Welcome to Bricolage! My name is Bri, and I am a twenty-something, happily married lady with a passion for fashion and a love for stylish living. I've spent most of my life living in central California, but after a short-term stint living in Maryland, East Coast prep style has definitely creeped its way into my aesthetic. In college I studied Art History and English Literature, but I've always been completely enchanted by the world of high fashion. Some of my favorite things are baking, painting, dogs, fashion magazines, afternoon tea, the Victorian period, Christmastime, black and white stripes, peonies, letter writing, Gossip Girl, Harry Potter, being overdressed, organized closets, and the color pink. The people I admire most are Audrey Hepburn, Anna Wintour, Martha Stewart, MK&A Olsen, and Nancy Drew. I'm a dreamer, a bookworm, a night owl, an over-analyzer, and the most curious people watcher.
ABOUT THE BLOG
I founded Bricolage in September of 2010 with the intention of sharing all things I find stylish and visually inspiring with a community of people who share my love of fashion and stylish living. I titled my blog 'Bricolage' because ever since I stumbled upon the term during an Art Theory course in college, it's been my favorite word, and serendipitously enough, my name is Bri! (Really, who doesn't love a word with one's name hidden in it?) I consider this blog my own personal inspiration collage, and in a sense, I view blogging itself as a form of bricolage. I truly believe that the happiest people in life are not those who have the best of everything, but those who make the best of everything. I think you can also apply this idea to the most "stylish" people.
Thanks so much for stopping by! If you'd like to partner with Bricolage through advertising, giveaways, etc., or if you have questions or something stylish to share, send me an e-mail!
