About Me





Hi, my name is Maddie. I'm a recent graduate from Point Park University in Pittsburgh. I majored in Global Cultural Studies. I have a passion for learning about other cultures, understanding the complexities of the world, and traveling. My other passion is, of course, fashion. I am by no means a fashion expert but I stay true to my own sense of style. I hope I am able to inspire you and show you some ideas you can apply to your own wardrobe.

I would eventually LOVE to go back to school and get my masters in fashion styling or fashion merchandising. I've wanted to start a blog for awhile to showcase my personal style. Blogs that have inspired me are ZoellaLEHAPPYViva LuxurySeams for DesireCHICMUSE, and so many others!

I am constantly shopping and may have a bit of a shoe addiction. My style ranges from classic to funky. My mom used to always tell me that whenever I would walk into a store I would always pick out the "ugliest" shoes. Today that has worked in my favor. A lot of the clothes in my closet have been pieces I've picked up from flea markets or secondhand stores. I get so thrilled when I can find a piece that's totally unique or unconventional. Another wonderful thing about thrifting is getting these one of a kind items for super cheap.

My favorite places to shop are Goodwill, Salvation Army, H&M, Urban Outfitters, LuLus, etc. My favorite thing about fashion is being creative and expressing personal style. I feel like it's important to be playful and always experiment with piecing together an outfit.

Aside from shopping, I enjoy:
  • playing with my pug
  • painting
  • watching foreign films (mostly french and czech new wave)
  • listening to shoegaze
  • visiting my best friend in NYC
  • playing games with my nephews 
I hope you all enjoy my blog and I'm able to offer you some inspiration.
