Six months ago, I haphazardly embarked on a mission to attempt blogging. It was a nervous venture to test my level of interest and ability in this new-to-me media. Today, I hit my 100th post and have loved every minute of it!
The blogosphere has been an inspiring and supportive environment with lots of room for an aspiring writer to grow. Drawing inspiration from others has helped shape Savoir-Flair (thanks to ciao tay for letting me swipe an image from YOUR 100th post!), but I can only hope that I've also spurred on others too...
Special appreciation goes to my sis at 100andSouth, who started this whole deal for me. She does an amazing job, tackling a relevant topic when it comes to the fashion-lover and today's economy. She made me brave and encouraged my inaugural post, not to mention every subsequent one. Thanks sis!
Also, to my three friends behind Sleepin' in the Sun, in the palm of my hand and Golden Zipper. You unapologetically and confidently share your thoughts and joys with the world and I can't get enough! Thanks for showing me that I can do it too.
And to those bloggers whom I have never met but love reading- Elements of Style, La Dolce Vita and coco+kelley, just to name a few- thank you and please keep it up! I love to see what you have to say each and every day!
FINALLY, thank YOU for being interested enough to show up to this blog and read...or at least look at the pictures. Without you, dear readers, there would be almost no point in all of the effort. I love your comments and hope you'll be inspired to post them more and more...
Okay, enough with my sentimentalism. Let's landmark this occasion with a special post. In honor of the 100th post and the upcoming 2011, I give you 11 of my most favorite things, like Oprah but without the budget...
My new favorite designer. Obsessed with almost everything they make...

Well, not exactly, but coined the REAL Devil Wears Prada, I can't wait to spend some q.t. with this movie. (I even saved this specific issue of Vogue to reference.)
