Why all the Fashion posts Michelle?

I've decided to create a challenge for myself.  I'm going to post an outfit/collection/set a day.  Every day that I can as long as I'm not on vacation.

Okay, so it's not really a challenge for me, as much as it is a fun escape at any given point during the day.  You see. . . I was a fashion major.  I started out as a design major.  But, my dad and I had a difference of opinion one morning and he called me to tell me that I was cut off as far as college money was concerned.  We didn't have any bad feelings about it.  We went about our daily business after that and I still loved him dearly.  He did what he felt he needed to do.  And I did what I felt I needed to do.  I dropped out of classes that semester and withdrew from school.  I found a job at a retail store and was made an assistant manager within 6 weeks.  

About a year or year and a half after that, I decided that I was making enough money to go back to school and take some classes.  So, I re-enrolled.  But, taking design classes and working full time was not working out for me.  So, I switched to a basic fashion degree program.  The basic fashion degree pulls classes from both design and from merchandising.  If I knew now what I knew then, I would have completely switched to Fashion Merchandising and done an internship OR stayed with Fashion Design.  But, such is life. 

I told you ALL of that, just to say that I still adore fashion.  But, I don't have money to spend on fashion and truthfully would still wear my jeans and tshirts every day anyway.  I just love putting collections and outfits together.  That was the most fun part of any of the fashion jobs that I've ever had.  

So, I'm "challenging" myself to create a collection, set or outfit a day on Polyvore and post it to my blog.  So, if you start seeing all of these "outfit" posts, that's why! 

You can find all of my creations so far in my Daily Fashion posts label!

Who IS The Quirky Homemaker from HBHL?

I'm that girl who went to college on scholarship, lost that scholarship after the first year, changed majors 5 times, started working full time to pay for college, ended up with a degree in fashion. . . that girl who met a boy on a cruise who she eventually fell in love with and moved 1100 miles away from home and family to be with. . . that girl who believes in Jesus, but married a man who isn't sure what to believe. . .then had kids with him. . .who are a perfect combination of us both. . . Lord, help us all. . . the girl who is still trying to figure life out. . . whose life, like this blog is constantly evolving. . . that girl who cooks for relaxation, is never organized, always had her nose in a book while growing up. . . who is afraid of heights, but married a BASE jumper. . .that girl who grew out her gray hair and is trying to be the fittest of her life in her 40's. . . that girl who would rather do crafts and sew, than fold the laundry or clean the mud off the floor. . . yeah, I'm that girl
