Hi Beautifuls!  HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!  (esp to all the super stylish mommy bloggers out there!! you're all so inspiring!) I had such a fun mother's day this year, although I celebrated it early with my mommy, I treated her out to her fave thrift store, Goodwill (we both love thrifting) -- and she definitely was the first to show me actually what "thrifting" was.  We found so many items for only $40!  Check out my very first haul video on my Youtube channel below.
I found this amazing L.E.I. jean jacket with a pretty leopard collar, so unique.  Man, I still remember wearing L.E.I. jeans back in middle school! ;P Who knew i'd wear them again? haha. And for the title of this post, I always get writer's block..I wanted to put the words "leopard" and "red" together..and came up with that sentence lol.
And this really has to be one of my most rocker-esque type outfits ever, yep I can be tough at times too!! lol
And got my new Romwe red tights, I love them!!  K, really now, I've dealt with lots and lots of diff types of tights, and their tights have like noo snagging whatsoever, which is super important for me, being a "tight connoisseur" haha jk, but i do wear tights a lot!  And i love how they're the first pair of colored tights i own! and they're my fave kind, sheer! :)
As said before, I've started an official Facebook page for my blog! :)  And just looking back at how this blog has started, really gets me all emotional (yes, this blog is like my baby).  I started out on Chictopia and moved on to here, but will save that story for later :); I just want to say a big thank you to all of you beautifuls!!
Onto a new chapter for my blog, would loove if you would give some likin' (aand lovin') to Inspirafashion's official facebook page! :)

Talk to you sooon lovelies! t-minus 3 days until I'm done with school then freeedom and SUMMAA time, fun in the sun! ;).

<3, Kathleen.
