if loving fashion is a crime, i plead guilty.

saying that i love fashion could quite possibly be the understatement of the century. some people love cats, i love shoes. some people get a high from doing riding roller coasters, or from doing drugs. i get a high from walking into a store and being surrounded by high quality pieces of fashion. it truely is like you are wearing art. i know some of you may be thinking "i have NEVER seen that girl in a Diane Von Furstenberg, or even seen that girl out in a trendy piece." but then again i don't go out that much at all. you may have just caught me on a REALLY bad day.  even when i go out without makeup though or when im not feeling my best i always try to remember this statement by alexander wang "anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing."

when i was little i always had a great fashion sense.  i always dressed myself in dresses with matching socks, shoes, bows, accessories, even my underwear matched!  once I got into 3rd grade though, I started wearing uniforms and I cut all my hair off to my ears (bye twelve glorious inches of curly hair).  those were the saddest days of fashion in my life. all the way until 8th grade.  then i hit high school and became obsessed with mary-kate olsen and nicole richie.  to this day they are two of my biggest fashion inspirations (those are going to come later on).  after high school, i always had a great sense of style, but i just didnt express it in the way i dressed. let me correct myself by saying that i infused it through particular outfits, but now that im older I have done a lot better job of not just admiring fashion from afar.  I don't just see things in a magazine and appreciate it and love it.  I actually go out and try to buy that particular piece, or I try to buy pieces inspired by whatever it is I saw.

coco chanel said "women should always be two things, classy and fabulous." and what a bold but true statement that is.  i feel that now that I'm older i realize now...HOW YOU PRESENT YOURSELF REALLY MATTERS.  I want people to look at me and know that I am proud of who I am.  I want people to see who I am by what I am wearing.  I want my clothes and accessories, my style, to make a statement.  I know that I'm not the type of person whose personality blends into the crowd, so my love for fashion should stand out and help reflect that as well.

these past few months i've just felt myself growing so much more confident. i feel myself becoming that girl who gets up in the morning and all i want to do is spend the morning picking out a fabulous outfit (or three) for the day. i could literally spend hours on the computer looking through fashion blogs, fashion photography, modeling photos. Its so intriguing. All of it. I wouldn't have my love for it any other way.

oh and just for you to know: ill be writing different themed posts about fashion!  this was just kind of my introduction.

the ladybug blog.

well, hello there new friend. my name is kaileigh-elizabeth, and i am twenty-two years old.  when i was little, my grandma used to call me ladybug so i thought it very fitting for naming this collection of things i'll write.  my heart is so fond of many things including but surely not limited to: writing, fashion {anything and everything about it}, baking home-made goodies, crafting, and photography.   i decided to start this brand new place to write (you can visit my old space here) on august 30th, 2011, in an effort to have a space that had just a few more hints of me in it.  enjoy!
