This is the first installment of "The Sweet Taste of Freedom". I am terribly infatuated with the idea of owning my own company/store, which is why I decided to showcase these women. They either own their own store/company/blog etc and are doing so with beauty, grace, and determination. Please feel free to visit their websites and continue to support small and local businesses in 2012!

Street style inspires me quite a bit, both photographed and in person.

I started my blog in 2008, and my favorite posts are the ones that get readers talking, be it about issues, or about personal style.
What celebrity would you most like have praise your store/product(s)?
Dita Von Teese!
If you had to use only one word to describe yourself, what would it be?
