The Evolution of Style
Date: Monday, June 6, 2011
This is one of the few dresses that I spent about $50-$70 for, and I still love it to this day. I love the colors, the subtle butterfly print, the comfortability, just everything is LOVE! Back then, I was less frugal with my spending. Now, I rarely spend more than $50 on one item (outside of a good pair of shoes). It's great that I still have this dress, and that I actually WEAR IT three years later...RARE!
I can honestly say that I don't have a lot of clothing items from 2008 left in my closet. Why? Because I was still figuring out what my style was in 2008. In 2008, I bought some things that were cute, but they weren't "me" - or they didn't flatter my shape as I now know certain cuts can. It really wasn't until LATE 2009, and 2010 that I figured out what my look was. For the past year, I have had some consistency in terms of what was "Monique" what was not "Monique", and what was just AWESOME!
This is the cool thing about style is that it really can evolve and change, mine certainly has.
