hi - yay giveaway! i like to read your blog because it's great style inspiration for me and my job - i work at a consulate in chicago - so need to dress professionally and elegantly, but still in a manner that is culturally aware - fashion is a great way to express one's interest in the arts.

ps - tried a short-sleeved, theory white shirt: very opaque and good quality, just more expensive than would like... still looking.

I got addicted when you wearing all that YSL and have been following ever since. You put things together in a very on trend but not trendy way which I really appreciate.

I love your blog, your style is refreshing! Wish you would show your face though, bet you are hella cute! :)

I like you're blog because the name of it first stood out to me "thumbelina fashionista" and I figured you were tiny like me and I like to see how other "petite" fashionistas dress. It's refreshing to see that you are conservative and don't dress outlandish.

Hi! I discovered your blog through Style Spy, and I'm a fan because I'm short too so I find I can take inspiration from your style. I'm also a huge fan of belts and am always interested to see how you wear yours. Thanks for running the contest!

Sorry, forgot to leave my hometown -- Philadelphia.

I love how you mix pieces together! I'm able to observe the designer labels being worn with basic labels that college students like myself wear. It's definitely awesome to see another person's style for inspiration. Thanks :]

I love your blog because you dress very elegantly and because you're petite which gives me ideas on how to dress for work too..I've been reading your blog since last year and have recommended it to my friends.

I'm sentimental about this blog: it opened up a whole world of fashion chat that I never knew existed. I love the style and the advice, which transcend trend and size (!!).

Hi Thumbelina-

I love this jean. I hope I can win this contest ;)..
I love coming to your blog because I like your clean and elegant style.

Jazibelle said...

Hi, this is Julie J. from Miami, FL. I keep coming back to your blog because of it's original material.

I follow a lot of fashion blogs and many seem to pass around the same editorials/photos coming from the industry. Yet my favorite blogs are ones like these that portray how a real woman incorporates the industry's products into her own style. I can appreciate your mix of a high quality pair of shoes or belt with a more economical blazer, dress, etc.

As many have already mentioned, it's also nice to see a petite woman dressing her own frame.

This is always included in my recommended list of style blogs. :)

Dear TF:
The reason I come back to your blog frequently is because it's remarkably well written, but even more importantly, it makes fashion completely accessible and democratic. I love the fact that you stay anonymous, because you're not out for your own fame, but rather you're about educating the public on how to dress beautifully.
With much gratitude,
Susan A.

I completely agree with the above comment. I love your well written blog. I love that you keep your own style & taste, which is not jumping over to too extreme trend, but still elegant & chic.

I keep coming back to your blog to get inspiration! I love seeing how others wear things. Since I started reading fashion blogs, I have taken more chances with my daily wear.

xtinagirl said...

Hi! I actually came across your blog while reading others. Then I realized I had stumbled upon an amazing fashion blog. The reason as to why I keep coming back is simply because you make things wearable. You take a piece and make it something that I'd feel comfortable wearing casually. Love your blog!
