Wendy's Look Book

I love the way she styles her clothes. I don't have her figure or her budget but I love so many of her looks. It makes me want to sew a great pencil skirt and find the perfect white blouse.

But it also makes me think the first thing one needs for sewing great clothes is a fabulous pair of shoes.

Her story is even more amazing.

"I grew up in foster care and was extremely scared of being homeless at 18. The only reason I applied to college was to have a place to live. I applied to all of the University of California colleges and got accepted into UC Berkeley. And to this day, I feel like it was a miracle, because UC Berkeley’s first day of school was exactly on my 18th birthday. I emancipated from the system and moved to college on the same day. I’ve carried a garbage bag with my personal belongings from home to home, eaten out of trash cans, and felt incredibly alone in my adolescent years."
http://www.featherfactor.com/2011/04/interview-with-wendy-nguyen.html

"Ever since she was a child, Wendy loved being surrounded by fabrics and textiles. In the early '90s, her parents sewed in sweatshops and paid her a nickel for every shirt she could flip collars and pockets on. She was unfortunately placed in foster care at the age of 15, but studied hard in high school, emancipated from the system, and got into UC Berkeley. After college, she worked as a business-banking consultant at Wells Fargo for five years. Even though she enjoyed being a financial advisor, she did not feel creatively challenged, so she quit and pursued the arts and fashion. She sees the world in textures, shapes, designs, and movements. With the encouragement of her boyfriend and close friends, she started her YouTube channel in January of 2011 and the blog shortly thereafter in March. With over 23 million views on YouTube, her channel is known for high quality and creative videos with a strong sense of personal style. Both platforms have given her the freedom to creatively express herself, and more importantly, the ability to share her love for fashion with others."

I thought Ada was just paying you a compliment (for noticing that Wendy's beauty is more than skin deep).

I showed DH a lot of the outfits I liked (I'd have to change things up - hot pants to skirts, etc.) but he didn't like them.
