FBFF: Locational Influences

I am so excited to be posting my first FBFF today! I had an interview bright and early this morning, so I am getting to it late, unfortunately.  FBFF= Fashion Beauty Friend Friday. Its an opportunity for bloggers to network in a way, and to share interesting topics! Check out all the other responses on Modly Chic!

Although I have lived in Virginia for 2 years now, I am still a Jersey girl.  Unfortunately, Jersey gets a bad style reputation from certain TV shows such as Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, and my personal favorite, Real Housewives of NJ. 

Yep! I ordered Teresa's t-shirt (also my blog photo):

The cast of Jersey Shore for example has ONE cast member actually FROM NJ, and North Jersey at that.  North and South Jersey are two totally different regions.  Granted, NJ has been referred to as a giant suburb, which in a way is true.  North Jersey is the suburb for New York, whereas South Jersey (represent!!) is a suburb of Philadelphia. And yet, we have a style all our own! Here's a photo representation:

For a laugh:

1. What part of the world do you blog from?

I blog currently from rural Virginia. And I mean RURAL Virginia. There are corn fields across the street from my house, and cattle so close you can hear them mating. Yeah, makes for a great lullaby to fall asleep to!

2. If you had to describe the overall mode of dress for where you live
what would you say?

My two best friends down here, Audrey and Katie, are quite fashion focused, but I think they are the exception rather than the rule. Most women my age have multiple children and dress in sweats, tee shirts, etc. If I go to Charlottesville, the vibe changes, but it's a college town, so the sweats, tees, etc are apparent there too. Oh, and there's nothing wrong with sweats and tees...I'm wearing it now!

3. Do you fit in with the status quo around you or do you break the

I think I definitely break the mold.  Without sounding too full of myself, I get that impression from the compliments I get.  The most plain and simple answer would be my clothes.  I have bought the majority of my clothes in NJ, so they're from Macy's, etc., which is not down here.  That alone breaks the mold in the sense that the clothes I wear are not available down here.

I'll be honest- I am known to be caught wearing sweats and a tee at times...

4. If you had to describe your style by naming a specific city, what
would you be?

I would say I'm a Jersey girl.  Jersey girls are known for their style and attitude, as well as up to a choice of 5 malls within 15 minutes.  Yeah, get jealous!

And my absolute favorite:

  1. hahaha I love that you embrace the "Jersey Girl" jokes. In reality, every place has our embarrassing style reps.
