And talking about faux leather, meet the newest addition to the family, a pleated and orangey number which I scored from the summer sales this year at Bershka.
I did try following the trends this year but with a twist. I wore the midi skirt in floral mode, did the color blocking in lemon and lime instead of orange and fuschia, tried the perennial nautical look in red and blue and white stripes which turned out to be a color block in disguise with the yellow scarf around my neck( Hey, I tried hitting two birds with one stone!) and when Missoni colaborated with H&M, I found a cheaper alternative for chevron prints at a local store in here. You just have to werk it, girl. ;)
Then I fell in love with orange:
I also learned how to tie scarves which I love to collect but don´t wear enough.
This year, I posted six photos of me wearing a dress( only six!), I´m showing four. The rightmost is the newest while the others have been with me for more than three years now. If there´s one thing I learned from blogging about what I wore, it´s the idea that you can re-invent your look even if you´re wearing the same dress over and over again by tweaking the accessories that you´re wearing with it. A short knitted cardigan here, a short denim jacket there, a change in the color of your bag over there or a colored brooch on your shoulder and that´s it. So easy, no? ;)
I´m not really a dress wearing person. I´m more of the jeans,shorts and/or separates person so I had more fun with skirts. Having a solid basic colored skirt like beige is a must because you can pair it with any top and you´re ready to go. The same goes for printed skirts and when army green was the trend, I wore mine as a skirt. I tried the fluoro trend too in pink perfectly paired with a dark blue top and a floral cardigan in my fave color/shade, purple. I had a million of choices of combos for these pairings and I know that you do too with separates. :)
If there´s something which I´ve tried experimenting this year, these are prints like, swirls, stripes and black and white, tie dye and dark printed colors which have become this autumn´s and this winter´s trendy colors.
Lastly, I was ¨stoked¨ when I saw Rachel Berry wore this plaid skirt in one of Glee´s episode. What can I say, I´ve arrived! Okay, so that was just a coincidence. hehehe!
So there, I had a lot of fun checking at what I wore this year and got bleary eyed on the way too. These may not be the best looks and choices for you but I´m just a simple girl who´s trying to document what I wore for the past two years. I hope you also liked my bling, travel and food posts too when I noticed that there are a lot of ME photos indoors. lol!
Anyway, here´s to more funnier and wittier stories on 2012, promise! In the meantime, let´s enjoy the last day and night of the year by celebrating it with zest, laughter and lots of love all the way.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
PS: Please be careful with the fireworks. It might catch on your pretty dress. ;)
