My name is Kristine, I live in New Mexico in a gorgeous mountain town, which is a dream come true! I love everyday fashion and I believe that one does not have to spend much money to look like a million bucks. I started this blog to see what would come about from it and to have fun!
I am currently working in outpatient pediatric occupational therapy and applying to get into graduate school for my MOT (crossing fingers). I received my bachelor's degree in teaching PE and Health but quickly learned that was not my passion. So back to school I went to obtain my dream of becoming an OT and I have to say I LOVE my new area of work!
I grew up a tomboy all though elementary school, middle school and high school. I always enjoyed looking at clothing and was envious of people who knew how to put outfits together. When I was in college, I started looking at clothing more and was ready to start experimenting with fashion. I had finally started putting work into my everyday style when I started getting sick. I had undiagnosed hypothyroidism for a little over three years before I finally found out what was wrong with me. During this time I gained 60lbs and didn't feel like I was alive (walked around in a fog). It was very depressing for me..suddenly I could not even fit into the clothes I adored and went back to t-shirts and sweats. Once diagnosed, I received the help and supplements I needed for normal thyroid function. Soon after I started taking my supplements, I quickly dropped the 60lbs I had gained and regained my energy as well. I am now back to my normal body and mind and have experimented with fashion for about 2 years now. A year ago or so, it clicked for me....I started looking at my wardrobe as an art project and practiced putting new outfits together. Being able to put an outfit together comes with time and practice, it is not something that happens overnight.
Why "Puggle Wears Prada"?
Well, It came about one day when I was discussing starting a blog with my husband. We were brainstorming and trying to come up with unique names for my blog, when out of no where he says..."how about Puggle Wears Prada?!" I said no at first, but the more I thought about it the more I liked it.
Who is the puggle?
The face of Puggle Wears Prada is my 5 year old puggle Chloe...(with our Boston Terrier, Zoey)
Thanks for stopping by Puggle Wears Prada! I hope you enjoy my blog. Feel free to leave me a comment.
