Welcome to Pearls & Prada! I’m Danielle, but most people call me Dani. I’m a twenty-something East Coast transplant to the Midwest. I grew up in Virginia and Maryland, and moved to Kansas City in 2014 for work. I’m now settled in on the Kansas side and absolutely love it here.
I’m an adult student, currently studying HR Management at Avila University. I’ve earned my entire degree while working full time, so I like to think I’m good at multi-tasking but sometimes it is rough. I recently left HR to work in Real Estate Development. I hope to one day be able to support myself 100% through blogging, as it’s my true passion!
I am engaged to an amazing man, Jake, who is a small business owner and is incredibly supportive of all things I do. We both love to rock climb, which is how we met. We got engaged on Christmas Eve this past year, you can read the full story here. We have two adorable fur babies named Oliver (Oli) and Finnigan (Finn). Oliver is a Mini Australian Shepherd and Finn is a Toy Australian Shepherd and I’m sure you’ll see them sneak into my pictures from time to time.
Originally, I had named this blog “Everything Under the Kansas Sun”, but decided to re-brand early to focus more on fashion and lifestlye. I absolutely love fashion, but I don’t like to spend an absorbent amount of money on anything. I wanted to create a place where I could round up great quality pieces for even better prices and share them with everyone.
I pride myself on being a deal hunter and love the chance to share a bit of my life and my shopping prowess with you all! I like to think of my blog as “luxury looks for less” 😉 You can always count on me to be honest with you about what I think about something, and I share a lot of reviews of things as well on the lifestyle side. I’ll also throw in some How-Tos and blogging tips, too!
