2012: a year in review

Last year, this blog went through a lot of changes and this year proved to be the pay off. Looking through my archives was so much fun! My style didn't change per se, but it definitely evolved. As did my hair. These photos made me miss my ombre hair more than anything else. Hands down the best hair I've had.

I had a very awesome and productive blog related year. My favorite event was hands down the 330 Clothing Swap. If you need a refresher, that was the large scale (80+ people) clothing swap that my friends (bloggers!) and I hosted. We organized the ENTIRE event. From the guest list, to the venue, to the sponsors, to sorting all the clothes, planning the snacks/vendors, setting up the event, and working the five hour swap. It was a huge learning experience and an amazing successful event. I would love to do something like it again. The event was far more successful than I ever imagined. Here's the post I wrote about it.

In the same regard, this year we created Flock Together. It's been a wonderful experience. I love all the bloggers and especially all the beautiful clothes that I've gotten to wear.

  4. I love seeing a bunch of your outfits in one post. I don't think your style has changed at all either, it doesn't have to! I love your fun and colorful outfits, they are always an inspiration to me. I also love seeing the transformation your hair has gone through. I like the ombre best too! But it gets old, I should know :).
