A Little Bit About Me

I jumped right into fashion blogging and as I did, I realized that I didn’t really say anything about me.  Yes, I have a tab that talks about me, but that isn’t who I am completely.

So here is a little bit about the Alicia of Fashion By Alicia.

I grew up in a small town in West Virginia.  Have you ever seen the movie The Mothman Prophecies?  The movie is based on my hometown, Point Pleasant, West Virginia.  The town now has a Mothman Festival, Mothman Pagent, and a Mothman statute.  Growing up in West Virginia and on a farm has made me really appreciate everything.  I remember working on the farm from a young age.  I even showed cattle through 4-H.  

 Once I graduated high school I got the heck out of West Virginia.  I went to the University of Miami for undergrad.  Image a small town girl going to Miami, Florida.  Wow, what a change that was.  I went from the girl who wore jeans and a t-shirt to the girl who wore skirts and heels to class.  I really don’t know how my legs handled it.  I would go out so many days a week and still maintain good grades.  After spending four years in Florida, I knew I couldn’t go back to West Virginia.  So I applied for law schools in Florida and eventually ended up in Jacksonville, Florida.

I thought Jacksonville would be a lot like Miami.  But I was wrong.  Jacksonville is a laid back big city.  Instead of wearing club attire out, I can wear fun sun dresses and sandals.  Jacksonville is now my home. I met my husband, J, during my second year of law school and we have been inseparable since.

I wish I had a fabulous story how J and I met.  I use to tell people that we met at the grocery store but then the real story came out.  J and I met through Yahoo personals.  When I read his profile, I felt like he had potential, but as I got to know him I knew he was the one.  

 J and I were married on November 7, 2009 in St. Augustine, Florida on the beach.  We have no children, unless Sophie Bell our black lab counts.  I treat her like a child and she is a big part of my life. 

 I am a girl who loves fashion mostly shoes and handbags (thus the fashion blog), but I also love sports.  I know men’s college basketball probably better than most men.  I love the sport and my favorite time of year is March Madness.  Go Duke!

In the evening you will not find me at the club like I did in Miami, but on the couch with my husband watching some of my favorite shows.  My favorite show is Glee.  I am totally a Gleek.  But I also love NCIS and Criminal Minds.  Thanks to Netflix I am now addicted to Dexter.

So that is my life in a nutshell.  Now that you know a little more about me follow me on Twitter and Facebook
