Hello, and welcome to Primped & Proper! I began P&P with the idea of creating a fashion and beauty blog. My vision was to post outfits I wore, but then my blog developed further than I thought (I still want to post outfits, but I am working on that). I began delving into fashion beyond the surface. I dove head first, researching in depth about changing styles throughout different eras in history.  I enjoyed looking into how fashion evolved and how previous trends influence our current fashion styles today. I do admit that was a lot of work, but I loved it. Then, I began just writing about whatever came to my head…fashion, beauty, DIY, baking, lifestyle etc. Primped and Proper began as a fashion and beauty blog, but it has become so much more! It has become what goes on inside my head, everything I love and adore! P&P has become a lifestyle blog, the lifestyle of Taite. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and following me along the way as a I mold and shape my blog into the perfect combination of all things I love!


A little more about me…

Some of you may know me as Taite, others may know me as the fashion fanatic who runs the blog Primped & Proper, both are true. I am from the great state of Texas and come from a family of four girls and one outnumbered guy. I have one furry friend, Zuzu who I adore! Some of you may wonder how I got into fashion, well the truth is I never got into fashion…I was born into fashion!  I practically came out of the womb with a pair of sparkly heels on, the day I took my first steps I made everyone take off their shoes so I could wear and play with them. Some may remember me as the first grade girl wearing high heels, dresses, and adorned with numerous pieces of costume jewelry. I loved all things girly and always will! I have never been afraid to be a trendsetter, yes that has caused me to wear some funky things, but who hasn´t ?!? My style has for sure evolved, I have transformed from the little girl decked out in neon peace signs, to a refined, sophisticated sense of style. I am certain that my style will continue to transition, but fashion was meant to go out of style! Am I right? I am a lover of many things, but to name a few, clothes, makeup, fragrant candles, parfum, baking, music, and history (preferably fashion history). My favorite television shows include Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Mad Men, Gossip Girl, and Sex and the City. My favorite movies consist of How to Steal a Millionaire, Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorf´s, Gone with the Wind, and Mean Girls. My all time favorite music artist is Frank Sinatra, hands down! And the most important part… my favorite clothing stores/designers are Neiman Marcus, Zara, Nordstrom, Bergdorf Goodman, Club Monaco, CHANEL, Louis Vuitton, JCrew, and ASOS. I look forward to traveling with you on this wonderful journey called life. Now lets go put on our sparkly Manolo Blahniks and diamonds!

XOXO,

Taite
