TAG: My Style Pile

One of my favorite Kaboodle girls, jessicachanel, recently blogged her "style pile."  She'd heard about it from, specifically through this link here. The idea is to gather together some of your favorite things, things that inspire you or define your style, and photograph them in a pile.  I just *had* to do this! I'm calling it a "tag," because I think it would be awesome if other bloggers posted style piles of their own, too - it's such a fun project!

There's also a little survey involved - scroll down for that. :)

(w/flash - the dolls look scary!) 



My style: I wear a uniform five days a week, so I really embrace getting to wear what I choose on the other two! I'd say my style is fun and also classic. I tend to go for basics (simple dresses, jeans, sweaters) and add on accessories to make it interesting (belts, scarves, jewelry, bags, cute shoes). I own one pair of tennis shoes, and they are only worn to the gym. I'm a girly girl, somewhat conservative, and definitely quriky.  Just to give you an idea - every member of my immediate family owns at least own puppet. I think this says a lot about us in terms of our quirkiness! haha

I'm inspired by: My mom, of course!  She bought a pair of sparkly purple Converse when I was shopping with her recently.  I love that she always wears what she likes! I'm also inspired by ladies like Gwen Stefani and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen for their unique styles. I'm also one of the girls who LOVED that Emma Watson chopped her hair into a pixie.  I love bold girls! Oh, and I can't forget Barbie - the best dressed girl in the world. ;)

Something most people don't know about me: How about a few things about my younger self? First, I used to write raunchy Backstreet Boys fanfiction in high school that I'd pass around to my close friends, and I almost got busted passing around a nudey pic (screencap!) of Leonardo DiCaprio in middle school! I also wore an orange wig my last day of my junior year, and a hot pink one the last day of senior year. Oh, and I was "Invisigirl" in the Super Squad, my friends' group of imaginary superheroes.  How's that? Ha!

I hope you enjoyed this - I definitely enjoyed doing it! Please post one of your own if you'd like - I'd love to see it!

  1. This is so cute! I really like this idea :)

    P.S. : What lipstick are you wearing on your header/profile picture?

    New follower :)

  2. Hi Nora! I'm wearing MAC Ruby Woo in that pic. I did a post about red lips here: and another here:

    I'm following you now too. :) By the way, MAC Liquidlast really IS the devil's eyeliner! haha My mom hated it so she passed it on to me, and I REALLY hated it!

  3. Hey! Thanks for writing back/following :)

    I just saw your two posts. I've been hearing about Ruby Woo for quite some time, but after seeing your photo I'm sold! Definitely picking it up today.

    P.S. : I'm glad you agree with me on the eyeliner hehe.

  4. Can't help but notice that Beauty and the Beast is stacked on top of Little Mermaid. ...As it should be.

  5. Oh my! I just love the idea. And I love your bag and shoes pictured. <3

  6. Such a fab tag- so going to do this!!! Oh and WHERE did you find Jem and the Holograms- OMG!!!!

  7. Sarah - they released seasons 1 & 2 and part of season 3 a while back, but they stopped making them. :( You can still find them online, I think - and I've seen some bootleggers selling the complete series, too.
