Wake Me When I’m Rich

WMWIR Ellen Tailor 5

WMWIR Ellen Tailor 5

We all have that one friend who’s a coffee fiend! You’ve probably got a few friends that fit that description. Hell, maybe YOU are that person. If that’s the case, you need this tee in your closet!

WMWIR (which stands for Wake Me When I’m Rich) is the creation of a girl with a passion for fashion and a dedication to design. Many of her tees are perfect for fans of the state of Ohio but she’s branching out and releasing pieces that are more mass appeal. Here are just a few of my other favorites…


I appreciate all of you who’ve taken the time to read and support my blog. Because of that, use the code “ThanksEllen” at checkout to receive $$ off your WMWIR purchase! (I’ll take the Alexander Made Me Queen tee, please. 🙂 )

Thank you to Llorac Photography for these amazing pictures with WMWIR founder, Annastasia Filippidis, who just so happens to be my beautiful cousin and my sister, Yanna, for modeling as well.

Fresh Faced & Fabulous

Ellen Tailor Ulta

I’m still trying to recover from a whirlwind week in Nashville at the CMA Awards. If you missed it, I vlogged all about my time there! My days were long and filled with interviewing country music’s biggest stars. (I know, I know. First world problems.)

When it came to my makeup, I wanted to look fresh faced and fabulous. So many of you complimented me in this photo that I originally posted on my Instagram. Thank you! Below you’ll find a list of products I used to get this look.

Holy crap! Am I wearing a crop top?! Technically, no. It’s a bathing suit top. This is one of the last summer outfits I feel I can wear. I’m going to eat my words but I’m kind of ready for scarves and sweaters. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s live in the present. Below are links to my favorite skirts and crop tops…err…I mean bathing suit tops 😉 Clicking the photos will take you to the product as well!

I pull fashion inspiration from many different places but this one I ripped directly off of Instagram. I’d say let’s do a “Who Wore It Better” but Chrisspy would win, hands down! I started following her fairly recently after I saw a post that she tagged with the genius caption, “Thick thighs save lives.” Yassss! My kind of girl.

I don’t have the confidence to pull off everything she wears (yet) but when I saw this look, a light bulb went off. I had all of the pieces in my closet, I just never thought to put it together. While the basics are identical, I added my own twist with accessories. Take for example these reflective shades I picked up at a local vintage shop in Snohomish, Washington, and the Kendra Scott necklace I snagged via RocksBox. (Use the code “ellenbff4” for a free month!)

My favorite accessory is the JORD Watch. This stunner is a handmade, wooden watch and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. I had a hard time trying to pick just one of their gems and ultimately went with the Cora watch in Purple Heart & Pearl. Check out the entire JORD Watch line for both men and women here. #flickadawrist Who do YOU follow for fashion inspiration? Is it someone on Instagram? A YouTuber? A celebrity? Drop me a comment below because I’d love to check them out!

{CLOSED} GIVEAWAY: Pride Has Arrived

Ellen Tailor Nube 9 PrideIn celebration of Pride Month 2015, my friends at Nube9 created this special Inspirewear racerback tank. Three graphs visualize the progress our country has made in LGBT rights over the past 12 years: the increasing number of states that legalized gay marriage, the number of senators who vote to eliminate barriers and the increasing number of residents in states where bans have been removed.

I’m proud to wear this tank and know that Nube9 will donate a percentage of the sales to the ACLU. Not only are you helping a good cause with your purchase, you’re helping save the enviornment. All of their items are made from recycled plastic bottles and the material is stupid comfy, doesn’t lose it’s shape nor does it shrink or fade.

All of the tanks are made locally in Seattle’s Captiol Hill neighborhood. Here are photos of my actual top being hand sewn. Keep scrolling for your chance to WIN one of your own.
