So today is a pretty special day. Scratch that, today is a VERY special day! I am so excited because today, Graceful Glamour Girl turns 3!!!! Can you believe it? I sure can’t. Let’s talk a little bit about this crazy ride I have been on for the last 3 years. If you would have sat me down and told me 3 years ago that I was going to form partnerships with some of the biggest names in fashion, I would get to visit Conde Nast’s office in NYC, I would have my own successful fashion column in the newspaper and would be working in Digital Marketing for my day job, I would have laughed hysterically and walked out of the room. There is no amount of words that could come out of my mouth that would express the gratitude for each and every one of you that read this blog. I know that God had big plans for this blog but I never dreamed they would be this big!
The day I created GGG I sat down with my mom and told her what I was thinking. I told her that I wanted a place for women, young or old, to come and be inspired with clothing, makeup and inspiration. I wanted it to be a judgment free place where women feel empowered and not beat down. I had a vision to help young women find conservative clothes at reasonable prices and to help make their young adult years a little easier. Talk about big dreams to fulfill. I had absolutely no idea if that would ever happen. I didn’t even know if any one besides my immediate family would read this. However I had a dream and I worked hard for it. I taught myself the basics, then went to conferences to further my knowledge. I put in the time and made this my life for the last 3 years. Who knew that around year 2 I would be offered a great job in the Digital Marketing world? Who knew that right before celebrating year number 3, I would be teaching a college class on how to create and maintain a blog? I surely did not dream in a million years I would get any of these opportunities. So thank you all for that. You have made this small project turn into a great accomplishment that I hold near and dear to my heart. I love every single person who reads my blog. This is the place I can be real, raw and genuine. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
Okay, now about this outfit! How perfect that today’s outfit is a great professional outfit that is very work appropriate. I found this black suede dress at Target and I have to say, I am really impressed with their fashion department lately. They have truly upped their game. Don’t you think? I added a crisp white shirt underneath and some adorable black wedges. Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!
