Time for another OMCZ challenge!
First of all I just want to say thank you to Steph for organising this challenge and keeping it going, if it wasn't for her email reminders I would most definitely forget especially at the moment when all the days seem to be rolling into one!
Anyway enough rambling, this week it was Steph's turn to choose the theme and here is what she wrote:
Theme: Looking Back
Due: 12th February 2014
My theme is looking back and I’d like us to all look back over the last 12 months since the challenge started and see how we have changed.
It doesn’t matter if this is your first or 26th post in this challenge I think it’s be nice for all of us to look back and reflect on how we have changed in 12 months style wise.
For those of us who did #OMCZ 1 you might like to share that post again and re-do the theme:
Challenge #1: February 27, 2013
Blazing Red - Blazer and Red as the colour to add in the *POP*. Does not have to be a red blazer, just a blazer with the emphasis colour of red incorporated with the blazer somehow.I think this is a good week to try black nail polish!!!
How would you approach it differently?
For everyone, you might want to show your own take on the "blazing red" theme(you don't have to follow the spcific guidelines given just you take on the name)
Or show us something that 12 months ago you never dreamed you’d wear and now wear on a regular basis.
I'd love it if everyone would say how they feel they have changed style / confidence wise in the past 12 months.
This time last year these were the only two dresses that I owned, the thought of wearing a dress especially after gaining weight from being ill sent a shiver down my spine. My work outfits consisted of a nice top and black trousers and my weekend outfits were once again a nice top and jeans.
My recent purchase from Peacocks (and it has pockets!)
Since I started blogging and reading other blogs it has made me feel more confident about trying different items of clothing. I now have 17 dresses (not all pictured) and most days I find that they are the one piece of clothing that I reach for first.
It's taken me a long time to realise that I might actually look good in a dress and if people don't like it then that's their problem, as long as I'm happy and comfortable then me and bubble butt (thanks to Leah for introducing me to this!) will wear as many dresses as we want to!
Now you've had a good old look at me why not check out the other lovely ladies taking part!
