What better way to finish up the year than a look back at what I’ve worn over the past twelve months? While looking through my archives, I found that I am terrible at posting regular outfit posts, so hopefully that’s something I can improve on for next year! (If people still want to see outfits, that is. If you hate them, let me know!)
January: I was going for a 90s grunge look here, one that I’ve returned to now that it’s a new year. Looking back, my blonde hair looked horrible 90% of the time.
I’d forgotten about this T-shirt until I saw this picture, so I’ll be pulling it out again. I have real prescription geek glasses now, and I still love that skirt which I’ve had for years now, so this outfit may be getting a repeat soon.
An Alice-inspired look to go and see Alice in Wonderland with my lovely course-mates. This dress will definitely receive an airing as soon as the weather warms up a bit.
My WendyB-inspired “double denim and a bolo tie” outfit. I actually like my hair blonde in this cut and all curled. It looks a bit modern Marilyn Monroe, no? My hair is currently being really stupid and refuses to go into anything resembling a style, and also isn’t really growing. Very frustrating.
Cycling shorts! I picked these up on a blogger meet-up with Sherin, Leia and Harriet. Can’t wait for the weather to be warm enough for shorts and a t-shirt again! Also, note the first appearance of red hair.
Even in summer I wear head-to-toe black. I really must break that habit. I love my bowler hat!
Although you can’t see it that much in the picture, I can guarantee that there is some dodgy fake-tan going on here!
The one time I’ve ever managed a decent smokey eye. A night out in the amazing yet dangerously high Bordello Teeze platform heels. I wore them out on Christmas Eve as well and ended up being taller than most people.
I love these Black Milk galaxy leggings. Not only is the print amazing, they fit like a dream and are so comfortable. The denim shirt is kind of a fall-back piece since it’s comfy and easy to wear.
An outfit worn for a Shout Out Louds concert. I really like the bandanna, but has Cher Lloyd ruined them now? What do you think? Surprisingly, working with a “capsule wardrobe” in France hasn’t been as boring as I thought it would be.
An all black, white and gray capsule wardrobe can get boring, so I’ve tried to keep things interesting while I’ve been studying abroad by wearing graphic prints. I do love these tights, I’m just really worried about laddering them like I always manage to do.
A couple of people from home have remarked on how I “always wear the same shoes” on my blog, but Doc Martens are just comfy and practical, especially with all the snow and ice around at the moment, so I make no apologies for them, and they’ll continue to pop up on the blog regularly for the foreseeable future!
So that was 2010! Hope you’ve all enjoyed reading The Fish Tank this year, and that you’ll be sticking around for 2011.
Which of my outfits do you like the best? How about the least?
