I know you probably are aware of how much work can go into something as simple as a blogpost, with research, wording and working out concepts. In fact it's so much work, that even though I secretly cringe inside whenever I hear some professional blogger explain yet again that the reason half their posts are sponsored is because "Blogging is so much work and I don't I deserve to be compensated for bringing you this awesomeness?", writing these posts I sometimes almost understand that line of thinking. And while I'm so not about to go pro with this hobby (Like, um who's gonna pay me to write consumerism critiques again?), I do have an admiration for those who spend their time researching and writing for the benefit of others. That means you Mary, for instance.
So while we wait for me to finish the next post in this series, I'll bring you some vicarious clothes joy and inspiration by resurrecting a little series from the past. In the first round Dirt Road Style never really went anywhere, due to my shyness to explain people why I was gonna post their picture on the internets, but since a number of my friends out here have entered the blogging world, that task just got a lot easier.
Here's hoping my extremely stylish friend/drinking buddy/ business partner/coven member ;) Amelia joins them soon. And opens her etsy store back up so that folks can enjoy her amazing jewelry.
Not only does Amelia have wicked style, but she makes it happen out of a pretty small wardrobe (girl has one pair of shoes! Take that minimalists of the world!), always looks totally unique and as folks out here like to say if you're not wearing Carhartts or yoga pants, "fancy".
The girl's gifted, has mad tattoos, is a jewelry fiend, rocks leopard print like a boss, rides bikes in dresses (People think this is something that can't be done and shouldn't be attempted. We know better.)wears vests (a style-must in my book, in case you didn't know) and is willing to ham it up for me even though she knows Imma gonna put them pics on the interwebs.
Plus, she's super cute.
So in Dirt Road Style I'll be documenting the awesome and original styles of assorted country folks, as an antidote to the uniformly corporate antics of most "street" style websites. Whaddya think?
