Girl of the Blogosphere: Elaine

*Originally published March 22, 2010

First Name: Elaine
City: Salt Lake City
Occupation: Wife :)

Who is your fashion inspiration?
My fellow fashion bloggers! I love real style. Not everyone can afford YSL pumps or a Chanel bag. so I really look up to the thrift-savvy girls who can make an old grandma blouse look chic.

What is your favourite place to shop?
Right now, I've restricted myself to thrift stores and consignment stores. Mostly for financial reason but I also shop there because it's fun! You never know what you're going to walk out of the store with.

What is your current favourite fashion trend?
I'm loving the military look right now - I just hope I can find a jacket or something at a thrift store soon!

What is the current trend you dislike the most?
See-through lace tops with bras underneath, spikes, studs, exposed zippers. They may appeal to others but it's just not my style.

Why did you start your blog?
I have been following fashion blogs for a while but I didn't see anything that really stuck out to me - and nothing catered to modesty. I wanted to show people that you can be moest AND look good at the same time!!

How would you describe your style?
Classic, comfortable, practical, modest.

What is the one thing you are dying to buy this spring?
A trench coat!!!! I just can't find one within my price range and one that fits my shoulders/arms comfortably...

What is the most expensive thing you have bought?
My Tsubo boots. They were $200!!!!! That is a lot of money to I did get a $40 cashback so it helped a little.

What is your favourite vacation destination?
From the places I've already been to so far, it would have to be Hawaii!!
