Guest Post: Brooke du jour

I am so happy to have Brooke from Brooke du jour on the blog today! Brooke is one of my sorority sisters from SMU, and is quite possibly the sweetest girls I know! She is new to the blogging world but already has an adorable fashion and lifestyle blog with outfit posts that are to.die.for. I am excited that she is going to kick off the holiday gift guide for LLL, which will be a segment every Thursday until Christmas! First off? For your guy. Whether it is your best friend, boy friend, or brother, these are great picks! I love shopping for guys, even though a lot of people complain about how hard they are to buy for, I personally think they are the easiest! Anything you get them, I am sure they will love! 

I got to ask Brooke a few questions, take a peek!

What inspired you to start your own blog?
         I’d been dreaming about Brooke du jour for about a year before I dove in and launched it in August 2012. I have expensive taste, but I also have a knack for finding the very best bargains at Forever21. I hope Brooke du jour demonstrates to college-age girls that fashion can be amazingly affordable.

Who is your favorite designer?
         I’m obsessed with everything and anything designed by Tory Burch. Her designs are simple, beautiful and timeless with a twist. This season, I’m especially craving the suede and leather 797 satchel in pine. It’s such a gorgeous shade of green- perfect for fall! The purse was designed for the opening of Tory’s flagship store. I actually visited the fabulous flagship in NYC over Thanksgiving break. She converted a 1880s townhouse into a glamorous store while still maintaining that home-y feel. Shoes on a bookcase? Now that’s my kind of bookcase!

What do you want to be when you grow up?
         Wow! I can’t believe I’m graduating in a year and a half! The real world doesn’t feel too far off. Ideally, I want to work in a field surrounded by passionate people who love what they do. I’ve enjoyed my coursework in fashion journalism, because it caters to my creativity and has given me the opportunity to meet the coolest people. My dream career would be writing for a magazine like InStyle or Glamour or a brand like Kate Spa6de or J.Crew.
