When Cheri Pinktrix of The Vintage Lesbian Project did a style evolution post, back in June, it reminded me that I had wanted to do something like that for a while (though I suppose I did something similar in this post).
Ever since I got my hot little hands on a digital camera (the first was my mother’s in 2004) I’ve been taking rather ridiculous amounts of photos of myself. Someone once told me they wish they had done the same as I literally have a documentation of my youth. Because there are so many photos I’m doing this as a series, starting with the year after I finished high school, right up to when I first started posting pictures on wardrobe_remix, probably.
So, for the first edition, I bring you Andi in 2005 – she was...well, what some would call 'emo', though (whilst loving that no one in my high school really knew what that meant, at the time) I never used the term to describe myself. I turned 19 in 2005, so I'm either 18 or 19 in these photos.
I spent an awful lot of time listening to The Smiths (still my second favourite band). And Bright Eyes, too.
First photo: classic Myspace shot. Ah, those were the days...or, perhaps not.
I really liked leopard print...and black. This is probably why I wear very little black, now.
And I ended the year looking ever so slightly rockabilly.
I hope this was somewhat interesting (especially as I have a few more posts to do, to complete the 'series') - if you want to see some 'out-take' photos, you can find them here on Flickr.
P.S. I kept getting distracted whilst writing this as I was reading through all of my 2005 LiveJournal entries. It's so strange!
