style us

my husband has a minor infatuation with HVAC systems.  i get really excited about clothes and i love the art of affordable fashion and getting dressed.  don't even get me started on my love for boots.  i'm a huge bargain hunter.  if i didn't find it on sale, you probably won't find it on here.  i am obsessed with dresses and i rarely pay more than $30 for one.  wait for the sales.  find the promos online.  

i decided to document what i wear from day to day.  i told the hubs whenever he's ready, he can document our sexy duct work.  until then...
