Everyone, please meet my new friend Jamie! She is the style maven behind the ever popular fashion blog… More Than Turquoise!
Her sense of style is UH-MAZING and her accessories are TO. DIE. FOR! Like…for real. Go check out her blog. Go ahead…I’ll wait. No, really…take your time and look around at all her fabulousness…don’t forget to come back though!
Are you dying right now! My jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw her post ‘Seeing Red’. You know what else…she’s not only beautiful and fashionable but she’s down to earth and funny too!
I knew she was a blogger here in New Mexico, but what I didn’t know was that she lives near me…like… literally 15 minutes away! I know, right! So I sent off an email, we coordinated our schedules and met up for lunch!
Needless to say, I was super nervous about what to wear. I mean, I do have tons of clothes from my favorite store of all time…White House Black Market, but my niche is all about looking cute with clothes from the thrift store.
This is what I wore…
I paired my $6.00 Ann Taylor top with my $38.00 J Brand jeans ( which I finally realized is the most expensive item I have ever thrifted ), along with my $9.99 Lucky Brand shoes and my $6.00 bracelet that I thrifted in Utah. My cardigan and necklace are from WHBM. That’s a TISSOT diamond encrusted watch my husband bought me for our anniversary. I never wear it because my eyesight is so bad I can’t read it, but it looked cute with my outfit, so I went with it.
Here is another shot that Mitch took:
I was having a good hair day, thanks to my new Sei Bella shampoo and conditioner from Melaleuca. Look at Miss Oreo gazing at me with love in her eyes…I love you too, my pretty girl!
Jamie and I sat and talked for three and a half hours! We discovered we have a lot in common. We both are well traveled. She has been to France, a place known for it’s fashionable women. I have been to Siberia, a place known for it’s miserable weather. That’s not all we have in common! Our husbands are our photographers. Hmm… I have a feeling that her husband MIGHT be using a better camera than the $50.00 camera on clearance from QVC that we are using. I’m just guessing, but I could be wrong. Let’s not forget about locale. She uses the beauty that is New Mexico as her backdrop. I use the fireplace in my living room. Hey, I tried going outside a couple of times but my hair kept getting blown around!
But seriously, we had a great time getting to know one another, and plan on doing lunch again soon. I can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing… :-)
