Organized Mess

A Fashion & Lifestyle Blog

3 Year Blog-Aversary

How have I had this blog for 3 years!? It's hard to believe all of this started back in 2009 with this post. It's been great to be able to look back at different life moments through this blog, especially with me growing up since I started this when I was 16. One of the biggest reasons why I started blogging was so I could document my style and find inspiration through other blogs. It's been so fun to see how my style has changed through the years. 

November '09-November '10:
Within this year I went strictly to the sales racks. Don't get me wrong, I'm still all about discounts but I wouldn't even look at anything else and in a way I think this limited my wardrobe to mostly basic pieces. I wore high heels, especially from Wet Seal, all of the time with skinny jeans and dresses. I was usually more into laid back pieces during this time. 

November '10-November '11:
I remember at the beginning of this year being so inspired by some of my favorite tv shows and celebrities. I was always looking for outfits that reminded me of Rachel from Glee, Gossip Girl, Kate Vogele and Taylor Swift. Half way through the year is when I started to find my own personal style and realized how I loved dressing girly but with a vintage twist. 

November '11-November '12:
This last year is when I think Ive grown into my style more than ever. I realized there aren't any rules in fashion and I wore whatever I wanted without too much thought. So, I bought some heart printed wool shorts, leather shorts and even some red pants. Moving to Philadelphia, my style started to become more edgy along with the city but by the end of this year I think I found my girly-vintage self again. 

Thank you all for following me! It's hard to believe I have 700 followers who read this blog, your comments mean so much to me and I hope you all continue to follow along! <3 p="p">
