Awards & 7 Interesting Things:

Honored by the fabulous FashionJazz, the divine Petra of Voyages en Rose, and the darling Nina of Ballerina's Closet Obsession ~ thank you, my dears!
And now, for 7 Interesting Things about CC:
1) I am a rabid overdresser.
2) I looove the cold, especially when it snows! This photo courtesy Fellow Fashionista Monica of Ciao, Chessa!
3) At the tender age of 10, I learned Origami, the Japanese art of paper folding. It is traditionally done with square paper but I couldn’t resist posting this dollar bill shirt!
4) It is nearly impossible for me to find shoes, as I am a size (gulp!) 41. Just got these amazing zipper detail boots on sale at shopbop.com ~ thank goodness Paul & Joe Sister make an 11!
5) I speak fluent Spanish. I was a Spanish and Art History major at Emory University and taught high school Spanish in New York City for 5 years.
6) I am addicted to the song “Fireflies” by Owl City. Addicted.
7) I flew DG’s plane (for about 5 seconds, but that counts, right?).
Also received this gorgeous award from The Society of Style. Thank you, doll!
CC is passing on these two lovely awards to the following Fellow Fashionistas:
A Piece of Passion – for her amazing imagery.
Hottest Heels – for her delightful daily shoe posts and her amazing comments.
Delight by Design – for her flawless aesthetic.
Class and Fab – for her wonderful runway and street style trend distillations.
Congrats, darlings!
xoxox,
CC

Thank you Carrie for your comment on my entry! I loved reading this post, those zipper detail booties are HOT! I saw a similar pair at Marshalls by Michael Kors but they weren't my size :( Hate when that happens! Have a fab weekend!

congrats on all the awards, I always find your blog really inspiring!

Jacqueline said...

I really liked reading some different tidbits about you Carrie! I used to speak fluent Spanish also and immersed myself in it for 4 years. When I was in high school I desperately wanted to attend Emory as a communications major, but I stayed in my hometown area. I hate the cold though so we differ in that area. I have pretty big feet, but not as big as yours (39-39.5)=) So happy you found some cute shoes at Shopbop! This was one of my favorite posts of yours! xoxo

Chere CC,

Always lovely to get to know a new little thing or two about you.

I really do hope for the sake of some fortunate kids that you go back to teaching some day. Little people should have terrfic teacher-crushes, and you would be a topper.

If it makes you feel better about having big feet, they usually have more selection when it comes to the clearance room.

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Yay for speaking flunt Spanish and for doing origami! Origami always seemed really difficult to me, plus you need to be patient to do it, so I guess that's why I could never remember even the bits I ever learnt of it. And it's hard for me to imagine how one can love the cold and snow... I'm the opposite :)

COCAMIA said...

(IN)DECOROUS TASTE said...

The zipper boots are AWESOME! As are huge feet, haha. I'm a size 41 (some brands, 42, yikes), so I feel ya. Why some brands stop their sizes at 40 is BEYOND ME. Lauren
