2008 Recap

(click to enlarge)

Kimberly of FabFindsUnder50 just reminded me that at the end of last year I made a collage of the previous years outfits. I got a huge response on it on Flickr and it sparked lots of great conversations and was pretty insightful. BUT I guess I never posted it on here? I can't find it if I did.

So here a year late is a random sampling of my outfits Jan through Dec 2008. Now I just need to make one for 2009!

This was the text that went with it:
I randomly choose one pic from each of the past 12 months. I should of been
more choosey I now am thinking. I crop my photos almost daily so they were a
tish hard to line up, but anyways.....

Things I learned.
People like me in insanely expensive clothes or things that don't actually fit me so I pin them when I wear them.
Things that would be above the knee on others is below the knee on me and looks like I "like" that look that from this. I assure you its just cause I am too lazy to hem. I prefer shorter on myself.
People like me in lots and lots of layers.
That I don't like the belt over things look very much.
I own a hell of a lot of black and this isn't even a 1/10th of it.
My heels got higher as time went on. (I better learned to walk in them)
My hair might be more popular dark but its a BITCH to keep up. Dying every 3 weeks, stains EVERYTHING (towels pillows)
I like a big bow.

From L to R, top to bottom, I LOVE photos 1, 6, and 9. I'm with you, you look great in stuff that's short.

Also: can't wait for 2009's collage!
