I hope you have enjoyed Blogger Inspired Fashion Week as much as I have. Today’s Feature in this series is Prissy of RushOur Fashion. OK, now when I tell you I LIVE for Prissy’s style, I really do. This girl is so fly to me. And not only that her clothes fit so impeccably that they look Tailor Made!! When I discovered her blog, I was HOOKED instantly! The way that she puts looks together is just fabulous. Each outfit has that special something that sets it apart from how anybody else would rock the same items. I actually started to challenge myself not to be so “Matchy Matchy” after I started following Prissy’s Blog.
In addition to Prissy having great style, she is a great cook. The recipes that she shares on her blog will make you drool, LOL!!! I have put several of them on my To-Do List to try. Prissy has recently started adding videos to her blogs as well. They include everything from Thrifting Hauls to Hair Styling Tutorials. This Hair Tutorial is my favorite. She makes it look so easy.
Interacting with Prissy on Twitter is so fun. She is a SHOE FANNATIC so she is constantly posting pictures of shoes and shoe sales making me want to swipe my card each and every time. Plus, she is an Ebay shopping WHIZ! I joked with her saying that I need to give her some money to go Ebay shopping for me. She finds the BEST things at the BEST prices and you know we are all about Fashion and Finance over here. One thing that I want in my life is Prissy’s Shoe Closet. She did a post on it a while back, and I thought it was set up so nicely. Take a look at the pics here.
It was a pleasure to Interview Prissy, I found out so much about her that I never would have known just from her pretty pictures and our Twitter convos. I’m sure you’re eager to find out more about the woman behind Rush Our Fashion, so enjoy Prissy’s interview below:
Age: A lady never tells LOL
Full Time Career: My title is called a Quality System Coordinator. I write all of the SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures) for my company. I also conduct all of the Training Classes & I perform audits on a weekly basis.
Tell Me and My Readers a little bit about yourself and your background.
I grew up in a very small town in Georgia. I was raised by my grandmother from 3mos until the age of 13. I then moved to Florida to live with my mom. While still in my teens I had a daughter, so I was pretty much raising her & myself! However, she turned out to be a beautiful young lady.
How would you describe your signature style? My signature style would consist of pants (any type), heels, and a blazer. I have a ton of blazers, at least 30-35 of them. I feel as though a blazer always pulls a look together (for a man or woman)
How do you go about creating an outfit or look? I mainly start with my shoes. I pick out a pair of shoes that I want to wear that day, and I build an outfit around them.
What is your FAVORITE Feature to accentuate? Ha! My legs…..but I RARELY wear skirts. I love my legs. They are so long & lean.
Do you have any Fashion Challenges? My breasts!!! These things are huge. I actually hate the size of them. I’m telling you, if I ever win the lottery, they will be the 1st thing to go! LOL!
What are your FAVORITE places to shop? Hands down…The Thrift Store. I am an avid thrifter. I’d much rather go to the thrift store than the mall.
Who are your FAVORITE Designers and/or Clothing Brands? As far as clothes, I really don’t have a brand that I prefer. I’ll pretty much wear anything. But, my shoes…they have to be on point. I love Jessica Simpson, Steve Madden, BCBGeneration, Sam Edelman, and Vince Camuto.
Is there a Spring trend that you’re dying to incorporate into your wardrobe? Neon colors! I’m loving those colors at the moment. As a matter of fact, I recently purchased a few pieces & I’ve already started wearing them.
Why Blogging? What turned you on to the Blogosphere? Hmmm…..I got into blogging about 2 years ago. I started out reading blogs like Karla’s Closet, Fashion Bananas, and Get it Girl Style. I thought to myself “This looks easy. I think I dress pretty decent. I can do this too.” I set a goal for myself to have my blog up and running by Nov 1, 2010 & I did just that!
Where do you see your Blog a year from now? I’m not set out to be a Famous Blogger (but if it happens, then it happens). I just want my blog & my style to evolve more. If people can find inspiration from my blog & the things that I wear, then that’s enough for me.
Name 3 Bloggers whose style you just live for:
As you know, my blog is geared towards FASHION and FINANCE, so tell me in what ways you combine the two. If you love fashion & you also love to shop (like me), make sure you have a monthly budget/allowance for yourself. You don’t want to overspend & live outside of your means for fashion.
What advice would you give to up and coming Fashion Bloggers? Be yourself. Be true to you. Don’t change or be someone just to “make it”.
Isn’t she just amazing? She has great style and gives great advice. I have to admit we share a common problem, my breasts give me so many problems when it comes to clothes. Sometimes I wanna put them in a drawer and pull them out when necessary, LOL!!! Even though Prissy doesn’t set out to be a Famous Blogger, I think that she will, because she definitely deserves to be.
Now choosing an outfit of Prissy’s to recreate was very intimidating. But I knew which one I wanted to try and recreate. It is one of my favorite looks from her. I would have never put these pieces together on my own, but thanks to her inspiration, I did. I was nervous, but here goes….
So….How did I do? Prissy, I hope you like my recreation!
As ALWAYS Dolls…
Love You for Following,
