Before I Was a Fashion Blogger

By Wardrobeoxygen @wardrobe_oxygen
I shared this link on Twitter and it brought up many memories of old music, old memories, and old fashion. I remembered going to a Creed concert in the '90s (I KNOW!), wearing overalls and a bandanna over my two pigtails (double I KNOW!). It made me start to think about my personal style pre-blog - how was it before I started sharing it online.
I hit up my dusty MySpace page (too bad I didn't keep my Friendster account) and found a few great sartorial blasts from the past.
Before I was a fashion blogger...
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I wore pastel pink to my rehearsal dinner (for the record the twinset was cashmere and those pants were brocade and cropped - all from Banana Republic).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I wore a matte jersey maxi skirt in Paris (and took matching matte jersey pants, cardigan, tunic, tank, and short skirt to mix and match).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...and cargo pants in Norway (the horror!).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I wore a lace tank with jeans to a nightclub (and had WIRE HANGERS in my closet!).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...and off the shoulder tees from Express to beachside bars.
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I loved Go Fug Yourself in the early days and purchased their tee shirt each year.
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I wore white shorts with sneakers.
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I always loved bright colors...
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...and I loved anything with sequins or sparkles (still do!).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I always wore my silver cuff (still do!).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...and wore boat shoes as grunge (that's my dad with me).
Before I was a Fashion Blogger...I wore denim vests and Toast of New York lipstick (and cut my hair like Kelly Taylor).
Going through these pictures, my personal style hasn't changed that dramatically over the years.  While I did cave to a few trends (many that weren't that awesome), I always liked strong accessories, black with bright colors, and solids over prints.  As I have gotten older, my style has become more refined (fewer flip flops and cargo pants, more pencil skirts and pumps), and more consistent (again, no cargo pants and definitely no lace tanks from Ann Taylor with distressed denim)
How has your personal style evolved over the years?
