Getting to Know You: Amazingly Awkward Amy

Hello Everyone! I’m Amy from Amazingly Awkward Amy and I get to guest blog here at Blissful and Domestic on my Birthday!!!!!!Today I am 24 years young but sometimes I feel 12 and sometimes I feel 40. I’ve been happily married for one year to a man who loves me more than I can possibly say. He just finished building me our first house with his blood, sweat and a few of my tears.

I love weddings, dancing, the color pink, acting a fool, Target, H&M, family, green peppers, and a little dog named Rosie. Rosie is the apple of my eye (maybe that’s because we don’t have any babies yet.)

Marisa Lynch from New Dress A Day gave me the courage and the push to learn how to sew. Once my godmother graciously taught me how to sew I was pretty much unstoppable. All I do is thrift. I couldn’t even tell you the last time I went to a regular department store. Probably somewhere to buy underwear because thrift stores don’t have the greatest selection of undergarments. (Kidding)

Before sewing I had no fashion sense at all but after I started thrifting I realized my potential. I just have my own style. Upcycling has given me the courage to wear colors and outfits I had never considered wearing before and for that I am thankful.

I have always hated shopping because things just aren’t made for me. I loathe department stores and the snoty people who work there, the rude other shoppers, and waiting in line to buy things that don’t fit me at all. I wouldn’t call my size a stick and I sure the hell wouldn’t call myself chunky, I like the word voluptuous. My hero’s in life include Elvira mistress of the dark, Dolly Parton, and Christina Hendricks. Real women with real curves. Well I wouldn’t really call Dolly Parton real. She’s so full of plastic when she dies she won’t be able to be cremated because she would just melt. But you get the idea.
