Oh The Flossy Flossy- Fashion, Bling, and Other Girly Things

Hello friends in fashion! It's that time of the month when I share with you one of my favorite blogs! At this point, I have no idea how I found this trendy lady, but I am sure glad I did! 
Meet Tori, the style goddess behind the blog Fashion, Bling, and Other Girly Things!  She is fabulous, beautiful, and has style for days! Not to mention, she rocks the hippie headband like it's her job (totally envious!) 
Read below to find out more about this fab girl! 

Tori, I am a huge fan of fashion, bling, and other girly things! What a coincidence, that's the name of your blog! Where did you come up with such a great name?

Tori: Omgsh, honestly, the name for me was the hardest part. I feel like it is the first thing that people hear and see and I wanted it to not only stand out, but describe a little of who I am. Fashion, Bling, and Other Girly Things just kind of came to me and stuck--I liked it because it doesn't limit me to only fashion--even though that is the main focus of my blog. And, anyone that knows me, know that I love ANYTHING that has some sparkle and bling!

If you could steal any celebrity's wardrobe who would it be and why?

Tori: This may be cliche, but I think it would totally be Olivia Palermo. She is always stunning, put together, and chic! She is actually a little more on the subtle side than my actual wardrobe--but somehow she makes it so special--I am always drooling over her looks.

What is your favorite thing about summer?

Tori: The hot weather! I live in Ohio--so good warm weather doesn't come around very often. We get about two and half months of sunshine and I totally live for it. I love to be by the pool and getting a tan!

How long does it take for you to complete one blog post from start to finish? 

Tori: For an outfit post it takes me around a 1/2 hour to shoot the look and then another 45 minutes to an hour to write the post and create links to products. The process has gotten faster for me the longer I have been blogging which is nice--but I always try to make sure I take my time and post quality content--no rushing!

What are your 3 favorite stores to shop in and why?

Tori: 1. Forever 21- for all my trendy items that I will most likely only wear for the season and I don't want to spend too much money on them.
2. The Limited- for my work wardrobe, which is business casual.
3.  J. Crew- for my staples and casual wear--although I am always buying things there when they are on sale :)

What is your favorite thing about being a fashion blogger? 

Tori: I love being part of a fun community. I have seriously gotten to know some of the best ladies who are so supportive and have taught me so much about not only blogging, but about myself. I also love sharing my personal style and helping others find their own style as well. I want women to realize their beauty inside and out. We are all so different, but I truly believe fashion is for every woman no matter her shape, size, and budget--and I want to share that with the world.

What is one thing your readers would be surprised to learn about you?

Tori: I am super uncomfortable in front of the camera! That is the hardest part for me and being a blogger--love wearing the clothes, but feel so silly posing for the pictures. I think a lot of bloggers struggle with this, but I am getting better with it as time goes by!

What are your three favorite blogged looks so far and why?
{1} {2} {3} 
1. Sportin' in Florals- This is one of my favorites because it is a little more edgy than I would normally go for--but I felt kinda badass and I think the florals still gave it a feminine touch!
2.  Infinity Scarf and Hippie Headbands This look is awesome because it started my LOVE of the hippie headband trend. At first, I hated it on myself--well now I wear them all the time--its a full blown obsession ha!
3. Wifey TeeThis look is on the top of my list because it is so very true to my everyday style. I love pink, sunnies, and piling on as much bling as possible!

Isn't Tori just fabulous?!?! I hope you enjoyed getting to know my girl a little bit better! I did!
