A look back at a year of personal style blogging

My little blog turns 1 today.It was today 1 year ago that i’ve published my very first outfit post here. I had so many things that I wanted to say, but as I started writing this post my mind went completely blank. Many of you might already know that I have started my blogging journey since the 2008 on my other blog. I have can’t say that I have transitioned here because I still blog there as well. As much as I love my other blog I do not get the type of interaction I get on this blog.Within this year I’ve learned so much about myself and things I could do. I have met so many amazing people, and I call some of them friends now. I am that girl who stood in front of her closet and said “I have nothing to wear” ( well I still do that)  but I put a little more effort in finding treasures in my closet and even remixing my clothes.This little place would not be what it is today without each and everyone of you that stopped by , left lovely comments, pinned my pictures,  gave me advice, and laughed at my not so funny jokes.To you, I say thank you, thank you for the love you’ve shown me. I am not going to lie, when I started posting about myself I was afraid about all the negative people online. You’ve all inspired me one way or another and I hope, I also inspired you in some way. I also want to say thank you to the brands that believed in my vision and gave me a chance to make a few coins doing what I love.Within the next year I am planning to share more about my blogging experience with you such as landing work with brands, how I edit my pictures, drive traffic to my blog, and more……. I cannot wait to see what the next year will bring.

This is the outfit I wore on the last day of Toronto Fashion Week. I never wore the outfit I planned for the last day because it was just to cold. I wore this printed suit last year  and the only thing I changed is the shirt. Asos has these 2 suits that I have been stalking for a while now.
