One

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 150 0

One year ago today, Crazy Style Love was born . . . and what a year it’s been.  Never in my wildest dreams could I have predicted the incredible amount of joy, support and personal growth I would receive from starting this blog. To recap the past 365 days, I thought it was fitting to showcase how I’ve worn one item in different ways.

Looking back at some of these photos, I realize just how much my style has evolved over the last year.  To some, the changes might not be apparent, but to me, it’s like night and day.  I feel that my style is much more refined than 12 months ago, and the new pieces that I’m adding to my wardrobe better suit where I want my style to be.

 

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your incredible and constant support.  The lovely e-mails and sweet comments you leave day after day are so touching and always bring a smile to my face.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

    Jenny, as korny as this sounds, I am so proud of what you have accomplishment! Though i’ve never met you in person (but maybe I will during september fashion week!) you seem like such a lovely person that deserve this success. I love all of your outfits and seriously want to raid your closet LOL. Even though I haven’t been blogging as long as you have, I have already find I am learning more what I want my style to be, and have even seen a change in mine. I love that having a blog can do that.

    Congrats on the one year! Looking forward to more to come xo

    I adore the peplum top and striped shorts! To me, you are like Blake Lively or Sarah Jessica Parker. You evolve and grow and look effortlessly chic all the while. I love your feminine, luze, easily attainable style (because you don’t wear weird stuff or crazy hair/make up!) Even though I couldn’t afford half of what you own I can totally try the look out myself because you stick to classic shapes and just add fun color and prints. I love that! Congrats on the blogiversary!

    • Jenny
      May 6, 2013

      Ashleigh, you have been so incredibly supportive and it means the world to me. I’ve also never been compared to those super fashionable women before, and I’m on cloud 9 now because of it. 🙂 Ha ha, thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.

    Happy blog birthday! This post reminds me of the day I found your blog and read back through your entire archive then left my first comment!

    I think my favourite is the first metallic skirt outfit with the feathers, just so pretty. I also really love your silver and white stripe skirt and the floral ASOS coat. Plus I purchased the H&M blanket coat after seeing it on your blog!

    I can see what you mean about the subtle ways in which your style has changed over the last year and I’m looking forward to another year of reading you blog 🙂

    Happy blogiversary, Jenny! Love your recap. You definitely included some of my favorite Crazy Style Love looks. I think my all-time favorite has to be Feather Factor. Faux and Florals and Stripes too. And also I’m thinking of this white dress that you have, with metallic details on top. It’s a very classic fit, and you wore a black belt with it. I loved that look. It was the first one I saw by you, on Chictopia. And I still remember it!
