Just on a whim, I decided to look back through ALL of my outfit posts (they only go back to December 2006 on this blog, but I have been taking pictures of my outfits since 2004) and here is what I was wearing exactly four years ago today:
If you’ve been reading since then you’ll remember that I always cut my face off. And while obviously my style is still similar (hello!! long skirt!!), I think it has evolved a bit to be more sophisticated and a little less casual. And, I still have (and wear) a lot of the things I wore so many years ago. Except I do NOT have this Botkier bag anymore, which is the one bag I regret selling! I loved it so much; Botkier doesn’t make the large size anymore, and they definitely don’t have this color. I hadn’t used it in a while and thought it was heavy (ha! the Alexander Wang bags were so much heavier than Botkier!), so I sold it to a reader. I hope she still loves it 🙂
Here are some other beauties:
From March 2008 – this dress is now for around-the-house or dog-walking only, but I do wear it often. And I just wore that James Perse v-neck last week! I sold the bag before moving to Austin and I do still have the sandals, although I don’t wear them very much.
From March 2009 – the pictures start getting bigger and I started showing my face a couple of months before. But notice the maxi skirt…which I still have. And I was wearing A LOT of James Perse around that time.
This picture is from April 2009 and interesting to me because I’m getting my haircut tomorrow and I’ve decided to go short, very similar to my hair in this picture, but I will keep my bangs.
I wonder though, how much my style has REALLY evolved? I definitely use more accessories now, wear less denim and have branched out to include silk and other fabrics besides cotton/jersey, but I still have a mostly casual wardrobe. And I still rely mostly on gray, black & white…
If anything, I feel like I’m dressing a little more “my age” now.
How has your style evolved over the last several years? Has it? Should it?
