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.
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?  

  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?
