DEF-SHOP.COM - GIRLIE BLOG'S FIRST SPONSOR

It is a profound moment in every blogger's "career" when we get our first sponsor.

Of course, we all started blogging for fun. But then something clicked and we fell in love with the craft. Soon enough, we spend an obscene amount of time posting, snapping pictures, designing and formulating ideas -- blogging isn't just our passion, it's an obsession!

And when we get an email from our first sponsor -- huh? You want to WHAT my blog? -- it's like Christmas all over again.


Meet Def Shop, a German-based clothing store that offers casual street wear, a.k.a my favorite things to wear.

From wonderful ankle boots to beautiful dresses to cool accessories, Def Shop offers the hottest fashion with the coolest style.

I am both excited and honored to have Def Shop as a sponsor for next year. (Loved working with their marketing team, by the way.) 

And please, give Def Shop a look. Their stuff is really cute and affordable. 

Here are a few of my picks:

The perfect sweater dress for winter





Cool, chic riding boots for strutting the streets


Beautiful double-breasted coat to battle the cold


Lovely turquois wallet for a night out
Isn't this watch both stunning and cool?



Who was your first sponsor? 





And how thrilled were you?
