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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tapestry

Monday, November 19, 2012 152 0

Dress: Anthropologie. Jacket: BCBG (similar). Shoes: Kate Spade (pink and blue versions on sale!). Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’ve had a life long love of tapestry and brocade fabrics for clothing.  It feels so regal, feminine and luxe.  As soon as I laid my eyes on this dress, I knew it had to be mine. It has this beautiful sparkle thread running through the fabric that is not visible in these photos.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

 

 

Rule Breaker

TOP: H&M. SKIRT: H&M. CLUTCH: Jimmy Choo. SHOES: Jimmy Choo. SUNGLASSES: Chanel. NECKLACE: Forever 21. RINGS: Kate Spade Love Notes Bow Ring, Ardene Thin Ring.

 

Over the years I have learned what particular styles, colours and fabrications look good on my body type, and which ones rarely flatter my shape.  This H&M mint eyelet skirt and peplum top break 2 of my “avoid at all costs” rules: 1. Stay away from satin, especially across my thighs, and 2. No skirt lengths below the bottom of my knee. I was so obsessed with the other trends in these pieces (mint, peplum and eyelet) that I had to try them on, even though I knew it was going to end in utter disappointment.  Shockingly, they didn’t look half bad.  What are some of your “do not buy” rules?
