It's hard to believe that as of today, I've been blogging six years! I started on this date back in 2008. I've come a long way since then. I still love gloves but my style has definitely evolved. Thank you all so much for reading and for your amazing support. This journey has given me so much. I've met the most incredible people many that I now call friends. I've gained more personal confidence from blogging and social media. Although I've gotten negative comments and hate mail, that has only served to boost my inner strength. My original goal was just to get to see some fashion shows (mostly NY Fashion Week). I've seen shows but now Fashion Week is one of my key goals for the coming year. I'm also considering some fashion related business ventures. None of these things would have ever been possible without each of you reading and commenting. Thank you!
This isn't my cake (found here) but if I bought or created an RGR birthday cake, this one would be perfect! I love it!
On February 1, 2011, I posted my very first outfit photo. It was a huge accomplishment for me. I'd always hid a bit in photos to hide the lower half of my body. Posting regular outfit photos has really helped me to feel more confident in myself and my curves.
I posted this photo to instagram last week and I've gotten lots of positive feedback on the styling of this lovely cape jacket. Proof of my style evolution.
I have gone through some low times with blogging. There were times I felt burnt out and needed to take a break. Recently I've felt a resurgence in my love of blogging. It may have something to do with my upcoming blogger collaboration. If you live in the DC area or can come in for the weekend, I'd love to meet you! Stop by the Shopaholics Suite on November 8 and say hi.
Thank you again for reading and enjoying my posts. I really enjoy reading your feedback. Show me some birthday love in the blog comments or on twitter, instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.
