If this winter managed to get away from me before I got a chance to take outfit photos in the snow, I was going to be very disappointed in myself! It’s not like it would’ve been hard. It seems like we’ve had snow on the ground more often than not this year. It’s very pretty and all, but I am so sick of this winter bullshit. Spring weather now, please and thank you!
This outfit you guys. Perhaps my favorite ever! This is what I wore to the belated Show Me Etsy holiday party and I felt like a pretty, frosted cupcake all night. The gorgeous tutu is one of my favorite things in my wardrobe and (appropriately) I bought it on Etsy! A few months ago, Kate posted an adorable OOTD wearing this fabulously fluffy skirt from Kellie Falconer Design and shared a discount code for the shop. That’s all I needed to hear. I bought one immediately and I really can’t rave about it enough. I’ve worn it multiple times and it’s always a show-stopper. It’s well-constructed, super full and maintains its shape, and I feel so proud to tell people that it’s handmade and not from the mall!
They’ve sneaked past in a few instagrams and in my HHH recap post, but this is the first OOTD featuring my new glasses! I’ve been wanting this pair for years, but I’m always very hesitant to buy glasses without trying them on first. I have a huge head and tend to not look so good in certain frame shapes–they need to be the perfect width for my face. Thankfully I finally took a chance and I LOVE THEM! They’re my perfect dream cat-eyes. :’) I got them using Coastal’s “first pair free” promotion! Haha, my prescription is so strong that they weren’t quite free, but the discount was definitely awesome!
I have a little bloggy business I wanted to talk about with you guys. This week, I signed up for ShopSense, an affiliate linking program. You can read all about it here. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been using Share-a-sale affiliate links for ModCloth for over a year and have enjoyed the experience. I haven’t made much money from it, but as my desire to quit my day job and work for myself full-time increases each day, I’ve been thinking of ways to diversity my income. I love blogging and always try to share where I get my clothes anyway, because as a blog reader, I enjoy checking out what a blogger is wearing and sometimes buying items for myself. I don’t have any moral obligations with bloggers getting a little reimbursement for promoting items they love, especially if they already own them. What’s annoying is when you can tell someone is only wearing or sharing something because she/he’s being paid to or when someone’s blog is nothing but affiliate links–sometimes multiple links for each item!
Anyway, long story short–Nothing is really changing, you’ll just notice more specific links on my OOTD posts and I’m putting a disclaimer at the bottom of each post that includes any affiliate linking. If you don’t feel comfortable with your clicking resulting in possible commissions, avoid the links in those posts! I understand that each reader has their own opinions on this sort of thing and I always want to be as transparent and honest in my blogging as I can. It’s not like I can afford to shill designer duds anyway! Most of what I wear is vintage, thrifted, or from sales racks. :)
