... to a little nook in the blog world that's all about style.
I have been wanting to do this for a long time and its finally HERE!  I've had a life long love for fashion and I truly enjoy sharing things that I find in the market.  I have recently become a mommy and not only am I on top of what is out there for us, but our little ones too.  And let me tell ya, there is so much out there!! 

So, who am I you ask, and why should you listen to me rant about what I love?
I am a home grown fashionista who, after years of Catholic school uniforms - aka "peter pan" collars and plaid jumpers - and growing up in a small town, learned that in order to be fashionable I would either have to be creative or look elsewhere.  This is when my style identity was born.  High school prom is a time when girls go out looking for the perfect dress.  In my tiny, conservative, southern town, my "perfect dress" did not exist.  So I designed my own prom dress and had a local seamstress create my vision.  What was my vision you wonder? It was the perfect little black dress that was not complete without a pair of knee high platform boots from NYC (this was after much begging and pleading with my parents of course).  I was and continue to be the kind of girl who refuses to conform and always wears clothes that speak of who I am.  This ultimately allowed my creative spirit and knack for fashion to bloom.  Most of my working years were spent in the retail industry in such avenues as retail sales, management, buying, and visual merchandising.  These experiences allowed me to keep up with trends, learn about the inner-workings of the fashion industry, learn from other talented professionals, and develop a keen eye for putting looks together.  As an English major in college, finally my love for fashion and writing come together to create this blog.

And here starts my rant.  I have an obsession for shoes and bags, I love all things home, I crave beauty products, I cannot walk past a paper store with out going in, I cannot resist cute baby things (i mean who can?), and I live for the latest fashions.

So enough about me.  Style Nook promises to bring lots of fabulous finds such as fun websites, product links, deals, etc, and share some of the little things I love.
Hope you love 'em too.
