Haute Khuuture turns 1 today!!!Friday, April 15, 2011
This time last year I was fresh off the show, back from New York, and seemingly in limbo until I mustered up the verve to finally commit to Haute Khuuture's very first post. A year before that I had never even heard of a fashion blog, hadn't a clue what blogging entailed, and don't even get me started on RSS feeds and followers (to which I must admit I still understand very little of). Yet here we are, 365 days, 29,800+ views, 272 entries, and hundreds of newfound friends later...I am one happy-go-lucky Haute Khuuturier :D
It never started as a numbers game, but looking back and seeing how much I've accomplished in so little time, I'm proud to claim ownership of one of THE BEST PROJECTS I've executed to date. And to THANK YOU ALL so very much for being there from day one, two, ten, or day 365, I'm hosting my very first giveaway where you can win the clothes off my back and some fun little trinkets that go along with it.
