Shopping and fashion, ooh la la!

I've kind of really been getting into fashion more and more lately and reading some fashion blogs.  They are blogs where people post their outfits on a semi-daily basis and tell where they got each piece they are wearing.  It's so fun to see the style of others.  There is one that I like to follow here in Austin and you can see her linked on my sidebar.  I've always loved to shop, what girl doesn't, right?  The fashion from SATC is one of the best characters and Carrie/SJP can just about pull of anything and make it cute.  When I live in a house that has cable, I regularly tune into What Not to Wear and get some great styling tips from Stacy and Clinton. 

Sometimes I feel like I have a good sense of style, but there are things I just don't think I can wear or b/c I don't live in NYC or somewhere super glamorous, it doesn't seem right.  Everything is so casual these days, I don't like to stand out too much, but I've been thinking more about what is my personal style.  I tend to always gravitate toward a lot of prints and some bright colors, but then I have stuff that doesn't seems to match or go together.  I'm not sure exactly what I'm trying to say here, except that I think fashion is super fun and I'm realizing just how much I like to shop. 

I just found a few more fashion blogs to read and maybe some day I will take pictures of my own outfits...I need a little more confidence for that though!  Some of these fashion bloggers even use it as their full time job and get free products for giving their opinion, etc.   I may add some more to my blog roll, but it may be too many!  For me shopping is an experience, so I like to actually go to the store and see, feel and try things on rather than shopping on the internet.  But there is this great site, Eshakti, where you give them your measurements and they custom fit the clothes to your body!  Awesome for someone like me w/ big boobs who can't fit into shirts and dresses sometimes.  I'm thinking about getting a dress from them, there are so many to choose from and so many pretty colors!  Anyway, I guess I just wanted to share my thoughts on shopping and fashion.  Does any body else like it as much as me?

Oh and happy birthday to my dad today!!!
