Style-Volution: Part Deux

First of all, apologies for not blogging much of late; I’m going through another uninspired patch and I’m trying to think of some different ideas of things I might want to do for the blog, in the future. Also, I'm glad so many people enjoyed the first part of this series! I thought it might've just been my own vain self that liked to look at old pictures of yours truly.

And I’m going to preface this entry by saying that I may, or may not, be leaving out some of my terrible outfit choices. Because there are many. But why not show the best of my style-volution?

2006 was definitely a year when my look changed a fair bit (though not as much as in 2007, I think, but you will see that later) – the biggest change was with my hair. I was forever changing my hair from late 2005 – the end of 2007.


On the left is my first attempt, ever, at a consciously vintage inspired hairstyle.


On the left: best rolls I’ve ever done. They were almost solid with the amount of hairspray I used. Then I got a ‘trendy’ asymmetrical haircut.


I grew the black out of my hair and then got it cut short. My first pincurl set is seen on the right, there.


In between these two outfits I spent a month in the USA – California, New Jersey and New York to be precise. I really didn’t look any different there, surprisingly enough. And you can also see I dyed my hair red.


I loved this hair colour – I rather miss it. Sigh. The hairstyle second from the left made me think of a rockabilly Bride of Frankenstein. 

If you didn’t see the first part of the series, you can see it here. Next up is 2007, when I think I had a bit of a style crisis.

Hope you all enjoyed the second part as much as the first. And you can see 'out-take' shots on flickr, again.

P.S. Remember I'm listing some of the things I no longer want for sale here. Some is my own vintage (40s-80s) and some are pieces I bought with the intention of selling on. I'm also in the process of listing pre-loved clothes on there, too, for shipping costs only. So, keep checking and/or follow the blog!
P.P.S. My friend (I like to think we are friends) Kate is having a sale of her really cute art. Please go buy things from her! Apparently if you tell her I referred you I get more discount but I'm really just keen on seeing her make some money. Go here.


  1. Ah, I adore seeing your "style-volution"! :D

    It is really interesting to see just how much your style has changed throughout the years.

  2. Riikka: Thank-you! =D I'm really glad you're enjoying it.

  3. These are the best posts! I'm interested in what your style crisis is in the next installment.

    You said you were strangely fascinated with raver gear - here's a shot of me in my phat-pants (hope the link works) - scuse the dumb head.....
    ah those were the days ahahaha
    I still have all the clothes though I would never wear them again. They just hold so much sentimental value!

  4. Kitty: Yay! Thank-you. =] It was more of a lack of coherent style, I think...

    Heheh, the link worked. Thanks! That's awesome. =D It's so outrageous, isn't it?

  5. You can really see how your style is starting to transition into what we see in your blog now. I love your hair in the pic with the blue and white spotted dress.

  6. ooooooh i love your red hair! i'm loving these posts :D

  7. I love these posts! Very interesting to see your style-evolution. The red hair really suited you!

  10. Katie: yes, that's true, isn't it? Thanks =]
    Phebe: Hehe, thanks. =D
    Erika: Thank-you! =D I really want red hair again...
    AnnieLindsay-Smith: Hehe, thank-you! =] I loved that, too.
    Rosina: Aw, thank-you. =D I'm so glad you think so.

  11. I love seeing your style evolution! :D I wish I had more pictures of myself in my late teens, but alas, I was pretty boring (I still hadn't come out of my shell, so to speak! That didn't happen until I turned 19/20). You looked so cute with short and red hair too. ;) Enjoying these posts a lot!
