I am truly honoured being featured on her fabulous blog today!

True Fashionista: Annette

I often hear conversations in the blogosphere that one cannot be a certain age and be a personal style blogger. What does a blogger do once she hits 35? As a personal style blogger who is closer to 40 than 30, I feel it’s even more important to showcase your personal style when you’re older.

About Wardrobe Oxygen

Wardrobe Oxygen was created in 2005 – Alison Gary realized after her experience in personal shopping that there are a few wardrobe basics that seem to work on any woman, be she a size 2 or 22, 21 or 71. Alison has been a size 4 and size 18, and has also seen that through any size, certain wardrobe basics always worked with her frame. From this she created her list of What Every Woman Needs in Her Wardrobe. From this list, she created Wardrobe Oxygen, where she regularly provides style, beauty, and fashion advice. To show that personal style can be achieved regardless of budget, body, or lifestyle, Alison also posts her daily fashion choices and information on why she chose certain brands and how she got her look for less.
