Hey everyone, I guess you all know that I will be making a three part installment of three gorgeous ladies located in different places in the world but they only sum up into one thing, they are the BEST and my FAVORITES. Of course I would have not chosen them if they do not possess something that I like. As you all know, I am not choosing my favorite blog awards because they are my friends or what so ever, I always try to manage to check on their sites and look for something different, whether the layout of their site? Or how they dress to rock that look. I love blogs that does not only talks about fashion, but how they incorporate something as REAL and honest as they can be in every posts and that being said, makes me feel that I am part of their world also, and not a distant fan who cannot do anything but look up to that person. I want to know and feel that they are also real human beings who loves to blog like me.
My second Favorite Blog Award goes to someone who is as sweet as me. She maybe presented as a delicate soft and sumptuous cake with the most exquisite design of chocolates and the best part is the cherry on top of it. A cake that looks delectable in the outside is as sweet and heavenly in the inside. That is what I call a beauty that came from heavens. She dresses in the most grand way but does not carry the tag “OVER THE TOP” because with her elegance and her beauty it can carry anything that goes along with it. She smiles like a sweet 16, but she graces and gives out point of views as a 25 year old- witty person. You can never deny that at a certain glance at her, you would be stunned by her amazing smile.
She experiments with fashion but never goes out of style. She expresses her own style in different ways but mostly I love how she carries vintage in her looks. Mostly the dresses she wears are combined with great color combination that does not only complement her flawless and angelic skin but it creates a great blast of what we call ELEGANCE. Believe it or not she has carrying it her by nature. She can parade to you in a lot of different ways and with that being said she is not only the cherry on top of a cake but she is the sweet creamy moisture inside the cake that fills your self with glory and content.
Let me introduce to you the only cherry in my list. Cherie from the Parade of Dresses, not only did I used her name as part of her introduction but believe it or not, once you see her style you will never go back to the other side anymore. You will get stunned by her beauty and her radiant smile. I was very happy when she answered back my email, despite of her busy schedule I am still proud to feature her in my Favorite Blog Award lists. Read more about my interview with her.
