Thou shalt not covet they neighbors Blog.

Oh where to begin?

I have to say that I was discouraged by yesterday's lack of comments. I have been reading all sorts of amazing blogs lately by beautiful stylish women who clearly have tons of adoring readers and I let that nasty green monster get the best of me. Jealousy is not very stylish. I tend to be hard on myself and I think that maybe I seek more approval from others than I care to admit. Has anyone else experienced this when starting a new blog? It's kind of bizarre.

So I was moping around this morning feeling fairly overwhelmed and then I got this WONDERFUL compliment from Nika who has the most daring and original style. She writes a blog called Irie Chic and she nominated me for a Blog Award! To be honest, I'm not really sure what this entails but I am sure that it rules. More on this to come. ThankYouThankYouThankYou.

Despite my case of the grumpies, I did however still manage to look super cute! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you.....THE BEST T-SHIRT EVER:

I haven't been able to wear this bad boy for a while because it is super tiny and since I've just had a baby I was not super tiny at all. It fits again which is pretty sweet(p.s.much more to come on baby weight/body acceptance later on in this blog!)

I love it paired with these glasses. I bought it at a vintage clothing show for $4. That was the best $4 I have ever spent. The rest of the outfit is nothing to write home about. I wanted to keep all the focus on the HILARITY.

I may post something else later today. I have to write about my blog award and I want to do another "style shuffle" before the week is over so keep checking in!


  1. Oh I totally know what you mean!

    You were the first person who wasn't friend or family to actually be a follower of mine, and the only person who has me on their blog roll! I'm definitely not super popular at all, and I do get a little bummed when I see people with 300+ followers and tons of comments. Then again, those girls are WAY more stylish and have been blogging for longer, so I guess I cant hate =/

    OMG congrats on the blog award! That is so flippen cool =D yaaaay

  2. I commented yesterday, but forgot to do the captcha. Oops.
    I know how you feel about not getting a ton of feedback, but remeber when we blogged on Myspace? Just because there's a lack of comments doesn't mean there aren't readers. A counter will rememdy that. Besides, it takes time to built a following. I started off with around 10 followers and got up to 100+ subscribers plus occasional readers. Just keep doing you!
    I do like that tee! Don't remember seeing it before. It's giving me an idea for my octopus tattoo-minus the groucho theme though, lol.

  3. here's the deal. I love your blog AND I love your style... sometimes instead of being inspired, I get jealous lol. Im a hater. If there is no comment, it is because I rushed over to google my ass the same shit you were wearing. j/k (kinda). Seriously, I need the hook up.

  4. The glasses look cute on you!!

  5. I understand your frustration about wanting more comments. I also want more comments on Fashionable Academics. I think it will just take time.

    Also, I can't actually comment on your blog (or a lot of others on my own computer) because of the comment settings. It's frustrating to have to wait to use my office computer to be able to comment, and sometimes I just forget during the interim.

    You are rocking those glasses!

  6. who doesn't love feedbacks right ;)
    I totally get how you're feeling but it does take time to build a following that's why extra patience is needed..just don't worry about it to much and have fun blogging sooner or later you'll get there =D

  7. very cool shirt

    come check out the first ever fashion blog from a guys POV, let He know what you think

  8. I love those glasses, and the shirt is awesomeness! Don't fret about lack of comments my dear... you have a fabulous blog here and as time goes by it'll attract more and more peeps to it. I think you're pretty darn popular for being so new! Keep on keepin' on, and I look forward to your post-baby body image posts. You better believe there are tons of ladies out there dealing with the same issues who would love to find someone to relate to!


Comments are Stylish.
