Thank you so much to everyone for all your AWESOME name ideas for the name my blog contest! There were over 50 name ideas submitted and it was much harder than I thought it would be to narrow down to just one.
I have reviewed and spent time researching almost all the entries, which took a little longer than I thought it would (sorry!). Unfortunately a lot of my favorites were already in use somewhere else online or similar enough to that I would not want to risk using them.
Ultimately I had to go with one that stuck out to me from the beginning, and presented an idea I love which is incorporating my name into the blog name.
“Sh-opp-ortunist in Heels” submitted by Caroline and Kari Ann!!
In my last post I briefly mentioned that some things are happening that I am trying to figure out. Here’s the sitch on that:
Apparently my tiny little blog is infringing on a trademark. Part of the name that I love and spent months trying to come up with is trademarked by someone else, therefore I need to stop using it. So rather than spend another month or more trying to figure out a new name (because honestly I can’t take that long) I am enlisting you, my friends and fellow bloggers to help me out.
From now through next Tuesday in the comments section of this post, submit to me your ideas for a fabulous new name for my blog. I will review all submissions and choose the winner next Wednesday, February 6, 2013.
I love but am not completely attached to the “in heels” portion of my name, so submissions may or may not include that.
I would like the name to reflect somehow on my love of finding style on a budget and/ or thrifting
Please include your email address in your submission so that I can contact you.
I may or may not use the winning submission as the future name for my blog. By entering this contest you authorize me, Tiffany Opp, exclusive rights to use the name you submit for any and all future use online or otherwise.

I’m still here! Sorry I have been absent. Some things are happening that I am trying to figure out the best I can and I just got to Utah yesterday so that threw a small wrench in the works, but I am hoping to have everything figured out for the most part by next week.
I hope you will all be patient and stick with me. I have some fun things planned coming up including a possible contest with a giveaway… I’ll let you know more when it’s all nailed down. For now I am trying to enjoy some time with my family who I haven’t seen for over two years. So on with the outfit post.
This is what I wore yesterday while traveling and once I got to Utah. As you can see, I am the proud new owner of a chambray shirt. I have been looking for one while thrifting but haven’t had any luck so I finally decided to go ahead and splurge on a new one (it was on sale and I had a coupon, so that helped). Plus, I new it would be a great layering piece to use while in Utah.
I wasn’t completely sure about the denim on denim look but I liked it. The orange scarf helped it to be not as boring (and helped keep me warm too).
I am definitely having to readjust to the cold weather. I grew up around snow and I miss seeing it every winter. It’s funny because people I talk to here, have a hard time understanding why I would want to leave Florida to come here in the winter, but it’s nice to see something different. Even though the snow has lost its novelty to the people who live around it, to me it’s fun and fresh and exciting. When I woke up this morning it was snowing and I was so giddy I felt like a kid again. It’s been 5 years since I’ve seen any.
I keep thinking things are going to calm down now that the holidays are over… ha! I’ve been waiting for a lull in the activities so that I can work on my goal of getting ahead of my blog but since the lull doesn’t look to be coming my way anytime soon, I guess I just need to get my act together so that I can fit everything in. Anyone else having this problem…no…just me??
Anyway, I am in love with this striped top. It was one of my finds from last week’s sale day when I only had about 30 min to shop. I always love black and white stripes and I can rarely pass them by (I think it may be a problem). This one has a sort of faux wrap look going on which I like and is different from any others I have. It will go with a lot of stuff so I’m excited.
Even though it’s not a jacket, I liked the color combo and with the orange scarf I bought last night also I could do the same combo.
I linked up with:
Soooo….. I added a slit in the back. This involved me taking out the seam of the skirt AND the lining and then sewing it open. It only took about an hour to do that one thing. Lesson learned. If I ever make another skirt like this I’ll know to either have more fabric allowance at the bottom, or put in a slit from the start.
