At the end of the year, everyone tends to look back on their defining moments, the new things they acquired (whether they're tangible objects or relationships, skills, knowledge), and generally takes stock on how the past 12 months treated them. While I'll certainly go more in depth about what 2008 was for me (honestly, it wasn't that exciting), I feel like making a post about the frivolously fun part of the year - the things I wore. First, it's funny when I look at the above images because, in the first half of the year it was all black and red. Then, black and yellow. Strange. Anyway, weird coincidences aside, I found it really fun to go back and see how I dressed myself in '08. I definitely think I learned a few things about my style, and how to dress my body. And I'm still learning. I was also heavily influenced by the 40's through the 60's ... the 60's is always going to be lurking above my head when I stare into my closet each morning. Overall, it was a fashionable year, with a few mistakes (of course), and lots of lovely new pieces introduced into my wardrobe.
Here's to 2009, and hoping that I'll be getting a lot more fabulous dresses (and shoes, and purses, and necklaces and ...)
