About Me


Hello and welcome to my blog, Primped & Proper. Ever since I can remember I have had an infatuation with beautiful clothes and makeup. On P&P I will share all my favorite finds, whether it be clothes, makeup, travel destinations, et cetera. Clothes are meant to be worn, luxury is meant to be enjoyed, and life is meant to be lived. Grab a glass of bubbly and kick up your perfectly polished feet!

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! I cannot forget to mention my sweet boyfriend, Andrew whom I have been with for two years and counting! Some of you may wonder how I got into fashion, well the truth is I never got into fashion…I was born into fashion! haha.  I practically came out of the womb with a pair of sparkly heels on, the day I took my first steps I made every single person in the room take off their shoes so I could wear and play in them. Some may remember me as the first-grade girl wearing high heels, dresses, and adorned with numerous pieces of costume jewelry (Charming Charlies was MY store).  I loved all things girly and forever 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, and music. 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, Sabrina, Gone with the Wind, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and Mean Girls. As you can tell, I enjoy a lot of Old Hollywood movies. 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, let’s go put on our sparkly Manolo Blahniks and diamonds!
