I am 'Virginia born and bred.' My diverse tastes are reflected well on my blog, WorthyStyle. If you read this Tumblr you will likely see anything involving culture, travel, fashion and interior design. I love gifs, too, and often associate them with friend drama and/or work. I work in the public sector (legal).
