A Double Birthday.

Today is a very special day for not one but two reasons. 

It was on this day a year ago that I went out to the Broadway Cemetery and took my very first set of outfit photos for the blog. I remember enjoying a birthday lunch at Loca Luna with a few friends and then parting with them to go take the following photo. Coincidentally, I started this whole thing on my birthday!

I remember sweating my little toosh off trying to figure out the tripod for the very first time, and it was no different today when I went out in 103 degree weather to shoot a little video (meteorologist says it feels like 115!). The video was a fail because of an infestation of wasp nests in the abandoned hotel we were shooting in and because of the miserable heat. Everyone kept saying how dangerous it was to be out, so we decided to go back on a cooler day. I really didn't know what to do to celebrate both these birthday's, so I figured I'd just compile some of my favorite outfit photos from the last year. They're in no particular order and I did a really sloppy job of putting them together, but you get the idea. Thanks for making this blogging adventure a truly rewarding experience for me. Without you guys it would be nothing. Hopefully I'll be doing this for many many more years to come. :)

Pretty outfit overload. I think I just had heart palpitations! Happy blog bday! I think a lot of people started in August! I don't remember what month I started mine because I had a habit of deleting loads of entries (still do delete old ones at times, but rarely).

Happy double birthday! I don't think I comment on your lovely blog nearly as often as I should, but it has long been one of my very favourite reads. You have such a beautiful sense of style and I always come away from your blog feeling so creatively inspired. Thank you for a fabulous year of fashiony inspiration!

Happy Birthday, and happy anniversary! Here's to many more happy years of both.

Amanda said...

happy double birthday!! I'm so glad you posted these - I'd missed a lot coming in late in the year. This collection is incredible and I love how fearless you are in putting together outfits - unique silhouettes, gender stereotypes, etc - nothing scares you and it comes out incredible. I'm so glad I've had the chance to meet you and hope you keep blogging (or move to print or film and work there) for a long time

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I mean: HAPPY DOUBLE BIRTHDAY! Looking at these amazing photos, I realize that there are a few I don't recognize, like the one of you in the red romper and the amazing picture of you having a little picnic, and then I started thinking of the first time I came across your blog via Rhiannon's blog and how I felt like I had tumbled into some kind of wonderland (but not twisted like Alice's wonderland but happy and charmed) and how you had readers and fans long before I found your blog and how I feel the tiniest bit jealous of them because they got to know you and your blog when you were still at the very beginning stages and I didn't! But it just gives me an excuse to peruse the archives, yes?

Happy happy birthday Starr!

love,
Jenny
