Featured: Lessons In Style w/ Jewel

I know a lot of cool people, which is awesome for me. But I like to also, make it awesome for you! Enter: Jewel. She is a chica I've known for quite some time now, a fantastic style blogger in her own right, and all around awesome lady. I asked if she would share some style perspective and she graciously agreed! Enjoy party peeps! 

Lessons In Style:
I very recently interviewed for a personal stylist position, and I was asked how I describe my style.  My answer almost always goes something like this every time I’m asked this question: Eclectic with a hint of feminine touch. Eclectic, because I like to be adventurous, experiment, and take risks, calculated risks of course with my style. Feminine, because I enjoy timeless pieces that transcends throughout the years and through seasons. I’m also drawn to structured pieces, clean lines, and I certainly do not shy from colors. In fact, I live in it.

Having been blogging for going on four years about personal style, I’ve learned a lesson or thirteen two along the way, thanks to Kasidy for allowing me to share a few of those with you!

Life Ninja

Street Fighter was one of my favorite video games growing up.  I used to play it all the time on my Play Station – and by “play” I mean I mashed the buttons on the controller and got really good at acting like I meant to do stuff, which I feel like is a skill in itself so – I still win. This mostly has something to do with what's after the jump...

Can I help You?

Kerry Olivia Washington Pope is swan-posing in agreement.

Dance is my job, and I loveee it. But I still have to pay bills and keep Sallie Mae off my back (she’s sooo thirsty ya’ll), so I still have a day job.  I work a front desk job, which can be interesting for a number of reasons – the word “interesting” being a euphemism for everything on a spectrum from ‘decidedly mundane’ to ‘genuinely interesting’ to ‘Ohh Lordt! why me??’ If you work in any type of front desk/office manager/admin assistant/service role – you know exactly what I’m saying.  
The other day, I had a ‘why me’ day. I typically greet folks with a, “can I help you?” and a smile. A few different people took it upon themselves to catch attitudes with me over things I had absolutely no control over.  So, that was fun.
 I'm going somewhere with this, probably. Let's find out together after the jump...
