This really does mean a lot. You guys have really supported me and I hope to deliver some REALLY helpful inspiration throughout 2012.
Alexandria – I’ll be working on it.

This is so beautiful. Such an inspiring videos and thoughtful words. It’s great to hear the real experiences of a blogger and someone who took the risk to dedicate herself to blogging fully. I hope to have your courage soon.
Congrats on a terrific year! Thanks for sharing itself with us.
You are such an inspiration. May the coming year bring you many more blessings ; )http://www.poolovesboo.blogspot.com
Karen, congratulations on following your dreams. Your blog is the first fashion blog that I found and let me tell you, I compare all others to yours. You are a beautiful person inside and out and that is one of the reasons why I think you have been successful…you are real and it oozes out of your blog. Keep doing what you love and we will continue to wait with bated breath until your next post.
Love ya and hope to run into in New York one day soon, by way of Atlanta, lol.Sheila
<3 love this video, congrats on your blogger success!
I love the blogging world its really opened up my mind wether good or bad experiences i always remember to channel all my hard work as a blogger into positive energy!
happy new year
Karen, you are honestly such an inspiration to me! I wish you all the success in the world because you deserve it! <3
Love the video Karen, I am always amazed out how humble you are. I read a lot of fashion blogs and while some of the girls may take pretty pictures and work hard at what they do only a few of them comes off as gracious and humble as you (not to say that they aren’t). You really have opened up my eyes to how beautiful Vintage is as a style aesthetic. While I don’t wear vintage I find that it is very beautiful and I really do enjoy what you do here and how you present it. I am looking forward to 2012 and more posts from you and here is to another successful year.
this video was great! youre so amazing and inspiring, i wish you nothing but the best for 2012 and the many years to come 😀
Great video. I loved hearing from you first person. I’m so happy that you were able to follow your heart and do what you love. You are such a talented blogger. Here’s to an amazing 2012 [cheers]! 🙂
You really are a true inspiration to other bloggers out there! Looking forward to even more fabulous posts in 2012. Mandeep x
I feel like there are so many well-known bloggers out there who lost their identity along the way. I feel like a lot of bloggers (and even actors, artists, etc.) do what they do only because they want to become more and more famous. BUT, just when I thought your blog showed that you are not like that, this video has said more than a thousand words of confirmation. I love how down to earth you are and how you really take out the time to thank your readers. Keep doing the same, because the person that lies beneath all the clothes and make up will be the person who will keep bringing you further recognition in the industry.:)
WOW!This is the best 2011 recap I’ve seen!So inspirational to all of us to never stop chasing our dreams!xxB.
What an amazing video, Karen! Your blog is truly inspiring and hearing your thoughts has made my experience with reading your blog (religiosuly) that much better. Best of luck to you in 2012 and I hope to run into you at New York Fashion Week.
That is amazing! Thank you for that Karen!!!
you are really inspiring!love that I am following you.Have an amazing year.Much love.x
Your voice is wonderful. Perhaps you’ll include it in your posts more often?
Hey Karen – long time follower although I don’t comment as often as I should! Love the vid and big THANK YOU back at ya! I love sitting down and flicking down through your posts, not that I’m any expert on blogging but I can definitely see how much you have grown over the last year and of the addition of your street style blog…..Keep up the great work 2012 is your oyster 😉 x
Emma – thank you. I’m glad to hear you like my posts. Being ‘in it’ it’s often hard to see the blog from the eyes of outsiders so the feedback from you and everyone means a lot.
Princessglee – I think I record like I have a cold lol! But regardless, yes, I will be doing it more this year.
ChiTown Fashionista – thank you and yes def say hi if you see me.
Li – wow. no words….
Everyone it’s really good to hear you talking to me so directly as I have with you on this video. I wanted to go beyond the usual recap of outfits (even though I did that) and actually show something more meaningful.
Thank you for the support and for letting me know how you have felt about the blog and me.
Exactly one year ago, I was first introduced to your blogamazing blog!, thank you, I saw a fashion and style differently! ..you are a professional!Greetings from Russia, Moscow
I’ve been a fan and follower since the mua days. So happy to see how far you’ve grown. Its amazing and inspiring.
Just a thought but have you been approached to create a book about your style, vintage finds and photography? I would totally buy a glossy pictureesq coffeetable style book of yours.
I’ve been following your blog pretty religiously for the past few years and I have to thank you for staying so true to yourself and doing what you love. You’ve been an inspiration to me from the get go. I especially love seeing a person of color do so well in the blogging world. That’s actually one of the reasons why I started really following your blog, since at the time you were one of the few out there, but not why I stayed. I stayed because your style is unique and very you and your “voice” comes across in every post.
This video was great and I hope to see more like it. Good luck in the coming year… I’ll be here rooting for you. 🙂
Hi Karen!Love your blog, your such an inspiration! I would like to get in touch with you, Im having a difficult time emailing you thru this site. I wanted to tell you about my mom’s vintage store in Pennsylvania. Before she downsizes and moves south you have to check it out! It’s amazing! I have another idea as far as collaborating on a video too! Please email me if you see this!Thanks!Amberamberleeonline@yahoo.com

WOOOW…your voice, it’s nice! 🙂I loove your ring plate thing 😀 It seems nyc ppl are cool to stop and ask where did u get that shoe from or whatever, than cali people. O.oI would always ask someone or compliment them on what they are wearing, but they always look at me in a weird way. O.o
Love the video though. 🙂 I love your neon nail color ♥
