Personal Style Flashback

One of my New Year's Resolutions of 2011 is to work on developing my own sense of style.  I mentioned how I have been looking back at old photos and how I've never exactly followed the trends.  So I thought I would share a few photos of my "fashion sense of the past"!




When I was a little girl I did not make decisions on what clothes were in my wardrobe.  I was always immaculately decked out in the most darling little dresses.
 So
 Darn
 Cute!
The result of this was a lifelong love of pretty dresses!!

Soon, I started to make choices on the clothing that came into my wardrobe.
I LOVED this shirt! (the yellow one!) I used my own money to order it from the Sears catalogue.  I also ordered a black belt that was shown with it.  It was so AWESOME!

Later, fluorescent colours were all the rage and this was one of my favourite outfits:
Who doesn't love fluorescent pink?

I loved to explore with my own style at home.
Notice the mismatched socks. And the super-cool leg warmers!
(I'm so glad they are back!!)

This love of dress up (at home) did not fade with age.
And I continued to love items that were not "trendy".

There are a few items that I love as much now as I did then!
I love the skirt, and the cap, even the blazer and vest look pretty good to me.

And now I'll share a few dresses that made me feel like a million bucks when I wore them!

First up: Grad escort dress... 
...hated the hair, loved the dress!

Now, my grad dress:
There truly was not a more fantastic dress in the world!
(trust me... we looked for 3 whole days!)


The dress I wore to the Sydney Opera House:
I felt so glamorous!


And Finally...
the dress I wore to my wedding celebration!
It was so perfect!


So now... where does that leave me?  

Loving:
  1. fancy, beautiful dresses
  2. hats
  3. skirts
  4. leg warmers
  5. pink!  ooh la la!
  6. things a little quirky
  7. or whimsical!
So, now I just have to figure out how to make my wardrobe reflect this!  Any ideas?
