accordingtoannika 's Thoughts:

Check out all the photos of this outfit here!

These photos were the very first outfit photos I posted online. It was on November 8th, 2009, and they were taken by my then 15 year old sister Wendi in Los Angeles.

We were going into Hollywood Boulevard to shop fun and cheap vintage, eat hamburgers and look at all the weird and wonderful people who frequent that street. It’s pretty cool that noone has ever been able to take nicer outfit photos of me than my baby sister! She’s quite the talented photographer, that one.

I can’t believe it’s not even been two years since that day. It feels like forever and then some. And I can’t help thinking that things were so much better back then. Easier.

That’s not true, though, I realize that. It’s just our memories’ way of coping with everything that happens to us. Things weren’t at all easier in November of 2009: some were, sure, but other – quite the opposite.

But I guess that’s the thing with time. It keeps moving forward, for better and for worse, and we can’t ever go back. All we can do is make sure we never forget how things used to be, and try to learn from them.

What I can say with certainty is this: the day we took those photos, that was a good one. It really was. That’s not my memory playing tricks on me. That particular day, I was happy.
