Having been inspired by Patti of Notdeadyetstyle posting a retrospective of how she has evolved with fashion, I thought it a perfect time and way to celebrate Year Four of my blog this month and my own fashion evolution from drab to fab.
I began my blog thinking I shouldn't show my face but after awhile that seemed kind of silly.
Tentative steps toward more color in my wardrobe.
The Traveling Yellow Skirt hit town and I was no longer afraid to wear color.
This camera-created image from 2014 is one of my favorites.
Outfit posts and Fun Floral Fridays will resume in a few short weeks.
Bloggers that have inspired me to break out of my fashion rut are Helgavontrollop
Melanie from Bagandaberet
Dakota at Sweetheart of the Rodeo
I am drawn to the eclectic and unusual, they-broke-the-mold kind of personalities.
SpyGirl Anne posted this Facebook fashion-design-contest-us-only contest for the Brother Loves Fashion Sweepstakes. I entered a sketch (which I can't post here - contest rules and such) inspired by my retro Hawaiian shirt quilts with a Carmen Miranda-inspired head piece. My entry can be seen here http://bit.ly/1gbnpKU
Finally, you know how all the Blog "experts" say you should post daily and often and blah blah blah. Well, I have pretty much been neglecting my blog and posting comme ci comme ca and continue to gain followers. Go figure. Anyhoo, welcome new readers! Each year I post a Countdown to Kitschmas celebrating things kitschy + Christmas. My season of sewing will soon end and my pursuit of holiday inspired images will begin.
