Wear to Where? Blog Tour | Introduction

Nov 9, 2015

Once upon a time, a sewer and a non-sewer had an idea. It was mostly the sewer’s idea. What if you did a fashion post where you had a specific place or event you were dressing for, like “what would you wear to a brewery,” because let’s face it, both the sewer and the non-sewer are kind of lushes.

The sewer said, “Let’s pick a few other prompts and open it up for other sewers and fashiony types.” The non-sewer was all about this. Somehow, 35 other bloggers thought the idea was just so awesome too. Thus, Wear to Where? was born.

You’ve probably been here before, so I don’t need to introduce myself…or explain my Obsessive Sewing Habits to you all.  But the other half of the tour guiding for Wear to Where? is Angelica: my partner in crime (on this tour and other things in life), and blogger over at Gardening in High Heels.  She’s awesome, stylish, sweet, spunky, and adorable.  All good things, all good things.  Please take some time to read through her blog if you haven’t already!

Now back to the #WearToWhereTour…

Wear to Where’s goal is to collide two worlds: Fashion and Sewing. We have two (!!) full weeks of people who sew their own clothes and people who style clothes paired up in a head-to-head battle highlighting the places each blogger would wear their style.

We’d love for you to join in the fun. Each day, Angelica and I will reveal the bloggers of the day, but if you want to play along and link up your own look, here is where you’ll wear each outfit.
