Meet a Friend Monday - Julie

Happy Monday, friends! Today I have a special treat for you and her name is Julie! =) Julie blogs over at OAGJ. Not only is Julie absolutely beautiful, she's also a mom and wife and a teacher with fabulous style! Say hi to Julie! =)

A special thank you to Tiffany for offering to have me guest post for her.
I have to publicly apologize for being late in sending her the post.
More on the craziness that is my life lately on OAGJ this week. <Insert editor's note... You seriously don't have to apologize! I totally understand being crazy busy!>

Anyway, I started OAGJ in January of this year as a way to try to add some creativity into my life. I never really expected it to change how a dressed or approached fashion in general but it did.

The main focus of OAGJ now is on how I remix thrifted finds, vintage pieces, and the rest of my closet. I love a great deal and always shop the sale or clearance rack first before venturing out into the rest of the store. I firmly believe that being fashionable and stylish doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

While I adore designers like Alexander McQueen, Erdem, Versace, and Gucci and would love to be able to afford to purchase their frocks. I definitely don’t have room in my budget to actually do so.
But that doesn’t mean that you cannot be fashionable on a budget.

This is ultimately what OAGJ has become: my way of showing the world that fashion is attainable with a little creativity and risk taking.
The only limiting factor for creativity is self.



Thank you, Julie, for being my guest today and showing my readers what you're all about! Now, go on over to her blog and peruse her posts to see more of her fabulous style! Seriously, I'm always inspired by her creativity, so check her out!
