Cardigan, Moda International. Lace blouse, Newport News. Skirt, Talbot’s. Fishnets, Simply Vera. Peeptoes, Mossimo. Earrings, import store. Bracelet, gift.
Each year, I put on the same outfit and stand in the same place to take my blogoversary photo. I attempt to replicate the pose and lighting. Last year, I mistakenly placed a hand on my hip. This year, silly me, I did not use the auto white balance setting on the camera and had to color correct in Photoshop to get a picture similar in tone to the others. The end result is a fascinating (to me, at least) parade through time.
Other than my blogoversary, I haven’t repeated a single outfit on this blog. I’ve become accustomed to outfit novelty and find it such a drag to pull out this tired ensemble each year. I allow myself to mix it up a little with accessories.
When I started this blog, the cardigan, blouse, and skirt were some of my favorite items. Naturally, my tastes have evolved and I don’t often wear any of these pieces. In fact, since my last blogoversary, I’ve worn the cardigan twice and the other pieces once each.

The shoes I wore for the very first picture have long ago expired. The Linea Paolo slingbacks I’m wearing for the next two photos are still in great condition, but I needed to wear peeptoes for this week’s Tights and Toes theme. I chose a pair with coloring close to the previous blogoversary shoes. You can’t see the nude fishnets in the lead photo, but a close up reveals the texture. I love the way the tan net looks over painted toes.
Thanks to all my readers, old and new, for visiting my site. I’m especially excited to have discovered so many other ladies with similar outfit diaries. (The number of style blogs I subscribe to through Google Reader is creeping up to 150!) The community of readers and bloggers is what keeps my interest in maintaining this blog. Here’s to Year Four!
