Call Me Kimberellie

I've had a lot of nicknames in my life:

Kimbuck 1/2/3/4/5 (insert age here), Kimbee, Kimba, Kimber, Kim (technically a nickname as it is not on my birth certificate), Kimbits, Kimbersuprize, Kimberlitz (the preceding three are all from one very creative friend), Kimbo, Kimmer, Kimberellie, Berly, Purple Stinkin Dog Toy (it was high school, my best friend is mean/strange), Kimbebimbee, Kimithee, & Kimberlybimberly (my husband says the last one is not a real nickname because nobody calls me it. But I call ME it!)

I think that's all. That's a list I have been wanting to compile for a long time. It seems my name is really amenable to nicknaming. Or perhaps I am just a nicknameable person. Either way, I don't mind. Just don't call me Kimi. I HATE Kimi.

Okay. Kimberlybimberly is going to bed now. But first an outfit picture! (I'm trying to combine my inane ramblings with fashion blogging here. I wonder how it's working.)

This is me in my reconstructed leather skirt again. The skirt was my mother's; but please, don't tell what I did to it; I won't wear it around her for fear of what she'd say seeing that I took a sewing machine to her skirt and went crazy! I think she might be upset, even though she GAVE it to me and it looks REALLY cool this way. Moms!

HEART: Kimberellie


  1. nice touch on the skirt! looks good

  2. Phew! I was afraid for a minute you were going to tell us we couldn't use all the amusing nicknames anymore. Kimbersurprise is new to me. I like it!

  3. I'm pretty sure you are the one who coined "Kimbersuprise". Or, wait, maybe it was Melissa. I thought it was you! It must have been Melissa then. That also seems right!

    And thanks! I feel pretty and I totally love the skirt. It is just so soft to touch. I heart leather.

  4. You pull off amazing outfits. I am impressed! P.S. I started a blog on blogger...I finally moved from my old blog home. Ee!

  5. Ohh love your leather skirt! It has really great texture and shape.

  6. Thanks! The texture's all mine. ;-) A half an hour with a friend's sewing machine made all the difference in the world! It's funny, on at least four different fashion blogs right now, there are leather skirts. Must be a leather skirt week!

  7. Asymmetric hem skirts come are very popular and highly stylish by women. These skirts come in a variety of shapes and suit all figures.


With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
