This is a public service
announcement letter to Wallis Fashion.
Dear Wallis Fashion,
As I am sure you are aware, I am in the running to be your 1st U.S. Blogger Ambassador. This has been the most ginormous fashion career opportunity that has come my way. So before I begin with my letter to you, I just wanted to express my utmost gratitude for including me on this ride. No matter the outcome, I am humbly grateful.
I have spent countless hours on deciding how I would go about writing this "pick me" post/letter. At then end of the day, I figured I needed to stay true to who I am. The real me.
This isn't easy...tooting my own horn, bragging on myself, if you will. But, today is the day. If I don't do it, I will regret holding back.
I am no supermodel.
I am not 5'10".
I do not have flawless skin.
I don't own a pair of Jimmy Choos or a LV bag.
I have never been featured in Lucky magazine or any other magazine for that matter.
I don't get retweeted by big brands, okay maybe once by Target. That was a fluke.
I don't have tens of thousands of blog/social media followers.
I will say that I am real. I am passionate. I am genuine. I am sincere. I have heart.
I have loyal friends and readers because I am loyal to them.
Since day one of starting my style blog I have worked tirelessly for every single reader, comment, email, pin and tweet. My blog has become my third child.
I have never wanted something so much in my entire life, well except for 7th grade cheerleader, which I did not succeed in making. That is beside the point.
The point is that I am your girl...the 1st Wallis U.S. Blogger Ambassador.
Well, I'll tell you.
My style is accessible. Just like yours. It's for the every day woman.
On a daily basis I relate to women of all ages. I have girls in high school to women in their 60's that reach out to me for a daily dose of fashion.
I began my style blogging journey a short year-and-a-half ago. Who knows what the next year will bring. I would be lying if I didn't say it hopefully brought a trip to London my way (wink-wink).
Whatever the outcome is for this venture, I know that I am not quitting anytime soon. If you end up choosing another lady as your ambassador, no harm no foul. I know that I gave it my all. I put myself out there like I never have before. If this isn't meant to be, well, I believe that there is something else out there waiting just for me and my gift.
I am a lover of affordable fashion, style and trends. I enjoy taking that love and passing it on to other women around the globe.
I know I can do this. I believe in myself. I believe in Wallis. I believe I am your U.S. Blogger Ambassador.
Know that I will give 100% of myself to the Wallis brand. I will increase your sales. I will successfully promote your apparel. I have no doubt that hundreds of women will discover Wallis through me. I am already your ambassador. Let's just make it official.
When it is all said and done, I know that it is in His hands. He will provide as He sees fit.
"I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" (Phil. 4:13)
I hope and pray that you pick me.
Again, thank you for this amazing ride over the last week and I hope to meet the Wallis team soon!
