    Happy blogiversary doll! PS-I love the longer hair!

  19. October 13, 2011 / 3:04 pm

    Happy Blogaversary first and foremost! I really enjoy your blog. My favorite post is “test drive” where you wore your Charlotte Olympia wedges for the fist time. I love it when you said “After 5 minutes they were safely back inside.” I found it hilarious because sometimes we love our shoes so much we want to hold them hostage instead of showing the world.

  20. October 13, 2011 / 5:09 pm

    Happy Blogiversary!! WOW… what an accomplishment! I’m only a few months deep and you’re right it is addicting! I can’t wait to cross the path you are now!

    Its hard for my to pick a fav post as I’ve only been following you a month or so (via Bloglovin), but I will say this… so far I’ve clicked on everyone of your posts and haven’t been disappointed yet!

    Good luck love!

    Well First I would like to say Happy One Year Anniversary!!!!!!!!! I’ve been trying to start a blig and understand it can sometimes be tough trying to update on a regular basis. You are a great blogger. I love the fact that you look for fashion steals, as well as shop in thrift stores. I would say the October 9, 2011 post is a favorite. It’s more recent, but hear me out. I’m more of a skinny jean and loose shirt type of girl. I like wearing fitted clothes as well, but being plus size I’m more into to the loose button up shirts. You paired the grey Seven jeans with the H&M white button up. The necklace was cute and not to flashy and the heels were great. The platforms stand out as well as the red purse. I loved you other posts that include animal prints and fur. Just to let you know, I LOVE ANIMAL PRINTS. ALL ANIMAL PRINTS ๐Ÿ™‚ Great job on your blog and thanks for keeping us updated on FNO and Fashion week.

    Hey girlie, I have been loving your blog ever since your fashion bomb feature over at Claire’s site. Let’s just say if I had a blog, it would be completely similar to yours because your outfits, your humor, your like/dislikes, even your size and body shape, are the same as mine… no kidding. My all time fave blog is WTChucks!!? I remember being at work bored, and that blog of yours made my day, Bible! I laughed so hard because I could relate to everything you said about your feet! I keep going back to that post for giggles. Thanks for that girl.

    Congrats on your anniversary!!!!!!!Keep up the good work!

    Happy One Year Blogiversary ๐Ÿ™‚

    Favorite blog post is going to have to be May2011. The color blocking was well done, I loved the white blazer, and the wedges were strappy and sexy. I loved every single piece in the outfit.

    My favorite post of yours is the “Leather and Fur” post from February 2011. That was around the time I first stumbled onto your blog page and that was the very first outfit of yours that I recreated. I have been inspired ever since! I really admire the fearlessness in your style.

  25. October 14, 2011 / 2:19 am

    Congrats on the 1 year anniversary!!! Keep it up girl, love watching the stylings of Ms. Steele!

  26. October 14, 2011 / 2:53 am

    Its your anniversary (Toni Toni Tone voice lol) I would have to say my favorite post of yours is the one from Pretty Girls Rock Dresses and that because I’m in it lol. Hehehe

  27. October 14, 2011 / 10:39 pm

    I wanna say happy one year anniversary! And my fave look is the green skirt and leather motorcycle jacket looks comfy and yet so chic and edgy

    Congratulations on your one year anniversary!

    I’ve been following your blog for some time now and to see how far you’ve come as a fashionista is definitely inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

    My favorite post is still the one where you showed off your apartment. Every now and then I visit it for ideas and looks for my own place (which is coming along nicely)

    Here’s to many more posts! -Turquoise

    Congrats on your blogiversary! That is such an amazing accomplishment! My favorite post of yours is Goodwill Hunting ( I love this post because it really opened my eyes the wonders of thrifting. Before reading that post I thought that thrift shopping was very taboo and would be a waste of my time. Now, I love thrifting! It saves me soooo much money and I find such awesome and unique pieces… I want to go thrift shopping all the time! My email is

    Hey Monroe!

    I discovered your blog when you were featured on The Fashion Bomb and I’ve read it faithfully ever since. I love your style and your personality, and I love that you are not just another generic fashion blogger wearing clothes that their readers can never afford.

    It was hard to narrow it down to just one, but I think my favorite post is “monroe’s workout plan”

    It’s so funny and cute and shows off your down to earth personality!

    Thank you so much for the opportunity, and I hope I win because I was practically drooling when you got the giraffe necklace from the flea market ๐Ÿ™‚


  32. October 18, 2011 / 2:41 am

    Happy one year anniversary! You’ve changed so much ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. October 18, 2011 / 8:09 pm

    Congrats on your Blogiversary! Dedication to blogging a craft not many can maintain on a regular basis. I’ve fallen off of my own blog in the past but it was for personal reasons.

    Anyway, I’d love to win this necklace. I’m not a big fashionista BUT I’m a huge shoenista and I love accessories. My favorite post has to be the one where I posted how you and I both owned the same pairs of shoes, bought from the same place YET you got a better deal than I got.

    I have many shoes that I’ve yet to wear and I think this necklace would compliment several of them, which by the way, I’ve begun chronicling and blogging about in an attempt to curb my shoe shopping ways.

    Keep up the good work with your blog!

    Happy Anniversary lady! I think by far my best post of you was the vintage knitted dress(believe it was this year) . That dress stole my heart. I’ve been searching for one like it ever since.


  35. October 20, 2011 / 12:02 am

    Congrats!!! I have not been on your blog lately because of school but my favorite is all black everything. I love the color black to me it does not matter what size you are any one can wear it. You can pair black with anything and black on black is so sexy to me.


  36. October 24, 2011 / 8:22 am

    I think that I just did fall in love with you! You are amazing :–)
    My challenging dream is to move in NYC someday (maybe when I win the lottery).. Anyhow, thanks for your blog and good shopping tips!
