Hello All...

It's Double O Jenn with an apology from her pen. I truly owe PUGStyle an apology... I have been away for several months (my last update was Jan 28, 2013), and it has been due to personal issues I had to deal with/work out, and my own misconceptions/misinterpretations from discussions here. Probably best to start at the beginning, so let me begin here:

I began to wane away from PUGStyle back in September because I personally felt that – as someone who does not own a single piece of PUG's clothing or accessories – that I did not have the true wherewithal to be a PUG. Let me be clear: NO ONE TOLD ME THIS NOR WAS THERE EVER SOMEONE WHO INTONED IT. However the feeling came about, I know it was my own insecurity at work here (well, I know it now, anyway). When I began on PUGStyle, I was ECSTATIC – finally someplace where there are other women like me who like my sense of style and I won't be judged or mocked for it!! How I went from the excitation to the other I really don't know. I know that my waning began to really come into place when I started dating someone, and it became the “excuse” I needed/wanted to not log onto the site anymore except occasionally. Since I could communicate with the one person who was admirably insistent (and to whom I owe great thanks!) outside of PUGStyle, I didn't feel it necessary to log on at all. I also felt that because my blog wasn't well received, it was a personal reflection on me not being well received. I am truly now well aware of how self-centered that sounds (as well as childish), hence part of the reason for this long-winded apology.

Since relationships come and go, and insistent people to whom I owe great thanks do not, I have slowly come to realize that I am a PUG with or without the clothes. PUGStyle helped me find MY style – one that took 36 years of evolution and a lit fuse from PUG. Without seeing all of your words, your pictures, your stories, I would have never gotten to the place I am now in owning my sense of style and who I am as a person. I miss talking to the few of you who I had regular conversations with... you have made such an impression on my heart and my life that I will be forever grateful.

And so, with all of that being said, I apologize to all of you at PUGStyle.

I'm back, and thankfully, there is a BACK to be at.

Well I have been blessed. We met through PUG Style. But we have become in-person friends. How great is that?!

I am glad that you have come back here. Your contributions are always so interesting and well thought out. And I don't think that you need to apologize.

One more thing, I have some photos to post of Jenn and myself. I promise to post them in the near future.

Yay! Can't wait to see them, Aoife!

I'm also going to restart my blog, but this time, instead of all about fashion, but about life in general... as a 30something trying to (still) find my way through life. I think it will be both cathartic as well as interesting - and if I have followers, yay!, but if not, I won't take it so personally.

Thank you for being insistent!!

Hi Jenn,

I can't say that we've really spoken that much here on the forums, but we've all been where you are and that's one of the reasons we all come here together.

Amber and Leanna are right about us blogging ladies being here to support you and each other, I'd really love to hear what you have to say about your experiences finding yourself.

If you ever need anything at all, whatever it may be, please never hesitate to ask for help from anyone or all of us here.
