Fashion, Fun, & a little Food

Hi there!

My name is Amy and I’m a 30-something single city girl now living in the River North neighborhood of Chicago with my adorable cat Coco – named after Chanel of course. I work as an Executive Assistant for a financial firm in the Loop. And in case you hadn’t guessed, I love denim and polka-dots!

I have always loved fashion, and have a Bachelor’s degree in Clothing, Textiles, and Fashion Merchandising from New Mexico State University.  I believe that taking pride in your appearance is important to show you have respect for yourself and for those around you. This doesn’t mean you have to be a supermodel – it means developing a style that showcases who you are, and that makes you feel confident! It also doesn’t mean you have to be rich, I’m a huge bargain shopper! My favorite quote from Rachel Zoe pretty much sums it up I think – “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.”

I will also post the occasional recipe and foodie things on here, and you can always check out my recipe index. I follow a mostly  “Primal” or “Paleo” eating lifetyle.

Thanks for visiting and I always love comments! : )

    I am completely guilty of following specific blogs but never posting comments. From what I’ve heard bloggers like comments. I came across your blog today and could not pass up the opportunity to post. First off, I love your sense of style and the fact that you are not above shopping at Kmart & Target. On many style blogs the only stores you hear referenced are Nordstrom, Saks, J Crew, etc. Unless I hit the clearance racks those stores are out of my clothing budget league. Secondly, I was super excited to read that you follow a paleo diet. I am 8 weeks into the low carb/paleo lifestyle and LOVE IT! I have never felt better just by making such simple changes in my diet. The fact that I have lost 12 lbs is a huge bonus! I look forward to checking out some of the books that you recommend and picking up some new recipes, too. Kim

      Hi Kim! We do love comments! Glad I could inspire you with some budget items! I think you can look great on any budget!

      That is great news about you going Paleo! It is defininitely not just about losing weight, but feeling great as well. My energy level is so much higher now! The best benefit for me is that my appetite takes care of itself – I’m never hungry and the weight just falls off! (and stays off)

      Thanks again for the comment, hope to see more, and that you will share your progress with us!

    I am so glad to find your blog where you incorporate both Paleo/Primal and fashion. I started Paleo in February and my hubby joined me in July. I’m looking forward to trying some of your recipes.

    I do like your style and attitude!!! Just found your blog. Though not a blogger, I troll the sites for fashion and friends of fashion. I’m really thrilled when I find a style I can relate to! I just turned 50…..yikes……but I’m more 35….can’t give up on the fun of dress just yet!!! Oh, we have 3 kitty babies, all rescues……love you already!!!
