Year 2

I remember this second year of blogging being really stressful. This was the year that I figured out wedding dress making, landscaping, school and selling your house simultaneously lead to an unpleasant Jentine. Matt hung out with our 60 year old neighbour on his front porch a lot that year because I was either busy or crying over my sewing machine. Dropping dress making was one of the best choices I ever made, though it took me a while to admit that. 
Other than that, I feel like I dressed more feminine and put together that year (could be my imagination). Now I prefer a bit of slouch and mess but things were pretty ladylike back then. 
Not ladylike? This t-shirt. Ha. I ranted like a champion on that post.

This is just a cheap polyester dress from the thrift store but with a few knots and some brooches (pinned to my bra actually...), the whole look of it is changed. This dress continues to survive closet clean outs based solely on this picture. HERE

Vintage sequin vest and Rag and Bone pants. This vest has been good to me over the years. HERE

I wouldn't say this is my favourite look ever but I kinda like how I just went for it and wore a double leopard print and threw in a animal print purse too. I remember a couple magazines showing double leopard that fall and feeling quite ahead of the curve. No big deal. I'm pretty sure I inspired them...;) HERE

A good, no great, vintage dress never looks dated. That's how I feel about this dress. HERE

A thrifted, hand-made, bubble hem, plaid trench. Enough said. Also, some of my favourite pictures ever on the most perfect autumn runway. HERE

A vintage DvF is pretty much a thrifter's dream. My friend found this one but one day I will find one myself. Until then, I guess I have a few great thrift finds of my own to distract me... HERE

I especially love the sequined top+black wide trousers and the leo dress!

Sometimes it takes us a while to realise and then finally make a decision. I am glad it was the right choice for you.

I love your "look-backs"! Sometimes when I look at past outfits I utter "what was I thinking". But all yours look so classic even years later. Love your blog!

Love all of these looks, and totally remember them, too. The floral vintage dress, the tied up hem dress, and the trench coat (loved those pics too) are all-time faves!
