I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for the start of a new year. Don’t get me wrong, last year was wonderful. Plenty of amazing things happened. Drove all across the west coast, became editor of my HS yearbook, started looking at potential colleges and so many other things. I couldn’t possibly list them all. I think the most important thing that happened to me was starting this little blog. I had lost my passion for all things fashionable over the years. When I was a little girl I used to draw outfits all the time because I wanted to be a designer when I grew up. It seemed like over the years I lost that part of me. I started moving around and I wanted to fit in and make friends so badly that I fell into what I like to call the dark era of bad clothes. One day I decided that I wasn’t going to dress like everyone else-I was going to wear what I liked; what I thought expressed myself best. And then it hit me. I had no idea what I liked to wear.I started reading other fashion blogs and scrolling through billions of pictures on Chictopia, I saw all these people who had the confidence to wear whatever they wanted and it truly inspired me and helped me to gain that same confidence. When I compare myself today to me a few months ago, the change is insane. I feel like these past few months I have really became one in my own. And not just fashion wise but all around. If all of that can happen in the last few months to 2010 then I can’t wait to see what this new year has in store for me.
I think todays outfit is the perfect way to start the new year; It pretty much sums up me. A little bit of old mixed with the new. Casual yet chic. Menswear inspired but girly and fun. I’m quite the oxymoron of fashion.
I hope everyone had an amazing new year and that this year continues to be a wonderful one!
This has got to be my longest post yet. :)
