This is not my first blog. I started writing a blog in 2003 which I've continued to maintain up until now. Back in the day, it was fairly well-read and saw lots of traffic. But for various reasons, I made it private about three years ago though, and although some of my faithful readers still comment, that blog is more like a historical archive for me.
Over the past year, I feel like I've struggled to find my place in the style/fashion blogging community. There are so many different blogs out there, ranging from ladies like Khatu, who make their own clothing; to Yentina, who is always sharing her amazing vintage finds; to Nicole Warne, who is involved in high-end collaborations with Louis Vuitton and other designers. I still don't know what my voice is or what my purpose/motivation for blogging is.
I do know that I have really appreciated interacting with all of the lovely people who have commented on my blog or who have engaged in discussion with me on their own blogs.
I thought some photos of an outfit featuring something old and something new would be a good way to celebrate my (belated) 1 year blog anniversary. I've had this white shirt for almost 10 years, and it is a comforting, reliable favourite. I paired it with a Zara skirt from this spring.
Shirt: Propaganda, Plen+y, very old
Skirt: Zara, Guipure Lace Pencil Skirt (only available in black now)
Shoes: Aerosoles, old
Purse: Banana Republic, old
