Style Files: 2006-10

When I was in high school, I kept a style journal. It was a “filofax” type of planner, and I would jot down each outfit I wore every day so that I wouldn’t repeat it for the entire year!  No, my parents weren’t rich nor did I have an extravagant budget for spending. I just knew how to mix and match pieces to make an entirely new looking outfit each day.  This was my hobby.

My style is my own.  I like to mix classic pieces with unique and quirky designs that I find in vintage boutiques and consignment shops.  Unique stitching details, pleats, buttons, seams, embroideries, patterns, prints, cuts & fabrics are what I look for.  It doesn’t have to be a well known designer as long as it speaks to me when I’m shopping, nor do I care if I wear something that is from another season. If I love it, I’ll wear it. The fact is, I don’t dress to impress others.  If an outfit makes me happy, I’m content. Fashion for me has always been a way of expressing myself since I was a child.

Here’s a trip down memory lane. My style files from the years 2006-11. It’s interesting to go back and see some of the outfits I picked. Many I would still wear, but some I’m happy I have given away!
