Looking Back and Looking Forward Part 3

In part 3 I will delve into 2012 (look a rhyme!). Now in 2012 my life had taken a pivotal change I had just finished my last semester SPC in the spring before dropping out… I was so over school… Then in August is jumped back into school, not just any school trade school so I could become a cosmetologist!!! I went to AVEDA and you have to work very hard, no one truly understands hair school until they’ve been there… In the midst of trying to figure what to do educationally, I was also thinking most seriously about switching blog platforms. I started on Blogger like many folks but what I really wanted was WordPress… So I drastically slowed down my blogging almost coming to halt, but was more like a trickle… Part 3 is recapping January – April. =) Here goes…

January 1st 2012, Happy New Year!!! I spent the day at home in this amazing 70’s Indian frock I found mine at a thrift shop for $4. But if you want one you can either luck out at the thrift shop or look for one on Ebay… Some good key words to find it are vintage Indian boho cotton maxi dress or Indian cotton dress… It generally costs around $75 to get on one Ebay…

New Years Dress

January 2nd 2012, Just because I can outfit… I really love this skirt and I believe I went grocery shopping when I wore this. good days and good outfits are always nice…

March 18th 2012 A church day, so say hello to the 60’s house dress. My dad couldn’t understand why I thought it was so exciting. Apparently when he was a kid they were a rather common and unexciting… But I didn’t care I wore it with flair and joy because hello, it was a 60’s dress. =) I was really into the 60’s in 2012. And this one had fringe trim what’s not to love?

March 23rd 2012 Spent the afternoon shopping with an old friend so I wore this… I believe I opened my WordPress account this day as well =) It took me 6 months to figure out how to export my blog..

April 7th 2012 I got my dad from work and wore this so we could take pic in a beautiful park. I designed the dress myself, well known fact in my circle of friends) is that I design fashion and jewellery… But I design because I love to, it’s a hobby not my job. which confuses people because they think it’s my job. Thus is life I guess… Aren’t those sleeves fabulous???
