Flashback to 1 year, 1 month and 1 day at 2:24pm : Girl starts blog about fashion and food and spends some time writing posts that no one will ever read.
Flash forward to present day : Girl has blog about fashion and food with over 10,000 followers and wants to pull a Sally Fields Oscar moment and yell ” You like me, you really like me!!!!”
When I started my blog a little over a year ago I didn’t think anyone would be even remotely interested in reading my random, ramblings apart from my friends and family who it would be repeatedly forced upon through annoying Facebook updates.
Instead I’ve somehow ended up with willing followers, who I can harass with my thoughts as much as I want. Rookie mistake people.
But for reals, blogging has become an amazing outlet for me and knowing you guys are actually reading what I’m writing and responding to it, makes it super rewarding and fulfilling.

Photo Cred : Understated Leather Don’t Mess With Texas Campaign
Understated Leather is the example of a perfect pairing of talented minds and crafty hands.
Husband and wife team Jen and Josh, have built their brand around the idea of individuality. The Australian/Texan duo, craft hand made and up-cycled, vintage pieces that make you want to grab a guitar, kick up some dirt and ride into the Texas sunset on a motorcycle wearing nothing but a leather jacket. Well, looking at their newest campaign “Don’t Mess With Texas” that’s exactly what their wafty model Anna Herrin did.
The Understated Leather collection features leather jackets with metal hardware, laboriously pieced together by hand, denim jackets with engraved leather patches, fringed suede vests, engraved leather wallets and clutches and a completely custom made service.
In a world where fast fashion is ruling the roost, where clothing is produced in the tens of thousands, it’s more than a breath of fresh air seeing a label producing sustainable, ethical, good old fashioned hand made product.
With a “Go your own way” attitude, there is nothing standing in the way of this duo and the world other than global shipping. And they do that too.
