I didn't start personally documenting my style until July of 2010. So, this will be a half year post. Hopefully next year I will have a picture from every month to show you!
July is when I really started caring about my blog. I was also transitioning between two schools to follow my dream of becoming a costume designer.
I did a house tour with one of my most inspirational friends and collectors, Linda Zimmers. (see pictures here)
I hosted a tour of my room, here.
I snapped a lot of outfits in August, I turned 21, and I bought my first dress from Modcloth :) & also transferred to the University of Illinois.
I visited Lisa's Antiques for the first time, see my visit here!
I hosted a tour of my new apartment in Urbana.
I designed my first tattoo for my cousin Heather Jane!
September was full of beautiful skies, wonderful weather, and a new school.
My room mate, Karla, did a photoshoot of my suitcase collection and I :D
I started making my first shirt.. and finished it.
I hosted a costume shop tour of U of I.
October was beautiful, but getting colder. I was starting to adjust to a new living situation.
I really started taking pen palling seriously (although I still have so many letters to write!)
I signed on to costume design for my first film, Once Upon a Time in 1972.
I started a new feature called Suitcase Sunday.
November was getting pretty cold. This yellow ochre scarf became one of my favorite items to wear.
Nathan Adhikari took these photos of me in my Great Grandma Frisina's dress from the1950's (she is still alive at 98!)
Major vintage find: I found a 1953 Sears Catalogue! (more pictures here)
I wrote a fashion review on 1920's metal purses (I am starting a collection!)
December was completely freezing. I didn't get many outfits photographed due to finals, but I blogged A LOT!
I shared a story about the woman I was named after.
I did my first DIY making a vintage bow tie!
it was also featured on A Beautiful Mess as part of 12 days of hand made!
I started making a dress from a vintage bed sham (almost done, too!)
I hope you enjoyed my little projects!
love, polly :)
