Last week the Queen City Style turned one! This has been one of the best things ever to happen for me. I submitted this story to Lucky Magazine, they ran it (thank you Lucky!!), and that was all the validation I could ask for; somebody out there was interested in what I had to share. After seeing the printed article, I woke up the next morning and decided I would write a blog. I can't tell you how much joy this have brought me. I have met some of the nicest people; fellow bloggers, brand consultants, designers, boutique owners, stylists, industry people both afar and in my own community. I've got a little business going here. Awesome things have spawned from this blog. I am now working as a wardrobe consultant/personal stylist. I've recently helped facilitate, along with three other small business owners, a new philanthropic effort here in the Queen City, Warm Charlotte. I am so, so grateful for all of these opportunities. the Queen City Style has become my path for creativity, fun and pursuing my passion....Finally, at the age of 35! Hello! This is me! Yippee!! Thank you to each and every one of you for walking with me through this journey over the past year. Thank you for reading, and thank you for your feedback. Thank you for accepting me, introducing me to great people and opportunities, helping me and supporting me. You know who you are. If you are reading this, I am talking to you.
With all my heart! -Whitley
