Welcome to the very first { bug miscellany } Virtual Fashion Show! 

Hop into your front row seat, as we watch some seriously stylish bloggers strut their stuff on the digital runway.
( Be sure to check out their blogs, too  -- each and every one is on my "must read" list. )

{ jess from the mundane adventures of miss jess }

"I took this photo for a We Love Colors shoot, and I love the outfit. Layering, bright tights, big boots, wide belts... LOVE!" - jess


{ victoria from the moss garden }

"I tend to dress a little preppier than your average student and I like to wear things that are clean-cut, not too frilly or fancy, and most of my clothes are in blues or greens with a lot of brown leather. My sweater is from Roots, jeans from American Eagle, and riding-style boots by Aldo. This is pretty much what I'd wear on an average day to class, probably accessorized with some sort of animal-themed jewelry. :)" - victoria


{ cristie from the citybirds nest }

"i think i am pretty eclectic when it comes to personal style but i LOVE pattern and color and i am not afraid to wear bold patterns. i like a lot of styles from preppy, hippie, mod to grunge. i think the only consistent is that i love vintage so i always try to add a bit of a retro vibe to all my outfits from either adding jewelry or actually wearing a vintage piece." - cristie


"This skirt is my latest thrifting find. I paid less than $3 for it and it's REVERSIBLE!!! So, if you haven't already done the math, that's $1.50 per skirt. awe.some." - molly

{ monica from the captain's photolog }
"I have always been interested in fashion, but never really applied it to myself until recently. I've worked hard and shed some lbs so am now playing around with what my personal style even is. I think I've found it, but I'm still learning. I used to live in tshirts, jeans and hoodies but have since learned that a cardigan is a grown up version of a hoodie. also dresses are more awesome than I thought since they take no time to put on and POOF an outfit/look is born. My first priority is always comfort, but I now know that doesn't mean I have to look like a slob/college kid." - monica

{ shery from nevertheless }

" I love white!
Cropped white blazer – Dotti
White lace strapless dress with blush coloured lining – Dotti
Gold and blush bangles - Gloss" - sheryl


{ stacey (and baby Z) from design addict mom }

"We were at an annual Kentucky Derby party. The hat is by nine west and the dress is a brand called New Directions that i purchased at Belk. Baby Z is outfitted in Ralph Lauren baby(it's my favourite brand to shop for clothes for him). He's always my escort/companion everywhere i go and he always steals the show:-). I think i picked up the fashion jewelry at TJMaxx." - stacey

{ moi from here }

I'd like to say I have very "me" look, but mostly I'm a hodge podge.  I like retro influences, color (!), patterns, little dresses, big boots, high heels and statement jewelry.
This outfit is my $10 H&M cardi, Tucker for Target dress, belt from Jujubes (the best cheap clothes in seattle), H&M tights and Banana Republic boots circa 2002.  I felt pretty great in this get up (altho you can't tell from the photo - me no likee having picture taken!).

A hugebungous, ginormous THANK YOU to all the lovely bloggers who participated!  I had a lot of fun, and I hope you all did too.  And if you missed out this time, never fear!  We'll do this again soon.

{ now c'mon, tell me:  How freakin' stylish are all these awesome bloggers?! }

Psssst! Check out LittleGrayFox for the results of her Crafty Challenge.  There's always some fun stuff going on over there.

    What a great idea! I agree with everyone that you really should do it again.

    I'd like to think I'd participate, but I'm terrible at participating in things, especially photos! Looks like so much fun though!

    How did everyone decide on their outfits they wanted to share?

    Love the blog love here! I would have to say I adore Cristie's style the most! For my personal taste that is. But all these lovely ladies rock their own style.
