Bows and hearts.

White Bow Vintage Blouse, Blue thrifted denim shorts, Brown thrifted belt, Black F21 sheer heart tights, Light gray F21 oxfords, Brown thrifted Nine West bag.

The title sounds very valentine's day-ish haha, but bows and hearts are integral to my outfit here.  I guess you could say I was feeling very girly today, but in my way, an untraditional kind of girly, with shorts instead of skirts.  Wow, just noticed, this is my first post for 2011!  Past few days have been a bit hectic with work, a reason for my short absence.  Anyways, onto happier things!  I really am so amazed as to how many of you have been visiting my blog, I really appreciate it lovelies.  From the bottom of my heart (sorry for my sappy self :p), I really am thankful for all of you who have stayed with me since the beginning and to new followers -- you've opened so many opportunities for me.

Wanted to give some updates on to what's happening now in the blogger atmosphere :).  I recently did a guest post on the stylish and beautiful Chelsea of Zipped Blog, which was posted on Monday.  Give it a visit and some supportive love to Chelsea, her blog is amazing.  

Just this past weekend, Inspirafashion has hit almost 300 followers!! I'm so excited! And to kick off the new year, am opening my first online blog shop of items from my closet! :)  It's in the works at the moment, but as of now, there are a few items up for sale.  To create incentive to visit my new shop, wanted to create an interactive (and much-needed) giveaway for reaching 300 followers.  Here are the rules:
2) Follow my Blog Shop "Shop Inspirafashion's Closet" on either Google Friend Connect or Blog Lovin'.
3) Choose from any of the available items on the site (currently there are three items).
4) Leave a comment on the item on the blog of which one you would loove to have for the giveaway -- for free!
5) In the comment, leave your name, email, and whether you've followed on Google Friend Connect or Blog Lovin'.
Update: This giveaway is open to both domestic (US) and international readers :).
This giveaway will be ending on this Sunday, 1/09, at 12am midnight PST.  Once the giveaway is over, the winner will be chosen at random on the following Monday, 1/10.  The items on Shop Inspirafashion's Closet will be updated with prices and will officially be up for sale including more items being added.

And that's it! :), I hope you enjoy the shop, it will be regularly updated with new items, so be sure to come back often :).  I hope you all have had an amazing week so far!  And thank you once again for supporting me, it really means a lot.  Keep inspiring beautifuls!
