year one

Today, while avoiding schoolwork, I stumbled upon a folder full of outfit photos from my first year of style-blogging. I deleted nearly all my posts from 2010 because of my borderline obsessive perfectionist tendences; I didn't want to subject anyone to the embarrassing quality of my old photos. This feeling was especially fervent as I'd recently gotten a DSLR and I could really compare them...and cringe.

When I looked at the pictures today, for some reason, the technical quality seemed to be much less of an issue. Maybe it's because enough time has passed and it's let me see them more objectively? And the outfits themselves weren't so bad, especially considering that this was the year that I was discovering my new style. Sure, there were the requisite missteps and negligibly-successful experiments, but on the whole, I don't think I did too terribly. :)

Here are some of my favorite outfits of 2010:

Above, right: I want my hair to be that color again! :D
