Flashes of Style Q&A!

18 February 2011















First of all, this is one of my new favorite outfits ever! It is so
comfy, and I feel so feminine in it even though it is not a dress.
Which is usually tough for me. I basically cannot take this
soft peter pan collar off!

Okay onto the bigger news. Below
is my first vlog ever. Is it vlog or v-log? I don't even know.
Anyways, I hope you all enjoy it! It's obvious that I was
a little nervous to make it, but I think it turned out okay.
I was not able to answer all of the questions, because I only
answered a few and the video is already almost ten minutes!
I really did not want to bore you all, so I will answer the other
questions in writing in my next post. Enjoy!

OH my you're even cuter in video than in pictures. This was fun to watch. My boyfriend actually takes details pictures, he got over excited today about my shoes and took like 5 or 6 lol :) I think it helps that he actually reads my blog and can evaluate what's best and not. So make your boyfriend read yours hahah!
PS. That's another great look up there!

Vicky said...

Gorgeous outfit! And your video is so cute! You have such a lovely voice, and I love that you love The Beatles x

Mich said...

Great post! Love that outfit and the video was so cute!! You should do a video of a closet tour and maybe one on how you do your hair/ your favorite products etc.

Becky-May said...

Bonnie you are adorable! I love when bloggers vlog because it's a great way to put a voice to the pretty face we always see. I've done a couple of Q+A vlogs but its been awhile since my last one...you've inspired me to do another one soon!

amazing hair and make up!

Sydney, The Rabbit-Hearted Girl said...

oh this was such a cute vlog, haha! i'm so nervous to do one, i think i'd be so awkward! but you weren't awkward at all!

anyway, you said your parents live close to denton, and i was just wondering where you're from. i live in frisco, so that's kind of close to denton as well.

sorry if this comment comes across as creepy? i'm not trying to be! :)

I don't know if my previous comment worked because my computer spazzed hardcore aha. but i'll try to recreate what I just said.

I ADORE your top. Peter Pan collars and polka dots are my favorite so that's the cutest top i've ever seen! <3

And your video was so cute! You have such a sweet speaking voice. I hate videos because I'm super awkward when I try to talk into a camera haha. But I watched the whole thing and you should definitely post more vlogs or v logs or whatever they're called. =)

Natalie said...

Oh god, Bonnie, completely ignore whatever anonymous ignoramus wrote that comment before me, cause they have no clue what they're talking about.

I really love this outfit too! The top and sweater and bag and just everything are so great. :) And yaaay, I thought your first vlog was so wonderful! You didn't seem too nervous to me and definitely answered all of the questions well. It's really awesome seeing you in video form for the firs time. :D

Sarah said...

those sunglasses are amazing!

Marisa Violeta said...

I just loved your video, you're really adorable and nice and I'm so glad you like Beach House ahah.

Greer said...

I loved the video so much! :D

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

I used to call it a v-log until I heard people calling it vlog. I really love your peter pan collared shirt in this entry. you look lovely.

just keep doing what you do in your blogs. It would be fun to see you dance even if it is corny as can be.

haha that's so funny about your boyfriend not enjoying taking the photos. My husband helps once in a while but he's into fashion and took photography in high school for two years, so it works out for me.

You do look taller with those heels on. I wouldn't have thought you were only 5'4". I'm 5 inches taller than you, does that make me an amazon? You are grown up! yey for your college 22-yr old life. If it makes you feel better I was pregnant with my first son at 22 (I got married at 20).

I love learning how couples meet. how sweet. awww. melt melt!
I adore The Beatles, Kinks, Donovan, and Bob Dylan! I remember when Wilco came out but I haven't listened to them since about 2005 or something.

I'm a patient person but I also love V-logs. No problem on watching it all.

Violetta E. said...

u`re amazing!

Jade said...

Amanda, The Upside of Wonder said...

Haha, this is such a great video. You are such a cutie! You have the same mannerisms as you do in your photos, I love it.

My boyfriend takes my photos half the time and I think he likes it. Or he just like thinking that he is an awesome photographer. I tend to bribe him to do it though, but promising to go get slushies or something after. Works good for me!

christie said...

loved your first vlog!! it was great (and yes i watched it to the end). I can't believe you 5'4. Thats the same height as me - i'll def be trying out that tip about leaving a bit of a gap between your shoes and the end of the picture.

xx

have a fab day

Emma (Scrapbook de la Emma) said...

loving that blouse, and you're so cute bonnie, i loved the video! vlogs are always so fun! my boyf takes my photo's, he does find it a bit silly when im like take it this way, can you take a close up of the ribbon in my hair etc. but he does it anyway :) hehe. if i had a good friend around all the time though i'd prob ask them often as girls seem to a bit more in tune with the whole idea of an 'outfit shot' :) xo

kate maggie said...

Oh Bonnie you are seriously the sweetest! I loved everything about this post and video! Your hair is so amazing...I may need to copy your idea about doing a video blog with questions! I have been dreading doing a vlog...but I think the time has come!! xoxo

Michelle Edmonds said...

Love your blog, love your style. Just found it after searching for Arkansas blogs, since I just moved here!

PS- if you want to look tall in your photos, have the photographer take the photo from a downward angle, looking up at you. Not TOO downward, otherwise you'll look like a giant :)

Michaela said...

I loved this post, it was great to watch! Another lovely outfit too!

Aw, you are too cute! I adore your style and it's great to get an insight into your life as well as your trick to making yourself look so tall - I may try that! Keep it up :) Also, a belated congrats for being featured on WhoWhatWear! x

Béracha said...

so nice to actually see you talking, you're so cute!

bestie said...

That was a really cute video! I loved watching it - you are so inspiring! Well I kind of thought you were like 19 0r 20.. or even younger. Heeh. Also, I can totally relate with the boyfriend thing! I'm so jealous of bloggers who have boyfriends/husbands that are super willing to take outfit photos, because mine sure isn't! Like he's more embarrassed about taking photos in public more than I am. Haha oh well. (:

You are lovely Bonnie! xx

Samantha said...

I love all the different music you used - very original! It's fun seeing vlogs from bloggers because you never think about their voices but inevitably they're different from what you'd think! Do another one soon. :-)

I have three questions:
What are you studying?
What do you want to do after College?
When your hair is down does it just naturally look perfect or do you style it? If you style it, I need to know how! :D

Your blog is my bible :) I always look at it before I go out shopping.

Inés Luján said...

i really love your style..i follow you!

Sara said...

Loressa said...

I absolutely love your blog! You are definitely a huge style inspiration for me! My boyfriend also hates taking photos of me, he gets so irritated, and he is seriously the sweetest man alive...I was beginning to get jealous over all the boyfriends taking the pics...so it's refreshing to know I'm not the only one. Keep inspiring!!!
