Blogger Darling of the Day

This month's Blogger Darling of the Day is Ashley from

Ashley was one of the first blogs I started following.  I thought she was so cool, pretty and very bad a$$.   Why bad a$$, have you seen her posing out in the snow??
Ashley is 21 years old. ( Yea, I could be her mother, she is only 2 years older than son1) .  She lives in Minnesota.  It's cold there.  She is a recent college graduate waiting to get into graduate school.  She has been blogging in general for nearly ten years now, but she's only been style blogging for a year. She just recently celebrated her 1 year anniversary of her blog.  She likes shopping (obviously), shoes, photography, web design, caramel macchiatos, green tea, blueberry muffins, boots, sweatshirt weather, the color pink, and the number 3.  

Here are my question that I put to Ashley:

1.  Favorite color of socks to wear?
     I think I favor patterns more than colors.  I particularly like argyle.  If a sock is patterned in argyle, it's the right sock for me.

2.  What reality TV show would you want to be on?
    The Amazing Race.  Even though I get nauseous on planes, can barely swim, and can only speak English, I'd still love to give it a go.  I could do an eating challenge.  I can eat a lot for a small person.  Except for dairy, because I'm lactose intolerant. (hey Ashley, I applied for AR and didn't get picked, maybe we should apply together)

3.  What is your favorite daily thing to wear?
    I'm a big fan of scarves.  My collection is nearing 60, which is absolutely ridiculous, but I love--and wear--them all.  I also like wearing underwear everyday, because that's how I roll. 

4.  Who do you think is the best dressed man in Hollywood?
    I don't follow celebrity fashion at all...but Christian Bale always looks good, right?

5.  Who do you think is the worst dressed woman in Hollywood?
    I'm going to go with Helena Bonham Carter.  I like her philosophy, but her execution?  Not so much.

6.  How do you organize your closet?  Color, type of clothing, etc.
    Okay, so, my room is perpetually messy, but I try to organize my closet by type of clothing first, and then by color.  So all my dresses are up front, and then they're sorted by color.  I keep my jackets and sweatshirts in the back.  I don't have a big closet, so I store all my skirts in a dresser (or, um, on the floor.  Remember what I said about perpetually messy?), and all my jeans, trousers, and shorts on a shelf.  I can't wait for my very own walk-in closet someday.  It's my only dream for the future.

7.  If you could dress like any TV character, who would it be?
    Honestly, I don't watch much television, so I don't quite know.  I get oddly inspired when I watch old episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210, though (which, for the record, isn't very often).  I wouldn't mind having some of the show's wardrobe in my closet, but it's not like I'd wear all those pieces at once.

8.  What are your favorite accessories excluding shoes?
    Excluding shoes?!  That's a tough question.  I like earrings a lot.  Oh, and sunglasses!  I have way too many...

9.  Is there any outfit that you have EVER worn that still haunts you to this day?
    Oh yes.  I used to dress like a bit of a strumpet, if you will.  Not too bad, but yes, a bit.  My worst problem was not wearing pants when I should have.  I mean, I was still classy about it.  But that's a lot of thigh.

10.  What celebrity/fashion icon would you want to take with you on a shopping spree?
    I don't care as long as they're paying.

Please go check out Ashley's blog, she curently has some blooper photo's up and they are too much fun!  I think you will enjoy her sense of style, sense of humor and her photography!

What a great interview. I love me some Ashley!

Two Eyes in the Mirror is the first blog I followed regularly as well! I love her sense of humor and I really love how she doesn't take herself too seriously. That makes me feel more confident to post on my blog. You know?

Love you and Ashley!
