I started this blog two years ago as a way to express my creativity in a college town where inspiration was lacking, and the fashion industry is non-existent. At first, it was a mashup of things I was interested in including makeup, dorm decor and the occasional Youtube video. Over the years my dedication to the blog fluctuated, but it was always something I wished I could dedicate more time to. I was finally able to fine tune the direction I wanted my blog to go in, and what goal I wanted to reach with it.
My goal is to use my personal style to show my readers that you can dress however you’d like and look good no matter your budget. I noticed most fashion bloggers have lost the integrity of style blogging and do it simply to show off the expensive clothing they have or the “amazing” lifestyle they live. To me it’s not about that. I want to show people that they can look good wearing any garment, no matter the cost, as long as they know how to rock it & express their own personal style. That’s the beauty of fashion!
After a lot of trial and error, I finally conquered my fear of failure and found my blogging voice. I really want to thank the loyal readers who have checked back on the blog continuously over the past two years, even when I went on hiatus. I also want to welcome all the new readers! I have to give a special thanks to my best friends Nicole and Kj who supported me when Alexistheg was just a seed of a thought, encouraged me to continue when I doubted myself, literally got down on their hands and knees to get the perfect image, and listened to me ask over & over again “which picture do you like better?”.
I have so much more that I want to accomplish, and this is just the very beginning! I hope you all stick along for the ride!
