Year in Review: random moments

Friday, December 27, 2013

In a couple of days I'll be sharing my favorite outfits of the year, but for now I wanted to share some notable posts, moments, and photos from the past year.

Notable posts/moments:
Goodwill Goodstyle Fashion Show -- In May, I styled an entire collection of all thrifted items from Goodwill. I picked the music, the hair, make up, and sent my collection down a runway. It was such an incredible and fun experience. Preview post of the collection is here.

Judged a fashion show at the Cleveland Museum of Art -- The Cleveland Museum of Art invited me to be on a panel of judges that included a textile professor, a fashion designer (she was on Project Runway!) and an art curator. We judged a collection of items that local designers created to go along with an exhibit that was happening. We got to "deliberate" and announce winners. It was so much fun!

Went to California
-- This is mostly only exciting because I got to meet and spend a week with Ashley. We all know she's amazing online, but hey, she's pretty fabulous in real life too. She's also a gracious host. It was my first time in California and I was so in love. Plus Disneyland, shopping, palm trees, the ocean, Ashley, and Erica. It was a wonderful trip and my first and only "spring break".

-Went to NYC (twice!)
-Got a thigh tattoo (have I even shared a full photo?)
-Met Jen
-Moved into my first apartment
-Kept up with our annual "bloggers" clothing swaps
-Met and became friends with more local bloggers -- seriously so much fun
-Saw Amy Poehler do improv
-Ate at one of the best restaurants I've ever been to "Do or Dine" in Bed-Stuy (New York). Seriously, the absolute best
-Discovered and saw Saintseneca three times. Which is to say, they've quickly became one of my favorite bands and are most definitely my most top listened to band of the year
-Went blonde!
-Mourned (and still mourning) the end of Breaking Bad aka the best show of all time
