Last August I finally joined Instagram and in doing so I learned a lot about hashtags and unfamiliar terms like "flat lay". (In case you're in the dark like I was, a "flat lay" is basically an outfit post with clothing laid out on a flat surface, usually a white board, to highlight the individual pieces of clothing or accessories.) Well, in my opinion, no one does the "flat lay" better than Lisa of Respect the Shoes. Her outfit ideas are pure inspiration and always on point. So I just had to steal this one look I'm showcasing below with a black and white striped shirt and green J. Crew lace skirt. I even copied the idea of adding a pin for a bit of vintage flare. The vintage fan pin I am wearing is from the Pasadena Flea market, which is held every month in the Rose Bowl stadium in the lovely city of Pasadena, California. I tried to haggle for it, but due to my non-confrontational nature this proved to be largely unsuccessful. I suppose even if the whole pin idea wasn't my own, at least the story behind it is!
Welcome to Hello Katie Girl's blog. It amazes me that anyone would bother to read this, but as Andy Warhol famously said, everyone will have his or her 15 minutes of fame. While I'm not looking for fame, I hope you will enjoy my various interests. I'm just a girl who loves dogs, food, and fashion. I also like to cook, admire art and explore the hidden treasures of Los Angeles. It might sound like a random combination, but I'm sort of a random person!
