Isaac's Style Questionnaire

I just finished reading How to have Style by the fabulous Isaac Mizrahi and I am calling it a must-read for anyone who feels slightly blah (or a lot blah) about his/her closet as of late. Speaking of feeling blah, I guess that segues into an introduction of myself and this blog.

I'm a southern gal living in Knoxville, Tennessee, trying to seek out the lovely things in life. I grew up in a small town but have lived in the big city of K-town since 2000 when I began college at UT to study art history. After that, I decided to go back to school and study communications -- specifically PR.

After finishing my master's degree in public relations, I just knew I'd land my dream job right away...fast forward a couple years later to the present and still no dice. I feel blessed to have my current job as a visual media librarian in a university art department, but it's not exactly what I'd hoped I'd be doing after I graduated.

At one point, I considered pursuing a degree in library science or even a master's in information technology, but I really wanted to pursue my love of art by getting a masters in PR so I could hopefully work in an art museum.

That's how I came to start this blog...as a little creative outlet for myself during a creativity dry spell in my life.

Reading Isaac's book inspired me and I think it will inspire you too. I think this book is just the thing to give you a needed boost. It is all about taking what clothes you have and doing more with them. In the beginning of the book is a neat little set of questions for the reader to answer and ponder. I am in the process of overhauling my own closet and this book was a great little how-to manual for along the way.

And speaking over overhauling, I'm also working on overhauling my life...one blog post at a time. Thanks for joining me and I hope you'll stick around for the journey.
