Guest Post: Illy From Much Love, Illy

May 26, 2011

Hey guys! I have another wonderful bloggy friend guest posting for you today, Illy from Much Love, Illy. She is the cutest thing ever, we sadly have never met but became insta-friends over twitter and our love of amazing shoes and American Idol! So glad that she was able to post! So take it away girl!

Hey, friiiiiieeeeends!! Or rather, hello friends of Morgan!! Hopefully we can be friends after this post. (Crossing fingers, toes, and eyes that we can!!) My name is Ilene, the voice behind the bloggity blog, Much Love, illy, a fashion and lifestyle blog. You can also find me at my etsy shop, designing and creating handmade accessories. I'm obsessed with coffee, snacking every two hours, shoes, and anything creative. I also am madly in love with a Southern boy (not literally a boy - he's 3 years older than me if that puts you at east) who I'll be marrying in the coming year and can hardly wait!!


So back to that whole being friends thing, once you get to know me and we're the best of friends, you'll know that I have a sick obsession over color. I can't walk out the door in just black or just gray. When I do, I feel like I'm about to go usher at a local theater (and totally nothing wrong with ushering. Totally loved doing that in college especially in Chicago to watch Shakespeare plays or the Blue Man Group for free. So point made - not against ushering). But I have to have a pop of color - whether by an accessory or the whole outfit blasting in color.


And lately, the color obsession as grown to mass intensity. I've found myself continually drawn to highlighter hues! I'm loving all the neons in pinks, green, yellows. If it's glowing neon, I'm looooving it. I recently joined pinterest and you'll visibly be able to see my obsession for yourself. Here are a few of my pins:

Hope you enjoyed these HOT images and inspired you in one way or another!! Morgan, thank you so much for having me!!!

Much Love,
Ilene (aka illy)
