen before),
My Fashion Diary, voguesuit , Ultimate Fashion Lover ,mocha-soy-whippy, Sophie, Come Over to the Dark Side We Have Candy, Style is an inspiration of past, present and future, LA's blog, this free bird, fashionchampagne, My Lack of Style , ellevictoire, My Little Fashion Diary, My Republic of Fashion, Kimbox

Next, miss anonymous tagged me in this!  According to her, "the tagger asks 8 questions and the taggee (if that's even a word) answers the 8 and then tags 8 peeps to answer those questions and so the cycle continues." So here we go!

1. What inspired/made/possessed you to start blogging? I had wanted to for a while because I love fashion and wanted to express my views about it and just babble on about my purchases, inspirations and lusts.
2. Who's your style icon at the moment? Umm...a ton of fashion bloggers...or celebrity-wise, Emma Watson and Keira Knightly
3. If you could pick a superpower to have, which would it be and why? Invisibility, because I don't like being the center of attention and it would be fun to see what people say when I'm not around ;)
4. What's your take on double denim? Depends...sometimes I like it other times its ICKY
5. If you could only eat one food item for the rest of eternity, what would it be? Umm...chocolate? XD
6. Clogs. Yay or Nay? Yay!
7. Where do you hope to be in 10 years? Working at Vogue! (will never happen though)
8. Picture this, you have the opportunity to go absolutely ANYWHERE for half a year and for free. Where and why? London because I have always wanted to go, love the accents, the style, looks like a great place to live.
1. What is your favorite fashion magazine? 
2. What is the one trend right now that you HATE? 
3. Harry Potter or Twilight? (you better not say Twilight ;) ) 
4. How would you describe your style? 
5. What is your favorite piece in your closet?
 6. Tell us a weird fact about yourself.
 7. Would you rather be hot or cold?
 8. What is your favorite song right now?
I tag: I'm going to cheat and say anyone who wants to do it :p (I'm lazy after choosing award people)

Finally, My Republic of Fashion gave me this award.
The rules are:
1. Describe where you think you'll be in 10 years: I hope to be working my dream job at a fashion magazine.
2. Pass the fun along to 10 other bloggers. I am way too dead to pick 10 people so I'm going to be bad and not do it...I know, shame on me XD
I was a very bad girl today & bought 2 dresses at TJ Maxx.  I spent $43 on both of them, I got $2 off the green one because some pearls are falling off. (we fixed it) Going to return the green shorts to make up for buying these.
What do you think?! (sorry for the bad pics, stupid camera...& I need to find a new pose) I think both look better in real life, the pictures don't do them justice, haha.
Outfit 1 (not sure how I like it with the jackets):
Black, Purple, White Dress (pattern is better close up) - Max Studio from TJMaxx ($25, retail $98)
Black Jacket - LAUREN Ralph Lauren from TJ Maxx ($40) 
Pink Jacket - Jones New York from Burlington Coat Factory ($40)
Shoes - Candies from Kohl's ($12)
Bag - axcess from Kohl's ($0) (SOO glad I got this last week!)

Outfit 2:
Green Dress (greener than in the pic) - soprano from TJMaxx ($18)
Shoes - Coconuts (can't them to wear for HS graduation 4 years ago)

1. Thank the person that gave this to you :)
2. Copy the award and put it on your blog.
3. List 3 things you love about yourself ♥
4. Post a picture you love (e.g a person you adore etc.)
5. Tag 5 people you wish to pass this award on to :)

Here is my award and the winners! It was hard to choose because I love so many blogs and have a poor memory, so don't be sad if you aren't here. I probably forgot some of my favorites...but I'll remember later and then be mad at myself. XD

My Fashion Diary
Passport Glamour
Camille Over the Rainbow
Sterling Style
The Sentimentalist
A Sequin Dress at Breakfast
and A.Co EST 1984 ;)
