SUILTSOY won it's first award!

Where do I even start? Remember when I found out last week that I had been nominated in Seattle Weekly's Best of the Web 2010 poll? Remember how excited I was?

This is even better! As it turns out, I WON! Yesterday the winners were announced (here) and SUILTSOY was named the 'Best Online Presence - Fashion/Clothing' in Seattle!

I don't want to get all misty-eyed and start waxing emotional about how much this means to me and how grateful I am and how seriously-so-thrilled-I-could-just-squeal I am ... but believe me, it's all there.

I will say though, there was a time not that long ago when I didn't tell many people about this little blog of mine. It wasn't that I was embarrassed, necessarily, but definitely feared I'd be pegged as silly, shallow, materialistic, vain ... the usual negatives associated with fashion-minded folk. It took me a while to really own this thing.

But here I am, owning it and loving every second of it, thanks to the encouragement and support of my family and friends (and their friends, and their friends' friends).

I'm a loud, proud, (award-winning!) fashion blogger.

... Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you ...

  2. Congrats on yet another milepost on your road to fame and, perhaps, fortune. Love your writing style, fresh, amusing and not full of itself. Do fashionistas secretly wear gray sweatpants at home, when no one is looking?
