My name is.. Angela Deaton (Lady Lipstick)
I live....in the blazing hot city of Houston, Texas where there is no winter just summer, summer, one day of fall, then summer again. I just want to wear my peacoat for longer than one day, is that too much to ask?
My daily grind is... Part-time hairstylist, Full-time blogger, Fashion Writer, and Shopaholic.
I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Houston in Consumer Science and Merchandising (literally it is a degree in the science of shopping, no lie). After graduating, I dove into the fashion industry working for retailers such as Abercrombie & Fitch (where I picked up my amazing and wonderful husband) and Bebe. After my run in retail, I went to work for an oil and gas company for the next 4 years doing the corporate grind. When I couldn't take the staleness of being in a cubicle and wearing conservative office attire (SO NOT MY SCENE), I decided to take the plunge and get my cosmetology license! I have been doing hair for two years now and it is a wonderful part-time creative outlet for me. The rest of my time is spent writing about fashion and of course pumping this blog with all of my knowledge, ideas, and opinions on fashion! I feel so incredibly blessed to have this life and the extremely supportive husband I get to share it with.
Blogging all started when...... I finally decided to join the blogging community this past summer (2010) without realizing there was an entire fashion blogging community! I feel like I have completely hit the jackpot on connecting with all of the fashion lovers of the world. I am so immensely inspired everyday by many different blogger's personal style blogs and I am so excited to know that I inspire even one person a day.
My Style is......many different styles, but if I have to narrow it down to three I would say glam rock, funky, with a bit of bohemian mixed in.
I enjoy....going to movies with my husband (we literally go every single weekend), chilling with my dogs (Frank and Foxy), hanging with my cousin (and my photographer), reading (mostly fashion mags), blogging, doing hair, watching TV such as How I Met Your Mother, Dexter and Tosh.0, shopping (online and at the mall), and just being a girly girl!
My favorite designers are... Chanel, D&G, Betsey Johnson, David Peck, Dior
My favorite places to shop are... American Apparel, vintage online and stores, Free People, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Topshop, and H&M.
My dream job would be....to write for Vogue magazine.
