Bienvenue, Bienvenidos and Welcome to my first post!
I want it to be good... good like the first sip of CocaCola after you decided that you're giving up sodas for Lent. Alright, I did drink one of those mini Cokes, but it was just going to sit in my fridge and stare at me like a sad puppy if I didn't drink it. I'm sure you understand...
I suppose I should tell you a bit about Lizz Aubrey, where I came from and all that goodness. Brace yourself, it's pretty wild. Born on Galveston Island, Texas. Moved to Los Angeles, then Omaha Nebraska (shudder), then Orlando Florida, and finally back to the beautifully eclectic city of Austin Texas. Austin has my heart and that's where it will always stay. What can I say? We 'keep it weird'. My significant other and I currently reside in Dallas. We attended school in San Antonio where I majored in Communication, Studio Art, and Film.
What do I do now? Since I graduated to the present, I've worked in the e-commerce industry, surprisingly enough using each of my degrees. However, my most fervent passions are fashion and art. If I could sew, I'd be a designer. If I had connections, I'd work for Vogue or W Magazine. If I had the money, I'd be creating and making (hopefully) beautiful works of art in my studio. I have many aspirations, you see. Call me a 'dreamer'. My biggest vice? Shoes. If my bank account were prettier, I'd have a closet just for shoes. Floor to ceiling cubbies of shoes, shoes, shoes. The superlative I earned at work? 'Shoe whore'. No joke.
Why am I writing this blog? Well I have a theory that someone somewhere may care what I think, may want to hear what I have to say, may be interested in the same things I am, etc etc. Perhaps not, but blogs are supposed to be cathartic, no? I also think I'm funny sometimes, but I'll let you be the judge of that. On occasion, I'll probably post photographs, talk about fashion trends and updates to my closet, and post images of my artwork. For all intents and purposes, we'll call it a fashion blog. If you're lucky I'll tell a joke, post a video, or plug my latest favorite retailer/film/artist/designer/charitable organization/breed of dog. It'll be like a box of chocolates - you'll just never know what you're going to get (thank you Mr Gump for that little gem).
So saddle up, amigos. It's going to be fun. Fun for me anyway. Happy first day of Spring!
