After I had my third baby, I realized, that although I was a pretty good dresser and had some style, I didn't feel comfortable with myself all the time.  I had a lot of  "just do" outfits and clothing, most I bought in an attempt to save money. 

 

One day, I was watching a TV show (Oprah?) where Valentino said you shouldn't have any piece of clothing that you don't absolutely love. I am paraphrasing of course, but the concept really stuck with me.  I actually gave away or sold every single item that I didn't feel I HAD to have.  I realized that over the years, my must have items were all from thrift stores or vintage.  So I made the decision to start buying vintage and second-hand again.  I started creating outfits for myself that I loved and were REALLY inexpensive. I started selling my finds to my friends, and eventually launched an online-vintage/secondhand business. 

 

People loved my clothes, but seemed to be even more interested in how I built such a good, expressive wardrobe on little money. A friend suggested that I start blogging. Although I am a writer, I am new at blogging and made several beginners mistakes (I am a bit long-winded).  However, I am getting the hang of it and I love blogging.  I don't think I can stop! 

 

My question is - What made you go into the blogging business?
