So, in a week it will be officially 4 years ago that I started my blog. I have a lot of feelings about this. I have a lot of feelings about everything, so this is no surprise... I wrote this long post after the first year of blogging and I think a lot of it still holds true. Though obviously in three years much has changed in the blogging landscape... I'll try to keep it short this time.
87% of the time, I love blogging and 13% of the time, I wonder what the bad word I am doing. That 13% mostly happens in the winter too... ugh, winter, why are you so cold and grey? Sometimes the politics, statistics and the business of blogging can muddle my feelings but the one thing that never changes for me, is the love I have for clothing. Some people like music, cars, hockey... I like getting dressed. And it's pretty cool to be able to share that with an audience and to connect with people who feel the same way. I'm not a blog superstar, a photography expert (though we've gone for 4 years without a DSLR and I think we make do pretty well...;) pat on back.) or a social media guru... I'm just a girl who likes cats, thrift stores, good sales and rambling on about little bits of my life. And as long as I am having fun and enjoying myself, than I hope you are enjoying reading here as well. And I thank you for reading here.
Who knows what the future holds... Hopefully exciting stuff. And more cats.
I just want to take a little look back and pick a few favourites from each year. Maybe a 4-part looking back post is a bit gratuitous but... I have no excuse... I just thought it's kinda cool to look back, see how my style has changed (and my writing) and to see so many pieces that I still love and wear.
Again, thanks for reading, commenting, liking and for being pretty freaking cool!
(Thrifted vintage Ungaro skirt and the perfect wall as its colour compliment. This will sound so cheesy but this outfit and these pics were the first time that I just felt it all came together. HERE)
(Elie Tahari dress I found for about $35... I've worn it to many weddings. That is my Mama's necklace and I could stand to borrow it again soon. HERE)
(Of course I had to include my favourite floor length sequin skirt and a field of cows. HERE)
(Zara dress, thrifted blazer and the leafy backdrop of the Hamilton escarpment. HERE)
(Tried and true mix of casual and sparkly. And a giant bun of fake hair. HERE)
(Thrifted sequins and playing around with Christmas lights. That's the wallpaper we put up in the living room of our old house. Awww... fond memories of that cute little place. HERE)
